Back in 2013, director Ilya Naishuller made a short first person music video entitled Biting Elbows: Bad Motherf*cker.

In my opinion, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most underrated movies of the year so far.  It had everything an adult action film should have.  It was fast paced, full of explosions, had a real plot and great CGI.  I can't understand why it received such bad reviews when it ran in theaters, but I for on...

In today's day and age, war is a constant. We send our troops out to various countries around the world and have to ask ourselves if the damages are really worth it sometimes.  With the advanced technology that now exists in the military, some argue there are less casualties, but, in some cases, the opposite could be true.
