KW's Pick: Gone in 60 Seconds...More Nicholas Cage. And some cars, and car chases. Spoiler Alert: Everything turns out fine. And Angelina Jolie, don't even get me started.
My pick: Oceans Eleven. On all accounts a pretty similar movie--assemble cast, heist movie, etc--but I liked it so much better. When I saw Oceans Eleven for the first time, I wanted to be a con man, I wanted to plan a heist and steal from a casino. The movie is cool and sexy, and everytime it is on TV, I have to stop and watch at least part of it. (All bets are off for the sequels though, they look really bad!)
