    Re: Gravity

    I thought the previews looked absolutely terrible, like worst movie of the year. however everyone is raving about it, maybe I should hit this up.

    Re: Gravity

    Visually awesome. Very suspenseful. I have a feeling if you talked to an actual astronaut he would poke about a thousand holes in it from the start. That only made it a fraction of a bit worse for me.

    Sounds and cinematography was awesome too. Sandra Bullock is very irritating at times

    especially when she won't stop breathing extremely heavily when Clooney keeps telling her she is running out of oxygen and she can't effectively do anything at all an astronaut should be able to do



    Good movie overall. And it was even cooler to watch than anything else. I could've watched an hour and a half of just the views of the Earth.

    I really don't know why people are raving about this movie so much. Outside of good visual effects the movie wasn't very good.

    Well, I saw it tonight and absolutely loved it. Visually stunning and felt myself emotionally tied to the survival of Sandra.

    me too, I was like the whole thing is them floating away after the accident in the preview, how could can the rest of it be.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    I find it weird you go to a movie trying to look for holes to poke in it. Just enjoy the experience. Ah well no accounting for taste.

    Here is a thorough analysis of the holes: Poking holes in the Gravity trailer with NASA

    All in all, sounds like they did a reasonably good job.

    I haven't seen it yet. Did anyone feel motion sickness watching it?

    Star Wars isn't staged on any premise of reality, either.

    It was pretty boring once Clooney's character died not even half way through.
