Directed and co-written by Gary Ross, Oceans 8 is an all-female leading cast that stars Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean. Ocean gathers a crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala.
It looks as though Debbie is supposed to be a relation of Danny Ocean rather than a female Danny Ocean character, in a world where George Clooney’s Danny Ocean never existed. interesting.
I really want Ocean’s 8 to be good and my hopes are relatively high mainly because Cate Blanchett is in it. Such pressure on ‘queen Cate’.
Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathatway, Dakota Fanning, Samantha Cocozza and Olivia Munn also star.
I had no idea that what was missing from my life was another Alice in Wonderland movie. That was until I saw the rather beautiful new trailer for Alice Through The looking Glass…
I remember loving Alice In Wonderland (2010); so may this, at the very least be just as good as it’s predecessor. Especially since Tim Burton’s highly imaginative brain isn’t the one in the director’s chair this time.

My reason for watching the new version of Cinderella had very little to do with the romance. I watched the movie because of the cast, particularly one of my favourites, super Australian Actress, Cate Blanchett.
The well edited trailer with the perfect musical score also helped, but ultimately, I was most excited to see how Director Kenneth Branagh handled cinderella’s battle with her evil step mother and horrid step sisters.
The film is beautiful thanks to Branagh and his well chosen cast which includes Lily James in the title role, Helena Bonham as the Fairy Godmother and Richard Madden portraying Prince Charming.
Besides having good dialogue and being quite the visual spectacle, the movie had me reflecting on my own experience of courage and the gift of kindness, especially when it comes from the most unexpected place.
Watch to see a rightful win and of course there is the fairytale romance.
The following aren’t words that would ordinarily come out of my mouth, but lately, ‘I’ve been hankering for a Cinderella movie remake‘.
And now, with Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother, is there a better way to do it? I can hear everyone’s resounding ‘NO, of course not!‘ all at once and I like it.
Cinderella is simply one of the best fairy tales out there, if not the best. Not because of the famous romance, mind you. But rather thanks to the story of triumph over the unkind and cruel. Particularly when one triumphs without sacrificing one’s character and principles.
I’ve watched the trailer a very high number of times and the great music is a huge part of the reason:
