This week we cover one of the defining heist films of the 2000s: Oceans 11 — and the franchise it launched. Oh, and Kate talks Oceans 8, and it doesn't go like you think. We dive into how this launched heist films of the 2000s while embracing the film it's based on which starred the Rat Pack. We talk about the way the film evolved into a franchise, how influenced American heist films after the fact, and how we just really want to go back to a good heist film.
