Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.
A good fight scene is built into the fabric of an action film such that you can sense it coming like a storm on the horizon. It’s in the details of the opponents: the cracking of knuckles, the puffing of chests, the staredowns that say, “It’s about to go down.” A good fight scene makes you want to cover your eyes yet is impossible to look away from. You get tingly waiting for the violence to erupt, and if it’s done its job, you come away dizzy, invigorated, or even nauseated. »

He departed following the third season to pursue a big screen career, starring in films like "The Last Boy Scout," "Blankman" and "Major Payne." But during his time with the show, he left an unmistakable signature that can be felt across a number of colorful characters. Think of "In Living Color" and you're bound to have the image of an angry, put-upon clown flash through your head (Homey D. Clown), or perhaps a pair of flamboyant critics giving the weekend's latest release "two snaps up" ("Men On…"). These were some of Wayans' trademark sketches, coming at a time when, as he says in our extended feature on the series' 25th anniversary, he was eager for redemption after being fired from "Saturday Night Live." Here are the beginnings and inspirations for those sketches and more, »

The singer, who went out before Hilton in yesterday's live double eviction, also touched on his previous admission of being homeless, and revealed that Katie Price has asked him to be her wedding singer.
Speaking to Digital Spy and others about how he feels now he's left the house, he laughed: "Talk about twisted fairytale... I mean you couldn't have even wrote it, I need psychotherapy for the next two years!"
On what almost drove him mad, he replied: "Perez singing the musical theatre numbers while frothing at the mouth... was quite a moment. I mean it was the Perez Show, but it was dark and twisted."
Kavana did say, however, that Hilton had "been really good these last few days. He is just like a giant, »
