Don't Let Go
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock), a brilliant medical engineer on her first Shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The Shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone-tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness of space. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expance of space…
Yes. Yet another five star rating for Gravity. Before I go on, the five stars are for the experience. I don't know how you rate films, but my rating is for a great deal based on the fact that I just walked out of the theatre having seen something I have never seen before. Gravity is Jurassic Park's dinosaurs. It is a technological marvel urged on by a director who is intent on discovering how far he can stretch the medium. Many have said it and I have to agree. This was made for IMAX and probably shouldn't be seen any other way.
What makes Gravity so great? It is the totality of the immersive experience, the relentless ruthlessness of…
Oh my God. This movie was fucking phenomenal. I was totally blown away. Like Sandra Bullock I didn't want to let go.
Not only is Gravity by far the best movie of 2013, but it's also one of the best movies I've seen from the 2000s era. The visuals are surreal. Seriously if you don't see this in IMAX 3D you are doing yourself a huge injustice. Oh yeah and the special effects....WOW! From a visual/special effects standpoint Gravity is the best film. I've ever seen. Absolutely beautiful and breath-taking. It literally felt like I was in space.
The visuals and special effects aren't the only amazing things about this movie. The story, the execution, the performances, and everything in…
Alfonso Cuaron’s long in development, Gravity, finally arrives in the UK with stratospheric expectations - expectations that few films are ever likely to match. It is a lean and palpable disaster thriller as two astronauts attempt to survive an accident in the most inhospitable environment known to man - space.
Featuring some of the most jaw-dropping special effects ever committed to film, Gravity is a technical tour de force that rivals the experience of watching Jurassic Park for the very first time. The level of immersion is quite literally breathtaking as Cuaron and his technical team take the audience on a white-knuckle ride through space with our two helpless survivors desperately clinging to life and dwindling hope.
It is a…
Miss Congeniality and The American as astronauts fighting to survive in mother fucking Space. The Macarena. Pretty blood-shot eyes. The fuckin' silence. Silly-ass Harvard grads. Tales of Mardi Gras. Bye-bye Facebook. DeFUCKIN'tachment. SPACESHIP! Houston, we have a huge-giant-ass-holy-fuckin'-fuck-shit-mother-fucker-fuck problem. A flashlight. The-face-of-death. Marvin the fuckin' Martian. The beautiful sunrise. Vodka. A game of Human-Pinball-Wizard. Fuckin' ropes. A Chinese lifeboat. Comfortably numb. Spaceship firefighting. Fuckin' Space. How the fuck do you say mayday in Kalaallisut? A pretty-pretty-so-pretty lullaby. Barking. A little extra battery power. Mama's red shoes. It's this or that mother fucker. Kissing the mother fucking atmosphere. Either way your ass is going home. Gravity fucks your mind. It's fuckin' beautiful to watch. It deserves critical praise and acclaim. I hope it sweeps all the technical and visual Oscars. A fuckin' fantastic viewing experience. I tip my hat to Mr. Cuarón for a job well done.
Stunning, spellbinding, captivating, glorious, state of the art and beautiful, Gravity is everything that anyone could ask for in a modern film. It's a breath of fresh oxygen in a world dominated by generic blockbusters, and it's a new film that for once in many years actually feels new. It's a film that dazzles with such overwhelming technical wonder simple yet powerful storytelling that its pure calibrated balance is the stuff that dreams are made of. Gravity just left me in a state of such breathlessness and words can only begin to describe how spectacular this film truly is. It is an experience that must be felt first hand to fully believe.
What makes Gravity a rare treasure of film,…
The Good: Believe the hype, folks. Gravity is the real deal. What Cuaron and company have done here is nothing short of amazing. Right from the get-go, you know you're in for something special. This is not just Sandra Bullock floating in space for 90 minutes; it's so much more than that. Those scenes you see in the trailers? That's just the first 30 minutes. Shit gets even crazier after that. This is 90 minutes of pure, nerve-racking tension. Genuine, intense thrills set to jaw-dropping visuals. Cuaron's Gravity is one heck of a technical marvel. His trademark penchant for long takes -- now with immersive…
Como um filme no espaço consegue ser tão claustrofóbico?
Gravity is a film that although I feel was and is overrated, still manages to put together a good drama and with some breathtaking effects, I would still recommend this to everyone. From a fine director who has only really come from the shadows with this film to a duo that share this film and well Ii must also mention they are two of the biggest stars in Hollywood. With it's massive effects come massive affects to the characters and with some speedy space junk to and escape pods everywhere this film guarantees thrilling stuff. I felt this film was strongly good, and here is why.
The story is a good one, not the finest I could think of but…
Too much spinny spinny, fally fally for my liking.
(Quite glad I didn't see it in the cinema, I couldn't handle that on the big screen!)
Endlessly stressful and visually stunning, it definitely gripped me from the get go.
Whether you're in a confined space like in Locke or in outer space like in Gravity, you might as well feel equally imprisoned and if you wanna get out, you gotta fight for it.
As far as grief parables go, this one must be the most terrifying. And the most spectacular.
"I hate space..."
'Gravity' is the first film I ever watched at the cinema in 3D.
It was - and remains - the only film I was remotely interested in seeing in that eye-aching format.
The only reason I even chose to do so at all was because the esteemed Mark Kermode, that marvelously bequiffed, frequent outspoken hater of 3D, shamefully admitted to all and sundry that 'Gravity' was actually worth seeing in three dimensions.
(The amazing video of that proclamation can (and should) be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJu7Ov8IN1c.)
So, one cold Saturday afternoon in November 2013, me and three other friends paid for our tickets, got our Roy Orbison 3D specs (which are a mild pain to wear over…
Tense thriller that pits the merciless ambit of nature versus humanity.
Excellent visuals, boring story.
No cinema moderno, Gravity pode muito bem ser considerado um dos melhores filmes do ano. E não digo a esmo, mas diante de qualquer outro filme do gênero, é uma belíssima obra cinematográfica.
É um filme onde a solidão e sobrevivência ensaiam a condição humana de vida impossível. O cerne da produção consiste em mostrar o paradoxo claustrofóbico à vastidão do espaço, na melhor visão da terra que se pode ter em um filme (não somente pela tecnologia utilizada, pois o 3D tem lá seus méritos), e diga-se de passagem, um dos melhores resultados alcançados até hoje - Jamais desmerecendo, mas comparar o 'boom' de Avatar e seu 'motion capture' nisso não convém.
Imagine que na história do cinema exista…
It's the story of a stupid woman, who happens to be a doctor in space, she also don't know what she wants.
And seriously, what the fuck is wrong with americans and their fucking religion ?
Everything is said.
Great 60-90 min films (for those days when you just don't have the energy to watch a 3 hour masterpiece)
Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of 200+ quality "short" films. Easy…
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
