Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
average humour is subjective, i guess. in no way did I love the movie, but i didn't hate it. I enjoy ****ty light hearted rom's though.
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
So Gravity: Great visuals, but one of the main characters apparently doesn't understand the concept of an orbit, has crashed 'every simulator' they've ever been in, has to look through a manual to fly a spacecraft, and badly hits their head while trying to put out a fire because they don't understand the concept of force. And they get to be an astronaut. Oh and the astronauts don't even know the basics about each other (or the specifics of their own mission) even though they've probably trained months, if not years, for this specific thing. Standards have really fallen at NASA.
//But I still liked the movie. The physics of spacetravel itself were very spot on (most of the inaccurate stuff was necessary for the script, like the space stations and debris all sharing the same orbit and being almost next to each other....)
Yea but my Facebook not someone else's...
It was a movie, not a documentary you nerd. I thought it was very enjoyable. Probably one of the best visual movies ever made.
Are the performances of Bullock and Clooney as good as critics have said? If so I might go and see it. If not, I'm not sure I can find the motivation, hasn't the whole stranded in space thing been done to death? E.g. I thought Sunshine (though I appreciate the science behind it is flawed) was a great, and relatively recent, example of this sort of thing being done extremely well. Such an underrated film.
Its as if Alfonso Cuaron heard all the talk about TV being the new cinema and all that and decided "nope, cinema is cinema"
It falls a tad short of 2001 and Solaris when it comes to this genre but on its own, just bloody awesome.
Just watched The Dictator.
Absolute Bull. Remotely funny here and there, but falls flat otherwise.
Gravity. The re-entry scene has to be one of the greatest things I've seen in cinema, I was literally unable to move for the duration. So so good.

Utter crap. I wasnt able to watch the whole movie. Unexpected brainfart from someone like Guillermo del Toro. The bad news is he is working on Pacific Rim 2.
A Hijacking (Kapringen).
Randomly chose this to wash bad taste of the above mentioned **** and hell, it worked, Great (danish) movie.
I saw Stardust last night. It's awful.
