As you may know, heist flicks are one of my favorite types of movies. I posted my Top 10 list a few months ago, and proceeded to watch (and write about) a few of the movies mentioned in the comments of that post. Logan Lucky, one of those new movies, would definitely be on an updated Top 10. I still need to watch Heat, though.
Needless to say, I was quite excited about seeing Ocean’s 8 this weekend, and it did not disappoint. It was snappy, clever, and funny. Here are my 3 favorite things about it (minor spoilers):
I would say that the weird thing about the movie is that the “8” share exceptionally little screentime as a group. I think they’re in maybe 3 very brief scenes together, and all in the same location, which makes me wonder if they simply filmed those scenes all during the same week and then broke up the rest of filming based on each actor’s schedule. That’s perfectly fine–I’m guessing most movies do that–though it would have been nice to see them all together for more than 2 minutes of screentime.
Overall, I’m very happy with how the movie turned out, and I hope there’s a sequel. What did you think of it?
