Episode 116 – Ocean’s Eleven

Ocean's ElevenThis week, we are joined by Heather Rand-McKay to watch Ocean’s Eleven (2001)! But she isn’t our only special guest. Patricia Wick joins us in the movie expert chair! We do take some time to talk about the original Ocean’s 11 (1960) and do our best to discourage anyone who wishes to watch the movie because it is super boring. You might like it, though. We know a few people who do. Maybe that’s you. We watched this version because we like movies that are fun to watch. Go Las Vegas!

Next up, we are going to watch Jurassic Park!

Episode 57 – Moneyball

MoneyballWith this episode, we embark on a two episode exploration of baseball movies.  Moneyball stars Brad Pitt and it takes a look at the evolution of the way modern baseball teams are assembled.  Like most baseball movies, this movie isn’t about the game so much as it is about the people who make a living within the game.  This the second movie in a row that Melissa hasn’t seen.  If we can find about three more, that will probably encompass cover every movie she’s never seen!

Our next movie is another movie Melissa hasn’t seen!  We’ll be watching Bull Durham!
