Pick-D-Flick Rating: 2.5 on 5

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

Overall Review:
Ocean’s Eight is a low-tier Ocean’s movie directed by Gary Ross. It isn’t reboot of the brand name, but a semi-sequel to the Soderbergh pictures. Film is a spin-off of the once-popular Ocean’s trilogy, a series of movies starring men in suits robbing other men in suits (for fun and vendetta). Plot and Script of the film is very predictable. It is a swapping casino heists for a swanky Met Gala robbery as Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) sister of the now deceased Danny Ocean puts an elaborate plan into action...

Overall Review:
14 years after the original, Brad Bird’s digitally animated superhero franchise ‘Incredibles 2’ revolves around the Parr family once again. Bird wastes no time getting into the meat of this story, cleverly picking up where the last film ended, with an attack by the villain the Underminer. The sequel offers a playful and clever reversal, asking audiences to reconsider traditional male and female roles. Hence, the story is little complex and forgetful...
