Up in the Air

Forget those blue cat people in Avatar... just give me George Clooney in an airport.
{actually... I do still want to see Avatar and probably will this coming weekend}
Guy and I saw Up in the Air and loved it. It is by far the best movie I've seen this year. My guess is I have a stronger affection to it than most because I travel quite a bit but I promise you'll love. It's not predictable and is very 'real.'



George Clooney's character is hired by companies to lay off their employees. You know, not get their hands dirty and have a professional do it. Such an awful job. Part of his spheel, when he's laying someone off, is something to the affect of "every man who built an empire... sat exactly where you're sitting today." I don't know... I just like that sentiment. It's a nice reminder that any horrible situation can be turned into your next stepping stone to something better.

You know, I haven't had any interest to see this, but now maybe I will....or maybe I'll wait till it hits my local redbox. :)

Oh, wasn't it soo good?? I thought it was great! And Ann Kendrick was fantastic too. Love the part when she breaks down and starts bawling in the airport :-)
