just plain, damn cool

Just finished re-watching Ocean's Eleven, the 2001 version, not the original, because Anton hadn't seen it since it first came out and wanted to rewatch it before we go to see Twelve tomorrow. I didn't complain, because to be honest, it's one of those movies I can pretty much watch all the time.

It's not a great movie. But it is damn cool. In fact, it might be one of the "coolest" movies ever. I just get a big grin from watching them pull off the heist, and it makes me want to be a theif. Seriously, my mind works very dangerously that way. After watching movies like that I always look at things differently for a few days, sizing things up, listening more, thinking to myself "I'm smart enough. I really think I could pull something like that off." I know. I know. Cocky.

Oh, and George Clooney is just damn cool too. I want to be like him.

Anyway, I'm off to go work on finishing a piece for my art portfolio which has to go in tomorrow for grading. It's almost done, just doing a finishing bit of ink wash on it. It's actually turning out better than I thought it would. I'm really enjoying my art class. I've always liked drawing anyway, so it's great to get 6 credits for it.

Thinking about all the guys in Ocean's 11 i immediately go to Bernie Mac. That guy is really turning into a movie stealer. He just killed me in Bad Santa.

I totally, agree. Bernie Mac is great.

I've seen Ocean's Eleven a ridiculous amount of times, and every time I see it, I see small holes in the heist, not in its execution but in their getaway. And I kept thinking, "Terry Benedict is going to figure that out eventually." So I am super pumped for Ocean's Twelve because from what I've heard, they deal with the fall-out from the casinos.
