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.

Recently Deceased

None June 8th, 2007

n 0pt">"Recently Deceased" is about a guy named Jim. Seconds after winning the lottery, Jim is murdered by his acquaintance Reggie, who desperately wants to open a bakery with the money. The kink is that Jim hasn't completed that day's to-do list, so he rises from the dead to buy a headband and take out the trash, among other things.


Along the way, Jim recovers his memory enough to complete one final, premonitory list item before crawling back into his shallow grave. Despite, or maybe because of, clumsy makeup effects (Jim's rubber ear has to be held on with his new headband) and the director's unexplained impulse to label objects with a permanent marker, this short possesses a quirky, homemade charm that helps it somewhat transcend its limited production value.
