The movie I saw was Ocean's 12. I think my opinion was expressed pretty clearly here, along with the first comment, which is mine.

I would rather repeatedly run myself over with my car than see Ocean's 12. But my reason for that are completely illogical and gold infected. Anyway, Saw is a great movie for those of you who like horror movies and blood.

Hmmm. I suppose I didn't go in w/ super high expectations; but then I liked the first one just casually enough that I put it in my "May Purchase when I'm Ludicriously Rich and Don't Care to Mind my Money" stratum, and then just report that the movie's good.

I suppose I enjoy the humor that isn't reduced to one-liners and the token "comedy relief" character, who, though funny, is typically the one carrying that aspect of the movie. I like seeing the current Hollywood heart-throbs being goofy, incompetent, even perhaps insecure and there's plenty of that in this movie.

Ocean's Twelve actually had me guessing, or maybe hoping, that things wouldn't go right, but only because that's often refreshing in a Hollywood-ending milieu.
So, while in some places the film may trip over itself, all in all, it's at least worth the price of a matinee ticket (which is typically all I'm willing to spend anyway) which is about the same as renting the DVD. If you're really cheap and still uncertain, go to the dollar theater on discount night and watch it w/ a horde of hormonally-frenzied college kids at Movies 8. Just 50 cents... or maybe it's 75 cents now.

Anyway, I'm surprised myself at how "un"-disappointed I was.

Saw's title reminds me of They. And you know how I feel about that movie. Thank goodness I had Corn there to protect me.
