WE’RE THE MILLERS Review

The quaint idea of the nuclear family is one that’s been skewered a thousand different ways.  It’s a portrait of American domesticity that never really existed except on television in the 1950s.  We’re the Millers tries to knock the nuclear family ideal and yet feels strangely beholden to it.  Filled with hilarious, mean-spirited comedy, Rawson Marshall Thurber‘s movie swings between a cold, dead heart completely immune from sentimentality and then over to a mushy center where characters inadvertently bond and learn important life lessons.  The space in between is filled with plenty of great jokes that you’ll struggle to remember mere moments after leaving the theater.

Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 DC Comics release “Superman: Brainiac,” Superman: Unbound is the latest DC universe animated original movie from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The story is about a destructive force that is devastating planets across the galaxy, with Earth next in its sights, and even Superman may not be capable of halting the destruction alone. The film features the voices of Matt Bomer (White Collar) as Superman, John Noble (Fringe) as Brainiac, Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl, and Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane.  For more on the movie, here’s Dave’s review and our WonderCon panel recap.

While at WonderCon, actress Molly Quinn spoke at a roundtable about how she wanted to voice Supergirl, what it was like to play such an iconic character, how much fun she has doing the grunting and yelling for the fight scenes, the process of narrating books 4 and 5 of The Mortal Instruments audio books, what she loves about sci-fi and fantasy, and how she would love to do a live-action Batgirl.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

SUPERMAN: UNBOUND Review

Anaheim’s WonderCon 2013 played host to the world premiere of Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment’s Superman: Unbound.  Directed by DC veteran and new supervisor of DC’s animation James Tucker (Legion of Super Heroes), Superman: Unbound was adapted by Bob Goodman (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Parts 1 and 2) from Geoff Johns’ five-part comic book arc, Superman: Brainiac.  The story centers on Superman (voiced by Matt Bomer) and his battle against Brainiac (voiced by John Noble) who is attempting to learn what he can from Earth and its intelligent life before destroying the planet.  Also highlighted in Superman: Unbound are the relationships of Superman/Clark Kent with his secret girlfriend Lois Lane (voiced by Stana Katic) and his recently-arrived cousin Kara/Supergirl (voiced by Molly C. Quinn).

Though Tucker’s version makes some changes from the original comic arc that may displease some fans, Superman: Unbound was pure Saturday morning animated fun.  The animation is bold, bright and unafraid to splash a little blood here and there.  Superman: Unbound, which will be available on Blu-ray/DVD/VOD on May 7th, is rated PG-13 for violence, action and a rude gesture (which elicited a great crowd reaction).  DC Entertainment continues its great track record of animated fare with this newest installment.  Hit the jump for my review and be sure to check out the panel recap from WonderCon.

Winner of AFM 2012′s Craziest Film: HANSEL AND GRETEL & THE 420 WITCH

Earlier today, Steve was walking the floor at the American Film Market (AFM).  There are plenty of genre films trying to get distribution, but there’s always one that stands out as the most bonkers, utterly ridiculous picture.  This year, the clear winner is Hansel and Gretel & The 420 Witch.  You can see the full poster after the jump along with some images, but I’ll briefly recap what this movie has going for it.  First it’s going to capitalize on Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, so already that market is cornered.  Everyone else will clearly be late to that party.  Also, 420 Witch is from the producers of Twilight, so now that audience is covered.  And what is the plot of this masterpiece?  It’s a modern take where the witch uses pot instead of candy to lure teenagers into her home.  That’s right, kids: pot, the mellowest illegal drug, can be used for sinister purposes.  I hope this is Reefer Madness for a new generation.  At the very least, we clearly have a movie with something for everyone (if everyone is the 12 morbidly curious people who seek out this flick; I might be one of them).

Earlier this week, we posted the recap of the Castle panel from this year’s Comic Con. The cast was on hand to give us a sneak peek at Season 4 as well as some insight as to the fallout from the season 3 finale. While our recap had plenty of highlights and quotes from your favorite mystery writer and homicide detectives, I was able to interview the cast and wheedle out a few more secrets.

Other than the obvious repercussions from the cliffhanger ending of season 3, the new season of Castle also promises to have some fun. In addition to a bachelor party episode (you’ll have to read on to find out whose), there will be a special superhero episode early in the season and a Halloween episode of Castle that might even feature a certain ghost-busting guest start. Fans of the show will want to check out more of our insider info, so hit the jump.

Having ended their third season with a literal bang more than two months ago, the ABC series Castle has kept their fans in suspense ever since. Star Nathan Fillion and the rest of the cast of Castle were at Comic Con today to resolve the cliffhanger from the season finale and shed some light on the future of the series. Along with Fillion, who plays mystery novel author, Rick Castle, co-stars John Huertas (Javier Esposito), Tamala Jones (Lanie Parish), Seamus Dever (Kevin Ryan) and Molly Quinn (Alexis Castle) fielded questions from the audience and rewarded the room packed full of Castle fans. Unfortunately, Castle’s muse Stana Katic (Kate Beckett) was unable to attend the event. (This worked out well for one lucky fan, who got to reenact a line of dialogue with Fillion up on stage.) There is a lot to get to about the upcoming season, including new cast members, changing relationships between characters and two special episodes, so hit the jump!
