Movie Review: Oceans 12

I did another netflix free trial while the wife was out of town so I got a bunch of good movies that I haven't watched yet. Don't worry, with my handy new DVD burner I have back-ups of all of them so I can watch them later.

I talked the wife in to seeing Oceans 12 on Saturday night. It wasn't as good as Oceans 11, but it was still a good movie. I can't say too much, but for most of the movie you won't know what's going on. Then it has a nice happily ever after type ending. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one. I think it doesn't disappoint, but it's not the first movie so don't go in expecting to see the first one done over. I wouldn't imagine there would be a third one, but I think Matt Damon's character could probably have a spin-off of some sort. Either way, it's good. Definitely worth seeing on the big screen.

On DVD we've got The Alamo, Paycheck, Ned Kelly, and Miracle to name a few all courtesy of Netflix and Blockbuster. The Bourne Supremacy and Spider-man 2 I purchased at Best Buy - so I'm not all bad.


Ned Kelly made even my dad cry. It's that sad. And Miracle is AMAZING... made me cry... hot guys playing hockey when there is no NHL... yeah I bawled.

Waiting on the Alamo, haven't seen Spiderman but I am getting it for Christmas along with Bourne Supremacy which I LOVE!

As for Oceans 12... well it'wasn't 11. I thought it was too busy. They had this wonderful cast and didn't really utilize anyone but Damon, Zeta-Jones and Pitt. Although Casseil was great!! Love them French!

I didn't think Ned Kelly would be sad. Maybe I won't watch it.

Paycheck was surprisingly good. I loved Spiderman 2!

Then you haven't heard of the Kelly Gang... it does have a depressing ending. Consider yourself warned. It's still a good movie though....

I've heard of the Kelly Gang. We used to have fake Ned Kelly memorabilia hanging on the walls at Outback. He was an australian folk hero, and I know how they caught him. Somehow I thought the movie would be more like American Outlaws.

It's exactly like the folklore, and it ends exactly the way they say it does... nothing like American Outlaws... not trying to discourage... just warn.
