3-0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time fave cinematic guilty pleasures
Aw man, I've been waitin' for years to see this cinematic train wreck again (and what a wreck it is!)! Thankfully, I got my chance recently, and took full advantage of it! And now that I have-- twice-- I'm not ashamed to admit that 'No Holds Barred' has joined the ranks of my all-time-fave guilty pleasure movies! No wait, actually I AM ashamed to admit it. But it's too late; the cat's already outta the bag. But hey, how can ya NOT secretly enjoy a dumbed-down, wrestling-themed mix of the 'Rocky' and 'Karate Kid' flicks with a nice helping of other 'beating-the-odds' movie cliches thrown in for good measure? Throw in a little extortion by the evil corporate magnate guy, a ludicrous romantic subplot, a few horrifically choreographed street fight sequences (the wrestling/ultimate fighting parts were all right, though), and a few moments of unintentional humor that got me laughin' 'til the lack of oxygen made me dizzy, and you've got something for the whole family to enjoy. Um, granted all the members of the family had lobotomies first...

Anyhoo, I got a pretty good laugh outta the Hulkster's preciously inept efforts at acting (check out his unbelievably overdone mean streak during the "DOOOKEEYYY!" scene and you'll see what I mean). I mean, he's not even all that great at playing HIMSELF, which is what he's pretty much doin' here as the WWF champion Rip! Even Tiny Lister's work as Rip's nemesis Zeus shows greater acting range and emoting, and he spends most of his time grunting and yelling angrily as he puts the brutal beatdown on guys twice his size! I gotta tell ya, though: that blind lazy eye of his really adds a nice touch of menace to his character's presence... God, how creepy!

Adding to the fun is the guy who plays the rival TV network magnate who tries to lure our hero away from. The channel he wrestles on. Despite his less-than-Oscar-worthy lines, he came across as the perfect guy for the part! His weaselly look, his over-the-top glee at tormenting the hero... this dude hadda be one of the campiest, most cartoonish personifications of corporate evil I've ever seen in a cheeseball flick! Though I thought his 'come-uppance' was somewhat anticlimactic. Ah well-- ya can't win 'em all. Actually, now that I think about it, WWE owner/co-executive producer Vince McMahon would've been great in this part too! Unfortunately, he decided not to try out his thespian abilities (*snicker*) until the dawn of the WWE's 'Attitude Era' several years after this silly stinker hit the 'plexes...

Anyhoo, if you're willin' to catch a trashy sports/underdog-overcoming-the-odds-to-win-it-all flick that is sure to lose ya a few IQ points after one viewing, 'No Holds Barred' is the flick to see. Follow this up with one of the Hulkster's other "blockbusters" (*SNICKER*), and you'll be a regular crash-helmet-wearing short bus rider in no time flat!

5-0 out of 5 stars Hulk Hogan Lives!!!!!
I just saw this movie on VHS and wondering why isn't it on DVD yet. This is a very good wrestling movie due to Hulk Hogan.
Hulk Hogan is the best wrestler for 30 years. I really enjoyed this movie a lot.
If you like Hulk Hogan riping shirt action this movie is for you. Get it were you can.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Movie of 1989
No Holds Barred could be the best movie ever made. How did the Acadamy over look this movie for best picture in 1989. Not since Rocky III have we seen Hulk Hogan light up the big screen like he does in this movie. RIP Thomas (played by Hul Hogan) is a successful wrestling champion who is is forced to battle the ultimate oponent, Zeus (Tom "Tiny" Lister Jr.) The movie brings you to the edge of your seat with a climatic battle with Zeus and will leave searching for those tissues when RIP's brother (Mark Pellegrino("Murph Calzone in Drowning Mona") is tragically paralyzed. My favorite scene in the movie is when RIP is caught up in a violent robbery at a diner. Instead of surrending to the crooks, he throws pies and other baked goods at them. He through them so fast the robbers did not have time to fire their machine guns. I dont want to give to much away, if you have not seen this movie you are depriving yourself of cinematic genious! I am still waiting for the DVD version so I can see behind the scenes footage of thhis masterpiece.

