Re: Gravity - Review and Discussion Thread

There is that third man second man syndrome, where climbers swear there is someone else helping them...

LIFE OF PI is the true heir to 2001 in terms of it being a movie you let wash over you. Samurai Jack with minimal dialog.

BTW Baldwin did a great interview this time last week:

I don't think we would have a Space 1999/2001 level moonbase had the Saturns been kept--but we would have something like out of Joe 90 or MOON ZERO TWO by now.

While Gravity replaces 2001 in hardness--I think it was a missed opportunity. I might have made her old space, and George new space--and had a depot accident from an unregulated private space outfit be the cause of the disaster, hitting a Mars ship during a Costa Concordia flyby of ISS.

There is your cluster of debris right there. No Comsats--they are too far above to be a threat.

On screen--the volume of debris is what you might expect of Enterprise blowing up over the Genesis planet.
