Stop. Just Please Stop.

Monsters & Critics is reporting that Ocean's 13, a sequel to the dismal Ocean's 12, has been greenlighted.

Ocean's 11 was a brilliantly fresh remake of the cheesy classic. Saturated with a funky soundtrack, the deft direction of Soderbergh combined with the throwback cool of Clooney, Damon and Pitt gave us a couple of hours of unadulterated fun.

For the bare few moments I digested the putrid follow-up Oceans 12, I alternately wept and vomited.

Stephen, George etal., it will be difficult in the future to take you seriously after such a brazen money grab.

Then again, the brilliant Michael Caine when asked about making Jaws 4 quipped, "I've grown accustomed to a certain lifestyle."

I will never forgive Michael Caine for failing to pick up his Oscar for "Hannah and her Sisters" because he was off filming "Jaws: The Revenge," although I do love that "J:TR" is about a great white shark that seeks vengeance on the family of the man who killed it.

Nice page, James.
