Up in the Air Movie Review - You've been let go!

Sunday, January 24, 2010
After Avatar, Zombieland, and a Cloudy Day of raining Cats and meatballs... the movie UP IN THE AIR just perfectly hits the SPOT!

The GOOD:
A GREAT STORY that touches your heart without you noticing it. A perfect mix of Comedy, Romance and Drama. George Clooney just keeps getting better and better, nuff said.

The BAD:
Can't really think of any. Well if you're in to Straight in to your face action movies that would survive even without the characters talking, then this movie is NOT FOR YOU.


The whole Guacamole:
Atlast, another movie that PULLS YOU BACK IN TO REALITY and makes you feel good about life and appreciate the things that you have, or for others, make them re-think their goals in life. The movie starts with George Clooney doing his "not so ordinary" Job, posing as "Mr. Death" of the corporate world, coming to fetch people and bring them the good news straight from hell, "You've just been fired" or as they say it in the film, "your position in this company is no longer available" thank you for your N number of years of serving the company, sorry but we no longer need you. Atlast! A movie where most, if not all of us can relate to. lol. Yes believe it or not, such jobs exist, and its as complicated as your minds can imagine. Reminds me of my Call Center days where we couldnt do anything more for the customer but say sorry mam but your Router's already with Saint Peter up above the clouds and we can't replace it with a new one since it's already way past its 2 year warranty.


Yes, firing/laying off people in behalf of their good old Managers/Bosses who are too whimpy to tell the bad news to their employees themselves. Now if that job hasn't tingled your curiosity yet, then wait till you see the other adventures that crosses George Clooney's path as his job brings him flying all around North America, bringing the sad news to different employees around United States. This Movie's the perfect break from all the Great action filled movies with shallow storylines that came out in the past month. Time to do more of the listening and rest your eyes from all those mind blowing effects.
