Up in the Air
The story of a man ready to make a connection.
George Clooney plays the dry cynical character of Ryan Bingham, an executive who specializes in "downsizing". Ryan lives out of his suitcase, traveling the country for the sole purpose terminating unwanted employees day after day. Just as Ryan is about to reach his life-long goal of the ten million mile frequent flyer mark some major changes come his way. Changes that threaten to crack the cold heartless exterior that is Ryan Bingham.
A series of puns about Up In The Air
-It's just plane good.
-Jason is the Reitman for the job.
-Fired on all cylinders
-I haven't got a Clooney
It's a good movie.
Part entertaining crowd-pleaser, part depressing character study, Up in the Air is one of my favorite films from recent years. Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is a guy who has made it the top of his field flying around the country firing people in place of cowardly employers. He isn't just a heartless ass hole, though. He wants to let people go with dignity in their darkest hour and does his best to understand each person he's about to fire and tailor his method to their individual needs.
His entire life revolves around disconnection and loneliness, but he doesn't realize that until a young up-and-comer Natalie (Anna Kendrick) becomes his protégé after proposing a way to modernize his business. He also…
Ryan has accustomed to a free lifestyle through airports, hotels and car hire. He can carry everything he needs in his small trolley; he is a VIP member of all loyalty programs that exist and is about to reach his life goal: 10 million miles, as a regular customer. When he falls for a traveling companion, his boss, inspired by an ambitious young efficiency expert, threatens to limit him to the office, away from the constant travel. Faced with the both terrifying and exciting prospect of stopping to fly, Ryan begins to glimpses the true meaning of having a home.
Up in the Air is probably the less divisive film from the acclaimed director, Jason Reitman and that's why many…
Who better suited to capture the faux homeyness or, in the movie's own lingo, the fauxmeyness of America's many stale airports and hotel rooms than Jason Reitman, a director so workmanlike and safe in approach that even when he makes a bad movie it ends up being the bland type of bad. Usually, I'm pretty allergic to Reitman's airless direction, but it really suits Up in the Air, a movie so committed to portraying artificial comforts that it ends up being one itself. Approach and content are married here to create a movie that's not particularly great, but actually leaves an impression on the viewer. Reitman is aided by his fantastic actors. Clooney is reliable as ever, even if he…

"Up in the Air" is everything a romantic comedy should be. Interesting, eye-catching, funny, and well played.
The main character is hilarous on its own. Ryan (George Clooney), a man who dedicates his life to fly across the whole country to fire people -yes, really-. He spends more time above a plain and on hotels than he does in his own home. To this, add a young apprentice (Anna Kendrick) who is ready to change the only thing he has in his life -his job- and a middle-age woman (Vera Farmiga) who is ready to change the only thing he doesn't want in his life -stability-.
The film has some beautiful takes, with incredible photography that must be hard to…
About one-half of a terrific film. Clooney is superb, the writing is crisp and the firing scenes really ring true. But then he goes to a wedding and the film falls apart. And who couldn't see the "surprise" when Clooney shows up at Vera Farmiga's door?
You know those animes where girls go around places and do absolutely nothing. Thats what this movie feelt like except it has george colomy
I had it in my head that this was going to be just another run of the mill romance movies... boy was I wrong.
Reitmans best film and one of Clooneys finest performances. The drama feels a bit constructed by times, but the charming actors solve this problems just by great acting. Soundtrack is great!
