Early reviews are raving about how good this film is. Of 7 reviews on Metacritic, it currently holds a 99, and stands at a mighty 100% on Rottentomatoes. Based on the trailers, it's a must-see for me. I also think the world of Alfonso Cuaron as a director, which too is a big plus walking into this. I think, personally, we're looking into the eyes of a gem. 09/03/2013

When has Cuaron steered things wrong? I'm still wondering how they get a full length film out of being stranded in space, but if anyone can do it - he's the man I want. Considering the wasteland that September usually brings this could well be the bright spot in the fall movie season. 09/09/2013

The last film I saw in theaters was Insidious 2. It disappoints me that I wasn't able to check out Prisoners, Rush, and Don Jon (I will eventually! Before 2013 comes to an end, for sure!)... but Gravity is a film I will most definitely be seeing this weekend. In IMAX 3D, as a matter of fact. Super excited.

Given all the great reviews here (and elseware), I think I'll have to check this out. For once I'm actually looking forward to 3D - though I really wish there was an IMAX theater in my general area... oh well, it's looking like this is going to be one of the better movies of the fall, if not for the year. 10/07/2013

The singular point where the I-MAX film format, 3D visual technology, and the film 'Gravity', all converge is arguably the zenith of modern film making. Director, Alfonso Cuaron, takes full advantage of the I-max format right from the opening long-shot; an awe inspiring view of planet Earth as seen from the space shuttle's orbit. His use of
3D effects is also judiciously applied - you never feel like a scene was set up just to deliver a particular three dimensional thrill. In fact, they appear so subtlety; you become immersed, and not so surprised by their presence.

Because the story is lined up with the current public exposure to space exploration and the related technology, 'Gravity' has a near documentary feel to it; as opposed to a lot of recent sci-fi offerings that rely heavily on special effects of mass destruction or other-worldly invaders. I'm no astro-physicist, so I don't know if the science applied here is spot-on, but it certainly feels right and that is all that is important with a film like this.

Sandra Bullock delivers an Oscar-worthy performance here as the lead in a very small cast. She takes us along the emotional rollercoaster that her character experiences as events unfold. While some may find parts of the film a bit slow, I was so engrossed; the 91 minutes flew by all too quickly for me. If I were to quibble, I do think the film has a couple lapses, such as the root cause of the disaster that befalls Bullock and her crew mates. Saying the Russians caused it seems so lame and dated in this day in age. Hey, here's a thought: how about we actually have a screw up of our own making be the cause for a change?

The upshot here is that this film really should be seen in I-MAX. I will probably take a look at it at some point in 2D, just out of curiosity. For the most part, all of the scenes take place in the boundless expanse that is space and I-MAX is the only format I know of that truly gives a viewer a sense of that.

This movie was good. The special effects were amazing and I like scripts that call for very limited characters. It gives you the chance to really seethe acting ability of the main star. The story line was decent but the only thing I had a problem with was the unnecessary outfit they had Bullock in. Don't get me wrong, ill look at her in a wifebeater and ass shorts  all day but it seemed a distraction from everything else. Maybe im just a pervert.

Obviously you just have a dirty mind - no doubt about it. Seriously, I still have Gravity as my favorite film of last year (so far) - but I have to wonder if it will hold up as good viewing it at home as it did in the theater (where, for the second time ever, 3D actually made the film better). 02/17/2014

Chris, I also rate Gravity as my favorite film of last year. I thought the special effects were great. I am hoping to pick up the blue ray on the 25th. I have some friends that want to get together and watch it, but I too wonder if they will appreciate it as much as I did viewing it on a home theatre system. I guess we will see next week.
