Loki in Avengers Age of Ultron: now you see him, now you don’t

You'll have to wait until the DVD/Blu-ray release to see Loki in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Scenes were filmed, we've found out this week, but in the end, they had to be cut. According to director Joss Whedon, "we did shoot something, but it didn't play." Sometimes you just have too many characters in a movie, apparently. Too many plots and too many pieces of action. Too much plot, and too much madness. Peter Jackson, meanwhile, was unavailable for comment on the situation.

Perhaps we can blame Sharknado for the spike in ridiculous movies that don't go to too much effort hide their subpar production quality and overt tongue-in-cheek storylines. There's a dedicated fan base for such movies, and if you count yourself among them then you'll be glad to know there's yet another film of that sorts in the works: it's called Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs, and it is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. The film will be starring, among other, Eric Roberts.

Milk Video Review – Samsung’s YouTube

Milk Video Review – Samsung’s YouTube

While it might seem strange to call Milk Video "Samsung's YouTube" since it contains actual YouTube content, know this: it's what this software feels like that counts. Over the past few weeks I've been using Samsung's Milk Video on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 regularly. Once I received a Samsung Galaxy S6 for review over on Android Community, I began using Milk Video there as well. Of this I'm sure: once you get past the idea that you're no longer in your video comfort zone, Samsung's work with Milk Video shines.

They're all rather large comic book fans, as it were.
