Excerpt: Like most people, I enjoy watching movies in my spare time. Comedies, science fiction, dramas, and thrillers – I’m down with watching all of them. But the genre I love the most are action movies, especially the summer blockbuster. See, I’m an adrenaline junkie.

Excerpt: Where would movies be without the stuntmen? Movies like James Bond and Battlefield Earth would be horribly unexciting. Wait, scratch Battlefield Earth. While the stars of the movie are off complaining about their contracts, the hard-working Hollywood stuntman films the scenes that put our butts in...
