The advent of livestreaming, torrents, and the wonderful file-sharing website that was MegaUpload let me indulge in movies I never had the chance to see when they were in cinemas. I love watching movie series/trilogies, and it’s been only lately that I had the chance to see Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Trilogy, (entitled Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen consecutively.)
The movies, starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt, are definitely worth watching (even if it means not being able to do your homework, are read the assigned readings) because of the wit and the wonderful absence of violence in it, despite it being a Heist movie. In the last film (SPOILER ALERT), an enemy points a gun at Linus (played by Matt Damon) and he exclaims, “A gun, REALLY?!” The gun turns out to be unloaded.
The movies are very light without being shallow. I have to say that the writers were very successful in exploring Clooney’s and Pitt’s characters throughout the movie franchise. The heists have this secret charming quality in them, especially when it comes to the parts where they reveal how they actually did the stealing.
