3003 Leftovers... (106 movies items)

"Directed by Alexander Payne In this age of enlightenment, there's nothing more crucial to display on the big screen than the subject of 'forgiveness'. I hear it come up a LOT in metaphysical discussions and this film is a prime example of the notion and putting it to it's more effectiveness. -Clooney flawlessly plays Matt King, successful businessman who's wife is in a vegetative state due to a motorboat accident. At first in limbo as to how to take care of his two rambunctious daughters who gi"

Good Films Stuck at 7 Point Something..... (26 movies items)

" I am a die hard George Clooney fan. He brings in so much glamour into the table that his characters reflect so much charisma. The Descendants is a fulfilling drama consisting some griping performances. To me the real surprise package was Shailene Woodley as Alexandra King. She was really very good. So it is an very good effort from Alexander Payne. VERY GOOD "

Raw but rewarding

“When a film echoes experiences of the viewer it can dredge up memories that are painful in the extreme without any promise of a new perspective. I found the film tough going because of that.

Yet the character of Matt King (George Clooney) was so well drawn and accessible that his handling of extremely taxing events that smaller, pettier, weaker men could have spun to feel the satisfaction of revenge but to the detriment of so many others around them, were an inspiration. With so much pain around, why multiply it out? Why thrust in a knife of righteous anger at betrayal and self-interest then give it an additional twist?

There is so much to this film that it takes time to absorb the implications. Even though the plot has few surprises, the characters though initially ste” read more

Movie Diary - August 2012 (20 movies items)

"The Descendants was making me quiet and pensive, but the sadness was hard to catch because of the bright and shiny Hawaiian context. But that was the point I think. Your surroundings don't care how bad your life is most of the time. The sun shines like nothing happened and unfortunately life goes on. "

2012 Movie Diary - July (43 movies items)

"I loved it but I don't see what was so fantastic about George Clooney... He was good, but necessarily Golden Globe worthy if you ask me. But oh well, it wasn't my decision. The rest if the cast varied: Shailene Woodley and Judy Greer were absolutely fantastic. So was Amara Miller for a newcomer (and a 10-year-old), but Matthew Lillard was quite average. The script was fantastic, I loved the story and the locations. It's more of a "dramedy" than a solid drama though"

"Watched: 4/18/12 1st Viewing Thoughts: I can't say I love George Clooney as much as most people. He is usually servicable in most roles, but nothing particular special. in 'The Descendants', he comes across as a brilliant actor. My opinion of him somewhat changed after the viewing. He plays a man in a dire crisis, having to deal both with his dying wife, and the fact that she was cheating on him. In addition, his children aren't the easiest kids to manage. A good amount of hilarity ensues there"
