There have been many classic heist films in the history of cinema. Heat, The Bank Job, Baby Driver, Ocean’s 11 and 12 (fun little fact, I viewed Ocean’s 12 at my bachelor party oh so many years ago), and Bonnie And Clyde to name a few.
Heist films are all about a team pulling off an impossible job. They rob a bank, steal a bunch of cars, or knock over a casino. You get to experience the thoughts and actions of a team as they go for the score of a lifetime.
Ocean’s 8 continues in this vein.
Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) is finally released from prison after five years, eight months, and 12 days for her part in a previous Ocean robbery. Upon her release, she begins to implement a scheme she’s been devising for all those years behind bars. Read more...
Disney adapts Madeleine L’Engle’s story A Wrinkle In Time for the big screen. Starring Storm Reid as Meg Murry, Deric McCabe as the brainiac, adopted son Charles Wallace Murry, and Levi Miller as Calvin O’Keefe, A Wrinkle In Time tells the story of Meg after her father, Dr. Alex Murry (Chris Pine), has been missing for 4 years.
Soon, three strange women appear in the lives of the Murry family. You’re first introduced to Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon). Next, you see Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling). Last, but not least, is Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).
These three women bring Charles Wallace, Meg, and Meg’s friend Calvin on an adventure across the galaxy. One they never thought they’d go on.