4-0 out of 5 stars No Holds Barred Is Just Plain Fun!
Over a decade before The Rock became a movie star in "Scorpion King", big Hulk Hogan got his chance to be a movie star. Who could forget his starring debut as WWF champion, Rip Thomas? Rip is the biggest star on cable and this is bad news for a competing network run by the evil Mr. Brell (played by Kurt Fuller), who demands Rip sign to his station. Rip won't do it though as he is signed with another company and "his word is his bond". When he is turned down, Brell looks elsewhere for talent and promotes a tough man contest where the winner gets a whole lot of money and a spot on his network. Enter Zeus, a convicted killing machine who takes out the competition.

While Zeus makes for huge ratings, Brell still isn't happy. He wants to promote a match between Zeus and Rip. He will stop at nothing to get it either as he hires a female assistant to seduce Rip and has Zeus hospitalize his little brother. This of course sends Rip on a rampage and results in the ultimate showdown between the two massive stars.

This movie is one of those "so corny, it's great" films and actually inspired several real-life matches between Hogan and actor Lister on WWF pay-per-view. Fuller as the scumbag network executive is just priceless and the scene where Hogan's Rip is getting pummeled while his brother watches from his wheelchair and sad music plays in the background is reason enough to pick up this forgotten gem. Hogan has never been better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tremendous!
THIS MOVIE OWNS! Best Hogan movie ever. We NEED a DVD release of it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Bomb!!!!!!!!!
I love all of Billy Zane's movies and this is one of his best great love story with some comedy. If it wasn't for the fact that I saw Head Above Water this would have been on the top of my list!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC!!!!
This movie is a classic indie. It has all the elements you would expect from an indie comedy/drama. A must have for any funky film fanatic.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Cult Classic!!!
This was a great flick! I first saw it a few years back at a friends place. Ever since then I've been looking for it everywhere. A must for Billy Zane fans. Hip, with an original plot that twists and turns. A great addition to any offbeat video collection.!

1-0 out of 5 stars Didn't live up to the "hype"
For all the people who said this was such a great, quirky little movie, "Must See"...I was really, really disappointed. Even if I never heard of it before and saw it on TV, I would have stopped 1/2 through. It had maybe two laughs...otherwise, this would have been a great project for someone in junior college film school. A terrific waste of Zane, Beals and especially Harry Shearer. Could have been much more over-the-top with two more script revisions.

2-0 out of 5 stars Quirky, Offbeat,...Disappointing
I'd exhausted the recommendations of the local video specialist and was looking for that quirky original gem for a movie that would keep me entertained and be able to pass on to friends and family as a hot rental. As I was rather new to the Internet and this site I took to heart this movie when I read the prevoius reviews and figured this was the one.

To say the least disappointing. The characters were quirky, offbeat and original but the movie plodded along at a rather pedestrian pace with little or no dynamics. To me it was a movie that was trying to be too odd, offbeat, etc. but tried too hard to be different to a fault. It certainly lost the attention of the spouse after the first 15 minutes, but I can't use her as a barometer to judge movies. Still it was like watching an un-popular guest at a party trying to overcompensate and instead coming off as un-popular AND desperate.

I've definitely seen worse but I was hoping for more. A disappointing rent for $3.50. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars 976-Evil 2: The Astral Factor
The majority of the plot deals with pretty coed Robin (Debbie James), who learns that her dean, Prof. Grubeck (Rene Assa), is a sorority girl murderer who has made a deal with the devil. In exchange for his soul, Grubeck can project his rotting ghost to kill. Leather bound bad boy, Spike (Patrick O'Bryan), joins forces with Robin who has developed a psychic link with the maniac.

Not a really horrible flick, but not really that good either. The make up effects are crude, the acting is a bit rough, and the ending is a disappointing attempt at a twist. Some of the scenes are real gems though, including one in which one of Robin's friends (Leslie Ryan) is watching It's a Wonderful Life on TV. Grubeck pops up on a commercial, sucks her into the movie, and combines it with Night of the Living Dead.

3-0 out of 5 stars It can't help being entertaining. Check the cast and crew
Sorority girl murderer ...makes a deal with the devil thatallows him to escape his physical form during lights out and killothers. A friend with a psychic link is terrorized by the maniac and teams up with a leather bound bad boy to stop him. Pretty good most of the time but the make up effects are something crude and the ending is disappointing. Who would of thought? Look for the average appearences from cast members of Sorority House Massacre sequels and backgrounds for in-jokes. END

3-0 out of 5 stars AWFUL,IN A GOOD WAY
First thing first,this movie has horrible acting and the story is kinda of silly.But it is so creative and the special affects are halfway decent.But the first one was better.There is no Sandy Dennis or Stephen Gefforeys in this movie but it still lacks a awful but good movie. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars NOT ON THE COUCH!
"That's what the plastic's for, a**hole!"

