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…
Gravity is visually stunning. It's the best looking film I have ever seen, probably aided by the fact that I saw it in 3D IMAX. Aside from the visuals, Gravity excels in thrilling the audience with near misses for the lead character played by Sandra Bullock. Bullock gives a tremendous performance as the film hinges on her character for much of the film. The audience is terrified at the possible fate of Ryan Stone, and Bullock deserves much of the credit for that. George Clooney also delivers a great performance, being able to incorporate charm, humor, and wisdom in the character of Matt Kowalski.
Alfonso Cuarón has once again deliverd a film that uses thrills to aid the deliverance of…
The whole thing gave me a giant panic attack, but it is pretty marvelous overall.
Intense! Gripping! I watched it with a friend and we could not stop from making numerous exclamations out loud. Almost lost in all of the suspense was the powerful story of rebirth that happened in space for one of our protagonists. The rebirth imagery revealed in one scene was profound, as was the scene with floating tears and a wordless prayer of desperation. The visitation that followed- was it oxygen deprivation or something deeper, even spiritual? You almost know that if he/she ever does make it back home, the transformation through fire that occurred in space would change a life forever.
Tercera vez q la veo, tercera vez que me deja sin aliento. Creo que podría verla una vez al mes y no dejaría de sucederme. No lo haré, por que tengo otras cosas (no necesariamente mejores) que hacer, pero podría.
It might have been because I was with friends in the theater the day I watched this, but I couldn't see it as a serious movie. I kept giggling and thinking what an anticlimax this movie was time after time. I know it was supposed to be serious and scary, but all I could see was mindless floating around. I don't recommend this to anyone who is used to fast paced movies.
但最佳影片、女主 ? NOT AT ALL!!
This film made me realize one thing: I'd be very sad if something were to happen to the ISS.
“At 600KM above planet Earth the temperature fluctuates between +258 and -148 degrees Fahrenheit. There is nothing to carry sound. No air pressure. No oxygen. Life in space is impossible.”
A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after a catastrophe destroys their shuttle and leaves them adrift in orbit.
Winner of 7 Academy Awards this movie will draw in and capture you from start to finish. With its breath taking visual art and exciting story line will leave you on the edge of your seat. The movie was well written and well-acted. This is a must see movie!
I'll sum up this movie in a few words: simple, enthralling, entertaining, beautiful..
I need not say any more... This movie was an experience that is meant to be enjoyed on am imax screen. Amazing performances by Clooney and Bullock
