Review

Ocean's Eleven!
An entertaining and fun movie!
Fast-paced and witty.
Clever but not Sherlock's level of smart.
Even without the star power from George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Julia Roberts, I know I would have enjoyed it either way.

 
Now, a rant about the Ocean's Twelve:
Ocean's Twelve is a joke. A complete joke. What a horrible sequel. Sloppy plot. Halfhearted performances. Lack of significant roles. Boring new characters just to give the movie some "sex appeal." I hate it.
The reality: the movie's popularity was due to the celebrity faces that made an appearance.
Ocean's Twelve is more of a lame comedy than a thriller. It was funny, but not that funny, especially the second half. The writers and actors were trying way too hard.

This was me most of the time:


And seriously, who the fuck thought it would be funny and smart to have Julia Roberts play as herself in the movie? Seriously? Why am I not surprised Hollywood ran out of ideas?

The writers:
"Hey, you know what we should do to cover up how stupid the sequel is and how lazy we are? Let's write Julia Roberts into this! Oh, and let's add Bruce Willis."
*writes shit*

"Is this acceptable, audience?"

The audience:


Ocean's Twelve is a poor excuse for a sequel. For me, it was only worth watching because Matt Damon's character is downright adorable.
I dread Ocean's Thirteen. I don't even have the heart to watch it. You people are killing me.

Ocean's Eleven earns four stars.
Ocean's Twelve gets one star for trying.
