Gravity - You Should See It

Postby selderane » Tue Oct 08, 2013 7:26 pm

I wasn't sure of what the think of Gravity when I saw the trailer. I didn't know what I was looking at. Still, I stuck at the back on my head as something I should look out for. Then I read IGN's glowing review and knew I had to catch it. It also didn't hurt that a reviewer in You Tube I followed has equally glowing things to say.

In short, it's a disaster movie in space. But the stakes are so much higher and more interesting. It's even heightened by the faithfulness to zero-g environment and lack of sound. The only things you hear for 95% of the film are what the character itself could actually hear, which makes seeing a space station get obliterated in absolute silence all the more unsettling.

What this silence allows, however, is the score to sit a bit further forward than it might. And it's really quite wonderful. I ordered a copy of it on my way out of the theater.

The film is PG-13 for violence, some strong language, and a little gore (there's a few floating dead bodies). But, really, I don't think kids over 10 will have problems with it. Especially if they're okay with any of the Transformer films.

But, really, it's a great film, and we haven't seen its like in a long time, if ever. Try to catch it in 3D if you can, it's really effective, and I hate 3D.

It's funny, Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted like 12 times about the inconsistencies with reality (later clarifying that he didn't find the movie unenjoyable, but just found it hard not to nitpick) such as the oddity of the ISS being within the same orbit as communication sattelites

You really have to expect that sort of thing. I hope it wasn't that he was actually surprised by that.

Watched it again on my computer without the dizzying 3d to see what I really thought of it. Anyway, yeah I hate this movie. Not very well written, not much story and a not very likeable main character.

The concept of movies in space is something I like a lot but I did not expect there to be so little storyline.
Good acting and great setting but it definately lacks a storyline and therefore there is not much happening...
