I don't consider the male-centric remake of the male-centric original particularly good, but it's still a hell of a lot cooler than this. Ocean's 8 is just mainly boring and lacks oomph and an interesting point of view. Without them, it's not really worth sitting on your ass for nearly two hours.
Mar'19 Love the cast - always an honor to see Cate Blanchett and Helena Carter - wish Soderbergh directed this though - needed better filmmaking, tbh this is as poor as filmmaking gets IMO. Only gets points for Blanchett's meticulous work - every posture, every look masterfully executed. Seems like B-roll footage with the ladies :(
Does Sandra Bullock even act anymore? Cate Blanchett's character was pointless, beside giving off BDE. An ego piece for the two of them. The rest of the cast was played with but given no real dues. It would be good if it were interesting, but it never boils past the fact that NOW ALL WOMEN are doing a caper movie. No ingenuity, stunted direction and narrative. I couldn't help but feel bad for George Clooney's face.
Surprisingly,not as bad as I thought,still enjoyable in some percentage,and a not too-Helena Bonham Carter Helena Bonham Carter was fun. The actors got quite good chemistry, something an all-star studded castline rare to have,but still it's annoying how the movie trying hard to be so "female", the script was basically a shot-to-shot remake,with the last 30 minutes was just painful,almost all was James Corden's fault.
Great cast that deserved a better script than this. Everyone has good chemistry here but the whole thing winds up to be...meh. Even the heist itself is vanilla. Hopefully if there is a sequel in the works they realize the potential magic that lies here and come up with a better story for these ladies. Wanted to love it, but its just so-so. 2.5 stars
it really got me hooked si merita mult mai mult de 2,6 /// literally dont know what i liked more? riri being a stoner hacker girl? the POOPER SCOOPER? the amazing soundtrack (va mai amintiti coae de BOSSY?)?? all them crazy celeb cameos? i fell in luv with the overall O P U L E N C E of the movie chiar a fost super blana
