First Man Gives Humankind’s Greatest Adventure a Personal Touch

For a movie about going to the moon, First Man sure is grounded. That’s a good thing though, mostly, as the film provides a layered and at times painful look at what that legendary trip cost not just America but also astronaut Neil Armstrong. However, First Man is not a hugely patriotic roller coaster like Apollo 13. Director Damien Chazelle has taken one of humankind’s greatest adventures and turned it into an intimate character portrait. It’s engaging and emotional, but just the slightest bit underwhelming.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls Has Some Enchanting Moments But Is Mostly Forgettable

Sitting down to watch The House with a Clock in Its Walls, you know exactly the movie you want to see.

After that wild twist at the end of Split, we’ve been waiting for ages to see what M. Night Shyamalan could do when it came to smashing together James McAvoy, Samuel L.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Was Born Out of Several Moral and Ethical Dilemmas

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom centres on questions of animal rights, genetic power, war mongering, responsibility, and more. So, if you’re in the universe of Jurassic Park and want to talk about things like that, really there’s only one person you call: Dr. Ian Malcolm, played by Jeff Goldblum. And that’s exactly what co-writer and producer Colin Trevorrow did. Read More >>

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 >>

Universal’s plans for a shared universe of monster movies is all but dead after the creative team tapped to build out the franchise left the project.

Universal Adds Phantom of the Opera and Hunchback of Notre Dame to Its Monsterverse, Which Is Very Dumb

Universal is desperate to create a franchise out of the classic “monsters” that ruled the studio from the 1920s to 1960. It’s calling this thing “Dark Universe” and it’s all kicking off with that ridiculous Tom Cruise-starring Mummy. And now we get word about more monster movies being planned and they make no sense.

Why Winning the Dancing Baby Lawsuit is a Big Deal for the Internet

In 2007, a home video of a baby dancing to Prince’s 1984 masterpiece Let’s Go Crazy was uploaded onto YouTube. Eight years and a few dozen lawyers later, a federal appeals court in the US has ruled that uploading the video was an OK thing to do — a judgement that is of surprising importance to the rest of the internet.
