I found this flick to be quite stunning. I'd certainly recommend an IMAX 3D viewing. I was riveted throughout. I don't really have any complaints. For what it was, it was pretty spectacular.

Even though I called bullshit on A LOT of things, this movie had me amazed. Sure, they could've done a better job on physics and overall graphics (I always felt like I was watching two actors in front of a green screen instead of two characters in space), it still rocked.
Sandra Bullock? Omg. When she takes her suit off, I couldn't help but notice her body. Flat stomach, amazing legs, relatively decent sized ass. I know every other male in theaters was also staring at her like I was. She looked stunning.

I know that wouldn't make sense with the "seriousness" of the movie that they went for, but in my mind it made sense because of the ridiculousness.

Overall, it was only a good movie that is filmed great. I was totally into it and it was intense the whole time, but once I left the theater, it wasn't something that stuck with. I reflected on a couple parts with my gf on the walk to the car, but we didn't talk about the movie ever again. Usually after watching a movie, we talk about either what was awesome or what was shitty in different moments throughout the evening (whether good or bad).

Default Re: Gravity was such a good movie.

If you guys remember the part where Clooney comes back to Bullock in the space capsule, opens the door & then hops in, but it turns out that it's just Bullock's hallucination, the fact that so many people accepted in the theater that that was plausible bothered me. People actually applauded as Clooney hopped in.
Even though it turned out to be a hallucination for Sandra B, I felt like this movie proved how stupid people are. They simply accepted that it's possible to just hold your breath in space to survive.

That part was a little disorienting to me. Things were happening left and right and I was trying to follow along then when that happened... it wasn't that I accepted it, I was just sitting and trying to figure it all out. It didn't hit me that it was what it was, but I'd venture to say most of the audience was just trying to figure out how it was so.

Sometimes it's tough for me to come in threads about movies that aim for some sense of realism. They make me feel ignorant. The part you're talking about seemed pretty obvious but to hear some other users here criticize certain space minutiae always makes me wonder, "Did I miss, like, fourteen general ed. astrophysics classes I was supposed to take somewhere along the lines?"

Aside from the part you mentioned, I'm not sure I could have explained or noticed any other real scientific inconsistencies. I mean, I assume the inconsistencies were there, I'm just impressed when it appears so easy for other folks to point them out and criticize the movie for it.

I was so happy that it was a hallucination because the moment he opened the door, she would have been dead without her helmet on.

I'm not either (in fact, Bullock is somebody I usually avoid movies of), but neither of them are problematic or annoying in the movie. Any complaints of the movie should not come from their acting.

I enjoyed it. Forget all the physics inaccuracies...it was very fast paced and emotionally touching.
