Three sentence movie reviews: Side Effects
This movie was chock full of great acting by Rooney Mara and Jude Law* and a twisty, turn-y plot that I advise you to do your best not to discover any part of before you enter the theater. Immediately after the movie I wasn’t quite sure how I felt due to the many plot twists, but after lively discussion with the movie-going companion of the day, I decided I liked it. I don’t really want to think that Mr. Soderbergh will
stop making movies, but if so, this was a good one to end with.
Where watched: Regal City Center Stadium 12
Cost: Free, thanks to the generous folks at Pike Schemes.

*sadly, Mr. Tatum’s performance was awful due to massive amounts of jaw-clenching (he’s regressed, just when he was doing so well) and declaim-off-of-cue-cards-type acting. Catherine Zeta-Jones was also painful to watch. That said, this was still a good movie.