I love this movie so much, namely for the comedic antics of Stephen Geoffreys. Who can forget him riding his scooter and then falling off of it? Who could not love when it rains fishes from the sky!

"If you value your life, I suggest you leave me alone."

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Well, the DVD itself isn't so excellent
One of the best "fun" horror movies of the 80's. Perfect atmosphere, great acting, nostalgic for those of us in our 30's. I think most people writing the reviews before me summed up the movie nicely. But I'm here to talk about the DVD itself, since you might buy it and think it's going to be top quality. We all expect top quality when we buy DVDs, so we're always disappointed when we buy a great movie like this and find that it's presented in FULL SCREEN. Also, no features. It's a cheap production, and the movie isn't as sharp and clear as should be. But it's not bad, it's serviceable. I don't think it's worth the price they're asking, but it's a hell of a lot better than the VHS copy I have.

5-0 out of 5 stars 976-EVIL, Great 80's horror fun
I just picked up a copy of this movie and I must say I was not disappointed. I think it was hilarious and it really did strike me hard as an 80's film, but it seemed to make fun of that too. I really must give Robert Englund a big shout out for not having anyone in the nude, not even the basic full frontal. He still got scenes, where other movies would have gone for nudity, across effectively and I know I greatly appreciate it. Ok, so you did see a little bit of the top of the girl, but over all no excessive t and a, it was done in a tasteful way. I also love hearing Robert as the preacher on the television program that you hear in the background. I was really blown away near the end by Robert Picardo(from Star Trek Voyager), he did an amazing job as he always does. Overall a fun movie, but don't expect to be terrified, just expect some fun and some surprises and to have some fun at 80's horror's expense. keep the faith, dEx

4-0 out of 5 stars Stephen is GREAT!

Sam Dietz (Leo Rossi: 'Halloween 2', 'Maniac Cop 2'), a cop from New York, has made detective grade. He is re-assigned to the Los Angeles Police Department, and his first assignment is to track down a relentless serial killer, who chooses his victims from the phone book.

Judd Nelson puts in the finest performance of his carreer, as Arthur 'Buck' Taylor, the disturbed maniac who harbours a personal vendetta against the police department.

Robert Loggia (Bill Malloy) is on top form as Dietz's older, and more experienced, partner. Loggia is an accomplished supporting actor, having played prominent roles throughout his carreer in films like 'The Lost Highway', 'Gladiator', and 'Scarface'. He is apltly cast in the detective duo role, and played a similar character alonside Martin Sheen in 'The Believers'.

William Lustig ('Maniac Cop' 1, 2 & 3; 'Maniac') is renown for his portrayal of maniacal characters, and has directed some excellent horror/slasher films in his time. 'Relentless' stands alongside 'Maniac Cop' as one of his most accomplished achievements as a director.

Sinister, edge-of-the-seat action.

Late night viewing recommended ... but don't answer the phone!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not all that it's cracked up to be
Relentless was Judd Nelson's best film. Though it's not great at all, the kills are stupid, and so is the story. If you want a really good serial killer movie, buy The watcher with Keanu Reeves. This film was stupid and not at all frightening or grotesque like they said it would be. It could have been much better. But I give Judd Nelson 5 stars for doing his best in this film. Though the story and plot stunk.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than the usual slaher flick.
I watched this movie thinking it was just going to be another slasher flick. Boy, was I wrong. All of the actors are first rate, especially Nelson as the demented killer. Buy this movie now! Note: This film is not for the squeamish!

