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.

Charlotte's Fridge


None June 9th, 2007

Reviewer's grade: C+

 

A family of three (one of whom, inexplicably, is a puppet) travels with its chauffeur to a spooky mansion to dine with a woman named Ramona. It turns out that Ramona has a motive other than pleasant dinner conversation, followed by a slice of pie: Her zombie daughter, Charlotte, who lives in the refrigerator to prevent undue rotting, is impatiently waiting to eat the guests.

The family narrowly escapes becoming the next meal for the hideous/hilarious-looking Charlotte, but not before Ramona comes to a bad, though predictable, end. While a little long at 18 minutes, "Charlotte's Fridge" is still entertaining enough.

 

Between the switchblade-wielding heroine and her puppet brother, not to mention the title character, this urban legend-style Gothic tale is good for at least a few laughs.
