Up in the Air (2009)
Seeing them traveling makes me feel jealous in times of Covid-19!
"Moving is living"- That is a quote and the slogan of "Up in the Air".
The movie already starts well: Shots, taken out of a plane, set the tone of the story and let you jump right into it.
Ryan Bingham is a loner, who isn´t much interested in other people. He likes so-called "Non-places" like terminals and hotels for business people. He travels 322 days a year; telling people that they lost their position is his job.
That´s why he, of course, doesn´t like confident Natalie Keener, who plans to change this lifestyle to reduce the costs of the company.
To get familiar with the business, she accompanies him in his work for a time.
Soon, both need to realize that the other is more different than they had been expected.
Jason Reitman´s movie is still good. It has a different kind of view for persons and stories.
I first watched the movie in times where traveling has become rare and it really makes you wish to travel around the world.
"Up in the air" is really good storytelling.
So you're saying the universe created a sitcom starring two Avengers?
On friday, the last episode of "WandaVision" was released and it was amazing!
The whole show is an adventure, an fascinating, thrilling story that achieves the same effect on people who have never seen Marvel before like on long-time fans. It is great that the show doesn´t clarify right away the mysterious things that are happening in Westview. That gives the viewer space to develop own theories, he muses about it more and looks forward to the next episode. "WandaVision" has set it´s own tone; the combination of sitcom and superheroes, old TV-shows and reality is new, funny, lively and exciting. Thanks for creating such a special story!
Teenagers that think and talk about real problems - finally!
There are many current movies about highschool , but, to be honest, most of them don´t deal with big questions or serious problems.
Quite contrary to "Moxie!".
The movie addresses a problem that is very present, but still is underrated.
Many people don´t take it serious.
Young woman are often too shy or anxious to say anything against sexism.
This is also shown in the movie: At the beginning, they don´t say anything against the sexism in front of the bullies- they first have to develop that
And, of course, protests don´t convince everybody immediately.
There are ups and downs, just like in real life.
Though some events were predictable, "Moxie!" still shows another side of highschool, which is really refreshing.
I Care a Lot (2020)
Why does an unpleasant scammer suddenly turn into a hunted undercover agent?
First it was funny. First it was exciting.
Scammer meets old lady with mighty friends and forces her into a retirement home .
"I'm the worst mistake you've ever made", the old lady says.
Then, however, the Mafia wants to kill the protagonist, but she survives so often, that it becomes very annoying and unrealistic.
Suddenly, she is an undercover agent not willing to lose.
Normally I never fast-forward a movie, but there was no other option in this case.
"I care a lot" is a completly confusing and illogical movie.
The Adventures of Tintin (2011)
Just as if the characters had jumped right out of the "Bande dessinée"!
I am a fan of "The adventures of Tintin" since I was little; the comics are still great, funny and thrilling, even after all this time.
Steven Spielberg is not the first person who makes a movie about Tintins stories, but he is the first person who lets the characters become so realistic.
Especially the beginnig is so heartwarming and sets the tone perfectly.
There is a little too much action in the end, but that is okay for an adventure film of the 2010ers.
Laid out as a trilogy, it is pretty sad that there probably won´t be a sequel- to see Professor Cuthbert Calculus or Rastapopoulos on screen would be amazing!
But, anyway, thanks to Mr Spielberg and Mr Jackson for creating this movie that is doing the comics and Hergé justice.
