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.

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 encourage more filmmakers to use this medium.http://litbloc.com/catego ry/latest-movies/

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. 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 (as I had thought it might be) not overdone. I'd highly recommend to see this movie if you haven't already done so. I also however have no desire to see 2.5 hours of watching someone being stranded in space again no matter how fantastic the special effects might be. Ok well maybe for the special effects.

(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 viewing it on a home theatre system. I guess we will see next week.

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).

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.

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.
