Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity"



(Yes, I realize this was discussed in a thread from yesterday, but knowing this board, that one will eventually get buried...)

I saw it when you originally posted it, but forgot about it. Apologies.

And if you don't think I get emotionally vested in movies, you haven't paid any attention to my posts in movie threads. I get very invested emotionally, it's about the only thing I want in a movie - to make me feel something. I'm especially fond of movies that make me sad or particularly angry. In fact, I think you and I have been on the same side of some of those discussions with others.

I didn't find Gravity scary. I did find it intense, thrilling, suspenseful, and at times sad.
I don't actually think for one second that you think film is purely an intellectual exercise. I just wanted to destroy your comeback with logic.

The following actresses all were offered and declined the lead role in Gravity before Bullock accepted:

Angelina Jolie (twice), Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lopez, Rachel Weisz, Marion Cotillard, Carey Mulligan, Blake Lively, Scarlett Johansson, and Olivia Wilde.

Oops. They are all probably kicking themselves now.

Where'd you see this?

Not saying it's not true, just shocked so many wouldn't jump at chance to work with AC.

But, I'm glad as hell they didn't go with the above list. It's weird bc I'm not a Bullock fan, but her age, demeanor or whatever just seems to fit more in line with a doctor selected for a special mission simply based on her professional expertise being an asset to NASA.

I'm always disappointed when movies are less than 2 hours worth of entertainment.

Yes, the idea is terrifying. However, the movie is not a horror movie. It's supposed to be intense, thrilling, suspenseful... any of those I'd accept. Scariest movie ever, no.
Scary depends on what you are scared OF.

I read a little blurb that got into the technical aspects of how he used a new way to do it, and still don't understand in the least. Something about a bubble.

Genius.

Ah. Sorry. I was intentionally vague to avoid giving away details, but I guess that left my comment unclear. I liked the intensity, the part that drove me nuts was...

I didnt like it at all. There was no plot. There was almost no script. There were numerous suspension of disbelief, eyerolling moments.

It was like they took the last 20 minutes of a film and stretched it out to feature length.

It looked to me like some suit said, "We can charge more for 3D movies, make me a 3D movie", so someone did it, pasting in some floating doodads in post production

I actually was thinking halfway through that the film was rather boring. It was just visuals and nothing else.

I'll repost what I posted to my Facebook account:

Just saw "Gravity 3D" in IMAX. Some impressive visuals in space. From the camera's perspective up there, so round and perfect and tantalizingly close... And in addition to Sandra Bullock's butt in Spandex shorts, the view of Earth was cool, too!
