Just returned from the movies where I watches Gravity
with my sister. One of the few movies I actually wanted to try watch in 3D but seems like we came too late for that. Only had in 2D. But that's just a minor detail, the enjoyment of the movie was still great.
The movie suffered a few places from the Hollywood clichés and sometimes I couldn't help but wonder exactly how accurate they show how space and spaceships and such works. Especially one thing could easily have been cut out completely without the movie losing anything from that. But that is mostly minor.
Overall the movie was really great despite clichés. It had the effect on me I came for. The experience of the true issues of space. We are so used to spaceship battles in sci-fi and all, where we often forget the actual physics of space and gravity. This movie reminded us of that. The extreme claustrophobic feeling of being surrounding by nothing but empty space, the spacesuit you are caught within your only safe heaven and your prison to survive. I kept wondering how they managed to make those awesome effects of non-gravity, just floating like that.
I like all the characters, heck, even the characters we didn't get to know. Such details and no one overdone or made as a stereotype you were actually able to see them as people and not just actors. An object floating by on the screen telling you so much about the person who owned it, without ever being pointed out or addressed directly. I liked that. The movie was really exciting during all the moments meant to get your pulse going and especially the climax was tense yet so beautiful. Wonderful choice in music too. And gosh that ending. Just perfect. They had sense for so many details to portray the whole thing as believable as possible. And it definitely worked on me.
I can recommend this movie, 3D or 2D. 2D doesn't leave you feel like something is missing and I didn't see too much that only would have worked in 3D. Some short parts could have been neat, like the POV scenes from within the helmet. But overally you can easily save the money and just enjoy it in 2D. But like with many other great movies, I can suggest check it on the big screen.
Something I noticed: They used the emptiness of space for plenty of scenes in completely silence. In those scenes the audience were completely silent too. That's a rare experience. Create your own visitor map!
