Right now you can watch two different documentaries about the disaster of an event called Fyre Festival. Netflix has Fyre, and Hulu made Fyre Fraud, and both give an extensive, laughable, and tragic look inside the work of notorious hustler Billy MacFarland and his failed upscale island. But this wasn’t the first highly publicized disaster that unfolded somewhere meant to be an incredible getaway destination.
Jurassic Park was going to be an unforgettable experience where crowds could get a look at real dinosaurs in front of their eyes. However, it turned out to be unforgettable for a much different reason when the park’s first visitors ended up in a nightmare worse than anyone could have anticipated. The new documentary Jurassic Fraud shows us what went wrong. Read More »

The end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom teased the idea that dinosaurs roaming around in the world without restrictions would be a big part of Jurassic World 3. However, according to director and writer Colin Trevorrow, fans shouldn’t expect to see dinosaurs attacking cities and neighborhoods like Rise of the Planet of the Apes or some kind of Godzilla movie.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Jurassic World 3 won’t take dinosaurs into cities and suburbs. After all, we already got that in The Lost World: Jurassic Park when a tyrannosaurus rex was let loose in San Diego, and it really tainted the sequel. So if we’re not going to see a big dinosaur monster movie in Jurassic World 3, then what can we expect? Read More »
The Library of Congress has announced its 25 new inductees to the National Film Registry, the archive that protects and preserves “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films” to American film history. As of 2018, there are 727 films in the registry — a surprisingly small amount considering cinema’s rich and long history.
This year’s annual selection of inductees has an even mixture of blockbusters, documentaries, silent movies, animation and independent films that span 107 years, from 1898 to 2005. These films include Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain, and more.

Just in case Jurassic Park and the two sequels that followed weren’t enough of a prequel to set the stage for Jurassic World, the folks at Universal and NBC created a Jurassic World prequel in the form of a LEGO animated special airing on TV the week after Thanksgiving.
LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit is an animated special that will recount the events that led up to Jurassic World, including giving us some background on the tension between Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), though neither of the stars are voicing their characters. It all sounds…strange. Anyway, check out the LEGO Jurassic World special trailer below. Read More »
