While Steven Soderbergh is notoriously indecisive when it comes to the type of filmmaker he would like to be – causing him to move suddenly and irregularly between blockbuster, independent, and micro-budget projects – the one consistent throughout his career has been his knack for films about criminals. From the “Ocean’s 11” franchise to his underseen adaptation of Elmore Leonard‘s “Out of Sight,” Soderbergh is arguably at his best when making films about people who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

This Sunday, an era comes to an end as the final episode of Lena Dunham’s HBO comedy “Girls” airs. First arriving in the spring of 2012, the show came to pass after Dunham’s second feature as director, 2010’s “Tiny Furniture,” was a hit on the festival circuit, bringing her to the attention of the cable network and producer Judd Apatow, who paired her with writer-producer Jenni Konner.

Somewhere between a bunch of commercials and a half-time show, a game of football was played last night, and it was a doozy. The Super Bowl went into overtime for the first time in history, the New England Patriots reigned supreme and fans got one helluva show. And advertisers got a lot of eyeballs.

“I just feel like I’m a really perfect fit for your magazine,” Hannah (Lena Dunham) says to a magazine editor she’s pitching. “I don’t give a s— about anything, yet I simultaneously have opinions about everything.” Dear, millennial, don’t do this. For better or worse, that’s “Girls” dialogue, but I only say that because the HBO show is not everyone’s cup of tea. “Girls” dropped off there for a minute and fell out of favor with the water-cooler-based cultural conversation, but the consensus is the show is ending strong: season five was arguably their best to date.

Kylo Ren has become one of the more divisive elements of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” While most everyone can agree that Rey is a great addition to the franchise, people seem to fall into two camps regarding Kylo Ren. Either you think he’s a multi-layered, emotional bad guy who brings a new take to the Darth Vader archetype, or you just think he’s a petulant little baby with a lightsaber and a wannabe Vader mask.

You  might not know it, but Adam Driver has a military background. Shortly after 9/11, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, but was medically discharged before he could sent into the field, and subsequently went on to Julliard. The rest, as they say, is history. But he hasn’t forgotten his background, and founded Arts In The Armed Forces, which brings the live theater experience to U.S. military branches. And all of that will serve Driver well as he prepares for a new role. Continue reading Sylvester Stallone To Direct Adam Driver In ‘Tough As They Come’ at The Playlist.
