Gravity


For me, this movie was just a movie.  I didn’t get any emotional feel from it or a sense of attachment to life and the whole meaning behind our existence.  At first, I didn’t think I was going to watch this film – I just didn’t buy into the characters of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney being astronauts.  They seem like the furthest actors I would’ve picked for these roles.  Then there was the whole gushing over the film as it was in the theaters and how amazing it was.  Can you say “over it”?  But, I did watch it – and it was so-so.  I’m sure if you saw in on the big screen and 3-D you might have found yourself attached to the story and might have “possibly” felt like you were one with space – but I just didn’t buy it.  I wasn’t impressed and I didn’t empathize with her character and the life and death situation she was facing. ( I also think George just showed up for a cameo – I guess to lend his name to the project).  Maybe I’m the only person on this planet that didn’t obsess over this movie – but I doubt it.
