Ocean's Twelve

Ocean's Twelve (2004)

In this sequel to the 2001 hit Ocean's Eleven, Danny Ocean
(George Clooney) reunites with his old flame (Julia Roberts) and the rest of his
merry band of thieves and con men (Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Casey Affleck and Don
Cheadle, among others). This time, the caper concerns three huge heists in Rome,
Paris and Amsterdam. Catherine Zeta-Jones co-stars, and Andy Garcia returns as
casino owner Terry Benedict. Steven Soderbergh reprises as
My Two Cents: Europe just ain't as cool as Vegas, even if the characters are just as smooth.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 7/10


Matt's Two Cents: Not as good as original, but makes you laugh and entertains even if it won't win any awards.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It

Porter's Two Cents: Never should have been made. There are millions of good books out there, why force this? Well the millions bucks. Still.

Ocean's Eleven (2001)

Less than 24 hours into his parole from a New Jersey penitentiary, wry, charismatic thief Danny Ocean (George Clooney) is already rolling out his next plan: In one night, Danny's hand-picked crew of specialists will attempt to steal over $150 million from three Las Vegas casinos. To score the cash, however, Danny will have to risk his life and his chances of reconciling with ex-wife Tess (Julia Roberts). A remake of the 1960 Rat Pack heist flick.
My Two Cents: A cool cast in an even cooler town... Best movie ever about Vegas.

NetFlix Rank: Loved It
IMDB Rank: 9/10
