Each week I'll post a new letter and all you have to do is nominate a film that you think…
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…
The genius of the past decays remorselessly into the routine of the present, and one example is the downfall of the caper picture. The classic caper genre had rules set in stone. It began (1) with an impregnable fortress (vault, casino, museum, or even Fort Knox). Then we met (2) a group of men who hoped to impregnate it. There was (3) a setup about the defenses of the fortress, and (4) a chalk talk in which the mastermind told the others what they were going to do and how they were going to do it. This had the advantage of also briefing the audience, so that the actual caper could proceed in suspenseful silence while we understood what they…
While I wasn't a huge fan of Garcia's villain in the first movie, it was still a heck of a lot better than Al Pacino here. At least the rest of this movie is a huge step up from that disastrous sequel....
It's still a long way from the first in quality, and once again it all feels like they did this to have fun rather than to entertain. It's all just an excuse to hang out in Vegas again, and for me it's largely forgettable in the grand scheme of things. Heck, I almost missed Julia Roberts. That's just sad.
The heist isn't as much a heist as a rather dull collection of smaller cheats, the sickbed side does…
My favourite film out of the Ocean's trilogy, and I think that's because the cast are having so much fun together at this point.
Earlier about Ocean's 12 i wrote that the franchise be the creater of a good yuse of flashbacks, but over yused it in Ocean's 12. This third part it happend only once. The music don't over yused but more like part 1. The actors in Ocean's 12 be on the edge of corness, what made it a movie for the actors them self. Also this isn't in this third movie.
Is it the return to America insteed to be relax in Europe and it let think about the first movie movie feel. Sjure. It look like atleast this time there be more on there place. I am sjure this count for Matt Damon his chacter. The ambitation in his…
I really, really enjoyed Al Pacino's character this time around more so than the other two times I had seen this. I really like this and Eleven, but Twelve is total meh.
The Third and final chapter of the Ocean's trilogy and personally I feel it is the best.
Once more the boys plan a elaborate heist, this time not because of the money but out of revenge. Smooth as usual, this version remained fresh and entertaining.
The final film of the Ocean trilogy and another solid one. I enjoyed myself. It's better then the second film but the best is still the first one. (I won't say original because I just found out there is a 60's one with Frank Sinatra).
This one is a revenge heist and it has Al Pacino!!
Pacino gives this life. 2nd best of the trilogy.
