8 Action Stars Over Sixty We Want For 'Expendables 4'

8/15/2014 10:00am EDT
Expendables 3

It is our firm belief that "The Expendables" should continue for at least seven more sequels, enough that Stallo...

Worst of the Worst: Hulk Hogan's "Hulk Rules"

And invariably, there is almost always something that's even worse.

People will always also argue that things they don't like are bad, but that's just their opinion, and that is only one way of looking at it, because realistically not everyone will love everything, it's how it works. However, there are truly some songs that are so bad that they can ...
