Ocean's Eleven (2001)
One of the best heists movies ever
The Bellagio, the Mirage and the MGM Grand. These are the targets for the 2001 version of Oceans 11. This is not the 1960's version and should not be put on the same level as it. The change in technology has changed so much since the original 1960's Rat Pack movie that the 2001 version acts as a totally new film. The original was a great movie no denying that. The heist in the 1960's version was way ahead of its time. But a lot has changed in 41 years; in this age of computers it would have been impossible for the original heist to work without a Vegas camera watching you. Though the original had a certain style of class that this one didn't. Both versions were extremely fun to watch.
I rate this 9/10 and the original an 8/10.
TRIVIA: Angie Dickinson had a bit part in this movie playing herself. She was the Beatrice Ocean in the original Oceans 11 in 1960.
In the original 1960 version of Ocean's 11, Sammy Davis Jr. played a demolition man. In this version of Oceans 11, the 2001 version, Don Cheadle plays Sammy's role as the demolition man. In 1998 a T.V movie called `The Rat Pack' was made, Don Cheadle played as Sammy Davis Jr.
The Fighting 69th (1940)
Cagney a coward? never...
James Cagney shows he's not just a tough street thug. Cagney plays Jerry Plunkett a new draftee into the Fighting 69th that's all bark and no bite. His long time friend Pat O'Brien who starred in many of Cagney's films as a Reverend trying to help him out with his troubles accompanies Cagney in this film. Also in this film is Alan Hale Sr. well remembered for his movies with Errol Flynn. This is no Sergeant York but definitely a must see for Cagney Fans and War Buffs!
TRIVIA: Jeffrey Lynn who played Joyce Kilmer in the movie earned a Bronze Star in World War II just two years after making this film.
