'1000 Films to Change your Life' is a book with excerpts from many highly regarded critics, actors, directors and writers,…
Twelve is the new eleven.
Danny Ocean reunites with his old flame and the rest of his merry band of thieves in a caper concerning three huge heists in Rome, Paris and Amsterdam. But Europol agent Isabel Lahiri is hot on their heels.
So this reminded me of that fat guy. You know, the one that orders the super size meals at McDonald's? And then asks for diet Coke?
A prime example of self-indulgence and delusional behaviour.
And after ordering he sits down somewhere perfectly content in his bubble of self induced bliss, clearly thinking he's having the time of his life.
And all we see is a fat guy with a smile on his face, wondering what the hell he's so happy about.

Yesterday evening I had a great time watching the first instalment in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean trilogy, prompting me to have a go at its sequel today and reserving enough time to watch the series’ final entry tomorrow (so look out for another heist-movie review on tuesday). When I look at the IMDB-page of ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ I notice that it’s regarded as the least acclaimed and also the film the longest runtime (by a small margin) of the three. Indeed, when I then also read through the synopsis - “Danny Ocean reunites with his old flame and the rest of his merry band of thieves in a caper concerning three huge heists in Rome, Paris and Amsterdam, but Europol agent Isabel…
Linus Caldwell: "What did I say?"
Danny Ocean: "You called his niece a whore."
Rusty Ryan: "A very cheap one."
Danny Ocean: "She's seven."
Ocean's Twelve is a very underrated sequel in my opinion. Its not nearly as good as the first one, but its a very good movie. It has the same great cast from the original, witty dialogue, great music, and a fun story that's full of surprises. Its no cinematic masterpiece nor is it one of the greatest sequels ever made. Its just a very entertaining film. People shouldn't be so harsh on it. 8/10
Just as fun as the first film, even if it gets a bit ludicrous at times. The way I see it, this is a sequel, it is supposed to be a bit ludicrous.
Stylistically (the European setting switch is exquisitely shot) and humorously superior than its predecessor, the soundtrack is tremendous and Soderbergh mostly succeeds in juggling around with his convoluted script and mammoth cast... but the suavity factor, which was the major draw of Ocean's Eleven, is just not the same, and the plot twists/contrivances henceforth aren't as fun or forgiving. Some self-aware ''sequel'' moments were cute (like Damon requesting to play a more ''central role'' this time), but, in what must be one of the worst things I've encountered in cinema, it just totally jumped the shark when Julia Roberts started playing Julia Roberts (literally).
I know this is the awkward middle child of this franchise but it is so funny and so beautifully constructed that I can't help but enjoy it immensly.
Stylish and self-aware humor, yet a bit too clever for its own good.
Just watch Brad Pitt eat shit. It's amazing.
Gets better every time you watch it.
My favourite of the Ocean's Trilogy. Catherine Zeta-Jones is a great addition to the cast.
Better then 13, not as good as 11
The most underrated and also still-worst of the Ocean's films.
i got distracted halfway through and started to stop paying attention :/
I’ve liked the whole Ocean’s series. I saw this one in the theatre so long ago that I thought it was time to give it a re-watch. Before I start the viewing, what do I remember from the first time I saw this? Well, not that much except that it had the most incredible A-list cast. OK, let’s begin…
This starts out slow. For about the first 20 minutes, I was thinkin’, “Wow, this is nowhere near as good as I thought.” However, it gets going eventually and once it does it’s a lot of silly genre fun. A big part of the fun is the music. This flick's got great tunes throughout. Yet, one thing that isn’t all that…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
The posters in this list, that's what. Rules: black and white photo, with the title in red. Suggestions?
