The Late Movies: Dogs Being Cute

Let's just get this over with. I saw a cute dog video (the first below), and decided that y'all needed some more cute dog videos in your lives. Now, on with the show!

Labrador With Human Hands


Puppy Can "Whistle"

This little guy can mimic human whistles with his high-pitched howls!

Puppy Confused By Whistling

This guy is not sure what to do when his owner starts whistling. After some quizzical head-tilting, he just gives up.

Barrel of Puppies

Oh jeez. Bichon puppies scrabbling, wagging, and jumping. (The video description says they were being moved from house to playpen, so no, they didn't stay in this barrel for long!)

Bichon Frise Can Fetch at 13 Weeks

He's pretty good.

Falling Asleep on the Stairs

Animals falling asleep never gets old.

Dog Watches Movie About Dogs

This four-month-old golden retriever gets emotionally involved with "Air Buddies," a movie that features dogs speaking with human voices. Note that this dog is perhaps the ONLY viewer to be so interested in this film, which Wikipedia explains is the sixth film in the "Air Bud" series.

Welsh Corgi Puppy Doing Nothing in Particular

I don't need the puppy to be doing anything in order for it to be cute. Just hanging out, looking at stuff, waddling around, moving its ears. That'll do. Bonus points because one ear is floppier than the other.

There are approximately 14 million cute dog videos online. I urge you to share your favorites in the comments. Only rule: NO CATS! (Cats are for next week.) Also, if you haven't seen it yet, check out Jason English's fantastic blog The Late Movies: Dogs Welcoming Home Soldiers.

There's a Simple Trick to Sort Movies and TV Shows by Year on Netflix

Netflix is stocked with so many movies and TV shows that it’s not always easy to actually find what you’re looking for. And while sorting by genre can help a little, even that’s a bit too broad for some. There’s one helpful hack, though, that you probably didn’t know about—and it could make the endless browsing much less painful.

As POPSUGAR reports: By simply opening Netflix up to one of its specific category pages—Horror, Drama, Comedy, Originals, etc.—you can then sort by release year with just a few clicks. All you need to do is look at the top of the page, where you’ll see an icon that looks like a box with four dots in it.

Once you click on it, it will expand to a tab labeled “Suggestions for You.” Just hit that again and a dropdown menu will appear that allows you to sort by year released or alphabetical and reverse-alphabetical orders. When sorted by release year, the more recent movies or shows will be up top and they'll get older as you scroll to the bottom of the page.


This tip further filters your Netflix options, so if you’re in the mood for a classic drama, old-school comedy, or a retro bit of sci-fi, you don’t have to endlessly scroll through every page to find the right one.

If you want to dig deeper into Netflix’s categories, here’s a way to find all sorts of hidden ones the streaming giant doesn’t tell you about. And also check out these 12 additional Netflix tricks that should make your binge-watching that much easier.


New LEGO Set Recreates Jurassic Park's Iconic Velociraptor Chase Scenes

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the fifth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, is skulking into theaters on June 22. That makes now the perfect time to revisit the original film in LEGO form.

This LEGO set, spotted by Nerdist, depicts some of the most suspenseful scenes from the 1993 movie. There's the main computer room where Ariana Richards's Lex shows off her hacker skills while Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) struggle to keep a hungry dinosaur from barging in. Just like in the film, the door features a deadbolt lock that's velociraptor-proof (though, unfortunately for the characters, the detachable window is not). Other Easter eggs hidden in this part include a map of Isla Nublar and a screener saver of LEGO Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight).

In the neighboring room, you'll find the cold storage unit where the dinosaur embryos are kept, along with the fake shaving cream can Nedry uses to steal them. The final section is the kitchen, where Tim (Joseph Mazzello) and Lex are stalked by the velociraptor. There's less room for them to hide in the LEGO version compared to the movie set, but there is at least one functioning cabinet for Lex to tuck herself into. Closer inspection reveals even more details from the film, like the lime-green Jello Lex is eating when the raptors first arrive and the step ladder the gang uses to escape into the air ducts during the final chase.
