"Up in the Air"...a good one

when i first read the synopsis (i wasn't even paying attention)...i thought it's just another warm romantic comedy...with pretty Hollywood people...with a slice of life...a little bit of "Terminal" vs "Dan in Real Life" kind of movie...ok


until i came to know that it was nominated for 6 Oscars...including best motion picture...
and George Clooney was nominated for best actor...
and both the actresses were nominated for best supporting actress...
and most important of all...it was from the director of "Juno"

now it became a must watch isn't it?...although it did not win any oscar

this movie is funny...simple and light storyline...yet emotional and thought-provoking
GC is cool...his character is cool...Vera Farmiga is hot (lady in business suits...ehem)...Anna Kendrick is cute
do you need anymore reasons?

if you run out of movies to watch before the opening of Alice this Thursday...check this movie out before it's off the screen...
it's already not available in Ipoh...so sad...i'll have to get the DVD soon

if you could spend the ringgits going to cinema for some silly chinese new year movies...why not try this oscar nominee?
(and don't worry...although it is an Oscar nominee, it's not overly "arty")
