The Dashing Dozen

still on the subject about movies, i just wanted to give my 2-cents worth on Ocean's Twelve. what can i say? Steven Soderbergh just knows how to make a movie. a stylish one at that, too. i rarely do movie reviews, but this one isn't much a review anyway. it's more of how i love 'visually appetising' movies. for me...non-conventional film-making and visuals just kicks ass. that's why i love Soderbergh, Guy Ritchie and David Fincher movies...just to name a few. their style speaks of their own, and it's great to see it unvealed on screen. i think the highlight of Soderbergh's career is 'Traffic', which i really loved the way he played with different color settings using camera lenses to differentiate the Mexican and American side to the story.
Ocean's Twelve certainly doesn't dissapoint. the story is by far, no way better than its predecessor, Ocean's Eleven. but the way the story is told just keeps me begging for more.
the plot is simple enough, with a bit too many twists for my liking though. but if u wanna talk about the movie, u can't help but notice the long list of A-list celebrities on show here. Pitt, Clooney, Garcia, Damon, Don Cheadle (always on my A-list) and not to mention the used-to-be-my-fantasy Julia Roberts plus the hot Zeta-Jones. just typing out the list makes me drool.
maybe the movie lacks in story, but it sure doesn't dissapoint in style. i mean..u could have been forgiven for this being a GQ TV special or something. and we all know Pitt looks mean in anything he wears. (even the stupid, pink bathrobe in Fight Club). and how men all over the world really prays for a detective like Zeta-Jones to nab 'em into the slammer. yummy....
i guess all these big movie stars get paid well coz they really do the business. not all of them, though. but the ones in Ocean's Twelve just oozes with on-screen presence. the way they talk, the way they walk, how they move, eat and sleep. there's only one word to describe it: cool.
add to that, Soderbergh's style and eye for class, u get one hell of a slick ride. so to hell with the storyline, see it for coolness's sake. coz they don't get any cooler than these 12.
