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.

there are only two actors fuck that wheres the alien
Let's get this straight. I loved this movie. It was great! However, I thought it was overrated in some ways. Many critics are it up, and gave it 5 out of 5, which I honesy disagree with. And the fact that it was nominated for best picture. But however, I thought the movie was visually amazing and the story was intense. Although a simple story about survival, it sure kept me at the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed it but definatly wpuldnt give it 5 stars.
"Gravity" is more than a film; it is an experience.
Review In A Nutshell:
An experience that I would never forget. Entering the theatre with exceedingly high expectations, anticipating a heart-stopping experience that would permanently be embedded in me. The film’s music building to extraordinary heights, only to be caught disarmed with a beautiful view of Planet Earth. Silence has filled the theatre, with a single shot of our planet’s rotation, as the voices of our protagonists Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) slowly approach towards our primary point of focus. It was that breathtaking image that Emmanuel Lubezki and Alfonso Cuaron has left for us to absorb that allowed me to detach myself for a small…
I HATED THIS MOVIE. It literally had no plot and Im so done with it. I can respect the creativity to it but other than that just no.
Still stays in my mind for perfection. This is my 5th viewing of “Gravity” and I dare to say that never at the slightest, it rang to settle for anything lesser than a ‘Masterpiece’. “Gravity” holds onto its desire to not only entertain audiences, but also stay devoted to cinema as an art. A superbly dazzling display from “Gravity,” has made ways for attention from serious movie lovers worldwide. “Gravity” is a stellar moving-images from space.
It begins with a line: “Life in space is impossible.” The line probably had a tap on an idea that there is no place like home, which is earth, and too personally I felt like it is a tribute to “The Wizard of Oz”…
Junto con Speed Racer (de un modo muy distinto, claro) es quizás la única película que ha utilizado el digital para crear una puesta en escena que es nueva y al mismo tiempo orgánica a la narración, pero todo eso me da igual porque cuando la veo estoy durante noventa minutos al borde del infarto, el Síndrome de Stendhal y las lágrimas.
Si no la habéis visto daos prisa antes de que el avance de los efectos especiales nos arruine como seres humanos y perdamos la capacidad de amar esto.
The most immersive cinema experience of my entire life.
I was not that fascinated 'bout the story, but you gotta love the special effects.
it went for just a little too long, it lingered on too many things
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…
