Watching The Ocean Go By

Danny Ocean, that is.

PKR and I have watched Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and Ocean's Thirteen over the past few days.

They are three fun movies about a group of thieves who pull off three different big jobs.

Ocean's Eleven is a remake of a 1960 version starring original "Rat Pack" members Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop.

The first movie has the 11 thieves planning to heist three big casinos in Las Vegas. Their leader is Danny Ocean, played by George Clooney.

In Ocean's Twelve the group head to Europe to pull off three different heists, so they can repay the money to the casino owner they stole from in the first movie.

Ocean's Thirteen finds the group back in Las Vegas, when one of their group is double-crossed by a casion owner, and the group wants revenge.

I enjoy the twists and turns of these movies, and the way they are able to pull off their plans. They also throw in some funny moments that are just goofy, and make you laugh. That is one thing I enjoy about George Clooney as an actor. He never seems to take himself too seriously.

They are rated PG-13, but the language is actually fairly mild throughout (especially since it is set in Vegas), and really not a whole lot of blatant sex scenes or violence. (Personally, I think those scenes can get a bit old after a while.)
Just a few good escapist movies to watch that are pretty entertaining.

Those are great movies, to be sure! What a fun ensemble cast, too. If you've ever seen them interview together, it is hilarious!

If you like Ocean, you would probably also enjoy The Italian Job. :)

Katrina--I have looked at The Italian Job, and seen trailers, and always thought it would be good. I'll have to check it out next time.

MT--I rarely go watch a film in the theater unless it is something I really want to see on the big screen. I usually just wait and rent or buy the DVD and watch it at home.

IEG--Yes, very relaxing.
