Movie tip: "Ocean's 8"

Movie tip

Ocean’s 8

It feels as though everyone in this caper flick were feeling logy when they filmed it. Perhaps director Gary Ross was going for a cool vibe, but what he produced instead was a tepid movie. Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are sapped of their usual vibrancy as con women spearheading the theft of a priceless necklace during the Met Gala. Three actors — Anne Hathaway as a vain actress, Helena Bonham Carter as a kooky designer, and James Corden as a Columbo-like investigator — roused me from my torpor with their witty, energetic performances. I’m thankful for small favors.
