    Just got back, the movie was awesome, much more emotionally deep than i thought it would be, ofcourse the visuals were astounding. But i feel like the SCORE is being overlooked. The music created a nice emotional kick to every circ*mstance. It was indeed EPIC

    @Frank-T-Bodillia Shut the hell up..it isn't based on true events. Who gives a damn what you think anyway

    So sad. The movie should have been 6 minutes long. Sandra would have been killed crashing through the Hubble. The telescope is in an orbit 150 miles higher than the ISS. SAFER does NOT have the capability to cover that distance. Even Cady Coleman called the movie far fetched. And she was Sandy's inspiration.

    This movie spectacular!! I was loved the movie. Superb acting steller cast. In witch the movie only had a Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. The movie wonderfully done. But I hope this gets a best picture nomination!! I seen this in a RPX screen and in 3D. And it was greatly enhanced. You don't see a movie like this once in a blue moon.

    @Joshua-Hollaway lol. I went to see TDKR with this chick who wouldn't stop texting. Never again.

    Don't worry though, Gravity is the type of film that shuts you the hell up because your jaw is on the floor the whole time.
