‘Ocean’s 8’ is an Exercise in Expectation vs. Reality

In the past few years, reboots have become as ubiquitous as Marvel sequels. It feels like every week a new reboot gets announced.

So yes, Gravity is pretty darned good.

But, I just can’t shake the feeling that it could have been so much better.

Spoiler Alert! Please don’t read on if you don’t want Gravity spoiled for you.
