Gravity is part of something bigger that is going on in movies right now. Many of the films being released this fall that lead the Oscar lists are survival stories. All, in a way, are descendants of Daniel Defoe’s 18th-century novel Robinson Crusoe. Kidnapping and bondage in Twelve Years a Slave; piracy and abduction in the upcoming Tom Hanks movie Captain Phillips; and a shipwreck in the Robert Redford drama, All Is Lost.Gravity These films are an alternative to the artifice of the CGI global-franchise movies, with their complicated mythologies and overload of special effects. There’s something conceptually pure about a drama that pits one individual against a hostile environment, that recognizes there are few experiences more immediate than a body in trouble. With Gravity, Cuaron uses cutting-edge technology, from robotic cameras to expert CGI, to create not a fantasy but tangible experience.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a game-changer. Aside from everything else that can be said to praise the new Warner Bros. sci-fi thriller Gravity, the first thing that you should know is, you’ve never seen anything like the visual experience of this film. It’s akin to the effects leaps represented by 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, and Avatar. So realistic and breathtaking, in fact, that you’ll forget you’re watching special effects, and feel as if the movie were actually shot in space. But as great as that is, there’s far more to praise about director Alfonso Cuarón’s masterpiece than just the greatest special effects to yet grace the big screen. Let’s look at some of the box office and budget considerations, before I give you my full review.
Gravity is the first movie in seven decades from Cuaron, since his dystopic movie Kids of Men. Shot in 3-D, with completely immersive genuine objective, you should see Severity that way, ideally in Imax, seated in the center near the coming back of the cinema, for the finish concentration of the encounter. That way, you will be revoked, almost trapped in area with the jet pilots.
