About this deal

For me, the use of 3D in 'Life of Pi' was a little more revelatory, but 'Gravity - 3D' is eye popping. In eschewing the nausea-inducing shakycam and rapid-fire editing style favored by other 3D releases this year, Cuaron clearly shows he is aware of 3D’s limitations (especially on a gigantic maxi-screen) and therefore steers well away from such annoyances to instead focus on creating long floating camera moves which when coupled with minimal editing (only cutting when absolutely necessary) – creates an enormously captivating and enjoyable 3D experience.

The dialogue here is awkwardly clunky at times and laughably ridiculous at others – particularly during a scene where Bullock is instructed by Clooney to stop talking to conserve her rapidly depleting oxygen reserves – only for him to completely contradict himself five seconds later by firing off a nonstop barrage of questions at her (in an effort to keep her calm) – thus forcing her to unnecessarily deplete her oxygen supplies – what?and Angelina Jolie were still attached to the project, the plan was to shoot the movie with a 3D camera rig.

When Kowalski asks Stone to let go of him because the rope will not hold them both, that could never happen because they are both in the same orbit around the earth. Though the track is wonderfully diverse in its use of silence, dynamic range, and blockbuster aggression, I have to ask the folks at Warners one question: 5. Gravity is a nuts-n-bolts story of survival, little more; although small details about past tragedies and present struggles in Stone's life render every inch of her journey more meaningful than the last. It knows when to ramp up and give the audience a breather, but it never ever, ever cuts away and lets you leave your protagonist. It's like inviting people around my house to watch a movie, and Big Screen has always had the option to share movies or your desktop.The highest compliment I can give Gravity is this: upon exiting the IMAX 3D theater after my initial viewing, I had to collect myself before driving home.
