‘Rick and Morty’ Review: Heist Movie Riff ‘One Crew Over The Crewcoo’s Morty’ Is a Glorious Double-Cross

‘Rick and Morty’ Review: Heist Movie Riff ‘One Crew Over The Crewcoo’s Morty’ Is a Glorious Double-Cross
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Rick and Morty” Season 4, Episode 3, “One Crew Over The Crewcoo’s Morty.”]

Let’s start with one unassailable fact: Rick Sanchez is wrong about “Ocean’s Twelve.”

Much like many other rants that fuel episodes of “Rick and Morty,” it’s rage that somehow morphs into an appreciation of the thing someone hates. The latest example comes in “One Crew Over The Crewcoo’s Morty,” an episode-length version of a space-set Soderberghian battle of wits between Rick and one of his creations.

It all starts when an act of attempted “cynical grave-robbing” leads Rick and Morty to discover that they’ve been outflanked by Miles Nightly, Rick’s archnemethief. Fueled by revenge, Rick constructs an opposing plan that ropes in all the attendees at HeistCon, a fan expo for heist gadgets, plans, and perpetrators that literally has its own Hall H.

It’s always been part of the “Rick and Morty” toolkit,

Endgame Directors Confirm Samuel L. Jackson Exists Within McU Alongside Nick Fury

Endgame Directors Confirm Samuel L. Jackson Exists Within McU Alongside Nick Fury
One of the great things about the creatives behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that they seem to have an answer for everything. They have all of this stuff planned out. Satisfying or not, they have a way to justify most every decision that has been made. Though, in some cases, that opens up a very large can of worms. That's the situation we find ourselves in right now, as the Russo brothers, the directors of Avengers: Endgame, have confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson the actor exists in the McU alongside Nick Fury, who is played by Samuel L. Jackson.

For those who might wonder why such a question even came up in the first place, it's been made clear that Star Wars firmly exists in the McU, partially thanks to a memorable line about The Empire Strikes Back from Captain America: Civil War. And, since Samuel L. Jackson plays Mace Windu in the prequels,

This Is Exactly How Much You'll See of George Clooney's Danny Ocean in Ocean's 8

This Is Exactly How Much You'll See of George Clooney's Danny Ocean in Ocean's 8
Warning: Extremely mild spoilers for Ocean's 8 below!

The cast for Ocean's 8 is chock-full of A-listers - Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and more - but there's one actor who is noticeably absent from the all-star lineup: George Clooney. Although the Suburbicon director originated the role of heist mastermind Danny Ocean in the initial trilogy - Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, and Ocean's Thirteen - the character has been killed off in the new spinoff, which it hinted at in the movie's thrilling trailer.

The slick caper follows Danny's sister, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), as she devises a plan to pull off a jewelry heist at New York City's yearly Met Gala after being released from prison. With the help of her eclectic all-female crew, Debbie schemes to rob one celebrity (Hathaway) of her jaw-dropping $100-million necklace at some point throughout the event.

Ocean's 8 Wins at the Box Office with $41.5 Million

Warner Bros.' Ocean's 8 had no trouble fending off the competition this weekend, debuting atop the box office with $41.5 million. The Ocean's Eleven spin-off had been projected to debut within the $40 million range in its first frame, and it managed to match those expectations with an impressive debut, ending the two-week winning streak of Disney/LucasFilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story, which dropped to a distant second place with $15.1 million. Ocean's Eight's reign may be a short one, with The Incredibles 2 arriving next weekend and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in the frame after that, but its debut is still impressive nonetheless.

The $41.5 million debut at the box office represents more than half of Ocean's 8's $70 million budget, and even though it only earned $12.2 million overseas for a global opening weekend tally of $53.7 million, it should have no trouble eclipsing its budget and making a solid profit. The

An 'Ocean's' Refresher Course Before Seeing 'Ocean's 8'

The Ocean's franchise is known for its convoluted schemes, which is par for the course if you are trying to rip off some of the most powerful casino folks in Las Vegas.

