Viewed this as part of an amazing screening with Pam Grier at the Alamo Drafthouse. What a night, and what a film!

I'd only seen this once previously and considered it a lesser Marvel film. After a great first half, the pacing gets weird and breezes over Cap's WWII battles. But knowing this the second time, and with the connective tissue of The Winter Soldier continuing the story, I enjoyed this far more on the second viewing.
I've been waiting anxiously seven years for Alfonso Cuarón to bless us again. It's been that long since Children Of Men, a film so phenomenal and powerful that it changed the way I view and think about movies. It was one of my first HD-DVD purchases, and went on to become the most watched in my collection until the format eventually succumbed to Blu-Ray.
Gravity is likewise an astounding and absolutely gorgeous film, and regardless of how you may end…
