This is a 5 Star Movie!!

Ocean’s 8

Upon exiting prison, the estranged sister Debbie (Sandra Bullock) of the infamous conman Danny Ocean puts together a team for a brilliant heist that not only involves stealing some of the world’s most priceless jewels from the New York Met, but also allows Debbie to get revenge on an old boyfriend who caused her to end up in prison in the first place. The story unfolds from there…

“Ocean’s 8” is a nice change of pace from the usual norm on a comedy crime caper. There is an excellent cast, but the story is a bit weak in spots. It starts off great, but unfortunately fizzles during the last 30 minutes, but not enough that you shouldn’t see it.

This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!

The Intern

Director Nancy Meyer’s “The Intern” to be delightful and witty”

Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) is a retired business owner who decides to go back to work. He creates a video of himself and sends it off to a successful Fashion Design Website Company that is run by a young successful career woman (Anne Hathaway). Ben interviews along with many others, some around his age and some younger. Ben is one of four who land a job with the Fashion Design Website Company. He is assigned to work with the owner, but she wants him assigned to someone else. The story unfolds from there…

The story is a bit weak and there isn’t really a plot, but the movie is enlightening and entertaining. There are many good moments in the movie. How can you not like a movie that stars Robert De Niro. He is such a great actor!

This is a 3 1/2 Star Movie!
