Cancer? No Thank You.

Now in Los Angeles but sandbagged several movies for posting on these days where I won't be watching films. First up is Jason Reitman's Up In The Air (2009), a film I really enjoyed and also identified with as it reminded me ex-colleague road warrior. Clooney is excellent but the turn he takes is predictable and thus knocks the film from making my top 10 for 2009. In general a terrific examination of the social condition and how people fall in and out of that circle.

David Twohy's A Perfect Getaway (2009) is a high concept thriller with solid performances from all leads that manages to deliver enough suspense to make it worthy if not a little silly as well. Good rental.
