Up in the Air (Drama 2009)

I'm really not sure why this movie was recommended for a few awards this year. It was a better-than-average flick but I really wasn't over-impressed. The story followed around this guy who fires people for a living, and even though the purpose of the plot was to show how his life was meaningless, I think everyone missed the whole part about all the peeps who got fired.

I mean I could give a rat's ass about Clooney's character and if he found some epiphany in the end. The more important characters were those who were hella older like in their 40s or 50s, getting canned by some company. Corporations are not meant to care about such happenings but if anyone has gone through unemployment they'll know how much that world is.
Rating - B
