Either we could sit you down and explain to you all the ways that Guy Pearce is one of the best actors working today, or Nicolas Cage can do it.

We're going to assume you chose the latter.

The duo recently starred in the thriller, "Seeking Justice," which is now headed to DVD and Blu-ray. In this exclusive featurette from the disc, Cage explains what it's like to work with Pearce and why that is so much fun.

"Guy Pearce is very precise and clear about understanding the rhythm and the music of a scene," Cage said. "When I say 'premise,' I mean that he'll go through the script many times and really get down underneath it and get down into the nuts and bolts and ask me questions about 'How does this line up for you? How does that track for you?' That's unusual to be perfectly direct. Not many film actors do that. Not many actors led you know or include you on where they want to go to see if that works with you. So that's nice, and it's refreshing to have that."

"Seeking Justice" comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on June 19.

When you think of Sherlock Holmes, you probably imagine him in his study at 221B Baker Street in Londontown, but that's the old Holmes. Robert Downey, Jr.'s take on the famous detective, the news Holmes, is a world-traveling, smart ass with a quick whit and a mean right hook.

In this exclusive featurette from the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of Downey's second film as Holmes, "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," the actor chronicles just where the story takes his character this time around.

"The story starts in London. It goes basically though the countryside very fast and to the coast, hops across the channel, winds us down to Paris, then from Paris to Germany, and Germany to Switzerland," Downey says in his typical matter-of-fact way.

"Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" is out on DVD and Blu-ray today!

In a previous life, Dwayne Johnson was The Rock, the egotistical most electrifying man in sports entertainment. Today, we know him as the lead actor in movies like "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" and "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and according to his co-stars, one of the nicest guys around.

With today's Blu-ray release of "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," we have an exclusive look behind the scenes of "Journey 2" with Johnson's co-stars talking about their time working with the "gentle giant."

To celebrate the video release of the Ryan Reynolds-Denzel Washington thriller, "Safe House," tomorrow (June 5) on Blu-ray and DVD. We have an exclusive clip from one of the featurettes on the disc.

The clip examines one of the central chase scenes from the movie and the amount of work that goes into preparing the stunts. The rooftop chase scene clearly involves an incredibly complicated set-up, featuring stunt men galore.

The scene also called for Ryan Reynolds to pretend to knock a guy senseless, something he didn't seem totally comfortable with. "It is kind of weird," he said. "You go from a moment where you're just trying to snatch the life right out of somebody, and then the next, you're helping them up off the ground, wondering if he broke anything."

What did you think of our exclusive clip from the "Safe House" Blu-ray and DVD? Let us know in the comments below and on Twitter!
