With a plot centered around hungry dinosaurs on the loose due to a disabled security system, and the likable lead characters–including two young children– in mortal danger, the original Jurassic Park promised to be a hit. But the 1993 film, directed by Steven Spielberg, had more than a strong plot going for it… as well as a few challenges.  In this T-Rex-sized extended episode, Ashley and Candy take a deep dive into the movie that started the billion-dollar Jurassic Park franchise. What was the real-life science that inspired the story? How did Spielberg juggle directing both Jurassic Park and another award-winning film at roughly the same time? How did the special effects team break ground with their use of both CGI and animatronics to create the film's dinosaur visuals? Why exactly does Ian Malcolm have an open shirt when it's clearly his leg that is injured?  Listen in as we discuss these questions and so much more!

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Monday, June 20th, 2022. Here’s what you may have missed, over the weekend! On Saturday, game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Colorado Avalanche, and the Tampa Bay Lightning took place. The Avalanche took game 1, so Tampa Bay really wanted to even up the series as it shifts back to Florida today… and well… here’s how it went. If you’re a Tampa Bay fan, cover your ears! Cup Final, Gm2: Lightning @ Avalanche 6/18 | NHL Playoffs 2022 Play 0:48-1:05 Play 2:11-2:27 Play 3:40-3:55 Play 5:15-5:27 Play 6:25-6:35 Play 7:43-7:55 Play 8:15-8:30 https://www.outkick.com/nichushkin-stays-hot-avalanche-take-commanding-2-0-series-lead-over-lightning-in-stanley-cup-final/ What you just heard was the absolute demolition of the Tampa Bay Lightning at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche. The Tampa Bay Lightning came into Game 2 of the 2022 Stanley Cup Final with a plan. But like Mike Tyson once said, everybody’s got a plan until they get punched in the face. Or in this case, an avalanche of seismic proportions. Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said the key to evening up the series at two was weathering the storm in the first 10 minutes from the Colorado Avalanche. And yet, after those 10 crucial minutes of play inside Ball Arena, Colorado held a 2-0 advantage — just as they did in Game 1. The Avalanche’s onslaught started early and never let up, as Colorado defeated Tampa Bay, 7-0, to take an all-important 2-0 series lead. Why’s that so important, you ask? Teams leading 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Final are 47-5 all-time. The touchdown + extra point loss is Tampa Bay’s worst in its playoff history, topping the 5-0 defeat against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Round 1 this year and the 6-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers back in 1996, the franchise’s first ever playoff appearance. The Avalanche have now scored 11 goals through two games in the series and are 14-2 overall during the playoffs. The seven-goal margin is the largest in a Stanley Cup Final game since 1991, when the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Minnesota North Stars, 8-0, in Game 6 of the series. The series will now shift back to Tampa Bay for Games 3 and 4, with the Lightning looking for any sort of jolt from the Amalie Arena crowd. Puck drop for Game 3 is scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN. Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more. Early bird tickets are available now, but will be gone before you know it! Sign up now at flfnetwork.com/knoxville2022 https://www.politico.com/news/2022/06/19/world-swimming-transgender-athletes-00040722 Speaking of lies & Propaganda… let’s talk about transgender athletes! World swimming bans transgender athletes from women’s events World swimming’s governing body has effectively banned transgender women from competing in women’s events, starting Monday. FINA members widely adopted a new “gender inclusion policy” on Sunday that only permits swimmers who transitioned before age 12 to compete in women’s events. The organization also proposed an “open competition category.” “This is not saying that people are encouraged to transition by the age of 12. It’s what the scientists are saying, that if you transition after the start of puberty, you have an advantage, which is unfair,” James Pearce, who is the spokesperson for FINA president Husain Al-Musallam, told The Associated Press. “They’re not saying everyone should transition by age 11, that’s ridiculous. You can’t transition by that age in most countries and hopefully you wouldn’t be encouraged to. Basically, what they’re saying is that it is not feasible for people who have transitioned to compete without having an advantage.” Pearce confirmed there are currently no transgender women competing in elite levels of swimming. The World Professional Association for Transgender Health just lowered its recommended minimum age for starting gender transition hormone treatment to 14 and some surgeries to 15 or 17. FINA’s new 24-page policy also includes proposals for a new “open competition” category. The organization said it was setting up “a new working group that will spend the next six months looking at the most effective ways to set up this new category.” Pearce told the AP that the open competition would most likely mean more events, but