Oceans 8

“The plan is priceless.”  Because it wasn’t for you…

Let’s be honest, Hollywood does not often get reboots right. When it was announced the successful “Oceans 11” franchise was going to be rebooted, the skepticism that this film would bring originality and freshness flooded my brain.  I was wrong. 

From the empowering soundtrack, the perfect plan against the backdrop of the highly photographed and exclusive annual MET Gala, and revenge in the sweetest way. It was written to appeal to women in a relatable way with a diverse cast that crossed artistic genres. The film showed how women do things with such ease…even staging the world’s greatest jewelry heist.  This film was as priceless as the Cartier diamonds.  An exciting, empowering, and engaging movie that every woman should grab their girlfriends and go see. We know you can only take so much of summer swimming or baseball practice.

This is what a summer blockbuster is about! Ladies, we have one for us!

From the desk of Dr. Dion Metzger: 

When I first heard there was a female reboot of Ocean’s Eleven, I thought it would be trash and actually tarnish the “Ocean” legacy. Harsh? Yeh, I know. It’s likely my PTSD from the all female cast flop of my beloved “Ghostbusters” in 2016. “Oceans 8” shocked me. It was a great film. I was entertained and the cast was the perfect ensemble. “Constance” was my favorite and the fact that her name is Awkwafina in real life makes her character even more endearing. I could have done without Rihanna’s stereotypical gift shop dreads cap (thank God she didn’t say “yeh mon”). Also, did Mindy Kaling have work done? Her face looks different. But anyways, the film is worth the theater trip. Great job, ladies!

P.S. I would like all items of Cate Blanchett’s character’s wardrobe (including the accessories). Please and thanks.
