Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh is a prolific filmmaker. He has made nearly 28 movies in just 25 years. Some of his films were good like “Traffic,” “Erin Brockovich,” and his groundbreaking “sex, lies, and videotape.”
But some movies in Soderbergh’s oeuvre were just okay such as “The Good German” and “Full Frontal.” His latest film, the female-driven espionage thriller “Haywire,” falls somewhere in the middle. It’s a riveting action thriller with a formulaic plot.
The main character is Mallory Kane (played by MMA superstar Gina Carano), a highly trained operative working for a government security contractor. The CIA trained her then betrayed her. Sounds familiar? It is like a female “Bourne” movie except Mallory remembers everything.
But what keeps the film ticking along is Carano herself. Making her big blockbuster debut, the actress known as the “Face of Women’s Mixed Martial Arts” is predictably adept with her action scenes but also surprisingly holds her own against seasoned co-stars like Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender.

SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is getting attention with opponents of the controversial federal anti-piracy legislation picking up steam, according to MSNBC, while its supporters are backing off.
The Obama administration has expressed concerns about SOPA and there's an Internet blackout being planned for tomorrow, Wednesday. So far, voting for both SOPA and it's sister, PIPA (The Protect IP Act), has been delayed, at least for now.
But the real story is how piracy is affecting those who work for the industry. Most recently, Kathy Wolfe, Founder and CEO of Wolfe Video and Wolfe Releasing, has written an editorial on HuffingtonPost.com saying how piracy affects independent filmmakers. "Not only has piracy negatively affected our bottom line, but more significantly, it has undermined the careers of many talented aspiring filmmaker," according to Wolfe.
Well said! Read the whole article right here.

Written by guest writer Catherine Atkins:
The concept of “new movies” is changing rapidly, as new films are moving from the theaters to your home screen more quickly than ever before. Largely thanks to premium satellite tv deals and special movie programs, you can often find movies available for home viewing only a few weeks after they landed in theaters to begin with. This is great for movie fans, as it has eliminated the impatient waiting time that used to separate movie and dvd releases. Now, when you look forward to a film hitting the theaters, you may as well already be looking forward to watching it at home! So, here are some of the hottest movies that will be hitting the screens early in 2012.
Red Tails – This film from producer George Lucas and director Anthony Hemingway tells the true story of a bold and unique group of African-American fighter pilots in World War II. At a time at which African-Americans in the U.S. military still faced a great deal of discrimination, this group of pilots – known as the Tuskegee Airmen – fought fearlessly in the air over the war, earning themselves hero status and impacting the war. The film features the likes of Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding, Jr. in a promising cast.
The Grey – This is a somewhat strange looking film, featuring Liam Neeson in the main role as the leader of a group of men whose plane has crashed in the northern wilderness of Alaska. Fans have come to love Neeson’s typical grit and ruggedness through films like Taken and Unknown, and this time around it seems the popular actor has run out of men to fight – now, he’s fighting wolves. This one should, if nothing else, be full of entertaining action. (Manny the Movie Guy has special upcoming interviews with the cast headed by Liam Neeson and director Joe Carnahan)
Man On A Ledge – Another early 2012 thriller, Man On A Ledge looks to follow in the path of movies like Phonebooth and Collateral, which feature people stuck in stagnant locations while trying to free themselves. In Man On A Ledge, Sam Worthington gets the starring role as Nick Cassidy, a wrongly accused diamond thief who climbs out onto a ledge high above New York City in and effort to prove his own innocence. Cassidy seeks to distract the city while his brother and others work to capture the man who framed Cassidy in the diamond theft. (Check back for Manny the Movie Guy's one-on-one interviews with Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks)
The Woman In Black – This is a crime/mystery movie that some have likened to a horror film, and which is starting to generate a lot of curiosity among fans. The film features a young lawyer who discovers that a village he has to work in is being haunted by a ghost seeking revenge for events from her life. The reason for the curiosity? Simple: The young lawyer is played by Daniel Radcliffe, in his first major cinematic role since bringing Harry Potter to life.
