Plot:

Debbie Ocean gathers an all-female crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala.

Review:

I’m a fan of the Ocean’s movies, and all the women in this movie, so I was really excited when it came out. After finally getting to see it I’m very happy with how it turned out.

Sandra Bullock is finally out of prison and she has learned all the wrong lessons. Or maybe the right ones, depending on who you are. She knows exactly what she needs to do to pull off the perfect jewel heist and maybe get some revenge in the process.

In true Ocean’s movie style, everyone is beautiful, the setting it ostentatious, and there’s a twist at the end. I loved it, more please.

I would have loved a bit more background on the characters. They were all so interesting. Sadly, I’m not sure if we’re going to get a sequel, which is a huge bummer. Seriously, Hollywood why would you not want to put all these women in another movie together?

4/5

Plot:

Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to help the Mad Hatter.

Review:

If you liked the first movie, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t like this one. Apparently, though, most people didn’t like this movie.

The story wasn’t as strong, but the characters were there and I liked seeing what Alice was getting into. It wasn’t overly realistic for a woman to be captain of a ship at her time, but nothing in the movie is overly realistic.

The score was great and one of the reasons I like these two movies.

Nothing really remarkable or bad about the movie.

3/5
