This video shows the What The Flick? panel dissecting The Descendants, a movie directed by Alexander Payne and starring George Clooney. The latter won a Golden Globe for his performance.
The Descendants is the sort of movie I would have rejected outright just a few years ago. Where is the action? Where are the explosions? Where is the overlong car chase, the death-defying stunts, and the special effects?
As I’ve got older and my tastes have matured I find myself appreciating the storyline, the cinematography, and the acting performances much more than those aforementioned novelties.
The Descendants will be out on DVD and Blu-ray soon, and I personally feel that will be the best way of watching it. Only those films with all the above need to be watched at the cinema.
