"Dead Snow" was a wonderfully fun Norwegian film with a simple premise: zombie Nazis. It is fantastic, the trailer is fantastic, and it is currently streaming on Netflix. So the fact that it is getting a sequel should really excite you.

Well, gross. I'll add this to my list of why I won't be signing up for the baby train.
Also, "baby train" sorta sounds like a bunch of dudes busting a train on you so you can up the chances of getting pregnant.

What is a "super selfie", you may ask? Why not let creator Gabriel Valenciano fill you in:
"There really is no specific definition to it. I guess it’s a ‘selfie’ that has nothing to do with taking a photo of yourself. Rather, a video of yourself disregarding (most important word) your self-image, letting loose and just tearing it up."After "Tune Squad" got pretty popular, Gabriel decided to up the ante. This time, his father joins him in this ridiculous burst of energy, all to the tune of "Separate Ways" by Journey.
Based on the Japanese novel "All You Need Is Kill" by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, this sci-fi story revolves around a soldier who dies in combat and keeps waking up in the same body in the past, but with the ability to learn and retain the knowledge from his previous life. While I was much more on board with the original title, I'll admit this trailer really blew me away.
