Worthy of mention: Oceans 12

Well its not all that mention worthy, but it is the only film I've had a chance to see in ages, plus
its kind of a link with the last post (reposted today cause It didn't register the first time round
for some reason).

And for a heist movie its pretty good. All star cast and it looks like they had good fun making it.
I was dubious about it when I heard about it first but its a pretty worthy sequel to the first movie.

Weakest link: Catherine Zeta Jones, every single movie I've seen her in she just looks so smug,
I don't think shes a great actor (I can't call them actresses any more are I?).

Coolest scene is by far the Night Fox , Capoeira-ing his way across the randomised laser beam
security grid. While fantastically cool (and David holmes soundtrack really helps) its just not believable , Capoeira does not make you psychic. Probably.

The banter between the '12' (that raises a point , who is the 12th, Julia Roberts? she was in the last one too!) is the best of the movie .. Eliot Gould advising brad pit on the Hotel business "You're micromanaging.. I been doing this my whole life, you gotta find people you can delegate to".

Theres a bunch of laughs too The "lost in translation" scene with Robbie Coltrane,
Or catherine zeta jones phone conversation with Eddie Izard(sp?).

Still I couldn't help but laugh every time Matt Damon opened his mouth, I kept thinking
of this Puppet counterpart in Team America "MATT DAMON!!". Its funny if you've seen it.
trust me.
