I’ve seen all of the Ocean’s films and they are fantastic heist films. So when it was announced that there was going to be another Oceans film but this time with an all-female cast I was definitely a little skeptical but excited at the same time. Then the star-studded cast was announced and I got totally excited. This movie has some of my favorite actresses in Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and Sandra Bullock and while I’m not exactly familiar with everyone else except for Mindy Kaling and Rihanna I was still just as excited to see these actors bring a new era to the Oceans series.
One of my favorite things about the Oceans films is the cinematography and the music. Director Steven Soderbergh had a unique eye that made those previous three movies so cool to watch. And then composer, David Holmes, brought a jazzy feel to the films that was utterly perfect. They, to me, were the heart and soul of the series and the reason why they were so enjoyable.
Ocean’s 8 doesn’t have this director and composer which is a slight bummer. So can this new director in Gary Ross and composer in Daniel Pemberton retain that classic Oceans style while providing something fresh and new? I honestly hope so.
All in all, I’m counting down the days until I’ll be able to see it and I hope it’s just as great as it looks. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
