    So I saw Ocean's 13 the other day and I have to say that it was not good. Not good at all. So bad in fact that Julia Roberts bailed on it completely.

    Ocean's 11 was good and I own it on DVD. Ocean's 12 was DECENT at best. It had one of the worst bridges between a movie and real life actors ever in it though. I mean one of the absolute worst... If you've seen the movie then you know what I am talking about.

    Ocean's 13 was all around boring, pointless, and not necessary. Ocean's 11 was a remake in the first place. They should have stopped with the remake and NOT made sequels if you ask me.

    I suspect 13 will be the last for sure. It's by far the worst movie of the three. It had maybe one or two good one liners, but, those were in the trailer.. They should have just made the trailer and included it as a bonus feature on the Ocean's 12 DVD as a joke. :)

    I'm not saying it was a horrible movie in itself, but, out of the three "Ocean's" movies, it is easily the worst. I have no reason to see it again that's for sure. At least 12 was pretty entertaining. The plot for 13 was so thin and basic, and dumb. :(

    I have 11 and 12 on DVD, and I was kinda looking forward to 13. I'm pretty sure that I've seen it, though, and it bothers me that I can't remember for sure. Was Pachino involved in the heist?

    Al Pacino is in it.

    Major spoilers below...

    He screws over Reuben and cuts him out of a casino startup and then the entire movie revolves around the rest of the gang rigging Pacino's casino so he loses money on opening night and so the casino reviewer doesn't give him a prestigious 5 diamond (something like a 5 star) award for his casino hotel. That's the entire plot.

    Yeah, the first 2 were pretty good but this one was a real let down. If they were to make another one it's going to do very poorly unless they completely turn it around. I think they've done as many of these as they can do though (at least I hope). Although I did think that the new Rocky was a terrible idea but then I loved it so what do I know.

    I have not seen Ocean's 13 but I like Ocean's 11. I did see Ocean's 12 and I really didn't like it. I heard that there was a different director for 12 and that's why it wasn't as good.

    Heh, Scuba and I watched it sometime over the summer.... To hell with that movie. The series....? has gotten so predictable that its sad. No more oceans. I would have been very happy if only the first one had come out.

    Another good movie series ruined by a third. I'm kinda getting sick of this trend.

    Ocean's 11 was a great movie. I thought 12 was pretty boring. I don't even really care to see 13. I agree, they probably should have stopped after the first one. Sadly, that's just how the movie industry is now. They'll keep making sequels until nobody cares anymore.
