NYCC 2015: Fox’s ‘Bordertown’ Panel
  |  @   |  

Bordertown is a new animated series from executive producer Mark Hentemann (Family Guy). Much like the show it’ll draw its biggest comparisons to, Bordertown is a raunchy, politically incorrect, and yet very socially aware comedy. Joining Hentemann on stage at New York Comic-Con on Saturday night were writer Lalo Alcaraz, and stars Hank Azaria, Alex Borstein, Nicholas Gonzalez, and Judah Friedlander. As a lifelong fan of The Simpsons and Family Guy, being this close to Chief Wiggum and Lois Griffin was a great experience.

SDCC 2015: ‘Family Guy’ Panel & Official Trailer!
  |  @   |  

Am I the only one who finds it hard to believe that Family Guy started in 1999 and is about to start it’s 14th (!!!) season? The show about a dysfunctional Rhode Island family, including a sociopathic baby with matricide on his mind, and a borderline alcoholic talking dog, found a committed audience, and gained a huge cult following on FOX. When the show was cancelled, fan demand led to a comeback and with it’s ridiculous brand of sophomoric, immature, and sexually suggestive humor, Family Guy has found its niche in the cultural zeitgeist of Americana. Like many shows on for as long as it’s been, many of the shows quotable lines are part of the lexicon.. What Bart Simpson did in the early 90s for “Cowabunga”, Family Guy has done for “Giggidy” and “IT’S GONNA RAIN!” Show creator and star Seth MacFarlane transitioned to a successful film writer/director (Ted/Ted 2), and even hosted the Academy Awards in 2013.

Spoiler Talk: Killers

Well here comes another romantic comedy, which seems to be the style nowadays. That’s right Katherine Heigl, who plays Jen, and Ashton Kutcher, who plays Spencer, bring you Killers. While this film did not necessarily bring a whole lot of new things to the genre, if you enjoy this type of movie, you will probably enjoy this as well.

While Killers was a by-the-numbers kind of movie, it was still a pretty fun popcorn flick, especially with the extremely beautiful Heigl involved. I definitely feel that the movie had a decent supporting cast to add to the two big names as well. When you add in Tom Selleck and Catherine O’Hara as the Kornfelt’s, Jen’s parents, this definitely makes the movie a lot more charming.

Throughout the movie you get a lot of fun action and some pretty decent laughs, but where the movie doesn’t come all the way together is in the execution of both of these genres to their full potential. The action scenes are not as spectacular as they could be and the comedy is definitely not as funny as it could be. The script just doesn’t seem to have been fully realized, which is a shame considering how charming the cast is.

Anyways enough of the chit chat, let’s jump right into some SPOILER TALK! The following are my thoughts, sprinkled with spoilers and you should all put in your thoughts about the movie by stopping by the comment section.
