Thursday Movie Picks: Work Place Movies
This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is Work Place Movies! I tried not to go with the obvious pick, which would be Office Space. I think that movie probably comes to 95% of everyone's mind when they hear "work place movies" so I tried to pick something a little different.
1) Up in the Air
A movie about a job that requires you to fire other people from their jobs. This is my favorite Reitman film, and also one of my favorites in general. They might not be in the typical office all day, but the're traveling around, much like the rest of my picks.
2) Thank You For Smoking
Speaking of Reitman, who knew being a tobacco lobbyist could actually look so appealing? I also like how despite the entire film being about smoking, not one person is shown smoking on screen.
3) The Social Network
You know who I would never want to go into business with? Mark Zuckerberg. Even with his hilarious business cards.
Honorable mentions: Anchorman, Empire Records, Chef.
