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.

Strings. Sharing. Shoes. Ssssh! The movie’s starting!

• Get your “Goat” when a slew of musical master talents — including Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Stuart Duncan and vocalist Aoife O’Donovan — combine for “The Goat Rodeo Sessions Live,” a multigenre concert screening at 6:30 p.m. tonight at AMC Quail Springs 24, Cinemark Tinseltown and, in Norman, Hollywood Spotlight 14. For more information, visit

• Too lazy to get out for a movie? Then type this in on your Google machine: (Or just look below, if you’re that lazy.) Through today, that lets you watch mumblecore giant Joe Swanberg’s new film, “Marriage Material,” for the price of $0.00, courtesy of Factory 25.

It’s about a young couple who agree to babysit a pal’s baby pictured for a day; much talking ensues. Swanberg’s style is not for me, but far be it from me to deny you from determining whether you share such sentiment.

• Oklahoma City University Film Institute’s series sets its sights on Iran with “Children of Heaven,” about two poor siblings who share a pair of shoes. The acclaimed 1997 family drama shows for free at 2 p.m. Feb. 5 in the Kerr-McGee Auditorium of the Meinders School of Business, 2501 N. Blackwelder. For more information, call 208-5472. —Rod Lott
