Ocean’s Eight [AKA Ocean’s 8] (2018, dir. Gary Ross)

A just-released thief puts together a jewel heist. Slick comedy-thriller with a few nods to the Clooney/Pitt/Soderbergh movies. Fun while it’s on, and everyone seems to be having a fine old time.

Bird Box (2018, dir. Suzanne Bier)

After an apocalyptic event, a woman battles to get her two children to safety. Initially interesting though ultimately very straightforward survival yarn with some good supporting performances.

And here’s Xussia’s review.

 

Crash (2004, dir. Paul Haggis)

A dozen people’s lives are linked by a chain of events. Impressively-structured and at times well acted, Crash is nevertheless simplistic and moralising, reducing difficult subject matter to trite obviousness. Best picture¬†winner 2005.
