The Nocean's 8, Starring Rebecca, Elizabeth, Vivian, Kate, and Wu, with Irene, and Colin

Jun 15, 2018

Ocean's 8 is about as 2010s a movie as there's ever been. It's a reboot sequel of a series that started with a remake. The fun part, though, is that this movie (unlike the four that precede it) stars eight women. And the even funner part is that it's the number one movie in the country. Our all-star, all-lady (plus Colin) Nose has thoughts.

And: This week, North America was awarded the 2026 Men's World Cup, while this year's action started in Russia.
