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…
I blacked out and fell and hit my head on the toilet halfway through so I'll just give it the same rating as last time
A perfect example of cinema as a visual medium as opposed to a storytelling medium, Gravity lives and dies based on its effects, which in this instance are phenomenal. The lead performance from Sandra Bullock and the simplistic story are still superb, but ultimately, Gravity is a film that simply needs to be watched, not always listened to!
This felt like picking up a book and only being able to read one chapter from the middle. I had no context, I didn't know or care about the characters, it was too short and I was confused.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This is not usually the type of film that I would watch, and truthfully, I found it too be boring; it was lacking information that the audience should know about the characters especially the main character herself. Although the story was confusing, I did enjoy and admire how the director created the feeling that makes the audience feels like they are the ones in space; using many point of view shots that I found to be interesting. From what I understood, this film is basically about a astronaut name Ryan and also include her commander who is a veteran astronaut that unfortunate does not make it( sorry for the spoiler alert.) I felt like to understand this film, you really…
In space nobody can hear Sandra Bullock vocalize her character's internal monologue.
El segundo visionado la mejora un 200%
solid... nothing special, don't deserve this grade...
Not a space-time movie but still as I've told many times before, space has always been my favorite themes.
Gravity is a very bold film where the director instead of focusing on special effects to "wow" the audience, has chosen to portray Bullock's will to live. And in that feat, I can say undoubtedly that he has been successful.
The originality and the lack of idealism really played a huge role- not to mention the lack of sound in space- to legitimize the structure of Gravity. But, in some cases it just got to be annoying. For example. around the intermission of the movie, there was a part where Bullock is breathing heavily. With the lack of sound in space- and henceforth no sound effects- I had to listen to her inhale and exhale for over ten minutes. This proved to be really annoying to me and I'm still trying to figure out why.
Fate is a crazy, inevitable thing, ain't it?
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
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…
