Richard Roeper Reviews: “Ocean’s 8,” “Hereditary,” “Hotel Artemis,” & Nicholas Cage’s latest
Richard Roeper joins Roe Conn & Anna Davlantes to preview the weekend’s movies – June 7th, 2018
This week’s movies:
“Ocean’s 8” — All-star female cast in a spinoff of the “Oceans 11” franchise. (Note: unlike the all-female “Ghostbusters,” this is NOT a reboot. Sandra Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, the younger sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean. The events in this film take place after the events of “Ocean’s 13.”)
“Hotel Artemis” – Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, Dave Bautista, Jeff Goldblum star in a violent thriller set in 2028 Los Angeles, where the “Hotel Artemis” is actually a secret hospital for seriously wounded criminals in need of emergency care.
“Hereditary” — Nearly two decades after Toni Collette was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for playing the mother of a deeply troubled child in “The Sixth Sense,” there’s talk of a Best Actress nomination for her performance as the mother of TWO deeply troubled kids in this extremely disturbing (and truly brilliant) film.
“211” — Nicolas Cage, who apparently has a patriotic (or contractual) duty to appear in one movie every six weeks or so, plays the obligatory ‘cop-who-just-filed-his-retirement-papers’ who goes out on one last ‘routine’ shift–which turns into a terrorist/hostage/bank heist bloodbath!
