I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
What are the odds of getting even? 13 to one.
Danny Ocean's team of criminals are back and are composing a plan more personal than ever. When ruthless casino owner Willy Bank double-crosses Reuben Tishkoff, causing a heart attack, Danny Ocean vows that him and his team will do anything to bring Willy Bank and everything he's got down. Even if it includes hiring help from one of their own enemies, Terry Benedict.
όλες αυτές οι αντρικές-circa-esquire-1973 ρομαντζοϊστορίες για Αυτή Την Πόλη, και τον σινάτρα, και τη μεγάλη μπάζα, ε, τις στηρίζει το άτιμο, γιατί είναι όντως το πιο ρομαντικό από τα τρία. γιατί το κίνητρο δεν είναι ούτε τα λεφτά, ούτε μια γυναίκα- είναι ένας φίλος που προδόθηκε από εκείνον που δε σεβάστηκε τη Χειραψία Με Τον Σινάτρα, και που ήταν πιο αδίστακτος και ιερόσυλος από ό,τι η Αγάπη Για Το Παιχνίδι διατάζει. είναι διαποτισμένο με old versus new γλυκιά μελαγχολία το έργο, από τη μηχανή παντογνώστη του julian sands ("αναλογικοί παίχτες σε ψηφιακό κόσμο") μέχρι τον 'ξεπερασμένο' ρούμπεν που δίνει ώθηση στην ιστορία, και μέχρι τις μικρές στιγμές του brad και του george που δε χρειάζονται πάνω από δυο λόγια τη φορά για να μεταδώσουν αυτό που λέει κι αυτό που είναι η ταινία: το τελευταίο μεγάλο κόλπο, η τελευταία μεγάλη πλάκα δύο (τριών, δεκατριών) αγοριών που ξέρουν πως μεγαλώνουν.
Having rewatched all three of the Ocean's films within a short period of time (the last two within 24 hours of each other), I find myself puzzled by the second one. There's no doubt that the third movie is superior to its predecessor and that it captures some of the magic of the first film in the series. But what is different about that second movie? It is simply that the second movie was set in Europe, and that the Ocean movies work best when they take place in Las Vegas? Is it because the second movie was a little too self referential and impressed with its own cleverness?
I still maintain that the second movie isn't a bad movie,…
This sequel recaptures the magic from the first film makes for another entertaining, stylish, and witty sequel, albeit an unecessary one. A good conclusion to a decent trilogy.
All you need to know about Ocean's Thirteen is that Casey Affleck and Scott Caan don't bicker until 92 minutes in.
"You shook Sinatra's hand, you should know better."
The revenge angle is a very good angle. Also, Soderbergh really knows how to do a title and credit sequence.
Now this was MUCH better! A simple plot with a couple of twist, no love story entwined, just all around fun. It may sound terrible but I was happy to not see Julia Roberts in this one. I loved that it was the group coming together to help someone and wasn't just to deepen their pockets, although they do make off with a good take! Saw some of the stuff coming but was surprised by a few things as well. Gotta give it to Soderbergh for stepping in and making up for the mistake that was Ocean's 12, I say he redeemed himself with this one.
Even though I didn't thoroughly enjoy all the films I did have a great…
Pacino gives this life. 2nd best of the trilogy.
It takes a while (longer than it took in 11 or 12) for the heist to rev up to its climax. When we finally get there, after a strange and complex build-up, the climax is only modestly satisfying.
I semi-watched Ocean's Eleven the other night, and in doing so was surprised at how short it was and how much plot it manages to squeeze in.
There are parts of Ocean's Thirteen I do like, and I think the overall storyline is a pretty good one. And even though I do laugh at the Casey Affleck side-plot - this film seriously suffers from being overly long to the point where you begin to lose interest.
Something else that I picked up on this film was that it always felt like it had to redeem itself/ make excuses for shots they make at social situations which just things seem even more awkward!
This is the one where Reuben gets conned by a Vegas tycoon played by Al Pacino. Ocean's Thirteen gets even. The gentlemen gangsters again succeed in making me forget that there's nothing great about crime. Brillant cast, as good as any of the other parts.
It's an unnecessary sequel, but it's something of a cut above a lot of them because the ensemble is still plenty game and willing to fulfill their functions every step of the way, however miniscule they may or may not be. Weirdly enough, Soderbergh doesn't try to pull out the stops to make this a superior entry to its predecessors or anything and it ends up kind of working in the film's favor rather than forcing it against some unseen qualitative current. Also, Pacino was really evidently starting to wear out his welcome.......he does have some nice barbs up his sleeve, though i.e. "You know, you're half smart, Ocean."
It's a fun caper adventure. Cast is top-notch, and just fun to watch.
I just like the way Steven Soderbergh shoots movies.
If you tell a joke too many times, people will end up delivering you back its punch line.
bit of a slow burner compared to #1/#2, but the conclusion was as excellent as i expected.
