I can’t get over….

…how awesome “Up in the Air” is going to be. December 4 can’t come fast enough now. I’ve been watching the trailers at least a dozen times a day, and every time they get better and better. Initially I wasn’t a huge fan of the first trailer, but it has grown on me as I listened more carefully to the words. For better or for worse, I can relate to many of the sentiments he expresses in the first clip. I don’t value (some) relationships enough, and I can fit most of my “life” in a bag, for better or for worse. I especially love this quote:

“The slower we move, the faster we die.”

I haven’t been this excited about a movie, since, well….

    I'm worried that we'll be disappointed. This doesn't seem to be so much about mileage running as it is about a guy who travels a lot for work and likes miles.

    Just buy one of these and slap it on your carry-on. We'll find you soon enough.

    @ Carl Z.
    Yes, we have a secret handshake. It may or may not involve luggage tags also.
    Welcome to the cult.

    Wow. It looks like I've stumbled on to the Frequent Flyer's version of a Trekky-Nerd site. You guys have some sort of secret handshake or anything I should know about?

    The film was aired at the Toronto film festival yesterday- reviews are already coming in and seem to be very positive. However, I can't tell from the reviews how much frequent flying vs corporate downsizing this movie is really about.

  7. [email protected] Guest

    I agree completely. It looks to be as good as the book, if not better...
    Lucky, they announced that the movie will be out NOV 25 in all markets and a limited release (in areas TBD) the week before. I vote for a pre-Thanksgiving mini-DO and MR wherever it releases then.
    Cheers,

    IT's just seriously bad a$$ that George Clooney gets to play 'us'.

    Someone on Flyertalk posted about adding this to their Netflix queue. I'll be in the theatre opening weekend for sure...

    Lucky, is there going to be a MR/Up in the Air DO in London in the future?

  10. Johannes Guest

    I so agree with you!! I feel kinda the same!
    I will definitely watch this one!!