those details still need to be worked out. The members voted 71.5% in favor at the organization’s extraordinary general congress after hearing presentations from three specialist groups — an athlete group, a science and medicine group and a legal and human rights group — that had been working together to form the policy following recommendations given by the International Olympic Committee last November. The IOC urged shifting the focus from individual testosterone levels and calling for evidence to prove when a performance advantage existed. FINA said it recognizes “that some individuals and groups may be uncomfortable with the use of medical and scientific terminology related to sex and sex-linked traits (but) some use of sensitive terminology is needed to be precise about the sex characteristics that justify separate competition categories.” In March, Lia Thomas a man, made history in the United States as the first man to win woman’s NCAA swimming championship, the 500-yard freestyle. The coward, Thomas said last month on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that he was aiming to become an Olympic swimmer. He also disputed those who say he has an unfair biological edge that ruins the integrity of women’s athletics, saying “trans women are not a threat to women’s sports.” The University of Pennsylvania didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from Thomas. Other sports have also been examining their rules around transgender athletes. On Thursday, cycling’s governing body updated its eligibility rules for transgender athletes with stricter limits that will force riders to wait longer before they can compete. The International Cycling Union (UCI) increased the transition period on low testosterone to two years, and lowered the maximum accepted level of testosterone. The previous transition period was 12 months but the UCI said recent scientific studies show that “the awaited adaptations in muscle mass and muscle strength/power” among athletes who have made a transition from male to female takes at least two years. From sports, let’s go to entertainment, to infinity and beyond!!! https://variety.com/2022/film/box-office/box-office-lightyear-disappoints-1235298248/ Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’ Underwhelms With $51 Million Debut as ‘Jurassic World’ Stays No. 1 To infinity and beyond? Not exactly… “Lightyear,” a spinoff story set in Pixar’s “Toy Story” universe, fell short of that boundless milestone in its box office debut, collecting a lackluster $51 million from 4,255 North American theaters. Family audiences, the movie’s prime demographic, haven’t returned to theaters in full force since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even so, those ticket sales are disappointing for a brand as recognizable as Pixar, the home of “The Incredibles,” “Finding Nemo” and “Up.” It’s particularly problematic given that “Lightyear” cost $200 million to produce and tens of millions more to market. Heading into the weekend, the Disney film was expected to generate at least $70 million. But its ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth “Jurassic World Dominion” and Paramount’s high-flying “Top Gun: Maverick,” as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear, one that had only a tenuous connection to the four films in the popular kid-friendly franchise. With its wobbly liftoff, “Lightyear” landed in second place, becoming one of the rare Pixar films to not take the top spot at the domestic box office. Internationally, “Lightyear” earned $34.6 million from 43 markets, taking its global total to $85.6 million. The movie was banned in smaller foreign markets, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, because it depicts a same-sex kiss. Notably, “Lightyear” is the first Pixar movie to play on the big screen in more than two years — since “Onward” in March 2020. During the pandemic, three of the animation studio’s titles — “Soul,” “Luca” and “Turning Red” — skipped theaters to land directly on Disney+, leaving some box office analyst to question if consumers have been trained to watch Pixar movies at home. Other industry experts question if Disney is relying too heavily on brand recognition and not enough on execution. It’s not that people disliked the movie, which landed an “A-” CinemaScore and 77% on Rotten Tomatoes. But Disney certainly hoped that more ticket buyers would feel compelled to see “Lightyear” in theaters over the weekend. Believe me, I would have loved to see this movie. I mean, Toy Story was a part of my child-hood growing up, so it really pained me to see the headlines that they were going to force a gay kiss into the movie… based on that, I, and many of the people I’ve spoken with, refused to see the movie, as I’m sure all of our audience would agree. Even with a colossal 60% decline, “Jurassic World Dominion” managed to capture the box office crown again in a surprise upset. Universal’s prehistoric sequel generated $58.6 million from 4,697 cinemas in its second weekend of release, bringing its domestic total to $259 million. In third place, “Top Gun: Maverick” keeps flying high with a mammoth $44 million from 4,035 venues in North America, marking a scant 15% drop from last weekend. You know what those two shows have in common? They just tried to entertain the audience… not educate, or force satanic themes upon us.

