A 3-foot-long mammoth tusk hidden on the ocean floor could offer clues about the ancient creatures

Members of the science team at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute observe the mammoth tusk.Darrin Schultz © 2021 MBARI Scientists discovered a 3-foot-long mammoth tusk roughly 10,000 feet below the ocean's surface. The deep sea is ideal for preserving remains, though mammoth fossils rarely wind up there. The tusk belongs to a young female mammoth. Scientists are using it for clues about how she lived. To the untrained eye, it may have looked like a giant wood log. In reality, sc...

Why The Jurassic World Series Can't Capture The Spielbergian Magic Of Jurassic Park

A prologue for the upcoming "Jurassic Park Dominion" arrived this week, and it wasn't half-bad. The first part of the prologue takes us back 65 million years to when dinosaurs ruled the earth, giving us a human-free world where dinos were large and in charge. It then cuts to the current timeline in the "Jurassic World" series where we see a T.rex terrorize a drive-in movie theater. All of this is fine, and I was particularly keen on the drive-in sequence, which feels genuinely Spielbergian. Unti...

Boogie Nights Ending Explained: Hanging In And Hanging Out

With the release of Paul Thomas Anderson's new film "Licorice Pizza" fast approaching, a reexamination of his similarly '70s-set breakout "Boogie Nights" feels appropriate. Though packed with unyielding moments of exhilaration and intrigue throughout its 155 minute runtime, the film's ending drives home sorrowful sentiments on the collapse of the "Golden Age" of filmmaking — both pornographic and commercial — as well as containing the jaw-dropping reveal of Dirk Diggler's (Mark Wahlberg) impress...

Tales From The Box Office: How Hocus Pocus Went From Flop To Halloween Cult Classic

(Welcome to Tales from the Box Office, our column that examines box office miracles, disasters, and everything in between, as well as what we can learn from them.)Nearly two decades removed from its initial theatrical release in the summer (yes, summer) of 1993, "Hocus Pocus" has become a bona fide Halloween season classic and an absolute staple for many who watched it while growing up. It might be easy to forget, given that history has been quite kind to the family-friendly spooky season featur...

The 15 Best Spielberg Protagonists Ranked

Over past 50 years, Steven Spielberg has been one of the prolific and successful directors in Hollywood, with more hits under his belt than almost any other filmmaker. His work, whether historical drama or action adventure, is deeply human, and one of his most unique qualities is how easily he makes audiences fell in love with the universes that he creates. In order to do this, Spielberg needs both characters that spark the imagination, and actors with the charisma and talent to breathe life int...

Top Five Movies: Jonathan Edward Durham

  Top Five Movies   Movies are as imperfect as an art form gets, which is why they're absolute magic when they're done right…and utter disasters when they're not.   To trust the vision of one person to somewhere between a dozen and a few hundred craftspeople, tradeworkers, and artists is complete madness…but sometimes what's left at the end of that journey is eminently more powerful than the idea that set the fuse burning, and those instances of big-screen brilliance are what ke...

Docuseries About George Lucas And ILM Coming From Director Lawrence Kasdan

Lawrence Kasdan and George Lucas go back a long way. Kasdan made his auspicious screenwriting debut with "The Empire Strikes Back," which we've scientifically proven to be the best "Star Wars" movie. He then went on to write "Raiders of the Lost Ark," write and direct "Body Heat," and co-write "Return of the Jedi." And that was just the beginning of his illustrious film career. Kasdan and Lucas have known each other for over 40 years, and now comes word that he'll be directing a documentary seri...

How badly do you want your experience at a theme park to be supplemented by a robotic character who appears to be flesh-and-blood?

Eric Vespe’s Favorite Movies of All Time

Ranking films is always, always, always a fool’s errand. The whole reason we like cinema in the first place is because we go into each and every film with our own unique baggage. Strike that, we go into each and every viewing of a film with that baggage. So, a movie you saw in your 20s might have bounced off of you, but when you watch it again a decade later you’re going in with 10 more years of life experience and it can hit you in a radically different way. A prime example of this phenomenon ...
