I don't go out to the movies too often, preferring to catch them at home. But I saw Up in the Air last night and I am quite glad I did. The movie was really excellent. It kept my attention, was funny, had a serious message, was not offensive in any way, and was fresh. I am no expert about awards, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it win the Acadamy Award. While others might predict Avatar, which I haven't seen, based on what I heard about it, I would think Hollywood would be more proud of this film than Avatar. And maybe they would vote that way rather than based on special effects and blockbusterness.
