Jason Reitman's third film Up In the Air is definitely on par with his previous two films, Juno and Thanks for Smoking. He is really coming into his own. Every scene looks very professional and the story is taut and intriguing. The one knock I have on the film is it isn't very grandiose. You could say that about all of Reitman's films, but I feel this one needed to be. It needed to have a few larger-than-life scenes. The final scene with stars George Clooney and Vera Farmiga was indeed very good, but the film left me wanting more. It was a very good film, and very relevant to the times, but most importantly it was a serious and adult film. Something missing from the Honorable Mentions listed below. This was a real film, with real emotion. And I loved it for that, but I felt it was missing a few scenes that could have put it higher on this list.

Honorable Mention: 2012, WATCHMEN, TRANSFORMERS 2
