Review: Ocean’s Eight

As someone who thought the previous Ocean’s film were nice popcorn movies, when I heard they were making a new one with an all female cast, I was interested.

Her stunning appearance in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and her amazing acting have endeared her to me. She’s made it to my list of celebrities I consider to be good at their work.
