18 Genius Pieces Of Movie Exposition
1. Jurassic Park (1993)
The Exposition: Hammond: “Well! Mr DNA! Where’d you come from?”
Mr DNA: “From your blood! Just one drop of your blood contains billions of strands of DNA, the building blocks of life. A DNA strand like me is a blueprint for building a living thing.
“And sometimes animals that went extinct millions of years ago, like dinosaurs, left their blueprints behind for us to find. We just had to know where to look! A hundred million years ago, there were mosquitoes, just like today.
“And, just like today, they fed on the blood of animals. Even dinosaurs! Sometimes, after biting a dinosaur, the mosquito would land on a branch of a tree, and get stuck in the sap.
“After a long time, the tree sap would get hard and become fossilised, just like a dinosaur bone, preserving the mosquito inside!”
The Short Version: Mosquitoes fed on dinosaurs and then became trapped in amber. Hello dinosaur blood, hello cloning!
Why It’s Genius: Time to prove that even science can be fun in a Spielberg movie! Mr DNA might look like that annoying Microsoft Office paperclip from days gone by but this animated character offers the basic facts about DNA and genetics in an easily digestible format.
Anything that stops your mum asking, “What’s going on?” during a film has to be a good thing.

Nice art capturing the films of Edgar Wright.
Blurry images taken from the human brain reveal movie clips just watched by test subjects.
For the reconstructed brain videos, the team drew from a separate library of 18 million seconds of YouTube video clips selected at random. If the brain activity measurements are good and the model is accurate, their process should find the clip from the library most similar to the video actually viewed.
The result was a set of blurry, ghostly continuous videos approximating what the subjects were watching.
“You’re reconstructing a movie that they saw using other movies that they didn’t actually see,” Gallant said. This counterintuitive approach is key for proving the decoder works.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s J Edgar trailer online
If this trailer’s admissible as evidence, Leonardo DiCaprio looks set to finally bag a well-deserved Best Actor Oscar in 2012.
Whether he’s appearing as a young or old J Edgar Hoover in this trailer for Clint Eastwood’s long-awaited biopic, DiCaprio absolutely commands the screen.
And that’s before we’ve even seen the bits where he puts on a dress.
