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.

In Darkness


Drama

Phil Bacharach
It’s not as if there’s been a grievous shortage of movies detailing the horrors of the Holocaust. Even so, Poland’s In Darkness, which is scheduled to open Friday at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, adds something to the cinematic discussion, chiefly in the form of its unlikely hero.

Game Change

Not nearly as good as the book, but vote Moore for the Emmy.


Drama

Rod Lott
Nearly every scene of HBO's telefilm Game Change, I recall from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's excellent nonfiction book of the same thing. But the movie directed by Jay Roach (of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises) only tells half — maybe even one-quarter — of the story, ignoring the 2008 presidential-campaign narratives of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for the one it finds most compelling: that of Sarah Palin and John McCain, and not the other way around.
