I agree with R5. I don't remember if I saw the film (don't remember which one) from start to finish but I just remember hating Brad Pitt and George Clooney. It's like they weren't even trying, bad acting (mostly with Pitt), bad writing, lazy lazy lazy. Also one of the few films where I didn't like Matt Damon.
|by Anonymous||reply 6||01/30/2017|
The first Ocean's film is great fun. The second feels as R5 described. The third is inoffensive, but doesn't capture the magic of the first. I have no strong opinions on Ocean's Eight, but the cast is strong.

Are they refugees from a plastic surgery clinic? This could be either great or awful. This is the movie where all of the cast members hate Cate Blanchett and her marriage fell apart during filming.

Ocean's 11 - Original has not stood the test of time. Ocean's Eleven - Not bad. Updated, fast-paced. Ocean's Twelve - Julia Roberts - how can you make Europe seem do dark and dreary - horrible! Ocean's Thirteen - good comeback from Twelve disaster, but labored scenes with Damon and Barkin, and the Mexican factory strike.

"Every con has its pros"
"Pro" is short for prostitute. I wonder if that was intentional? Seems odd, otherwise. Let's face it, the selling point for this film isn't that it's an all female heist movie. That's been done before. The selling point is that it's an all male franchise that's been redone with women. It's a shame they couldn't envisage an all female franchise without having to tack it onto that godawful Clooney/Pitt/Damon series. It smacks of tokenism.
I'm still looking forward to it, though. I love Cate Blanchett.

Ethan Alter: Had a cracking good time with #Oceans8; zippy pacing, great set-pieces and NYC photography and top-notch cast. Here's to Rachel Bloom and/or Frances McDormand joining the team for Ocean's 9.
Michael Blackmon: Anne Hathaway is fucking fantastic in #Oceans8.
Caroline Framke: The biggest and best heist in Ocean’s 8 is Anne Hathaway stealing the entire movie!!!
Phillip Henry: What a comeback for Anne Hathaway in my heart. She was so good. It was so fun!
Tomris Laffly: I don't really need superheroes, or lots of fancy special effects, Hollywood. Just give me a line-up of fabulous female actors in high fashion, PERFECT smoky-eyes & layers of statement necklaces, and I'll be all set. Yes, #Oceans8 is my kind of fun, glossy entertainment!
Sam Lansky: Oceans 8 is so good and fun and I hope it inspires a generation of young women to grow up and scam men for fun or vengeance
Richard Lawson: OCEAN’s 8 is funnnn
Dave Quinn: #Oceans8 is so good, it’ll make you like Anne Hathaway again (I never stopped but seriously - she’s doing GREAT work in it).
Sydney Scott: Anne Hathaway was amazing in every scene of #oceans8. THAT bitch, first of her name, queen of Genovia.
Rachel Simon: OCEAN’S 8 is very funny and good and features the best comedic Anne Hathaway performance in years.
Nigel M. Smith: Expected #Oceans8 to be a blast. Didn’t expect for Anne Hathaway to be its MVP. All the ladies are stellar but she steals every scene she’s in. She’s a hammy riot.
Adam B. Vary: Since we're all tweeting about #Oceans8 now, it's that rare movie that I quite thoroughly enjoyed and yet also wanted to be so much better.
Gwynne Watkins: Ocean's 8 is exactly the movie I wanted it to be: a breezy heist film full of banter, capital-f Fashion, and elaborate nesting-doll con jobs. I'd watch one of these every summer.

Surprised there’s not more love/discussion of this flick! Saw it last night with friends - and we all had a ball!
There were flaws sure. Some plot holes bigger than Swiss cheese! And some of the gals seemed criminally underused at times. But overall - huge amounts of fun and energy - and it looked great!
It seems to have done well so far at the box office - in spite of some mean spirited reviews. And there’s lotsa kudos for Anne (with an E!) Hathaway for ‘stealing the show’. And while I don’t quite think she did that - she comes pretty close!
So yeah - why aren’t there more comments from you bitches? There was more going on here in the lead-up to the release than now the film is actually out!
I have lotsa nitpicks and curious to see if otners have them too - but like I said - overall - fabulous!
One really mean spirited thing from me tho: I love Sandra Bullock. She has a genuine warmth and likeability onscreen that’s hard to resist. BUT there’s an opening scene and one near the end - where whoever styled her should be shot. Especially the opening one! With all the surgery she’s had, and the makeup and the way her hair was done - the friend sitting next to me - a woman who is also a huge Bullock fan - gasped ‘god! She looks like Michael Jackson!’ - and she really did. It was disturbing. Really harsh lighting/makeup/photography. Someone should have done something surely?
Anyway - so some more thoughts and reviews from DL kindred spirits please!

Dunno R104 - but thought it was great to see someone who wasn’t all skin and bone. Rhianna looked pretty voluptuous too! Just wish they were given more to do!
R103 - thought he twist was kinda bolted on. But whatever. It was fine. Tho woulda been nice if the little acrobat had also been a woman - in keeping with the theme of it all...?
I also felt like lotsa little character building scenes might have been sacrificed to keep the pacing up? I thought the pacing was great though - could quite happily have used the odd character-building scene and it wouldn’t have slowed proceedings down in the least. Odd though - I guess it’s all in the eye of the beholder! I thought it moved along at a fair clip - yet read a review that said it plodded. I was like - wtf? Did you see the same film as me?

R107 - Corden was my least favorite part I think. I just was put out of the story because he’s so ubiquitous now as Corden the Tonight Show Host - and he isn’t a good enough actor to overcome that. He was JAMES CORDEN - and wtf was he doing in this story?

Zero suspense or tension or humor. 'Nominal character development' is generous. You learn almost nothing about any of the characters. And I'm not an SJW but it stood out how the minority members of the 8 got the least screen time and character development. Kaling disappeared for a good chunk of the movie and I forgot she was in it. Did they have to film it without all the actresses there at the same time? There was surprisingly minimal interaction between them all and the whole production just felt very detached. Never got a sense they were a team. Could have been a fun movie but the script and execution sucked.
