No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Knights of Badassdom

In 2008, the third act of the guy comedy Role Models used LARPing — live-action role-playing, that is — as a backdrop for our protagonists' lessons learned. Today, Knights of Badassdom extends that half-hour into a full feature, to the point where viewers are left not smiling, but exhausted.

Switched on

Not everything on television has to appeal to mass audiences. In fact, with the further fractioning of viewership thanks to alternatives like Netflix and VOD, more series can afford to become more niche. Here are five examples of shows both past and present — and new to DVD and/or Blu-ray — that encompass some of the more outrageous ideas ever to go beyond boardroom discussion.

Wills power

Oklahoma legend Bob Wills finally gets his cinematic due thanks to OKPOP.


Features

Louis Fowler
Chuck Berry. Little Richard. Elvis Presley. These are usually the first names that come to mind when rattling off who the originators of rock and roll were. Sadly, only to those in the know, the name Bob Wills — the King of Western Swing — very rarely makes the list. But if Tulsa’s Oklahoma Museum of Pop Culture (OKPOP) has its way, it could rewrite the pop music history books forever.

Superheroic 

Christopher Nolan’s three Batman movies have been issued together on Blu-ray before, but not as lavishly and bells-and-whistles-laden as with the six-disc The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition ($99.97), limited to 141,000 sets. As if the films weren’t excellent in themselves, the sturdy box houses three Bat-toys, one 48-page book and five art prints by cult illustrator Mondo.

Film preservation

The revival of The Paramount OKC theater has the historic Film Row district beaming once again.


Features

Shawn Lealos

When Oklahoma became a state back in 1907, the film industry moved into the area now known as the Film Exchange District, or Film Row. In those days of early cinema, studios set up screening houses across the country for theater owners to preview movies and decide which ones they would carry.

Hogan’s Fable

An Oklahoma City filmmaker’s feature film debut is set to premiere at this weekend’s Austin Film Festival.


Features

Molly Evans
One cold night in early January 2011, an Oklahoma City-based filmmaker returned from a drink at the bar to housesit his parents’ old, empty abode. But the familiarity of the attic, staircase and the basement door quickly faded when a mass blackout affected the entire neighborhood. Vinnie Hogan has replayed this horrifying scenario since childhood, and he met this dark fate not only with the illumination of his cellphone but also with the idea for his first feature film.
