Finally after wanting to see this movie for about 2 months, I found the right moment and crowd to go and see it. And without saying too much, the streak of great fall movies continues. I believe this movie to be one of the most innovative and unique films made in a long time. In fact, it was so unique that even the definition of a genre is somewhat hard…is it science fiction (just because it is in space) or is a thriller (because it is gripping and keeps at the edge of your seat for the entire duration) or is it a drama (because you feel and empathize with the struggle of the main characters).

As you have probably read, the plot is pretty straightforward and explained in the trailer: two astronauts being caught in space. Alfonso Cuarón shows his entire talent with the the great atmosphere of desperation and hope he creates. The cinematography which was presumably all created with visual effects is just stunning.

Many people said that the acting was not “that special” but here I have to disagree. I believe this to be the best acting of Sandra Bullock I have ever seen. And her on-screen presence without all the make-up is so raw and yet so beautiful. Her character Dr.Ryan Stone is the character who you just empathize with from start-to-finish and I truly enjoyed her character development. George Clooney is solid and barely disappoints as usual. But the true star of this movie (and I kind of hope that she will at least receive a nomination for the Oscars) is Sandra Bullock….a stellar performance.

Speaking of the Academy Awards, I am already will to make a bet that Gravity will take home the trophy for best Sound Mixing and Visual Effects. If one would imagine how being in outer space feels like, then I would think that Gravity absolutely nailed it. The transitions between numb explosions, the screaming and the heavy breathing are both just breathtaking both in audio and video.

It is hard to write more about this movie without spoiling it but I can guarantee one thing, you will be tied to the edge of your seat for the entire 90 minutes….and go watch it in 3D as long as it still running in the theater.
