I was hoping for some nice conversation about what looks like a very engaging (and well done, science wise) movie..

And this is the thread we got.


/This is why we can't have nice things...

FeedTheCollapse: is there more to this than the trailer lets on? It doesn't look bad, but it looks like a movie that would have a hard time stretching its plot out beyond 30 or 40 minutes unless there was more to it than "Stranded in space."


What bothers me is the choice of actors like Clooney and Bullock. They just don't seem fit for the role, and they're too "hollywood perfect" for me to take the scenario of the movie seriously. There's plenty of unknown, talented actors out there. Would have been nice to see someone else have a chance in a major production.

That was my thought on it. Looks like a great episode for a sci fi show, but I don't see how they could make a movie out of it.

It's supposedly one of the most brilliantly designed space movies of all time.

The general thought from reviewers has been "This will be the best-looking, most intense sci-fi movie you'll ever see, even though the plot gets a little saccharine in the final act."


Or, I like this bit from a review on CBSNews:

"The verdict? "Gravity" is cornball as all get-out, totally formulaic, andincredibly, amazingly, stunningly incredible.I'm out of superlatives."
