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.

The Lunchbox

The Lunchbox is a lip-smacking crowd pleaser.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Sometimes you must board the wrong train to get to the right station. It’s a bit of wisdom that figures prominently in — and is offered by — The Lunchbox, a sweetly engaging Hindi-language film about two wounded souls who make an accidental but vital connection in the Indian city of Mumbai. What makes an already-appealing movie all the more delicious is that it is set in motion by food.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel — with its polarizing auteurism — is quintessential Wes Anderson.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach

There isn’t much middle ground when it comes to how one feels about Wes Anderson, the filmmaker behind Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom. His meticulous visual style and unflagging quirkiness have won both ardent fans and detractors; one viewer’s delight is another viewer’s preciousness.

Tim's Vermeer

In the fascinating Tim’s Vermeer, a man seeks to replicate a Vermeer masterpiece through mirrors and lenses.


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
The question of what makes art has fueled debate ever since prehistoric man began etching on the walls of caves, or at least ever since college students began frequenting coffeehouses. Tim’s Vermeer, a documentary by the magician duo Penn & Teller, doesn’t exactly shed light on the definition of art, but it does contribute to the conversation by examining that arcane place where art and technology intersect.

The Wind Rises

The Wind Rises is a high-flying exit for master animator Hayao Miyazaki


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Fans of Hayao Miyazaki were understandably disappointed when Japan’s master animator announced that his latest feature, The Wind Rises, would also be his last. The 73-yearold filmmaker has given us some of animation’s most brilliant and beautiful works, including My Neighbor Totoro and 2001’s Oscar-winning Spirited AwaySo, yeah, the guy has definitely earned his retirement, and the studio he helped found, Studio Ghibli, is sure to continue making terrific pictures. But it doesn’t make Miyazaki’s departure any less bittersweet.

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.

The Past

The Past, an explosive tale of relationships in crisis, is another triumph for Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Asghar Farhadi burst on the international stage with 2011’s Oscar-winning A Separation, but he was making great movies in his native Iran well before the world took notice. It’s not surprising, then, that the director is no fly-by-night talent. His latest, The Past, is another brutally effective exploration of domestic crisis.
