|Wow, that is pretty damned positive.|
Uh oh... James Cameron Calls Gravity the “Best Space Film Ever Done”|
“I was stunned, absolutely floored. I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time … What is interesting is the human dimension. Alfonso and Sandra working together to create an absolutely seamless portrayal of a woman fighting for her life in zero gravity.”
New trailer. Err...Holy fuck!|
The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
|Having watched all of the trailers in this thread I can't wait for October! Thanks for posting 'em guys!|
First minute of that trailer was scary: it's a (completely irrational, considering my position) nightmare of mine to be adrift in space - see Space 2001, the shot of blokey after HAL kicks him off into space.... oh my god. |
But it kinda lost it for me when it showed her amongst other people et al. Still, looks very interesting!
Except I cannot stand Sandra Bullock.
|I saw the trailer for this before Pacific Rim at the IMAX. Looked good, very convincing, but I wasn't convinced by the drama / peril aspect.|
LB, you really are a massive geek.
That looks superb.|
Is Sandra Bullock's panicked breathing already a meme of some sort?
The trailers I've seen at the cinema were extremely impressive and by the sounds of it the final film is pretty damn epic.|
Before the film comes out though, can a mod change the thread title the extremely talented Alfonso Cuaron directed this, not Alfred!
This space left intentionally blank.
|I'm not going to watch any more trailers for this. I know I want to see it, and I don't want any of the (stunning) space shots to be ruined. I remember going to see Children of Men without knowing anything about it, and was absolutely floored. His 'one shot' takes are brilliant, can't wait to see more.|
Can't fackin wait to see this, really hope it makes up for the major disappointment that was Elysium. |
I've only watched the very first trailer, so thankfully I haven't spoiled too many of the supposed fantastic shots and sequences.
The opening scene is one continuous 13 minute shot, I love shit like that, especially when most other big budget movies are edited and cut so friggin awfully.
Nov 8th needs to hurry the hell up.
@neems It was alright, but after District 9 I really thought Blomkamp would be a director to keep an eye on, yet Elysium was predictable and filled with poorly shot action scenes. It's worth a watch, but keep your hype levels in check. |
Gravity on the other hand seems to be getting praise from almost every review source, I'm hoping it'll be pretty darned special.
|Managed to get tickets to next month's London Film Festival IMAX screening before the booking site went tits up|
STAY BOW-LEGGED & THICK
Saw the trailer a few weeks back and was impressed but...|
No space titties or ray guns?

SFX's review, 5/5, no spoilers if you've watched the trailers:|
Not that this should be any guage on film quality, and is not likely to sta this way, but wow:|
|Yeah it still has 95 on Metacritic from 17 reviews. Damn impressive. I hadn't heard of it at all until I spotted it on the Metacritic front page, actually. Looks excellent.|
|Can't believe we have to wait until 8th November in the UK!|
|Never heard of this until randomly wandering into this thread. But did anyone else just watch a thoroughly unconvincing clip of Sandra bullock and a shit ton of CGI or was it just me? Reviews seem great though so I'm sure I'll be raving about it in a week.|
Girlfriend saw the trailer and thought it was some spoof sci-fi film because of Sandra.|
Don't think this'll be one we watch together.
I came in like a wrecking ball. Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung. Left me crashing in a blazing fall. All you ever did was wreck me. Yeah, you, you wreck me.
I know someone who said, without a hint of irony, "it looks completely unrealistic".|
It does though. Where are the space explosions and pew pew lasers?|
Fuck me...it's now got 43 reviews on Metacritic and the average score has actually gone up! 97% |
*awaits the inevitable attention seeking cunt who marks it down to get people to visit his poorly-coded review site*

My review, copy-pasted from the movie review thread:|
Absolutely gorgeous and incredibly intense film. Visual effects were brilliant and Cuaron definitely deserves a nod for Best Director.
Two problems... dialogue and Clooney. It's really one of those films where the less said, the better. Some of the lines were a bit cringeworthy and almost took me out of the movie entirely. Same with Clooney, his appearance is too jarring. I enjoy his acting, but probably would have liked another (less recognizable) actor in his place.
That said, Bullock gives a great performance, and there was a certain moment that made me tear up. There's definitely no other film like it. See it on the biggest screen possible."
I'll probably go see it in theatres again. I'm sure there's a lot you'd miss the first time round.

I enjoyed it I also disliked it immensely.
Clooney was a big no no for his role. There is just something about his acting that feels like he's phoning it in. He's so one note throughout.
After the initial "incident" the peril gets old a bit quickly as its one thing after another and the screenplay struggles to pad it all out.
Great effects though
