As the name of our website would imply, we like to write about a lot of things that aren’t exactly based in reality. It’s not uncommon to find articles or lists featuring Samus Aran, vampires, Inglorious Basterds, the Battleship movie, movie suicides, or movie psychopaths, just to give a few examples. If you come here often, you get the idea of the type of stuff we like.
The old expression is that truth is often stranger than fiction, and I suppose that could apply to the real and “unreal,” too. I don’t know about you, but watching a great white shark burst through the surface of the ocean with a seal in its jaws is more awe-inspiring to me than almost all of the video games I’ve ever played. The savage yet beautiful images of nature in its rawest form are without a doubt sites to behold. Case in point: Planet Earth. After the jump, enjoy 10 of the most breathtaking video clips from Planet Earth.

In the interest of full disclosure, I was a zoology major so I tend to really dig stuff like this. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.