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than most of the "stalk and slash" films.
Though not one of my favorites, Judd Nelson gives his best performance in Relentless,playing a serial killer. Director William Lustig has made several films about maniacs,but Relentless is one of his best. With a supporting cast including Leo Rossi and Robert Loggia, Relentless is superior to many of the mad slasher movies of its genre. ... Read more

You don't have to be a baseball lover to appreciate this funny, touching story of minor-league ball and major-league dreams. Pastime is the most realistic depiction of the nonglamour side of sports as played by the people who seem to love it the most. William Russ stars as an aging pitcher, now in his 40s, who only got to pitch once in the majors. Still hanging on in the minors in the late 1950s, he can't believe his career could be over. Ridiculed for his enthusiasm by his much-younger teammates, he befriends the team's outcast, a young black pitcher (Glenn Plummer) with a cannon for an arm, and imparts what wisdom he has to offer. A movie that will make you ask: Why isn't Russ a star?--Marshall Fine ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best baseball film you've never seen..
Pastime focuses on two minor league pitchers in the 1950's. The first is an older pitcher named Roy Dean (William Russ). Roy had a "cup of coffee" in the major leagues when he was younger, but was sent back down to the minors shortly after. Years later, he is still playing in the minors and refuses to accept the fact that it is time for him to retire. Roy is told by the team's manager Clyde Bigby (Noble Willingham)that the team owner Peter LaPorte ( Jefferey Tambor)is getting ready to release him. Shortly after, an up and coming African American pitcher named Tyrone( Glen Plummer)joins the team. Tyrone has got a major league arm, but is extremely shy and unsure of himself because he is a 17 year old black kid. Roy sees potential in Tyrone, and takes him under his wing to teach him about the finer points of the game, and more importantly, the finer points of life.

Pastime is perhaps one of the greatest baseball films ever made. It is a shame that no one really knows about it. The film is extremely realistic when it comes to the minor league atmosphere of the 1950's. William Russ and Glen Plummer both do an amazing job in their roles. Pastime also happens to be one of the best "buddy" films I have ever seen because of the relationship that develops between the two. It is very touching to see Roy pass on all his knowledge to Tyrone to help him get to the majors. The reason the film is inspiring, is because both Roy and Tyrone are underdogs. Everyone sees Roy as a pitcher past his prime, and no one takes him seriously. No one on the team respects Tyrone because he is a black man. Watching the two of them face the odds together is amazing. The ending to this film is extremely emotional and definately a tear jerker. It was also extremely satisfying.

Overall, Pastime is one of the best baseball films I have ever seen. William Russ and Glen Plummer offer outstanding performances, and the film is very realistic with both the baseball action and the atmosphere of the 1950's. I highly recommend this film.

A solid 5 stars...

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly great baseball movie
A fictional story that captures the essence of minor league baseball in a small town in the 1950's. William Russ (Roy Dean Bream) is great as an aging pitcher, whose dedication and love for the game contrasts with the flippant and immature attitudes of some of the younger players. Glenn Plummer (Tyrone Debray) portrays a 17 year old black pitcher making his start in the minors. Roy Dean becomes friend and mentor to Tyrone. Russ's character has a health condition that is kept secret, revealed in the end of this poignant story. The baseball action is realistic, rare in baseball movies.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just another baseball movie...
Want to see a great baseball film, without major stars or sexist overtones and language? This movie has it all. The drive and passion of an "over the hill player" on his way out who befriends a young black player trying to enter the big leagues in the 1950's, is the focus of this film. Great dialogue, fantastic acting, and bring some Kleenex. Similiar to "Bang the Drum Slowly" in pace, this is a keeper for all baseball fans young and old

5-0 out of 5 stars Now, this is baseball!
Casting, detail to to the emotions and charm of the game, and the very heart of the minor league-the people that make the game.

The kind of movie you don't mind seeing over and over. This movie depicts one player's love for the game, a coaches dedication to game and the abilities of his players, and also the reality of what the minor leagues were all about.

I guess what impressed me the most what the script. The dialogue was appropriate, as was the content. A family movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best baseball movie ever made
... and perhaps the best movie, period, is "Pastime," a perfect blend of character study and morality play, both a slice-of-life and larger-than-life view of minor-league ball in the late 1950s and a portrait of a protagonist worthy of anyone's admiration. The casting and acting (particularly of William Russ in the main role and Noble Willingham as the manager) are superb. All the other elements of the film - its reality, its values, its script (many choice and insightful lines), its cinematography, its music (particularly "Swing Low"), its attention to detail, its real-star cameos - engage both the mind and the heart. The only reason I can see why it has not received more notice is a lack of marketing and big-name stars. "Capra-esque" in the best sense, it puts to shame "Major League" and would-be mythic silliness as "The Natural." - Clay Eals ... Read more
