THE CHAMP

THE WRESTLER

2008

Mickey Rourke plays a busted up, has-been pro wrestler in this heavy look at the darker side of pro wrestling. Darren Aronofsky directs this award-winning film, and it stands up. Special Guest Dr. Kirk Hendershott-Kraetzer's Star Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

THE PRINCESS BRIDE

1987

A tongue-in-cheek take on classic fairy tales, The Princess Bride stands the test of time! The suave Wesley (Cary Elwes) takes on R.O.U.S.es, shrieking eels, the Cliffs of Insanity, and even Andre the GIant himself to get back to his beloved Buttercup.

Blockers

The longest yard

2005

Adam Sandler leads a cast of former NFL players and pro wrestlers in this early 2000s remake of a Burt Reynolds classic. The wrestlers might not be household names, but they put on a HELLUVA performance in this ensemble comedy.

Hobbs and shaw

2019

The Rock leads a stellar cast in this non-stop, pedal-to-the-metal action flick. Pretty much everyone in this movie is at their peak awesomeness. Except Roman Reigns. He's as boring as you'd expect.

MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS

2012

Batista is featured as Brass Body in this passion project from RZA combining Kung-Fu and Hip-Hop in this gory trip to Jungle Village. With great characters like Jack Knife, X-Blade and Silver Lion, who couldn't love this film? SPOILER: Apparently Steve.

ready to rumble

2000

Gordie (David Arquette) and Sean (Scott Caan) try to get their idol, Jimmy "The King" back on his feet and back in the WCW title picture. Madcap hijinks, bathroom humor, and a TON of WCW wrestler cameos highlight this classic.

THE MARINE

2006

In John Cena's first shot at a starring role, the Dr. of Thuganomics runs through some swamps, runs/dives away from explosions and beats up T-1000, all to save his wife. Also, there's a horrifying unnecessary back story about Rock Candy. Gross.

MY SPY

2020

Batista takes on his first "Muscle Turkey with a precocious kid sidekick" role in this Amazon original. This one is filled with action, explosions and adorable montages as the big tough guy's gruff exterior gives way to his heart of gold.

BLADE TRINITY

2004

The third installment in the Blade series gave us Ryan Reynolds, Jessica Biel, Patton Oswalt, Natosha Lyonne and, most importantly, Triple H! Unfortunately, Prison Break Dracula and Wesley Snipes were also in it. WOOF. Good Dr Rating: 2/5 Stars

NO HOLDS BARRED

1989

Hulk Hogan does night push-ups on a bed, makes a man poop his pants, stops a diner robbery with pies, and literally kills two people, but is still the goodest good guy ever? What a film.

SEE NO EvIL

2006

If you come to a gross, rundown, nasty hotel to clean it up for your community service, Kane is going to pluck your eyes out...or something. It's like a gritty, rated-R Scooby Doo...but terrible.
