Full of explosions, machine gun fire and hand to hand combat, all in support of an absolutely preposterous scenario, “Olympus Has Fallen” offers us big dumb summer movie fun in the first days of Spring.
Ok boys and girls, this post announces the winner of the Best Supporting Actor MAJOR Award for 2011.
I put up five actors who I felt contributed the most to their films in spite of a limited amount of screen time. They weren’t the leads, but they made a fantastic contribution to their film.
The nominees are: Albert Brooks, “Drive”, Robert Forster, “The Descendants”, Paul Giamatti, “The Ides of March”, Nick Nolte, “Warrior”, and Christopher Plummer, “Beginners”.

“The Descendants” is a beautiful movie.
It’s a shoo-in for Academy Award nominations in several categories, including Best Director and Best Picture. If there’s any justice, Shailene Woodley gets a nod for her incredible work here, and there may even be a nom in George Clooney’s future for it.
It’s laugh out loud funny at several points, touching in numerous ways, occasionally thought-provoking, and I’m not gonna lie, there were a couple of moments when I teared up a bit. It’s a heart warming movie, and genuinely funny.
It’s one of the best films I’ve seen this year with ease.
