jurassic world 3 info

Last week, I had the opportunity to talk to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona about the making of his latest film. We talk about why he decided to direct Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom after turning down the first film, his very collaborative relationship with co-writer/producer Colin Trevorrow, the creation of one of my favorite action sequences from the film, and the decision to make this a story about saving the dinosaurs.

You can read the full interview below. There are no real spoilers in the discussion (the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom one shot action sequence we talk about is in the trailers), so feel free to dive in.

Now Scream This: Science Gone Wrong!

Science Experiment Horror Movies Streaming

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

Matt: If anything can be learned from this week’s “Now Scream This,” I’m left with two lessons. One: humanity needs to accept its universal role and stop tampering with unknown forces. Two: never let Chris pick all his movies first because there will be nothing left. Sci-fi horror has always been less represented on streaming platforms (which we found out already), and sticking with our Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom tie-in, history hath repeated itself. No bother. I’m back at it, fudging rules and making it all work. Or, like, salvaging a raging dumpster fire. Both descriptions fit.

Chris: When will man learn to never tamper in god’s domain? Beats me! Until then, we’ll have to make do with movies focused on science gone terribly wrong. In honor of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Matt and I have scoured the net to bring back these perversions of science – films that follow the Jurassic tradition of scientific hubris gone wild. As a side note: I really wanted to put David Cronenberg’s The Fly on here, but The Fly isn’t streaming. At all. What hellscape is this?

sicario day of the soldado early buzz

The announcement of a Sicario sequel was met with some raised eyebrows. How do you follow up Denis Villeneuve‘s powerful, gripping drama about the escalating war on drugs – and do so without the return of Villeneuve, cinematographer Roger Deakins, or star Emily Blunt? Early marketing for Sicario: Day of the Soldado was a bit confused as well, with some trailers suggesting that it was a morally gray prestige thriller in the vein of the first film while others showcased a bombastic action movie.

Fans were understandably skeptical about the sequel directed by Stefano Sollima, but the Sicario Day of the Soldado early buzz proves that their worries were unfounded. Here are what critics have to say about the new movie.

Incredibles 2 Spoiler Review

The Incredibles arrived on the scene in 2004 when superheroes were taking off at the box office, but hadn’t ventured into the behemoth of success that would come with the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just four years later. Now that 14 years have passed since the original, the superhero game is well-tread and seasoned territory. But leave it to the geniuses at Pixar Animation to craft a superhero sequel that is positively superb simply because it isn’t your average superhero movie.

What made The Incredibles stand out in the first place was the fact that it was about family first. It just so happens the Parr family were special because every one of them had super powers (except Jack-Jack at the time). Unfortunately, Bob (aka Mr. Incredible) and Helen (aka Elastigirl) decided to start a family after superheroes were declared illegal, forcing their kids Dash and Violet to hide their super powers. Unlike the rest of the world around them, this family can’t do the things that make them special.

Incredibles 2 partially deals with this same issue as the family faces the prospect of their heroic actions still being deemed not only illegal, but also unwanted by the general public, thanks to the perception presented by politicians ensuring that people only see the destruction they’ve caused and not the good they’ve done. However, all that is an excuse to put pressure on The Incredibles as a family, to change up the dynamic so that each of the characters can grow in their own way. And it’s accompanied by some amazingly well-crafted and thrilling action adventure. Read More »

Incredibles 2 Jack-Jack Powers

Incredibles 2 is in theaters now, and that means fans have gotten a glimpse at every single one of the new powers displayed by Parr family’s youngest superhero, Jack-Jack.

Our first hint of Jack-Jack having superpowers came at the end of The Incredibles when a whole array of special abilities came flying out of the baby when he was in the midst of being kidnapped by Syndrome. And we found out about even more of them in the animated short Jack-Jack Attack that was released with the home video version of The Incredibles. But we find out about some fascinating new powers Jack-Jack has in Incredibles 2, and now there are so many that we thought it might help to have a handy list to keep track of them all. But beware of spoilers for Incredibles 2 as we list off all of the Jack-Jack superpowers we know about. Read More »
