There are few things on this planet more obnoxious than young love. By nature, teenagers are pretty unbearable, but when their hormones start going, they become even worse. “It’s true love!” they yell, as they obliterate f...

Let It Go will be at the Oscars

So I wasn't the only person who thought Frozen got robbed at the Golden Globes, right? Look, U2 is fine, I like a couple of their songs, but they have to be the least interesting popular band out there. Even Nickelback is interestingly bad,...

Mike's Top 5 Action Sequences of 2013

Florida children exposed to sex instead of Frozen

About Mike Cosimanoone of us since 11:28 AM on 11.11.2013

Mike Cosimano lives in East Aurora, New York, but goes to school all the way on the other side of the country. What a great idea. Hot Fuzz is his favorite movie ever made, but he claims The Iron Giant is the objectively best film of all time. He's also a couple Latin phrases away from memorizing President Bartlet's speech from Two Cathedrals. When he's not Flixist-ing, you can find him riding the video game rails at videogamechoochoo.com
