25 Stars Who Can Totally Kick Your Ass

25 Celebrities Who Have Black Belts
Achieving a black belt involves a lot of hard work, focus, and dedication. Several stars in Hollywood have put in the necessary time and energy to obtain the rank -- and some may surprise you.

Sarah Michelle Gellar has studied kickboxing, boxing, and gymnastics and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Her experience came in handy while she filmed the popular cult TV series "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" from 1997 to 2003. Of course, a stunt double did most of the work.

Gellar has also appeared in the films "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "The Grudge" and "Cruel Intentions." She most recentl...

Q&A: 'InSight' Director Richard Gabai

10/15/2011 11:00am EDT
For every movie that you hear about, there's probably at least a dozen that you don't. It shouldn't surprise you that some of those flicks that don't get a big release or promo push are really, really good. Maybe even better than those big blockbusters that do get all the attention.

I recently spoke with Richard Gabai, director of InSight. The flick stars Natalie Zea (of Justified fame) as an ER nurse who begins experiencing the memories of a young stabbing victim whose life she tries to save. She partners with the detective working the case (Sean Patrick Flanery of Boondock Saints) t...

'Insight' Cast Recalls Haunted Set

The cast and crew of new thriller Insight were left spooked during night shoots while filming at an abandoned hospital, which has been listed as one of the most haunted sites in Los Angeles.

Linda Vista Community Hospital in Boyle Heights, where the pilot for E.R. was shot, has been shuttered for 20 years - following a string of lawsuits connected to the place's unexpectedly high death rates.

It has been the site of several televised paranormal investigations and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.

And Insight director Richard Gabai admits it was a very spo...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Monsters,' 'Saw 3D,' & More

Saw 3D
Last year I criticized Clint Eastwood’s film “Invictus” for trying too hard to be inspirational, but after seeing his latest work “Hereafter,” I’m convinced it suffers from the exact opposite problem. “Hereafter” does not work hard enough to be upbeat, concentrating on all the most depressing aspects of death, rather than focusing on the positive concept of afterlife that it introduces. If you have not had the chance, check out my full review here.

Two horror movies and an action thriller will be opening in theaters this Halloween weekend. You’ll have the chance to see the sci-fi horro...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'This Is It,' 'Boondock Saints II' & More

The House of the Devil
As a Bostonian I'm quite excited about the release of the Boston based sequel "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day." As a huge fan of the original, I've waited years to see a sequel come to fruition.

For nearly 10 years, director Troy Duffy struggled to make the follow up to his 1999 cult hit "Boondock Saints." A Hollywood outsider, Duffy suffered from bad press characterizing him as incredibly difficult to work with. This created a major roadblock for him as he sought funding to make a second movie about the MacManus brothers, but eventually he was able to raise the money to make it h...

After 19 Years, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' Phenomenally Exhumes Venerated Roots

Indiana Jones
( – After such a long respite from the beloved film progression, I was initially just as skittish about seeing Harrison Ford back in the Indy saddle as I was watching Sylvester Stallone back in the ring in “Rocky Balboa” in his 2006 comeback and then again in 2008 in his “Rambo” return.

Ultimately, though, I had faith in director Steven Spielberg not to royally torpedo the monolithically anticipated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which resurrects the Chicago-born, 65-year-old Harrison Ford as one of my favorite film characters of all time.
