This list was inspired by a conversation on the March 2nd/9th editions of Mark Kermode & Simon Mayo's film review, where…
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.
Disposable entertainment that helps ease the pain of living this cruel life that we are forced to live.
I was going to the gym yesterday, instead I went home, had some cake and watched Ocean's eleven, it's really excellent for that purpose
"Apparently he's got a record longer than my.. ..it's ..long."
Pure enjoyment, from start to finish.
Soderbergh's remake of Ocean's Eleven which kick-started a new trilogy, is perhaps the most baller film of all time.
I mean, it's just so dope; the dialogue pitch-perfect, the soundtrack inspired and the direction so maticulous, you can almost envision Stevie brushing his shoulder off in the corner of each frame.
The performances are collectively fantastic with the trip of Clooney, Damon and Pitt bossing the picture.
Don Cheadle's British accent is spot-on too - me and all my pals speak EXACTLY LIKE HE DOES.
As modern casts go this has one of the best. Steven Soderbergh directs Clooney,Pitt,Damon and co. with a nonchalance that showed just how cool remakes could be.
Heist movies can be hit or miss affairs,this one was most definitely a hit. A huge box-office take and critically acclaimed for a high concept plot with ridiculous scenarios that somehow just works,this was the first real crime-caper movie of the 21st century. Intricate and intelligent with above all a cast of genuinely likeable misfits,this spawned two sequels of diminishing quality.Cool,assured and entertaining,Soderbergh delivered a fresh take on a genre that had stagnated since the seventies.
Not the best heist movie out there but thanks to the great chemistry amongst the cast, this is surely an entertaining one. Clever, witty, and stylish fun.
I've never seen the original, but I love the plot of this movie. Such a well thought out and exciting film.
Still the best of the three. Looks great and is a lot of fun.
Here is one of the rare sequels that I can actually attest is better than the original and I am usually a real stickler for what's original. Here is a high brow cast headed by George Clooney and Brad Pitt with a long list of others and their goal is a high payoff from a Las Vegas casino which is sealed like a steal trap. It is a lot of cool breezy fun which will definitely entertain. The remix of Elvis is a great touch that fits perfectly with this re-envisioning of this 1950s Rat Pack vehicle.
One of my favourite films. With such an vibrant mix of characters, presented by a truly ensemble cast, and the heist being so well crafted it's hard to miss, but it's truly Vegas swagger, bolstered by ice-cool soundtrack and Steven Soderburghs lush direction and signature cinematography, put the style right up there with the substance, and thats why the film is great.
What can you say about a film like this? Iconic.
Intricately planned and executed heists are one of the most addictive things in movies for me. I love watching all the pieces fitting together, and I always seem to tense up in fear that the bandits will be caught. I imagine they're pretty tough to write, and this one had the added challenge of needing 11 different guys to have a prominent role. Amazingly they didn't even use any of the ideas from the original movie. Other than the overarching storyline and title, this movie has nothing in common with its predecessor. Luckily, even without drawing from the original, they created a really cool heist film.
The cast must be mentioned first. It's like someone said, "Who are the biggest…
Still as slick and stylish as I remembered.
The 2001 remake of the 1960 Sinatra/Martin/Davis Jr film of the same name (That Ive not seen)
Im a big fan of heist/crime/hustle type of films so this is right up my street. Smart, clever, a great ensemble cast. Danny Ocean (George Clooney) is released from prison and decides to break his parole, travel to Vegas and pull off an audacious heist of 3 casinos in one night and in the process get one over on a friends rival Terry Benedict who is the owner of all 3 casinos. so Ocean, along with his gang (Bernie Mac, Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, Matt Damon, Elliott Gould, Don Cheadle, Scott Caan, Eddie Jemison, Shaobo Qin and Carl Reiner) set about planning the…
bet he'd cut 15 minutes out of this today, but it's fun to watch Soderbergh figure out how quickly he can get across what he needs to.
