Ocean’s Eight (2018)

From the depths of my drafts comes a movie review I wrote many months ago.

There was an article about Ocean’s Eight I stumbled on, which gave me a moment of thought. It stated that the lack of conflict, which some critics see as a negative about the film, actually highlights the importance of a female led film.

After I had time to digest this feeling of nothingness, I decided that I was still going to review Hotel Artemis. Because if I had suffered through a really bad movie, I might as well trash it on my blog.