Finally, let’s end today’s news brief, with a stroll down on this day in history! Jaws Theme Song - Play 1:07-1:18 Iconic! Anything directed by the great John Williams is just amazing… On June 20th, 1975, Jaws, a film directed by Steven Spielberg that made countless viewers afraid to go into the water, opens in theaters. The story of a great white shark that terrorizes a New England resort town became an instant blockbuster and the highest-grossing film in movie history until it was bested by 1977’s Star Wars. Jaws was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Picture category and took home three Oscars, for Best Film Editing, Best Original Score and Best Sound. The film, a breakthrough for director Spielberg, then 27 years old, spawned several sequels. The film starred Roy Scheider as principled police chief Martin Brody, Richard Dreyfuss as a marine biologist named Matt Hooper and Robert Shaw as a grizzled fisherman called Quint. It was set in the fictional beach town of Amity, and based on a best-selling novel, released in 1973, by Peter Benchley. Subsequent water-themed Benchley bestsellers also made it to the big screen, including The Deep (1977). With a budget of $12 million, Jaws was produced by the team of Richard Zanuck and David Brown, whose later credits include The Verdict (1982), Cocoon (1985) and Driving Miss Daisy (1989). Filming, which took place on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, was plagued by delays and technical difficulties, including malfunctioning mechanical sharks. Jaws put now-famed director Steven Spielberg on the Hollywood map. Spielberg, largely self-taught in filmmaking, made his major feature-length directorial debut with The Sugarland Express in 1974. The film was critically well-received but a box-office flop. Following the success of Jaws, Spielberg went on to become one of the most influential, iconic directors in the film world, with such epics as Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), ET: the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Jurassic Park (1993), Schindler’s List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). E.T., Jaws and Jurassic Park rank among the highest-grossing movies of all time. This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief.

Finally, let’s end today’s news brief, with a stroll down on this day in history! Jaws Theme Song - Play 1:07-1:18 Iconic! Anything directed by the great John Williams is just amazing… On June 20th, 1975, Jaws, a film directed by Steven Spielberg that made countless viewers afraid to go into the water, opens in theaters. The story of a great white shark that terrorizes a New England resort town became an instant blockbuster and the highest-grossing film in movie history until it was bested by 1977’s Star Wars. Jaws was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Picture category and took home three Oscars, for Best Film Editing, Best Original Score and Best Sound. The film, a breakthrough for director Spielberg, then 27 years old, spawned several sequels. The film starred Roy Scheider as principled police chief Martin Brody, Richard Dreyfuss as a marine biologist named Matt Hooper and Robert Shaw as a grizzled fisherman called Quint. It was set in the fictional beach town of Amity, and based on a best-selling novel, released in 1973, by Peter Benchley. Subsequent water-themed Benchley bestsellers also made it to the big screen, including The Deep (1977). With a budget of $12 million, Jaws was produced by the team of Richard Zanuck and David Brown, whose later credits include The Verdict (1982), Cocoon (1985) and Driving Miss Daisy (1989). Filming, which took place on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, was plagued by delays and technical difficulties, including malfunctioning mechanical sharks. Jaws put now-famed director Steven Spielberg on the Hollywood map. Spielberg, largely self-taught in filmmaking, made his major feature-length directorial debut with The Sugarland Express in 1974. The film was critically well-received but a box-office flop. Following the success of Jaws, Spielberg went on to become one of the most influential, iconic directors in the film world, with such epics as Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), ET: the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Jurassic Park (1993), Schindler’s List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). E.T., Jaws and Jurassic Park rank among the highest-grossing movies of all time. This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief.

En 1993, Steven Spielberg avait un rêve : celui d'émerveiller petits et grands en faisant revenir d'entre les morts les créatures les plus incroyables que la Terre ait porté, marquant à jamais notre petit coeur d'enfant. 30 ans plus tard, Hollywood eut aussi un rêve, pourri malheureusement, en ressortant de l'ambre LE FILM de toute une génération pour le franchiser, le piétiner et l'enterrer à jamais aux côtés des blockbusters merdiques insipides qui évoluent sur nos écrans depuis 10 ans...

Cela dit c'est une bonne occasion pour revenir sur ce qu'est la définition d'un blockbuster familial en 2022 à l'ère du tout Marvel et autopsier ce cinéma popcorn en détresse qui tire fort sur les mamelles de la nostalgie pour vendre son fromage insipide.

