Exclusive: Scott Adkins administers a beatdown in this clip from Close Range

If you've never heard of Scott Adkins before, that's a shame, because the man definitely knows how to kick some ass. Although much of his filmography consists of direct-to-video fare, it'd be a mistake to write them off as films like UNDISPUTED III: REDEMPTION, UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING, and NINJA 2: SHADOW OF A TEAR offer some of the best most hard hitting...

Scott Adkins would love to play a part in Patrick Hughes' The Raid remake

Yeah, I'm not happy about THE RAID remake either, but all we can do is hope it will be just as vicious as the original. And hey, at least Gareth Evans is executive producing the remake, and maybe director Patrick Hughes will find some actors who actually know martial arts. Scott Adkins definitely knows a thing or two about throwing down. Total Film recently asked the...

Scott Adkins is not the Batman in this trailer for Ninja: Shadow of a Tear

Y'know, ever since he was rumored to have tested for the role of Batman in the MAN OF STEEL sequel BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN, I've looked at Scott Adkins a little differently. Okay, actually, I look at him differently now that Ben Affleck has been cast in the role, because hot damn do they look similar. Dark hair, prounounced chin, medium build; these guys could be brothers....

Blu-Ray: Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln hit the shelves this month

If you're like me, then you're still playing catch up on a lot of the Oscar contenders that you may have missed in theaters (I'm down to LES MISERABLES and LIFE OF PI).  Since the studios jam pack the Oscar contenders in the Fall/Winter in order to capitalize on the Academy Awards, most viewers end up short on catching them all.  Now, two of the better nominated films are hitting...

Jessica Chastain is everywhere right now. Last year the actress appeared in six movies (including THE HELP, which earned her an Oscar nomination), while this year she's been featured in "merely" four.

Film critic/troll Armond White explains why Taken 2 and Ghost Rider 2 are better than Zero Dark Thirty

If you don't know who Armond White is, prepare to hate someone more than me. Yeah, I have been accused of being a troll for not liking THE AVENGERS or SERENITY in my UnPopular Opinion columns, but this guy is something else entirely. This is the film critic who is one of the few who robbed TOY STORY 3 from 100% perfection on Rotten Tomatoes. White is the same guy who compared Paul...