Danny Ocean (George Clooney) and his team have resorted to faking an earthquake (Ocean's Thirteen), removing part of the top floor of a casino (also Ocean's Thirteen) and, in one of the most infamous moments in any franchise's history, had Tess Ocean (Julia Roberts) create a distraction by pretending to be … Julia Roberts (Ocean's Twelve). Apparently, Julia Roberts exists in the Ocean'...

Review: Ocean's 8, Thieves Like Us, Sorta

Upon its release in December 2001, Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven felt like a salve upon a troubled nation's open wounds. Coming on the heels of Soderbergh's dazzling dramatic duo of the previous year (Erin Brockovich and Traffic), his caper flick felt like a lark, a remake for a major Hollywood studio that was happy to indulge his stylistic whims and fancies. The ensemble cast, led by George Clooney and Brad Pitt, looked like they were having a good time, and that infected anyone lucky enough to see the movie in a theater with an appreciative audience. Soderbergh's casual grace and the charm of the cast carried the sequels, Ocean's Twelve (2004) and Ocean's Thirteen (2007), but the trilogy came to a good-natured conclusion and all...

Ocean's 8 Is on Track for a Great $45M Opening Weekend

Warner Bros. is getting ready to roll out its highly-anticipated female lead Ocean's 8, a spin-off of director Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven trilogy, and it seems this could be a sleeper hit of the summer. Early box office tracking has put Ocean's 8 between $30 million and $45 million for its opening weekend. While we'll have to wait about three weeks to see how it really fares in theaters, this high-profile spin-off has the advantage of debuting right in between some of this summer's biggest movies.

Ocean's 8 will be going up against Global Road's action-thriller Hotel Artemis and A24's thriller Hereditary, and while both of those movies will arrive in wide release, they likely won't get quite as wide a release as Ocean's 8, which will likely be somewhere between a 3,500 and 3,750 theater-count debut. The movie has an estimated production budget of $70 million, a modest figure that could mean

Predicting 2018's Biggest Summer Movies at the Box Office

For the past several years, decades even, the annual summer movie season kicks off on the first weekend in May, which is when many colleges and universities end their school years. The summer season typically lasts until the last weekend in August, with the Labor Day holiday weekend typically signifying the start of the fall movie season. This year, summer started a weekend earlier with the April 27 release of Marvel's highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, so we decided to break down the entire summer movie season and try to predict the top 10 movies at the box office this season.

For the past four years, the summer movie season has kicked off with a Marvel Studios adventure. Avengers: Infinity War follows Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 from last year, Captain America: Civil War in 2016 and Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015. Many were quite surprised when Marvel opted to move Avengers: Infinity War

Ocean's 8 Trailer #2: Sandra Bullock Unites Her Team of Thieves

Following the eight brief trailer previews Warner Bros. released yesterday, the studio has now unveiled the full trailer for Ocean's 8. This video offers more new footage than what was released in the first trailer that debuted back in December, and with this star-studded female lineup led by Sandra Bullock, we could be looking at one of this summer's biggest hits. Here's the official synopsis from Warner Bros.

"Criminal mastermind Debbie Ocean and seven other female thieves try to pull off the heist of the century at New York's annual Met Gala. Their target, a necklace that's worth more than $150 million. Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) attempts to pull off the heist of the century with the perfect crew co-led by Lou (Cate Blanchett); and including Nine Ball (Rihanna); Amita (Mindy Kaling); Constance (Awkwafina); Rose (Helena Bonham Carter); Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway); and Tammy (Sarah Paulson)."

Ocean's 8 could very well be a sleeper hit.

Ocean's 8 Trailer Arrives, Planning a Met Gala Heist

Ocean's 8 Trailer Arrives, Planning a Met Gala Heist
The first Ocean's 8 trailer has arrived with a heist plan to steal from The Met Gala. The tide has turned and it's a whole new "Ocean's" when a group of 8 plan and execute the heist in New York.

Hollywood has been rebooting classic movies with a female twist and, even though everyone on board isn't calling this a reboot, Warner Bros. is driving the heist series with a stacked, all-female cast. Now, after releasing a brief teaser yesterday, the studio has released the first full trailer for the movie. Can it live up to the quality of Ocean's Eleven? The talent is certainly there and that's a great place to start. As for the footage? That's for you to watch and decide for yourself.

