The director seems to be slipping. That or he shouldn't have touched the sci-fi genre. Clooney plays another cool character and Sandra here really put in her A game. Nothing spectacular to view it again and again. It has thematic's of the importance of spending time with loved ones and emptiness of space. Had a couple of tense moments and gorgeous cinematography, other than that ajust another average science fiction movie.

A film about overcoming fears and finding your way, both literally and figuratively. Sandra Bullock's character must overcome her fear of living without her child and she must find her way home, from space and from work. Instead of just driving around in circles, she must go home and live her life. Though some thing tragic happened in the past, don't let it define you. One of the few films out there where the 3-D technology really enhances the moviegoing experience. Sandra Bullock gives an Academy worthy performance as an astronaut stuck in space. And George Clooney plays himself, which is always brilliant.

Overrated. This is a pretty decent movie but it is just simply too unrealistic but it tries to be realistic. It starts off incredible with some great action, some scenes we have never seen before. Then, as the story unravels, it becomes more and more unbelievable. Clooney is superb in the supporting role. There are a few scenes in this movie that are incredible. But, Mission to Mars is better.

In visual terms "Gravity" is overwhelming with those images of the Earth. The infinity and immensity of the universe is beautifully put into the picture . The insignificance of man in this intolerable environment gives you a constant tightness . However, I think that you only get that overwhelming feeling when you watch this movie in the cinema. On a normal LCD TV in the living room there's not much left of this space spectacle. And that's quite a damper on the expected experience because the story on its own isn't really that much of a deal. I think it's a great achievement to create such an entertaining film with this simple story and only two characters constantly on the screen.
I sat almost the entire movie on the edge of the sofa cause of the tension. The movie has a surprisingly …

There are a few points of view regarding the hidden meanings but here’s what I think:
The film is about being reborn both physically and spiritually. This is evident by one, if not the most captivating scene where Bullock takes of her space suit and slowly floats into a fetal position, with wires and tubes representing the umbilical chord and the spaceship itself serving as the womb. Upon landing on Earth, Sandra Bullock exits the spaceship, like a bay exiting the womb and is swims through water eventually reaching the sandy shore. From here we see her lying down, then crawling and finally walking as a baby would. We see her physical evolution here but her spiritual revolution takes place before she is born (crash lands on Earth), as she finds her faith again which was lost after …

Many movies spend their time focusing on visuals and sound. No movie suits this case better than Gravity, which had a strong start with amazing detail and auditory background.
If there is one thing great I have to say about Gravity, it is the visuals. The makers of the film knew how to execute the visuals absolutely gorgeously. The same goes with the sound: crisp and perfect.
Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the story’s pace, characters, acting, and overall grabbing of one’s attention. The story was unbearably slow paced and lacked coherence. It took the character’s almost forever to actually do something. The characters had no backstory to defend their developmental attributes. Plus the acting was way too melodramatic especially on Sandra Bullock’s part. Half the …

I must say normally I am not a big fan of that all movies have to be 3d lately. But with Gravity it was different. The effects where amazing and Sandra Bullock her acting completely sucked me into the movie. I cannot wait to see it again.&nbsp;

Gravity didn't make me bored. Its really a great movie. If anybody wants to get the perfect satisfaction of this move, he has to watch it going theater. Home theater is not so perfect for this movie. Sound, special effects, script everything is outstanding.

Probably the best film I have ever seen from a technical standpoint. It was hard to imagine what I was watching wasn't real at times. Also, this is how 3D should be done. This is probably the only time 3D has actually brought me deeper into a movie, instead of being distracting.My favorite scene is one of the more quiet ones as the Sandra Bullock character reflects on her seemingly hopeless situation. It was one of the most moving scenes I have seen at the movies. Hopefully 'Gravity' will …

There are movies that you only want to see once. Usually it's because it was so terrible. Gravity on the other hand, is one that engages you both in its scope of cinematography and the simpleness of the plot's concept. Sleek and sometimes over the top, Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuaron has landed squarely in the Oscar talk. &nbsp;&nbsp; Sandra Bullock does a wonderfully balanced turn, bringing her character's emotional states and thought processes to the audience in a way that is easy, and …

(Owen McKenna Rio Rancho, NM)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&nbsp;viewing it&nbsp;on a home theatre system. I guess we will see next week.
