Thread: Gravity

  1. #1

    Gravity

    Is as good as they say it is. Never walked out of a cinema and wanted to kiss the ground before - this one made me want to.

    Has to be seen in 3D - there are basically 3 main characters, one played by Sandra Bullock, the other George Clooney, and the 3rd space itself.

    Recommended.

    No problem - its not really a sci-fi movie - more just a blockbuster with about 200 hundred edge of the seat moments in it. I really don't know where films are going to have to go to top the use of special effects in this, its just on another level to anything I've seen in that department. Some will possibly criticise the plot but the rest of it is amazing.

    Sandra said each scene was scripted with fishing line as where she had to put her hands and feet etc. It was the hardest movie to shoot from that perspective. She had to wait until the movie was over to see what she and Clooney had done.

    Just saw it last night. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole thing. It was like a 90 minute rollercoaster ride. There wasn't much in the way of a plot and the backstory was a little overwrought, but my God, the special effects were amazing. And it was the first 3D movie I've seen that was truly meant for 3D. Definitely a great movie experience, all the way up until the credits roll.

    I'll have to track down that interview - I've never really liked her as an actress but if someone tops what she's done in this for the Oscar next year I will want to see it.

    Whatever floats your boat. Just wash your bunghole first for his sake.

    Saw this last night in 3D, baked out of my mind. It's a little implausible at times (like all big movies), but the graphics are truly breathtaking and the 3D effects are actually legit. Couple that with some good acting by Clooney and Bullock (two people I'm not crazy about), and you've got a winner.

    There's a reason this got a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. Go see it, preferably in 3D. It's worth the extra few bucks.

    Thanks, you've made me want to see it. 98% on rotten tomatoes is a TD.
