"Hehe, You would think it's about the sea, wouldn't you? No, It's about a guy named Danny Ocean and he has a plan. To pull a heist in three different casino's at the same time - but that's the kind of job that requires a lot of man power and planning. Forethought into the next phases and the potential hiccups that could come if you don't have extremely specialized people. He ends up gathering eleven other people with him each with their own unique gimmick that makes them perfect for the job." It amused him that the thought and showcase of criminals in action could be rewarding in the entertainment category. "Singularly, they'd be bad. Unable to get the job done or worse get caught. But all together working as a well-oiled machine? That's where they ended up showing they shine the best.

Travis shook his head gently for a moment. "Let's see. . . There's Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, Thirteen, and one that has an all female cast called Ocean's Eight. Haven't seen that one yet but I'd feel like I did the franchise a disservice if I don't give it a proper shot." At the very least it had been a catalogue of things to show how intuitive the mind could be when a group of people wanted something bad enough - by any means necessary in that vein at that. "I wouldn't really call theme Saga's. The previous movies have no continuation, it's just very. . . 'New Heist, new Job - more people." Now that he wondered on it, not many movies that had sequels or even prequels seemed to be in a position to be properly identified as Saga's. A shrug followed suit as he pushed the thoughts out of the way. 

"At any rate, there are tons of different things to snag an interest. Some do have violence but there are those that aren't so gory or severe. At most a bit of swordplay and some massive explosion that is left for movie watchers to interrupt.

"Oh, I see." Danielle confirmed her understanding so they could segue onwards in the conversation - but nevertheless, it was still a somewhat confusing title. If Ocean was referencing the name of the main character, Danny Ocean, yet it openly dragged one's attention to the rest of the squad itself with the number 'Twelve', who was the main character? Should she even be questioning it? She knew nothing of Muggle motion picture naming convenions. She came to the conclusion that actually thinking about it would make things worse, and let it go.

"I'd rather... not see explosions, to be honest." She knew that seeing deaths would most likely trigger bad memories; so would explosions, as more than one member of her group had perished in them before. Would 'swordplay' trigger it? Hopefully not - she had never experienced the literal activity, but it could be that she was highly susceptible to break down at any display of violence. It made her somewhat uneasy at least. "When can we start? I've heard that it's time for the final exams here right now, but maybe sometime after...?" She wouldn't want to get in the way of Travis' academic success, after all.

He nodded as if it had been a matter of fact through the extremely brief summary that’d he’d given of the movie. The premise had been there, but it did it very little justice without seeing the extent of how it went for oneself. It was the kind of movie that he’d have preferred someone to view and see for themselves and decide what the true perspective of it all had been. Of course, that had always been the importance situated behind movies made in any fashion or world. “I know it can seem kind of confusing with the way it sounds but we’ll just have to slap it right in front of your eyes somehow.

It hadn’t bothered him that it may require stepping off campus or at the very least smuggling the teen girl into his dorm after he snagged the right kind of instruments to make use of it. Perhaps the tougher of the options would be procuring something that had been designed to resist the large amounts of magical residue that surged through the entire campus.

Doesn’t need to be anything with explosions. There are a few movies that are pretty moving to the heart. Either in breaking it or uplifting it, both are usually the kind of emotions people look to actually experience with movies.” To be in the position to see something, experience it and not reap all the ill that often came along with it. “Yea. . . I still need to get through my SPIDER exams. Not too hard, really. I usually don’t worry about that kind of stuff until it’s right in front of me. When it is, I can deal with it then.

Travis understood that it wouldn’t do him any good to start planning to spend time with friends with exams and tests hanging over his head. It wouldn’t be fair to them especially those that were touchier about his education and studies than he’d been, like a Den Mother.  “How about sometime during the new school year? If we handle it early, especially during your Muggle Studies then it would fit perfectly as a kind of study and understanding of their world. Two birds, one stone. You can get an idea of a person’s mind or a societies mind by how most of them perceive and interact with their own culture and societies.

Danielle nodded in agreement. She just had to sit and see the movie - there was no use thinking about it presently. The fact she'd be watching it with Travis gave her a very strange sense of ease - she didn't feel like anything odd or dangerous would come of it (even if his signature odor was quite strange for a human, although she didn't pay that much mind for the time being). The idea of witnessing this new form of entertainment with the boy during the Summer also felt like a perfect occasion to avoid being barbecued by the sun and just a generally nice reprieve from the heat - they would be indoors, and since they would likely be in Tallygarunga (lest they go to a theater), they could very easily activate some sort of local charm to cool the room they'd be in; and even give themselves some fresh beverages to boot. It truly sounded relaxing, something she hadn't had the opportunity to do for... ever?

"Would during the break itself be too early?" She suggested. Unless the boy didn't board Tallygarunga through the break, she didn't see why that couldn't be the case. Having an agreement to that would certainly make her a happy customer, anyway. "I'm fairly sure I have to return this book anyway by then." She raised said book that her temporary roommate had let her borrow. "Perhaps I could get a few books from the library pertaining social studies, and you help me go over it while we watch this 'Ocean's Eleven' of yours?" And... however many numbers he had described. There were so many that she didn't know east from west anymore.

"The break. . ." His fingers ran along his chin for a moment, would he even be around in this part of the area? Maybe a bit. He had no problem travelling long term and if he slept out in the bush a night it could give him enough time to make it to the Bourke dorm showers to freshen himself up before meeting the girl. "Sure, I think I can make the break work out. That isn't much of a problem to pull off." Means he could also do some quick shopping on his way towards the area. He didn't really trust the BT to get him and a bunch of equipment to an area near the school nice and safely.  "We can make it an early afternoon thing, gives me sometime to see if I can grab up everything that's needed.

She didn't have her own set of books? That must've made trying to make sure she had everything a bit difficult when heading for class, didn't it? "Sounds good to me, just be careful with the librarian. She can be, er, a bit prickly. By a bit I mean a lot. Treat the books nicely, don't ask any question you might think is sensible, it might sound like a stupid question to her. And take care of the book like it was an extension of your very life." There had been no need to send her into the den of the Dragon Queen without the essential tools of survival. The Librarian was a pretty lady to look at if you could get over the fact that she had a snarl and looked as if she'd rip your heart out in a swift motion.
