50/50

Michael Caine famously said of his work in "Jaws: The Revenge": "I have never seen the film, but by all accounts it was terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific" ... This week Adam and Josh recognize the dramatic actors who didn’t just collect a paycheck with their Top 5 Action Thespians. Plus, reviews of three 2011 films out now on DVD: "50/50," "Higher Ground" and "Project Nim," and the second film in the Robert Bresson Marathon, "A Man Escaped."
