Still feeling young?

Ocean's Eleven (2001) was released 20 years ago.

The movie, starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia and Julia Roberts, was a critical and financial hit.

The original Ocean's 11 (1960) was released 61 years ago.

An example of a sequel being a much better movie than the original.

@fitheach Aye, I sat through the original at one point. The plot was mildly amusing at best, but it was interesting to watch nonetheless, playing in old Las Vegas, which was on a wholly different (smaller) scale than current Vegas.

Part of the plot was about a garbage truck and it struck me as amusing that a single garbage truck could collect all of Las Vegas' garbage. That is just completely unthinkable now.

Humanity was much smaller then!


It's been a long time since I saw the 1960 movie. I don't remember much about the garbage truck. However, 1960 was before the plastic era really got going.
