Ocean’s Thirteen

Starring: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Al Pacino

You know, can they keep coming up with these movies forever?  I mean…the first one was a remake, and well… I thought ‘big deal’.  It was good, but it was a re-make of a previously good film.  However, when the second one came out, I thought…well…that’s pretty cool..they were able to really capture the spirit of the first, and the intelligent situations/comedic lines of the first, and yet make a totally new movie.  Good for them!  I didn’t think it was something they could repeat again… and then here again, another winner!  This time, you even have Al Pacino, and Ellen Barkin in it!  Reminiscent to I think ‘Sea of Love’, but I could be mistaken.  I suppose I should fact-check this, but since I’m really not getting paid, screw it.  These films are the ‘Cannonball Run’ for the intellectual movie goers of the new millenium.  I love them.  I really hope they continue to crank these out.  It looks like they genuinely have fun making them, and that’s important, as it bleeds through into the acting.  I will say….it was a bit.. just a bit weaker than the previous two…. damn, I hate admitting that, as it means the probable beginning of the end… but it’s true… just a bit weaker…. I give this one three and a half out of five stars… the other two were four… :)  This one is totally ok for kids, though they may not understand much of what’s going on, and may complain.
