Movie Review of Ocean's Thirteen (2007) [PG-13] 113 minutes -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $11.75
Review-lite: Directed by Steven Soderbergh who has helmed all three Ocean's films, Thirteen returns to its roots in Las Vegas. Danny Ocean (George Clooney) is back with revenge on his mind with his usual suspects and a new target villain, Willie Banks (Al Pacino). Banks as swindled mentor Reuben Tiskoff (Elliot Gould), and only Ocean's Thirteen can rescue him from his downward spiral. While the writing team of Brian Koppelman and David Levien accomplished something great, a superior film to Ocean's Twelve—wait, that was a terrible film—in creating this script, they unfortunately load the story with too much setup time and not enough execution time. The result is a film long on inside jokes but short on intrigue. Al Pacino is great in his best role in a long, long time; and Ellen Barkin turns up as his assistant. The result is good performances in a good but not great film.(click for full details and complete review)

Shrek the Third (2007) [PG] -- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $12.25
Review-lite: Don't ignite the swamp gas just yet, Shrek is back in Shrek the Third. This time around, he's inherited the throne from the croaking frog king, a gift he'd rather not accept. So, he voyages off with Donkey and Puss 'n Boots to find Arthur to relieve him of his duty. Back in Far, Far Away, however, Prince Charming has other plans for the kingdom. Great voice cast, hilarious jokes, and a fun story, made this the best of the Shrek films. Hats off to Justin Timberlake for joining this cast and fitting in. The writers have delivered a funny film with a great moral story. Mike Meyers, Eddie Murphy, and Cameron Diaz have done it again with great vocal performances. The film is laugh out loud funny most of the time. (click for full details and complete review)
