Continuing our quest to watch all Best Picture NomineesThe Descendants
I thought it was really good. It really is, if nothing more, a "love letter" to Hawaii. The performances in the movie are nothing short of brilliant. The scenery in the movie, amazing. The island(s) are used to perfection as the background of some pretty intense stuff. But (IMO), where this movie could have gone off into REALLY dark territory (ala American Beauty) it didn't, and I'm glad it didn't.
Not sure if it's my pick for best picture, but so far, from what I've seen, George Clooney is my pick for best Actor.
There was one thing that bothered me though: SPOILER ALERT!!!!
If you are married to George Clooney, why would you have an affair with the guy who played Shaggy in the Scooby Doo movies?
