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…
I am happy to have finally seen this movie. While I really enjoyed it, I think it would have been a lot better if I saw it in IMAX. Regardless, this is a very unconventional thriller/action film that it necessary to see if you enjoy action. If you think you know what this movie will be like, it's safe to say you don't. Between the beautiful score and excellent sound design, this movie will engross you right from the start. Would I see it again? Maybe, but for now it feels like a hit it and quit it kinda movie, but it's unforgettable.
Very rarely we get to see a film so touching, heartbreaking and visually stunning. It is a breathtaking experience in the history of cinema, which must be seen by everyone in the world. Cauron's masterpiece, and sandra's best film to date. This film is like a delecious ice cream, you can't stop eating. Absolutely breathtaking.
While drawn with a simple plot, Gravity is nothing short of a technical gold standard (both in visuals and sound) complemented by a breathtaking performance by Sandra Bullock. It is an exciting, suspenseful story of survival that transcends the world itself.
It was worth it to see in the theaters
Best seen on the biggest screen possible, this space survival drama has an amazing, enveloping soundtrack and the special effects look real. Physics aside, this film is heartstopping, if thin on plot- but does it need to be any more?
As a movie this isn't that great but as a cinema experience it was fantastic. Some scenes on the big screen were exceptional but the storyline is very basic
Sandra Bullock just can't catch a break in this one. Some awesome effects and a unique premise make this worth a watch in itself. That opening scene, a single take, is wonderful.
I do have a bone to pick with some dodgy physics and unrealistic depictions despite it framing itself as realistic though, and I don't think the same film would have been met with the same hype critically speaking if it'd come from another director.
Fun fact: The Indian's Mars Orbiter Mission cost less than this film.
Gravity breezes through without even the slightest pause. It pulls you in at every turn without hesitation yet savors each moment. The harshness of space seems all too real. Don't. Let. Go.
Gravity non delude le aspettative anzi le esalta! Migliore postproduzione del 2013, incredibilmente riesce a mettere in ombra anche quella mastodontica e spettacolare di Pacific Rim, in una parola INCREDIBILE, Cuaron nello stesso film riesce a portare alla sua massima espressione l'uso della stereoscopia e della soggettiva "ful CG" in un film che a parer mio rimarra' unico nel suo genere
Come se non bastasse a livello emotivo e' un vero e proprio "Roller Coaster" con una storia tanto lineare quanto criptica e poetica, all'uscita dal cinema ho avuto il cuore in gola per i sucessivi 40 minuti!!!!
CRIMINE PUNIBILE CON L'ERGASTOLO NON VEDERLO IN IMAX (a Pioltello o in viale Sarca) o comunque non vederlo al cinema, significa rovinarsi un film che' e' molto piu' vicino all' "esperienza" che al semplice film
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…