Life Through the Big Screen
Ready Player One: Into the Metaverse (ft. Patrick Miller)

Life Through the Big Screen

On this episode I'm joined by a jack of all trades, Patrick Miller. A pastor by vocation, but also the co-host of the podcasts Truth Over Tribe and Ten Minute Bible Talks, amongst other things. He's also the co-author of an upcoming book called Truth Over Tribe: Pledging Allegiance to the Lamb, Not the Donkey or the Elephant. I talk to Patrick about what prompted him and his co-host Keith Simon to start Truth Over Tribe, and he shares the background there. The two of them really wanted to know if we could talk about our most pressing cultural issues without becoming polarized. Jumping into the movie, which is directed by Steven Spielberg, we discuss whether he's lost his magic touch. Patrick draws some very tight parallels between RPO and his childhood favorites, Jurassic Park and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (both Spielberg films). And the parallels are much tighter than just mere references throughout RPO. We linger for a bit of time on the ending of the movie where the Oasis is closed down on Tuesdays and Thursdays (the Chick-fil-a of the digital world as Patrick puts it). We talk about how fascinating it is that a mainstream Hollywood movie would incorporate the importance of a Sabbath-like living in the real world and cultivating real relationships outside of what consumes our time and minds the most. Patrick discusses how he's not so much attracted to the idea of the alleged upcoming metaverse, but he's instead a pragmatist, and really just wants to see Christians ready for it when it comes. As a result of us not being ready by the phenomenon of social media and iPhones, we're now having to battle and confront troll farms who claim to be speaking on behalf of Christians, but we still have no idea how to put up a fight. In short, Patrick is strongly suggesting we put Christian programmers in place now to start preparing for the inevitable metaverse. We then dive into the present day and talk about those troll farms that are spreading misinformation with the sole purpose of dividing us. Here's the link for How to Prevent Yourself From Misinformation and Disinformation, an article Patrick wrote for The Gospel Coalition. In the movie the players are all searching for three Easter eggs that the creator Halliday has dispersed all around the Oasis. I ask Patrick what he thinks the real-life Easter eggs are that we're all chasing after today. His answer hits close to home for all of us as we are conditioned to want what our parents had - and is that because we really want it, or because that's just what we've known? Why do we get caught up in these rat races? And the races that take place on the mimetic machine of social media? Anger and sex, he goes on, are the two things that keep people so fiercely engaged on social media platforms. And just like we want to buy a home because our parents bought a home - we get outraged because we see people like Ben Shapiro and Rachel Maddow get outraged, so it justifies our actions and words that may otherwise have been out of character for us. He concludes by saying that what we want does't matter, it's the model we're after.  Which is why it's so important to train our hearts to desire what Jesus desires. Speaking of Jesus, we talk about this strange correlation of close proximity to celebrities who now, with Instagram, can present themselves as "normal people," and how intoxicating that can be. The reality is, everyone everywhere, all the time, is performing. And that's truer even still on the Internet. But not only are we constantly performing, we're performing differently for every person or group of people. So the question isn't as simple as "Who am I?" It's more complex, like, "Who am I's?" And, according to Patrick, that's not necessarily a bad thing. This begs me to ask the question, "Was Jesus different with everybody?" The major takeaway for me from Patrick's answer here is when he says that only one time does Jesus describe himself in the Bible - one time. And yet we're obsessed with self-expression. We do have some fun talking about what vehicles we would have driven in the Oasis, but then we get into why people will stay in the metaverse once they enter into it, and what will the temptations be, once there? Patrick discusses that there's an ad out there that suggests we make ourselves into our own image, and that there's a show called Alter Ego where people create avatars and that's how they present themselves on stage in front of the judges. Patrick co-wrote an article about the metaverse for The Gospel Coalition, and in this interview he takes us a bit deeper, commenting on two different types of realities: The virtual reality and the augmented reality. Overall he sounds optimistic about the upcoming metaverse and he even reflects on how, even now, we can have coffee with coworkers every day even though they live 2,000 miles away, thanks to our long-distance video cameras. But lest we think we're in the metaverse every time we log online, Patrick explains that we're still in the zygote stage; it's yet to be born into its fullness.I close out our interview by pressing Patrick on how Christians today can urgently prepare for the metaverse. Good news - his answer is not as daunting as you might think! And it all comes down to the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Patrick's Twitter Preorder Truth Over Tribe bookTruth Over Tribe podcast10-Minute Bible Talks podcastGary Gulman on How the States Got Their Abbreviations - Conan on TBSDon't forget to rate and review.

