Everything Wrong With X2: X-Men United In 4 Minutes Or Less
Say what?! Back-to-back sins videos? We’re doubling down this week on X-men movies, following up yesterday’s effort with a rundown of all the sins we could find in X2: X-Men United.
With just a little “enhancement” this ad for 20th Century Fox’s The Wolverine was improved by leaps and bounds.

Deadpool vs Comic-Con 2013
Deadpool makes his return to Comic-Con International (San Diego, CA)
A Nord’s last thought should be of home.
Led to Skyrim by the legendary Ysgramor, the fair humans from Atmora are known for their prowess as warriors and their almost impervious resistance to the cold. Having a homeland like Atmora is like growing up in Northern Alaska then moving to Southern Illinois; a harsh winter blizzard is like the first day of summer on the coast back home. This doesn’t mean that the Nords don’t get a bit chilly at times, but they don’t bust out their sweaters.
The beard is like a hand knit wool sweater for the face and neck. When winter approaches in Skyrim they just ease up on the trimming. But for those of us that aren’t built to ooze cascading waterfalls of full, thick, unbridled warmth, there’s the Elder Scrolls Online Nord Beard. Made of 100% acrylic, that channeling frost spell won’t have a chance to form those tedious chincicles.
Scientifically Accurate Ducktales
Real ducks are not nice to each other. Scientifically Accurate Duckberg would be closer to Mogadishu than the Magic Kingdom. Also, gold is not soft.
Holy Shiny Shoes Batman! Has the whole world gone batty?
You won’t need Robin in these kicks….show Gotham and the rest of us who’s boss in these comic crazed crystal creations.
These batman shoes are hand-painted and shielded in over 2000 Swarovski crystals that shine brighter than the bat signal itself.
Even the Joker is left speechless with the brilliance of these head-turning shoes.
Adorned in crystals these shoes are hand-painted and covered in crystals, they have a the Batman logo on the outside of each shoe with the word BATMAN up the side.
On the inside is the GOTHAM CITY SKYLINE and the words BIFF and KAPOW that is given one of a kind blingification.
The Heel is covered in black, gold and clear crystals with BAM! hand painted and glittered on the sole.
Nick and Siri play Dungeons and Dragons
Siri is the worst dungeon master.
