talk about the worst first mission ever,
This review is from: Gravity [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Went to see this movie the other night on impulse and without knowing anything at all. Not a huge fan of either of the leads but for some reason i just had this idea in my head that it would be worth it. I had no idea what i was in for but i treated myself to an IMAX ticket. I sat down and got comfly with some popcorn...
The start sequence is so amazing and probably one of the only place for you go grab a breath before all hell breaks loose, literally. By the time the movie was over i had not even touched my pop corn and had almost torn the arm of the chair from the tension. My heart was racing but i was smiling my head off and wanted to watch it all over again. I could have watched another 5 hours of this movie yet it was perfect the length it is.
I am simply dazzled and amazed by the work that went in by everyone involved in making this, there were no short cuts or cheap shots. the acting is beyond the call of duty and must have been such a mind job. Bullock is outstanding and deserves a massive reward for her performance. Clooney just stole my heart from the beginning and fit into his role nice and snug.
Seriously, do yourself a favour and treat yourself to watching this superb movie with a huge screen and roaring sound that shakes the ground. I am most certainly going to see this again. Then im getting the bluray.

Space is a very quiet and lonely place. Especially during the modern day era, without communications you're basically on your own. They captured this perfectly. Space is this huge endless thing, when you understand this you'll appreciate the movie a lot more, because to me they nailed pretty much everything perfectly. It also did have some suspense and at the edge of your seat stuff.
And of course this movie had a story, it was a when things go very wrong affair. Introducing more characters would have ruined the story, with no communications, and no way physically to get more astronauts up there safety with the amount of debris floating around from the satellites what they did was fine.

You do realise she was only floating around in space for a few hours right? And during that time she entered several space stations. The spacesuit would offer a degree of protection, much in the way it offered a degree of protection to astronauts who have walked on the moon for hours in the past or have spent a bit of time outside on a space walk doing repairs. You're not going to die from it.
Also I'm pretty sure she changed into a Russian suit onboard the station, the name tag on the front suggested so. Even if it wasn't shown. Though her oxygen only went low when she was near the station not before. They made no mention of '1 hour of oxygen' in the movie.

First things first, you don't speak for everyone. Secondly I was pointing out when you mentioned that nothing happens that Space is indeed a big place. Other points were mentioned above, no need to repeat those.
What were you expecting from this movie exactly? Explosions? Gun fights? This movie deviates from the norm and offers something different. Also you're pretty much rambling in your response to me.

Most enjoyable reading all the responses to "Snooze". I think the main thing here is, and I've noticed this a lot on discussion forums, that there are certain people who post "odd" comments simply for a reaction and start a debate. Look, the film has a clutch of Oscars, Globe and BAFTA awards. It is a good film. A very good film. So all the strange comments are made by, what are they called...Trolls. Personally, if I was an Amazon customer, I would simply ignore them and read the reviews of more intelligent and reasoned film goers. I mean, you can write a negative review which is readable and may command respect. Reviews that just aim to trash something should be treated with the contempt they deserve. I hope that helps buyers trying to make up their minds about whether or not to purchase this brilliant film.
