Emmerich claims himself a visionary, and one who has no time for 'superhero fare' inspired by his films. Fair to say, Emmerich's about to be dealt a nice serving of blowback based off the following incendiary remark he made about Marvel superhero movies...

“I’m a big believer in original ideas. I tell this to every kid who comes to me and says they want to be a filmmaker. I say, ‘Do what you want to do and don’t let yourself be talked into anything.’ When you look at my movies it’s always the regular Joe Schmo that’s the unlikely hero. A lot of Marvel movies, they show people in funny suits running around. I don’t like people in capes. I find it silly when someone dons a superhero suit and flies. I don’t understand it. I grew up in Germany, that’s probably why.”

The video description explains how much land was bought and a vague sense of what is planned for it: 

Burning Man Project has purchased the Fly Ranch property, 3,800 acres of land located twenty-one miles north of Gerlach in Washoe County, Nevada. The site opens the door to new possibilities, new cultural experiments, and year-round art and innovation projects on a scale never before envisioned. And like Black Rock City, Fly Ranch will be a collaborative endeavor requiring a vast array of skills, ideas, and contributions.

Mayte Lara graduated at the top of her class, as you can tell by her Tweet, but letting the world know that she was in the US illegally was probably not the smartest idea. Some people have voiced their support for Mayte, and say that she is a good example of a hardworking person who is working to better themselves, unlike the stereotypes of undocumented immigrants that people like Donald Trump have been spouting in the current election season. That didn't stop the fact that she got so much backlash on Twitter that she had to close her account. Some of the Tweets looked like this terrible Donald Trump meme:

Some people even reported her to the government.

Apparently, the Ukrainian Secret Service (SBU) have been watching this guy for months. Somehow they got surveillance video from inside his house as he loads up his van with a ridiculous amount of weapons and ammunition. He was allegedly planning on making an attack at the Euro 2016. Although he was clearly up to something, France maintains that they have not yet connected him to a terrorist group.

Rose McGowan, an American actress released the following statement regarding her general disapproval of the X-Men: Apocalypse poster:

‘There is a major problem when the men and women at 20th Century Fox think casual violence against women is the way to market a film.'

She went on to wrap up her interview with Hollywood Reporter, regarding the matter, with:

"I’ll close with a text my friend sent, a conversation with his daughter. It follows: ‘My daughter and I were just having a deep discussion on the brutality of that hideous X-Men poster yesterday. Her words: 'Dad, why is that monster man committing violence against a woman?' This from a 9-year-old. If she can see it, why can’t Fox?"

The poster, as you can see from above depicts the villain Apocalypse essentially choking the living sh*t out of Mystique. McGowan's not the only one to step forward to express some outrage. The internet reactions are already running amok, check 'em out below. Because if you're like me, you probably had no idea who the heck Rose McGowan was..






What do you guys make of all this?

Almost a week ago, Seven-year-old Yamato Tanooka was left on the side of the road near a "bear-infested" forest in Hokkaido, Japan. The search began after the missing boy dissapeared into the forest, thinking his parents had left him for good as punishment for throwing rocks at cars and visitors at a nearby park.  Miraculously, this little boy was found ALIVE and relatively unharmed after six nights alone in the forest.

Yamato managed to survive in the forest for so long after stumbling upon a hut used during training for the Japanese military. He did not have any food or heating but he did manage to keep warm by sleeping between two mattresses.  He also had access to clean water nearby.  For now, he's being kept for observation under a doctors orders but seems to be doing fine. This event has sparked debate over where normal parental punishment can cross the line into abuse with most people on social media condemning his parents for leaving him.
