This Sunday is Father’s Day, the holiday where you show the paternal figure in your life how much you appreciate all he’s done for you with the gift of an ugly tie. While we contemplate the injustice of that, let’s take a look at some of our favorite movie and TV dads in today’s Roundtable.
Our reviewers are split on the merits of Zack Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel’ reboot. This may turn out to be one of the more divisive films of the year. The movie has had preview screenings the last couple of days and opens wide today. This is your opportunity to tell us what you think. Is this a great rebirth for the franchise, or a super dud?

Product placement in movies and TV is certainly not a new development, but it seems to be getting more overt and annoying in recent years. As far as I can tell, this week’s theatrical release of ‘The Internship’ is essentially a 119-minute commercial for Google that we’re expected to pay upwards of $15 a ticket for the privilege of sitting through. For today’s Roundtable, we look at other examples of blatant and obnoxious product placement.
