I love Honest Trailers.

I enjoyed watching it in the theater in 3D, but I don't have any desire to see it again or to buy it.  Some movies have a lot of replay value, some don't.  Gravity was a very cool visual spectacle, but once you've seen it there's not really much depth there to draw you back in.

I haven't seen it yet, and now I feel bad I'll probably watch it on my tablet.

The trailer leads me to wonder once again why/how so many people including astronauts and physicists gave it high marks on its physics and accuracy about space.

They got the physics right.  Sandra Bullock's character would never have made it into space in a million years, though.  Apart from not knowing her job, she wouldn't have come close to making it through the psych evaluation.

If that were true, then why did Clooney keep getting pulled away from her AFTER the tether between them went taught.  There should have been a MOMENT of tension between them, then he would have begun floating BACK TOWARDS HER.  Not trying to be a dick, really just want to know.  That was the point where I was going WTF.

//still enjoyed the damn movie

You are TOTALLY right, I mean thank God we have sane astronauts, like Lisa Nowak.

... those events had a huge impact on the astronaut selection program.  While he's not specific about it, Chris Hadfield speaks at length about the gauntlet now involved in making the cut.

George Clooney was actually not real. He was a projection of her subconscious.

Ooh I love playing the Fight Club Game. Let me try:

ET wasn't real. He was a figment of Elliot's emergent schizophrenia.

Almost the whole thing of Flight of the Navigator was a coma dream/delusion after the kid fell into the ravine.  The FBI guys were the doctors who pocked and prodded, the hot girl who helped him escape was actually the nurse who would sponge bathe him, and the time-skip was his fear of how long he'd be unconscious.

[SPOILERS, MAYBE]  

The thing that bothered me the most was when Clooney is at the end of the tether and Bullock is holding the chute lines connected to the ISS. He unties himself because he'll "pull her with him".  He's already stopped, relative to her. With no thrust or wind resistance, it would have taken short tug to pull him back. He didn't have to sacrifice himself. Not that I care he died, but it was a stupid, and physically unnecessary, way for him to go. Sharif went out in style though.

Wait, what??  So, in your opinion he never existed?  So, are you saying she SELF-RESCUED out of her initial spin, and managed to fly herself back to the Space Shuttle in a suit with no jets or other means of propulsion?  In terms of violations of physics, that's even worse.

Or are you saying she imagined the whole thing?  Was she even an astronaut, or just some woman who nearly drowned wearing a tank top and boy shorts and hallucinated EVERYTHING?  Are you sure SHE existed at all, or maybe the whole damn movie was just OUR hallucination, sitting en masse in a darkened theater?  C'mon, what's the point of ridiculousness here?  It can be pushed as far as you like.

Imagine the theater lights go down, and everyone's sitting there with their popcorn, when all of a sudden the walls of the theater themselves completely and noiselessly collapse into splinters and the movie's still being projected onto the screen but when it goes out the movie does and you will too and everyone knows it...nothing left! All Gone!  That's what actually happened.

Thans, fwiw, the Honest Trailer spoiled that already with its shot of Bullock walking alone on some grassy plain. I was honestly hoping that she'd run straight into Apes on horseback.

this film is crap. watched it once, thought it was a comedy from the opening shot where clooney is flitting around, to the bit where (spoiler!) he knocks on the window. hilarious. albeit unintentionally. oscar? hell no...
