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…
Wow, that is something that must be seen to believed. It’s some serious next level filmmaking and the proof that you can use lots of show-offy special effects to IMPROVE a story!
Yes, script wise the movie is pretty simple, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s a straight forward survival weak-person-becomes-fighter story without any unnecessary fat. Even though the way how really almost EVERYTHING goes wrong for Bullock’s character over the course of the movie becomes a little bit laughable (At one point I expected her to poke her eye out and get diarrhea), it definitely keeps you invested.
But still, if this movie would have been shot in the 70s or 80s, with some actors just dangling on…
Sandra Bullock reaches for stuff.
What was a schmalzy forced script was turned into an epic film that doesn't let you breathe until you're leaving the cinema. The sound, the effects, the cinematography, it all creates a heart-pounding, 100% immersive film unlike any other.
The plot and characters in it are pretty basic and standard, but like Avatar, Gravity is a technical marvel that is simply dazzling to look at. It was an awesome experience watching it for the first time.
Film que se aguanta bastante bien con un(a) actor y medio, (que para una actriz que sale podrían haber encontrado a otra más agradable) y que sin ofrecer nada nuevo te entretiene.
First viewing on the small screen, third overall. Aside from the obvious advantages of a gigantic screen and a high-grade sound system, this loses absolutely nothing.
Still some of the best effects I've ever seen.
Still intense and impossible to look away from.
Still beautifully acted and emotionally resonant.
Still one of the best films of the decade.
Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity, is a film that i still remember sitting down in that theatre and just being in complete awe and being blown away by at the cinema. This film is truly a gorgeous visual experience. This is largely due to Alfonso's brilliant direction that always puts you right in the center of the film, I truly felt as if I was on this journey with Sandra Bullock. There is also Emmanuel Lubezki's jaw dropping gorgeous cinematography. The visuals in this film, is the best I have ever seen. But after all I said, what makes this film truly memorable is it's deep meaning about rebirth and the will to survive. Gravity is truly a beautiful film.
Biggest waste of my time and money since Counter Strike: GO. Only difference is that i somewhat enjoyed CS. Fuck you to who ever thought it was so good.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is where I really wish there were a private notes box for our diaries.
I wasn't all that impressed with Gravity. Perhaps it was that I watched it on TV, perhaps it was (for me) a lack or realism. Perhaps a lot of things. But maybe, just maybe, it also had something to do with the fact that nowhere does it say this is based on the book by Tess Gerritsen.
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…
