Kids these days.
D.J., cue up that cringe-worthy Vitamin C song because it's graduation time again! Right now hundreds of thousands of 22-year-olds are currently being degreed up and sent off into the real world ... job market issues and excessive student loan interest rates notwithstanding, of course.
Thing is, class, this isn't your grandpa's Bachelor of Arts program anymore. Nowadays even the most esteemed colleges are catering their coursework offerings — in title, if nothing else — to pique the interest of their student pools. Get More »
Looks like T-Rex'll be keeping that slight lead in the kill count race against Velociraptor for a little longer ... and possibly forever.
Universal has pulled an "Ian, FREEZE" on its plans to begin production on "Jurassic Park 4" this summer, thereby opening up its prime release date spot for the "21 Jump Street" sequel to hop into. Get More »
This week: Director J.A. Bayona's gut-wrenching "The Impossible" starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated role tells the true story of one family's struggle for survival after the 2004 tsunami that devastated Thailand and much of the surrounding region.
Also new this week is the troubled "Gangster Squad" with Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling; Gus Van Sant's "Promised Land" with Matt Damon and John Krasinski; and the Blu-ray 3D debut of the original "Jurassic Park." Get More »
If you're planning to see "Jurassic Park 3D" any time soon, your experience might just be a touch tainted by this latest bit of disturbing information. Fair warning.
You know all those dino noises — sometimes endearing, more often terrifying — in the 1993 original version? Yeah, so it turns out several of those were just sexy time recordings of various animals. Get More »
YouTube channel The Picture Show has delivered its premiere episode of a series called "Remix the Movies" in which, ostensibly, classic films are "remixed" and given new life via different dialogue. The first episode asks us what really happened when Steven Spielberg worked with kids on the set of "Jurassic Park."
You know what? Maybe one of the kids didn't know his parents' first names. And maybe the other one did refer to God as "Chocolate Cake" in her prayers. Life was very different in back in 1993.
We don't know Steven Spielberg personally, but our guess is that there wasn't much room for improv on the set of the dinosaur-themed classic. But sometimes comedy asks the great questions, like whether Spielberg would openly value "the magic of a child" before calling himself "so f**king talented." We understand the guy's ego, of course, but the least he could have done was watched the swear words in front of the kids, right?
Survey: Have you ever been eaten by a dinosaur? Yeah, neither have I. Good for us.
From watching each of the three "Jurassic Park" movies, though — "Jurassic Park" (1993), "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" (1997) and "Jurassic Park III" (2001) — it sure looks like getting eaten by a dinosaur hurts pretty bad, doesn't it? Let's just agree that there are better ways to go than being eaten by a dinosaur. Glad we got that out of the way. Get More »
Sheesh, Raptors — do you have anyone you can talk to about your little self-control problem?
The dinosaurs in the "Jurassic Park" movies sure do kill a lot of people (and sometimes dogs and toilets). But which dinos had the highest levels of prehistoric hunger/bloodlust? Our infographic reveals which of the beasties proved Dr. Ian Malcolm's Chaos Theory of "Nature will find a way" the most. And by "will find a way" we mean "will destroy you."

"Jurassic Park 3D" hits theaters this weekend.
Beware, good sir: Nature will find a way.
Montana State University paleontologist Jack Horner served as a consultant on "Jurassic Park," but apparently all of the film's cautionary elements -- like the fact that what you bring back to life could kill you -- went over his head, as he's set to create his own modern dinosaur hybrid.
Somewhat luckily, Horner isn't looking to make a T-Rex (although apparently not for lack of trying) but a ... chicken.
A dino-chicken, anyway. Get More »
Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »
Dinosaurs are about to get a lot more indie-quirky.
Colin Trevorrow is the latest director to prove that one can score a big studio franchise gig if one makes a cute romantic comedy as the "Safety Not Guaranteed" director has signed on to direct "Jurassic Park IV," according to Deadline.
Trevorrow joining the production makes for the latest bit of development on a project that was all thought extinct until earlier this year when Universal announced that it had locked a June 2014 release date for the film. Steven Spielberg will be producing "Jurassic Park IV" with Frank Marshall, with Kathleen Kennedy not involved due to her commitments to Disney's "Star Wars" resurrection. Get More »
