    Ocean's Eight

    ★★★

    "A Him gets noticed. A Her gets ignored. And for once, we’d like to be ignored."

    Steven Soderbergh never wanted to return to the helm for the Ocean’s franchise, but he was more than happy to get behind any future films, so when Warner Bros. said they wanted to return to the franchise with an all-woman cast in a spin-off, he signed on board as producer.

    ★★★½

    "There’s a code amongst guys that shook Sinatra’s hand!"

    Even though Ocean’s Twelve was financially successful, it was largely disliked by audiences who saw it as a misfire. When the studio decided to make a follow-up, they returned the story to Vegas where the first film took place and made a film that largely feels like a return to form. But that doesn’t mean the film isn’t without its problems. Join us as we continue our Ocean’s series with Steven…
