Just to take a break from our draft-discussing, pumpkin killing, schizophrenic baiting fare, here’s the new trailer for Ocean’s 12
I’m desperately wanting to see this film. I hold that Ocean’s 11 is a near perfect film and one of the best heist films made in a decade. It reminds us there was a time when a star-studded cast was a good thing. It has effortless cool and spot-perfect performances all around. It’s also the greatest ‘gotcha’ in recent memory. Heist films garner their tension by laying out the plan and having things go wrong during the job. Ocean’s 11 doesn’t tell you the plan at all, so it’s not until the end of the film that you realize everything worked exactly as it was planned to. What a brilliant way to pull tension and still hold up your characters as unflappable masters of their larcenous craft. And yes, I’ll admit it…I go totally girly for Clooney, Pitt, and Damon on screen together. I so miss the days of effortlessly cool actors.
