Pirates… they’re not as fun as they used to be. Instead of yo-ho-ho-ing, singing sea shanties, drinking barrels of rum and inexplicably burying treasure instead of spending it, pirates now prefer actually kidnapping and killing people off the coast of Somalia. At least they’re still a bit of craic on screen. The Rosses take a Long John look at the silver screen’s best buccaneers. Click HERE or the pic above to read this battle at Metro Film Fight Club.

Alas fellow humans, Professor Magic Xylophone here, and it’s time to separate out the movies you should show to your children in order to encourage a good scientific mind from those that should be banned for spreading as much misinformation as your high school physics book, when it told you there were only four dimensions. This time we’re gonna have a look at what is considered the gold standard of Dinosaur movies (No not the land before time, which I believe should be banned forever), Jurassic Park! Continue reading

Thanks to a recent excellent cinematic documentary, we now know who would win in a fight between a Mega Shark and a Giant Octopus. Sadly, with 65 million years separating them, we may never know who would win in a fight between a shark and a dinosaur. But with a little help from Steven Spielberg, the Rosses make their cases.
