LAST CHOICE

When compiling these selections, it actually came down between this and the original Child's Play for the fifteenth spot and I ultimately went with this. This particular viewing was only the second time I'd seen Up in the Air and I liked it much better this go around. Film snobs tend to overlook Clooney as a quality actor and Farmiga is also fine onscreen. Happy to invite this one into my fold.










RATING: 8/10

  1. Ah, that's god.. At last one of the recen crop that I have seen, and therefore, I can, at last add a comment. (Disappointed to see that you haven't had the support for this 'relaunch')
    Yes, I rather liked this as well. Nothing great, not destined to be any sort of a classic, or warranting a place in screen greats lists, but a well made and engrossing story line, well acted.
    (Andrew, the 'recent comments' box is no longer there .. It's disappearance seems a moderately re-occurring thing - not just you, but now and ten Amanda's gone missing as well, nothing to do with her actions)

    1. Glad you liked this one Ray!

      As for the comments box, Blogger has done away with that option, unfortunately. I will keep checking however and hopefully they bring it back.
