    Ocean's Thirteen

    ★★★★

    By far the most overlooked chapter in the Oceans Trilogy which is a damn shame because it's pretty great. These are all things that occur in the film.

    1. George Clooney and Brad Pitt shed a tear or two while watching a segment of Oprah while also planning part of their heist. Brilliant.

Life just seems to be a tad bit more confusing after this one.

    Thanks,

    Enter the Void

    I think the fact that Enter the Void exists is a win for cinema. It pushes the boundaries with perspective and visual triggers. It's a film that I walk away from very impressed. But, I just didn't enjoy the film very much. Maybe it's the repeated sections of the film that make it a little too much for me. It also seems as if Noe needs to push boundaries (violence, sexual, etc.) that don't need to be for a successful…
