Are you in or out?
Less than 24 hours into his parole, charismatic thief Danny Ocean is already rolling out his next plan: In one night, Danny's hand-picked crew of specialists will attempt to steal more than $150 million from three Las Vegas casinos. But to score the cash, Danny risks his chances of reconciling with ex-wife, Tess.
Sometimes after rewatching a film I wasn't planning to watch, I come to Letterboxd to log it only to encounter a rating I can't make sense of. When I joined I just rated films I've seen from memory.
My memory sucks as I really don't know why I rated this three stars.
This was on the telly tonight and I just happened to pass by, got sucked in by the company it was keeping and the buckets of charm it was oozing. The entertainment it provides is effortless and smooth, strengthened by the natural way the impressive ensemble cast bounce off of each other.
Just a fantastic bit of escapism.

Ocean's Eleven commits three of the cardinal sins of Hollywood filmmaking:
1. Thou shalt not profit off the success of a previous film.
2. Thou shalt not deliver comedy primarily through talented actors reading a humorous script.
3. Thou shalt not hold thine audience in suspense by means of misdirection or withholding information.
Yet somehow, by the glorious magic of Steven Soderbergh's tight pacing, skillful cinematography and classy soundtrack, as well as his wonderful collaboration with writer Ted Griffin, it succeeds in robbing me of my heart.
This isn't a movie, it's a magic trick.
Disposable entertainment that helps ease the pain of living this cruel life that we are forced to live.
Good heist films are rare, but when they are made they tend to become instant hits, because everybody loves them. There is absolutely no shame in admitting you do by the way. The art of the steal, the baddy as the film’s protagonist, glorification of the life of a thief, these are thrilling aspects of the sub-genre that grand them their gratification. ‘Ocean’s Eleven’, which I had never seen before even though being a huge Brad Pitt fan, is no exception to this rule of thumb and with a talented director as Soderbergh behind the steer wheel, nothing stops this all-stars cast from shining in the attractive roles they have been offered to play. And why wouldn’t they? They get…
Part of A Film A Day
"You guys are pros. The best. I'm sure you can make it out of the casino. Of course, lest we forget, once you're out the front door, you're still in the middle of the fucking desert!"
Ocean's Eleven is one of the most original heist films ever made. And it's not because of how smart it is, or the way the heist goes down - it's in the way which director, Steven Soderbergh approaches the material. In no way is this a 'serious' heist films (such as Thief or Heat). It's a film that can be watched over and over - merely for the enjoyment of the dialogue. Rather than taking the route of…
fun times. good music
awesome cast and plot, one of my favs
"Where the fuck you been"
Oceans eleven is the story of Danny Ocean and his team robbing 3 casinos in Las Vegas. I've seen this before but it's been quite some time and I gotta say I still enjoy it. I think it's a simple, quick paced, fun movie that anyone can enjoy. The performances are super strong but they don't really need to be in this kind of movie. The performances are exactly where they need to be for this type of movie. It's enjoyable and simple.
never gets old and is exciting to watch every single time!
Commits the crime of being too much goddamn fun
me quedo sin frases para poner en esta página para cuando quiero decir que una peli está wapa.
aun así os comento: está wapa
harmless, entertaining, and casey affleck is adorable
I wanted to like this film more but never the less still pretty good. The amazing cast is possibly the best part of the movie, I may rewatch it sometime in the future, but Ocean's Eleven wasn't as anticipated as speculated.
I hadn't seen the first ten yet, but my brother told me it was okay to start with this one.
It had its moments (and they grew more plentiful as the heist progressed), but it's still not as good as the remake of The Italian Job.
