Every boy dreams of being a superhero. Heck, I seriously wanted to be one when I was younger. Together with my cousin, we came up with elaborate plans of creating masks and costumes so we can defend other kids from school bullies, in between our classes. We’d wear our costumes under our school clothes or keep them in our bags.

Fortunately, those plans never materialized. Crime-fighting is only fun when seen in a cartoon or a movie. I’m sure things wouldn’t end well for both me and my cousin if we pursued that in real life.

Daniel Hashimoto wanted to make his kids superheroes, too but he did it in a much more interesting and entertaining way.

You see the guy works as an animator for Dreamworks and he used his skills to feature his kids in awesome short films filled with mind-blowing special effects using Adobe After Effects “plus a few third party plugins,” according to him.

The videos star James, his now 6-year-old son, with younger sister Sophia also joining the fun.

Most of the videos star James but the most recent ones also feature Sophia, the “newest member of the family.” The videos have are uploaded on YouTube channel Action Movie Kid and, since joining the site in February 2014, they currently have almost a million subscribers.

I’ve been a fan of their channel for over a year now so I’ve seen most of their videos. James has starred in different skits where he wrecked havoc at a toy store using a lightsaber, jumped over lava on their living room, used Batman’s grappling hook, and much, much more.

Weddings have become so much interesting now, thanks to the antics of guests, the bridal party, or even the couple themselves. As far as the groom and his groomsmen go, this raises the bar really high.

The 25-year old Lee, who is a personal trainer and former commando, started his wedding day with bride Elsa by giving the lady a glorious sight to behold - he and his 8 groomsmen clad in nothing but skimpy warrior skirts, capes, and gladiator sandals. The ab-tastic display is a nod to the hot Spartan warriors of the film 300.

Plainly put, having a broken smartphone screen sucks. It takes away from the beauty of your device and, in a way, makes you look like an irresponsible idiot. People would often come up to you and ask “Did your girlfriend throw it because you aren’t returning her calls?” or something like “Did you sit on it while you’re watching TV?”

Worse than that, it can get annoying to look at if you still couldn’t replace it a new handset. Perhaps you can’t afford a new one yet? Or you’re too sentimental?

Well fortunately, you can do something to make your phone look cool again. The “fixes” you will see below can be perfectly helpful for your cracked screen problems.