You know the score. You know the quotes. You know the poster. Forty years ago, a wrinkly alien with a magic touch waddled into moviegoers' hearts and made E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL one of the most beloved family films ever made. Steven Spielberg's alien opus surpassed STAR WARS as the #1 film of all time and remained the biggest hit in a decade that also saw the release of GHOSTBUSTERS, BACK TO THE FUTURE, the INDIANA JONES trilogy, and BATMAN. It also delighted critics and audiences alike, spawning toys, video games, and one of Universal Studios' most memorable rides. In short, E.T. was everywhere in the 80s.  In this episode of the podcast, When We Were Young takes you back to Spielberg's childhood, chronicling his rise from suburban nerd to world's most popular filmmaker. Then we chat about CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, Spielberg's first foray to the friendly skies, which offers a surprisingly dark vision of one man's life-shattering obsession with the unknown. Then it's on to “the Summer of Spielberg,” when both E.T. and the Spielberg-shepherded POLTERGEIST entered theaters in June 1982, each becoming instant classics of suburban childhood interrupted by paranormal events.

Pero también repasamos algunas de las novedades que rodean en cartelera al bombazo jurásico del año. Raquel defiende los encantos de “Mr Wain”; Luchini desvela el secreto de la francesa “El Tenor” y cuál es la tapada de la semana…y ambos comparten que la española “La voluntaria”, con un gran cambio de registro de Carmen Machi, se queda más en la intención que en el resultado. ESPECIAL BSO HANS ZIMMER LIVE Y ya que el menú de Estamos de Cine viene en tamaño XXL gracias a los saurios, nuestro crítico musical nos propone hoy un gran chapuzón de bandas sonoras en director con el sello de Hans Zimmer. Prepárate para disfrutar de las versiones más virtuosas de las canciones que compuso para películas como “Gladiador”, “Madagascar”, “Rain Man”, “Piratas del Caribe o “El Rey León”.

The Patricia Highsmith novel The Talented Mr. Ripley has been adapted twice for the screen - most recently in 1995 in a star studded version by director Anthony Minghella.  But the novel's first filmed version came in 1960 from two time Oscar winning director Rene Clement.  Called Purple Noon in an ode to the vibrant Italian sky over Sicily where the story was set and shot, Clement's version casts Alain Delon as the sinister Tom Ripley and Maurice Renot as rich playboy Dickie (called Philippe in this film). Dan and Vicky discuss the moody French classic as well as lots of recently seen including the new Dr. Strange, the return of the The Kids in the Hall, 1945's The Seventh Veil, Spielberg's West Side Story, the new Firestarter and the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards in Shudder TV.   Take a listen also for details on Dan's trip to wine country in California and Vicky's unfortunate tumble in Chelsea.   Hot Date 151: Purple Noon.  Leave us some feedback, follow us on social media and visit our website at hotdatepod.com.

Widely known today as the first summer blockbuster and the movie that sparked shark-phobia in the hearts of many, back in the summer of 1974, 26-year-old “Jaws” director Steven Spielberg lived in constant fear of being fired, his dreams for the film crushed.  Part 1 of this two-part episode focuses on the filming and casting challenges behind the movie “Jaws.” From the 3 malfunctioning mechanical sharks –collectively called Bruce, after Spielberg's lawyer– to the tensions between Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, to the sinking of the Orca boat, Candy and Ashley explore the challenges that caused a scheduled 55-day shoot to extend to 159 days and led some in the crew to start calling the production “Flaws.”

The American film director, producer, and screenwriter Steven Spielberg holds the distinction of being the most commercially successful director of all time. In 1963, when he was only seventeen, Steven Spielberg traveled to Hollywood to participate in a tour of Universal Studios. The bold action Spielberg took next both set him apart from the crowd and put him on an altogether different and faster success track. In this episode of Classic Influence, we travel back to the summer of 1963 to discover the self-authoring mindset and bold actions that separate people like Steven Spielberg, Walt Disney and others from the great mass of people who are content to follow the crowd and think and act according to the designs of others.
