  1. Good one Alex! I got Oceans, American Hustle, and Wolf of Wall Street. I did not do very well 😝. I also loved Grifters (1990) and Dirty John (2018)

    • Not many know Shooting Fish but it is enjoyable for sure. Heartbreakers had a nice premise but was a bit flat. Jennifer Love Hewitt was in the first movie I ever reviewed as a film reviewer for a specialist website, way back when.

  2. I recognized The Sting (I LOVE IT), Ocean’s something, Catch Me If You Can, 21, American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street and Focus. Not bad I guess for someone who absolutely sucks when it comes to con artist movies haha

    Great post, Alex!

  3. I got 8 out of 12, yet I’ve only seen 3. Just Catch Me if You Can, American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street. I don’t know that I’d ever call it my genre, but I’m willing to check out more.
