Up in the Air trailer

Sep. 9, 2009by:

You'll pardon me for stepping out of line here with the blogerati but I'm just not drinking the Jason Reitman kool-aid. In the past few days I've heard him compared to Billy Wilder, Hal Ashby and Preston Sturgess. Uh huh. Frankly I'd like to see more than three films from the guy before declaring him a modern equal to three of the finest directors the medium has seen. To quote Winston Wolfe, let's not start sucking each others dicks quite yet.

I'm not dismissing Reitman next film UP IN THE AIR sight unseen but I'm certainly not jumping for joy as if Moses has come down from the mountain with two stone tablets in hand. I'll go see it just like I'd go to see EXTRACT or something. This new trailer, which debuted today at Slashfilm, is fine and mostly coasts on the ability of Clooney to deliver an effective speech. It's got me slightly intrigued and I'll leave it at that. You can check it out below.

@ Extra Tidbit

Haha wow. Now I don't like Juno as much as the next guy (okay, well as much as the next guy who would hate Juno), but those kids were little fuckin' brats. Reminded me of Edgar Wright's joke interview with Jonah Hill for Superbad.

The trailer itself is good, Reitman's lucky to have a great cast, and I'm sure we'll be hearing more about the film because of its growing Oscar buzz (TIFF will really decide that).

I thought it was going to be a comedy, but if it is a drama, it looks pretty good.

1. Where The Wild Things Are
2. Up in the Air
3. A Serious Man

I'm kind of upset that I'm saying this, but the movie that was in my Top 10 Anticipated Movies of the Year just lost some of my interest. I'm not judging the movie, just the teaser - and although we shouldn't base it off of just that, it has to give some indication of what we're in for, and it's unfortunately not what I expected.

So I don't know. I think it looks watchable and enjoyable, but I agree with Natty on it seeming "too deep for it's own good".

Seen it already

Saw this at the Telluride Film Festival this past weekend and it was FANTASTIC. It is easily his funniest movie (I would say it's the funniest of the year) and it also has a good amount of character and depth to it. Expect this movie to be pretty big. Clooney is perfect in the movie.

Good Flavor of Kool-Aid

I have decided to enjoy Jason Reitman kool-aide instead of the more popular Avatar flavored kool-aide (such an unnatural blue color... gross!).

The man's 2 for 2 so far and this trailer looks great! Its even got Bateman, Galifinakus (sp), and McBribe! Sign me up!

As for the film, I think it looks interesting. Could end up being too deep for it's own good but I'll see it.

The video in the extra tidbit is awesome.

"Did you ever need to call up your Dad to show you where to put the camera?"

Dunno why, maybe just because it's a monologue, but I somehow had to think of Fight Club...

well...

Clooney, Bateman, Galifinakis, Danny McBride, and Reitman...and one pretty powerful teaser...

I find it hard to see this being anything short of a great film.
