Double Shot New Movie Review: "Ocean's Thirteen" and "Evan Almighty"

I am a movie watching machine and am going to let you, the loyal reader, reap the rewards!

Ocean's 13: Pure pop candy. You watch this movie, willingly shut off your brain, and you are thoroughly entertained. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and the rest of the cast perform like clockwork together. The direction is big movie arty and the plot is just one huge MacGuffin for fun little scenes. It makes up for the first sequel and is more than worth a view on some form of media, be it at theaters, on TV, or on DVD.

Evan Almighty: The pseudo-sequel to "Bruce Almighty", Evan has Steve Carell as its lead, which automatically gives it 2 points in my book. Though it is being bashed by critics, the movie is fun and light and silly. There are several laugh at loud moments that had the whole theater cracking up. Morgan Freeman once again plays a great God and Carell is the master of subtle and over-the-top facial expressions and reactions. Go for the broad comedy, stay for the Jon Stewart cameo. Probably the most laugh out loud comedy of the summer, though "Knocked Up" is the all around better film.
