I can't believe how short this thread is... I guess it just shows where we do most of our movie-watching, eh?

Yes... I'm falling into that category more and more. Going to see Gravity yesterday didn't help. $22 for the wife and I, because of the added surcharge for the 3D. Also I get so easily frustrated with the other patrons. Loud ass folks eating popcorn and candy and such. Gaaaaaaaaaaaawd. I guess I especially aware because the theater needs to be absolutely quiet, particularly in the beginning, where they are driving home the point.... space, sound doesn't travel. It is absolutely mouse quiet in the beginning and people eating their popcorn and tearing open packaging was 'deafening'.

Gravity

Gravity was re-released to theaters this weekend, I guess based on Oscar buzz and this is truly one those films that needs to be watched on the largest screen possible. I imagine it will be fine when it get's released for the home screen, but recommend the big screen.

Gravity is stunning on every level. Visuals aside, this movie instantly sucks you in and it is a non-stop ride. It never lets up.

What makes Gravity stand out, for me, is how real it is and could be. Everything here could have happened. IMO, this is NOT science fiction.

Gravity has only George Clooney and Sandra Bullock with a couple of disembodied voices (NASA).

I highly recommend this for anyone. It is high drama set in near space.

Note: We saw this in 3D. Did not have a choice. Not terribly impressed. There was a scene or two where I said, wow, 3D, but I don't think it added anything to the experience.
