[Gravity] wants to bring me down

UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
So there's this movie opening tomorrow

31BTwHf.jpg

It seems to be kind of a big deal

Richard Corliss
TIME Magazine
If the film past is dead, Gravity shows us the glory of cinema's future. It thrills on so many levels. And because Cuar‪ón is a movie visionary of the highest order, you truly can't beat the view.
A.O. Scott
New York Times
In a little more than 90 minutes [it] rewrites the rules of cinema as we have known them.
Jocelyn Noveck
Associated Press
As the credits roll, you may find yourself thinking about real space launches you've watched, or watching man walk on the moon, and remembering that feeling of awe at how man ever developed the technology to explore space in the first place.
James Berardinelli
ReelViews
Wow.

Even curmudgeonly old Rex Reed likes it!

As a matter of fact, it's currently sitting at 100% among top critics on Rotten Tomatoes with over 30 reviews, the first film in recent years I can think of to get this type of universal praise.

Here's the part of the OP where I'd usually copy/paste a quick synopsis, but the truth is that the trailers do very little to convey what Gravity is about, and I'd prefer to be kept in the dark before I go in. I did want a place to talk about it after the fact with heavy spoiler tags, though.

Have one of those beautifully shot trailers and let's talk about this film which hits theaters tomorrow.

    "They put in explosions [in the trailer]," said Cuarón, whose film stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock as astronauts struggling in the aftermath of an accident involving a space shuttle. "As we know, there is no sound in space. In the film, we don't do that."

    i thought the trailers for this movie looked really interesting

    cool to hear that it's apparently a good movie too

    I was so excited for this fucking movie when I saw the first trailer.

    Rock hard like a 12 year old on a school bus going down a bumpy dirt road.

    Then I saw the one thing that could completely demolish my boner.

    Oh, it wasnt the sounds that were bugging me.

    It just seemed like every time I saw something for this I was watching an ad for "Screaming and Panicking In Space: The Movie" and it kind of turned me off to it.

    I know that isn't what the film is going to be like, but after the first time my reaction to seeing the trailer before whatever movie I was at became "Ugh, I don't want to watch this again."

    I really hope that in the finished movie, the roles aren't so clearly cut with the female astronaut freaking out and the male astronaut presumably staying calm.

    I mean I pretty much avoid trailers these days for movies I know I'm going to see because I hate spoilers so no

    but I feel like universally high praise says it's unlikely

    What happens is based on a Kessler syndrome-type scenario.

    Whoops, posted before I read your post stating that you hate spoilers.

    That was probably the last one I went into knowing pretty much nothing about it

    I first saw the trailer for this while watching Pacific Rim for the first time. My only response to it was that it was going to be a short movie. Subsequent trailers have me very interested in it and all this positive buzz has pretty much guaranteed that I'll watch it. Probably not this weekend but the next. Fingers crossed at least.

    Because my only reservation about the film is all the positive reviews I've seen comparing it to 2001

    And 2001 is the polar opposite of a movie that is too exciting
