Steven Soderbergh Reminds Us He's Pretty Talented With Penultimate Film 'Side Effects'

If only we had let him do 'Moneyball'. After losing directing duties on Moneyball, Steven Soderbergh said "f*ck it," and decided to throw in the directing towel. After a few more films. Magic Mike was a hit as it made women everywhere go crazy and rub their titties together, which leaves Soderbergh with two films to go. The first of which is the Rooney Mara-starring Side Effects. In the film, Mara stars as a young woman whose life is perfect after Channing Tatum's return from prison. Everything is all dissolves and sailboats. Then, the dissolves get ominous and she turns to medication and Jude Law besmirching to help cope with the pressure of living with Magic Mike himself. After that, everyone is yelling at everyone else! Yelling is how you know a drama is taut. This Soderbergh is going to really make us sorry that he didn't get to make the version of Moneyball where Demetri Martin yells at Catherine Zeta-Jones.

First Look At Special Effects For 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' Is Four Seconds Of Incredible Realism

Look into his eyes. The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is so far notable for its comically long title and the involvement of James Franco, but it turns out they've got some pretty impressive special effects up their sleeves as well, thanks to the wonderful wizards at WETA. So next time you've got four seconds free, check out the video. You'll notice that around the one-second mark, the ape starts turning his head to the side. In seriousness, even though the video is ridiculously short, it's still pretty impressive. I've watched it like 68 times and the ape seems weirdly human each time. Can't wait until this shot shows up in the movie, so I can yell out "there it is!" in the theater and everyone will love me. (ComingSoon)


'Magic Mike XXL' Trailer: Back To The Grind

I wonder why this didn't air during the Superbowl. Damn you, Ginuwine. Here's Channing Tatum just trying to get some furniture building done when your infectious groove gets into his hips. Next thing you know, he's thrusting his willy all over the Florida without the proper eye protection. Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to 2012's hit, is almost here. No promises but this time it might involve more of a plot. Maybe even a resolution. I know how important that is to the audience of this film.


This Clip Of Terrible Special Effects Will Make You Appreciate How Far CGI Has Come

We've come a long, long way. "With great power comes great responsibility." A movie taught me that. Which is ironic, because since they've had CGI at their disposal films have found ways to turn the latest technologies into laughable implementations. This clip from the awesomely-named worldwideinterweb shows us just how bad things got, especially in the early-90s when films with a tenth of the budget wanted to compete with the likes of Jurassic Park and Terminator 2. It didn't go very well for the studios, and even worse for the audiences. Take a look: (A.V. Club)


There's Good And Bad On Every Side In 'Game Of Thrones' Season Four Trailer

April 6th! HBO revealed a trailer for Game of Thrones season four and it's nothing short of ohmygodIwannawatchthisshowrightnow. The trailer hints that more of your favorites will meet horrible ends when Daeneyrs informs Jorah that whether good or bad, those who oppose her have a choice. Dragon or unich, which would you like to be murdered by? We're caught up with each faction. Daeneyrs has grown stronger. Joffrey is still a dick. Jon Snow is still fighting Wildlings. Arya is still seeking revenge. Bran is still doing stuff in the forest. Stannis is still depending on dark magic. Jamie tries on a new hand. And let's assume Theon is trying on his own prosthetic. Wow. George R.R. Martin really knows how to stretch out a narrative. It also looks like this could be the season where acting terrible and entitled catches up to the Lannisters as a man from Tywin's past arrives looking for revenge. How that will unfold, I'm not sure but I've been warned by book readers that a storm of crazy is on the horizon. I can't wait to see what happens next. But not badly enough to actually read. Ewww, gross.
