While I was off for two weeks wallowing in self-pity and (excuse the graphic description) snot, I did get the chance to see a couple of movies I was interested in viewing following the Oscar's.  I watched "The Descendants" with George Clooney and was quite taken by his performance.  I normally am only able to get glimpses of George as himself in most of his movies.  But this one was quite different.  I saw the movie as an almost perfect portrayal of human imperfection.  It was really good.

The other movie I saw was "Beginners".  I was interested primarily because of Christopher Plummer's receipt of the Oscar for best supporting actor.  Not being very fond of a format that constantly involves flashbacks I was really not drawn into this movie.  Plummer's performance was ....OK but I didn't really see it as Oscar winning.

I'm still waiting to see "Albert Nobbs" with Glenn Close.  It's on my list of movie rentals.

Have you seen any good movies lately? What do you recommend?
