I wanted to know how some of these effects were done in this trailer here

First of all at 0:21 to 0:22 Just before the text appears theirs like some distortion i wanted to know how that was done.

And at 1:47 i was wondering how that light that comes at the camera was done.

Thanks for your help.

The transition: looks like levels were blown out and then brought to black, the colors were mapped to blue and then red, I saw a bit of texture in there- may come from the image used or grain or a separate image, a bit of blur and a lens flare- but that's just my guess. There's no real formula, play around with the above to get that transition.
The light- one way to do a laser pointing at the camera is to have a Knoll Lens Flare preset- Red Laser attached to a light in AE, with Trapcode Lux on top- to see the beam.

To get a closer look at the transition, I would suggest downloading the trailer from iTunes or, then viewing it frame by frame. You'll probably find that it's just 3-4 frames of grungy texture. Whack a swooshy sound over it and you're done.
