This Week In Home Entertainment: Anchorman 2, Fargo, 47 Ronin And More
Knights of BadassdomWhile 47 Ronin doesnít work as a B-movie, Joe Lynchís Knights of Badassdom certainly does. The horror-comedy film is set on the field of a live-action role-playing game featuring a group of roleplayers who unwittingly unleash an angry succubus onto the premises. The crew must then work together to save their friends and comrades from arduous deaths, but it may be too late.
Even the filmís extras are unabashedly ridiculous. Thereís a pretty self-explanatory "Summer Glau Hottie Montage" and two separate and cleverly named "horr-o-medy" featurettes on the disc, which look at how the film was an homage to movies that were made back in the eighties. Plenty of interviews from the movieís stars also pepper the disc. Speaking of the actors, Knights of Badassdom is peppered with popular TV actors, including True Bloodís Ryan Kwanten, Game of Thronesí Peter Dinklage, Tremeís Steve Zahn, Breakout Kingís Jimmi Simpson, Communityís Danny Pudi, Arrowís Summer Glau, and former Revenge actress Margarita Levieva. The whoís who game with the actors is almost as fun as the movie itself, and while this one wonít make your top 10 of the year list, it wonít be a regretful waste of a Tuesday night, either.
