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.

Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest

Hip-hop giants A Tribe Called Quest are chronicled in the documentary ‘Beats Rhymes & Life.’ You got to get it, got got to get it.


Documentary

Rod Lott
To paraphrase the tagline from “The Social Network,” you don’t get to millions of albums sold without making a few enemies. In the case of A Tribe Called Quest, the enemies number exactly two, which would be all good if they weren’t named Q-Tip and Phife Dawg — half of the pioneering hip-hop act’s lineup.
