Review: Gravity

All the hype leans toward Gravity scooping the Oscars next year, best film, best actresses and more. Now, I not one for hype but I had to check this movie out.

The verdict. I liked it. It was the first time (for me) that a space odyssey type movie has come out that let the audience experience the loneliness, despair and expanse of space and from the perspective of an in-experienced astronaut.

Will it beat out the action movies like Wolverine or the less action pact Captain Philips? Well sadly, going by the Oscars track record (and considering the judges are approaching their 70’s) it’s likely. Still Gravity was an entertaining watch.

A firmly grounded 3/5 from me.