"Ocean's Eight" Awaits

Chris here. While the world is continually bad, one of our sustaining mantras has been the promise of female ensemble heisting with Ocean's 8. The main refrain of this meditation / mindfulness exercise is obviously its stars - say their names with me and feel renewed: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina.

Well done.

We've got a new poster and a photo of the assembled crew to distract ourselves, but even this is just a hint of the fun to come (you can expect a trailer to come very soon, impatient readers). Bullock will be playing Danny Ocean's equally conning sister Debbie, so the opportunity remains for some fun crossover with Steven Soderbergh's trilogy. The film's big heist will take place during the Met Gala and juicy cameos should be expected. Ocean's 12 already made a "Julia Roberts pretending to be Julia Roberts" gag,

Ocean's Eight Poster Lines Up an Epic Cast of Thieves

Ocean's Eight Poster Lines Up an Epic Cast of Thieves
The first poster for Ocean's Eight is here. It's hard to think of a better heist movie than Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven, which spawned two sequels and made a boatload of money at the box office. Warner Bros. is looking to keep the franchise going with the female-driven Ocean's Eight. Now, the studio has unveiled the first poster for the movie, which leans into the stacked, all-female cast, led by Sandra Bullock.

While we haven't seen any footage from Ocean's Eight just yet, this poster offers a rather reassuring first look. The poster is very sleek and features a whole lot of red. Sprinkled in with that red is the eight, core female stars of the movie, who are led by Sandra Bullock, who serves as the connective tissue to the other Ocean's movies, as the sister of Danny Ocean (George Clooney). In a recent interview with EW, Bullock

'Ocean's Eight' Villain Named; Spoiler: It's a Man

Villains are just as important as heroes nowadays, especially in team-up movies. Back when the original Ocean's 11 was released in 1960, a villainous character named Duke Santos didn't even show up until after the lovable heroes had already pulled off their amazing casino heist. By the time Steven Soderbergh, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and company remade the movie as Ocean's Eleven in 2001, villains had become essential, so villainous casino owner Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) became an integral element in the heist flick and also its sequel, Ocean's Twelve. The third installment, Ocean's Thirteen, featured nasty businessman Willy Bank (Al Pacino). Now that the primary heroines of spin-off movie Ocean's Eight have been assembled -- Sandra Bullock, Cate...

Ocean's Eight First Look at Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett
Back in August, we reported that the highly-anticipated all-female spin-off Ocean's Eight will begin principal photography sometime this October in New York City, under the direction of Gary Ross.

Ocean's Eight Gets a Summer 2018 Release Date

Ocean's Eight Gets a Summer 2018 Release Date
With its cast now in place for the highly-anticipated Ocean's Eight, Warner Bros. has set a June 8, 2018 release date for this project. This new all-female reboot will square off against what could be a huge summer blockbuster, Paramount's Transformers 6, while also arriving two weeks before Disney and LucasFilm's Star Wars spin-off centering on Han Solo. It will also open one week before Disney Pixar's long-awaited Toy Story 4 and two weeks before Universal's Jurassic World 2.

Entertainment Weekly reported on the release date last night, although there are still no plot details that have surfaced yet. We last reported on the project this past August, when it was revealed that production is being eyed to begin in October. We still don't have an exact production start date yet, but with the main cast members in place, filming could begin any day now. Jennifer Lawrence was previously eyed for a role, but she

Bruce Lee Vs. Wong Jack Man in Trailer for Birth Of The Dragon

"This is kung fu. It's not a game. It is not a religion. It's about who lives, and who dies."

If you're a fan of Bruce Lee and martial arts, you've gotta watch this new trailer for the upcoming film Birth of the Dragon. The story revolves around Lee and his legendary fight against Kung Fu master Wong Jack Man, who doesn't like what Lee is doing with the art of Kung Fu. A lot of the story is shown in the trailer. This looks like a fantastic film, and I'm excited about watching it.

Birth of the Dragon was directed by George Nolfi, director of The Adjustment Bureau, and writer of films such as Ocean's Twelve, The Sentinel, and The Bourne Ultimatum. I like the tone of the film, and the guy they got to play Bruce LeePhilip Ng — is great!
