Seen Oceans 13? June 9, 2007

I’d rather be eaten alive.

In an earlier blog rant, I mentioned how much I didn’t care for this particular movie franchise. Maybe some of you more daring souls had the intrepidness to go see it yourself last night or this afternoon. Tell me about it! Was it as horrible as a real-life Toronto ZombieWalk 2006?[see pic below]

toronto zombie walk 06 Reviews are mixed, with most claiming the movie’s director has recaptured the excitement of Oceans 11 but suffers from the same over-the-top convoluted twisting as Oceans 12:

“The concept of finding new and ingenious ways for these guys to rip people off is starting to wear thin which is proved by the fact that they use a giant drill that is made for making tunnels to simulate an earthquake…there are only two of these drills in the world. Ocean has one and it breaks, so they buy the second one. Now, wouldn’t you think that purchasing a machine like that for less than legal use would raise some alarms somewhere?courtesy Mitch of Matchflick.com

Ok, I’m done. Still interested in hearing what any of you think though.

Thank you for the kind words Brandon!

Did you know we were the first podcasters to use the musical term “Meet & Greet”? It came from our experience in working in Chicago’s live music scene. Until April of 2006, all podcasters (and video-casters) would call their live events “Meet-ups” or “Listener Party.”

Google Dawn and Drew if you don’t believe me.

Even William Sledd calls his live events “Meet & Greets.”

I remember trying to save up for a trip out to Chicago for one of the last FoF Meet & Greets at the Apple Store in Chicago. Air travel is expensive! Thanks for visiting and commenting!

I have a short list of Steven Soderbergh’s best movies, in no order:

The Limey
Solaris
Out of Sight
Kafka
Traffic
Schizopolis
Oceans 13 (?) I’ll wait until I see it, but with a feel good movie without Julia Roberts might be a score for Soderbergh.

OMG, I forgot that Traffic was Soderbergh! Benicio Del Toro was so good in that. Thanks for commenting.
