“Movie Reviews” by Megan Amram

This movie was OK, but it was no 300. Seriously, have you seen 300? That movie had such cool special effects and action scenes. I’m a very masculine guy, but I’m not afraid to admit that some of the love scenes in 300 made me cry, and also some of the action scenes (because they were so awesome/colorful). Gone With the Wind should have been more like that.

I like where this movie was going with having a number in its title. The “11”, however, referred to the eleven con men and not how many Spartans were killed during the duration of the film, which took me right out of the movie. They should have called it “Ocean’s 0”, due to the fact that zero Spartans were killed during the duration of the film.

Great movie. On a scale of one to a thousand, I would give this movie a 300. Not the number three hundred, but the movie 300, which would be the equivalent of 1000. 300 is really good!

This was a so-so movie about the emotional turmoil between a woman and her mother. I guess you could say, though, that their troubled relationship was like Sparta and the daughter’s cancer was like the Persian King Xerxes, and that their ambivalent yet very much profound feelings towards one another were like when all the Spartans died at the Battle of Thermopylae. In that way it was a pretty good movie.

This is the best movie I have seen in a long, long time. The dialogue is intelligent, the filmmaking groundbreaking, and the acting flawless. It might just be my favorite movie. No, wait, I forgot 300. 300 is my favorite movie.
