Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Milana Vayntrub Is Squirrel Girl

This Is Us star Milana Vayntrub has landed the coveted role in Freeform’s upcoming live-action comedy, cast alongside Derek Theler, Jeremy Tardy, Calum Worthy, Matthew Moy and Kate Comer, EW has confirmed.

The 10-episode series — which hails from showrunner Kevin Biegel and executive producers Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory — will follow six young superhumans learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.

Vayntrub, who played Kevin’s stage partner and brief love interest on This Is Us, will play Doreen Green, a.k.a Squirrel Girl, who is a totally empowered fangirl with the incredible powers of… a squirrel. Her greatest quality is her optimism, and her best friend is a pet squirrel, Tippy Toe.

Baby Daddy‘s Theler will play Craig Hollis (a.k.a. Mister Immortal), who can’t die… or so he says. Although Craig’s superpower seems amazing, he hasn’t made use of it at all – he figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to do anything heroic, what’s the rush?

Dear White People‘s Tardy will play Dwayne Taylor (a.k.a. Night Thrasher), a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur who also deeply believes in justice.

Austin & Ally‘s Worthy will play Robbie Baldwin (a.k.a. Speedball), an impulsive people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence who throws kinetic balls of energy that are completely out of control.

2 Broke Girls‘ Moy will play Zack Smith (a.k.a. Microbe), a shy hypochondriac whose ability is that he can talk to germs that tell him where you’ve been, what you ate, and with whom you’ve hung out. It’s impossible to keep secrets around him.

The Comeback‘s Comer rounds out the cast as Deborah Fields (a.k.a. Debra), a proud, funny and quick-witted, low-level telekinetic — very low, as in she can move a paper cup.

“I am thrilled beyond belief to be working with this incredible group of actors,” Biegel says. “They are funny, sincere, eager, charming, and perfectly embody these characters. It’ll be a blast and an honor to create this show with each of them.”

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Subject-Swiss Army Man
Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
