KIDS FIRST!

Jurassic World is appropriate for ages 12 to 18. It is surprisingly gory and scary, so parents should accompany younger kids. The film may not be appropriate for all kids under 13. I give the film 4 out of 5 stars.

As Horner explained in his 2009 book How to Build a Dinosaur: Extinction Doesn't Have to be Forever (and in his TED talk on de-extinction), you can turn on dormant genes to get them to build body parts, including a dino-like tail, snout and even teeth.

Mad Max: Fury Road Rekindles Sensational Cinema, Yet Makes Me Long for Tank Girl

Gregory Weinkauf

There's a terrific comic-book sensibility to this film, which is high praise for the work of a seventy-year-old man. In contrast to that other George, I feel like this movie -- with its blood, sweat and gears -- is the proper spiritual sequel to the original Star Wars.

Today marks the 73rd anniversary of The Battle of Los Angeles, also known as The Great LA Air Raid, one of the most mysterious incidents of World War II -- and one of the most colorful tales in all of UFO lore. It's also a tale we couldn't resist turning into a movie.

As a Connecticut Yankee born and bred -- or perhaps I should say born and white-bread, which is how most people think of Connecticut Yankees -- I have always loved history, not just because I am old enough to be historical myself, but because I could never do algebra.
