The 15 Hottest Female Fighters in Martial Arts Movies

As a boy, you’d run away if the girl whose hair you pulled on the playground answered with a smack. Nowadays, you’re a man grown. And a lady who can kick, punch, and headbutt while looking like a model fresh off the catwalk is a marvel. After all, she can double as your date and your bodyguard. She’ll look hot all through karaoke then back you up if the biker guy with enough rings to qualify as brass knuckles runs his mouth. She’ll have your back if a plague hits and mutant zombies overtake our planet. And if you ever have to race off on any sort of quest, she’ll be right there next to you with her killer uppercut.

30 MPG: Ten Fun Cars That Won’t Break The Bank At The Pump

Since we don’t think we’re ever going to see truly “cheap” gas again, we figure it’s high time to trade in that gas guzzler on something a little sportier. For the first time ever, we’ve been able to find 10 fun-to-drive cars that all net at least 30 mpg on the highway. Each of these offers truly impressive thrills for enthusiasts. Our list was a little longer until we started throwing out cars like the Kia Optima Turbo and the Buick Regal Turbo. Sure, they might pack decent power, but they’re just not the kind of cars that will draw attention at your neighborhood car show. They’re fun on a different kind of scale. Instead, we chose to concentrate on cars that will truly delight enthusiasts. Our criteria was simple: Each car had to net at least 30 mpg on the highway and each has to be genuinely fun to drive. We didn’t necessarily pick the most eco-friendly model in each lineup – we picked the ones we’d most want to enjoy on a closed course or on a winding country road.

These Are The 12 Preppiest Colleges In America

Remember when “preppy” was an insult? I sure don’t. That was from our parents’ generation–the hippies born after the Baby Boom who decided it was solidly uncool to, you know, wear pastels, care about their appearance, join a fraternity, or do anything that was seen to be part of “the establishment.” Thankfully for us, preppy is once again back in style, and boys remembered how to dress. We’ve come a long way since Cher Horowitz’s era of greasy hair and baggy pants.

Top 10 World War II TV Series

World War II might be the "popular" war, but it's rarely the subject of popular TV series. Of course, Hogan's Heroes and McHale's Navy had long runs in the 1960s, but the military battlefield is covered with dead bodies of short-lived WWII dramas -- and a few comedies. And since the 1960s, the subject matter of war has largely been ignored in TV series. There are a few exceptions: M*A*S*H (Korean War); China Beach and Tour of Duty (Vietnam War). On Sunday, March 14, 2010 at 9pm ET/PT, HBO premieres the first installment of its 10-part WWII miniseries, The Pacific. In honor of this event, TV Tango selected the top 10 World War II TV sitcoms and dramas. No miniseries. No TV movies. No documentaries. Just scripted TV series.

American History X: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Controversial Edward Norton Movie

It's been 15 years since the release of "American History X" (on October 30, 1998), and to this day, the movie stands as a riveting and brutal drama about the persistence of white-supremacist racism in America. It cemented Edward Norton's reputation as the premier Method actor of his generation, and it included at least one scene (the infamous curb-stomp sequence) that's been copied by everyone from "The Sopranos" to "Family Guy." Yet to this day, many viewers still don't know the often even more dramatic story that went on behind the scenes of the film, in which first-time feature director Tony Kaye fought with Norton and distributor New Line over the final cut of the film. He ultimately filed a $200 million lawsuit because he preferred to be credited as Humpty Dumpty rather than allow the studio's cut to be released under his name. Read on to learn more about Kaye's epic and absurd battles to preserve his vision (and how they led to Kaye's epic sabotage of his own career), as well as the rest of the off-camera drama behind "American History X."

The 7 New Rules of Grilling

After a successful career as a bass guitarist in various indie rock bands, Bryan Mayer, age 41, decided to switch disciplines and eventually settled on butchering. He read a few books, hacked apart some animals and trained under some "old school" butchers from Austria and Germany who may or may not have learned how to cut meat in prison. Mayer now serves as head butcher (and co-owner) at Philadelphia's Kensington Quarters, a whole animal butcher shop and restaurant. "Butchering is like playing music or painting, you learn from all the masters and then you go find your own way," Mayer says. To help you find your own way, Mayer has offered up the following seven new rules for buying the cut of meat you want and grilling it up to perfection.
