Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Lacks the Majesty the Franchise Is Known for

One of the things that makes the Jurassic Park franchise so memorable is John Williams’ score. The majestic music is one of the legendary composer’s most recognisable compositions. That score is teased, but never truly unleashed, in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which is also the perfect analogy for the movie as a whole. Everything feels held back and small. There’s never a moment worthy of that iconic music. Read More >>

Mammalian Ancestors Went Airborne Earlier Than We Thought

The origin of flight remains a perplexing topic in the scientific community, as tends to be the case with any origin story. Flight probably evolved multiple times in different groups. Insects probably started flying over 300 million years ago, and pterosaurs, large flying reptiles, evolved 230 million years ago.
