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…
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…
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…
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…
Saw this again in the 3D Movie Theatre on a cruise I just went on. I had forgotten just how breathtaking it is. It also helped that it was a bit of a windy day so the ship was rocking slightly which actually made me feel like I was floating about in space. Scary.
When something can go wrong, will go wrong, it is what it says in Murphy's Law. Gravity is a pure example of this law. A space mission ends horribly wrong when the space shuttle is hit by debris from satellites, leaving the entire crew dead except Dr. Ryan Stone, and the pilot of the mission. In a fight for survival, full of special effects and a great production, Ryan faces unbelievable situations, and faces his own fear, his sorrows and pains, and demonstrates an incredible will to live. But the film is disappointing. At some points, the plot is so weak that the own character thinks about dying, moreover, I wonder how she can survive being so stupid at times. Otherwise, the cast is great, and the production too.
So, what do you like about being up here?
This movie is not the brilliant drama that it is often perceived as. It should however, be appreciated for what it is: a visual spectacle exemplifying the future of cinema. It's plot devices and dialogue made no contribution to my enjoyment of this film, as much as the production did.
Gravity deserves all the renown it receives for its visual effects, sound, and pretty much all other technical aspects. The production of this film is just amazing, and space felt so real; an entity in its own, almost like a character. The sound vacuums were done very well, and really portrays the bleakness and hopelessness of their debacle, as…
It's astonishing how well this movie works on the small screen, given that it is, in every way, a big screen movie. Best blu-ray of the year.
Tecnicamente, sublime. Pero no me encantó tanto la trama.
Cerita film yang bertema survival ini sebenarnya simple tapi pak Alfonso Cuaron berhasil mengemasnya dengan luar biasa.
Just had to watch it again.
One of the most amazing experiences I've ever had in a movie theater. It's a good movie, but "experiencing" it truly elevates it above most other movie experiences. This is truly a masterpiece in filmmaking, and one I seriously think evolves the medium a few large steps forward. This is one movie I cannot stress enough that needs to be seen on a large screen, in 3D.
Gravity is by far one of the most discussed films of 2013. It is considered to be one of the best films of the year and has recieved high critical appraise nearly everywhere you look. Scores range from perfect to falling a few percent short of the goal with hardly any negativity surrounding the film. When I sat down to watch this film, I expected something extraordinary. With that said, I was not disappointed. Immersing yourself in this film will be equivalent to the feeling you get when you see a person you perceive to be the most beautiful, jaw dropping, human being that you have ever seen. After initial introductions are over, you get to know the person and…
