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.

’Bourne’s supremacy


The metal man hits the big screen, and we don’t mean Tony Stark.

By Rod Lott August 18th, 2011

I don’t know that our fine city’s Rev. Steve would agree, but “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne.” 

That’s the title of a new documentary about hard-rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, formerly lead singer vocalist of Black Sabbath, more recently an MTV laughingstock. For three years, Ozzy was followed by directors Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli to capture his life story. The only thing more remarkable that his career has lasted so many decades is that he’s still alive. Hopefully, the doc will detail all of that.

Narrated by Ozzy’s son, Jack, who also co-produced the film, “God Bless” also features interviews with Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee, Sharon Osbourne and more.

Anyway, Oklahoma City has exactly one chance to see this on the big screen: 7:30 p.m. Monday at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24. For more information and tickets, visit FathomEvents.com.

If you go, BYOB (that last letter stands for “bat,” of course). —Rod Lott
