The 2011 New York Film Festival came to a close on October 16, 2011 with the premiere of the new George Clooney vehichle, “The Descendants.”  Clooney was in the house to wave goodbye to the festival (as you can see pictured above).  The film is about a man whose wife is in a coma (due to a boating accident), his two troubled daughters, new information that his wife had an affair on Georgey and the fact that Clooney’s character has the sole right to sell or keep a ton of land in Hawaii.  While the film was shot beautifully on location in Hawaii, the film would have been a better Lifetime movie of the week as it was totally predictable and not really that well acted. There were holes in the plot as deep as the bodies of water the film was made in and I found myself wishing that they would just pull the plug on his damned wife so this movie would end.  Interestingly, the film takes place in tropical weather and there was not one scene were George Clooney was shirtless.  That wouldn’t have made the movie all that much better for me, but I am just pointing it out since a lot of people get wet when they think of ole GC.  He does wear shorts in some scenes and he has quite nice legs.  I had to pay attention to something other than the movie and since so many people appeared to be enjoying it, I wasn’t going to be “that guy” who is a total dickbag at movies and starts texting.   Of course by now you know I am a movie curmudgeon, so this movie will probably win every award known to man and you’ll hear talk around town that everyone loved it.  Everyone except me!  Don’t forget that!

George Clooney turns the big Five Oh today and we wish him a happy one.  Considering how mobbed he tends to get, Clooney is a very nice guy and if at all possible will happily sign autographs for fans.  I’ve always respected that especially since people that are much less famous than George Clooney often give so much attitude towards people that helped put money in their pockets. 

Also born today:  Rudolph Valentino, Orson Welles and Sigmund Freud.

The Best Garlic Bread on Earth

Smoke House - Located in Burbank, California

If you are ever in Southern California, you MUST go to the Smoke House in Burbank.  They have the best garlic bread on earth.  I’ve been going there ever since I was a lower case G.  Now that I live in New York, I don’t get to frequent it as much, but recently, I went back to California just to have this delicious bread, which is in no way related to the fake band I was once in called “Delicious Water.”

Chances are, you’ll run into at least one celebrity while you dine, as it is located across the street from Warner Bros. Studios.  Rumour has it that actor George Clooney loves the food so much here, he started a production company called Smokehouse Productions.

Check out a picture of this mouth watering bread after the jump.
