Gravity

Postby BurtJordaan on October 21st, 2013, 11:54 am 

I've just watched this stunning movie (and I'm not just talking about Sandra Bullock's stunning "out-of-spacesuit" look). I haven't seen a review on this forum yet, but I enjoyed it despite a few "doubtful physics" instances. If you haven't seen it, do it!

I found an astronaut's opinion on the film here: http://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2013/10/17/what-does-a-real-astronaut-think-of-gravity/.

Best not to read the whole review until you have seen the movie, but it does give a spoiler warning at the appropriate place.

My favorite quote from the review: "Once Sandra caught him, he would be just floating there. A small tug on his tether would send him back to the space station. And as my wife put it, when you have a hold of George Clooney, only an idiot would let him go."

How did you find it?
