Quick Review: Gravity Starring Sandra Bullock


Gravity directed by Alfonso CuarĂ³n stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in an action packed, heart pounding space thriller that, unlike the gravity that is absent from most of the movie will pull you in and not let you go until the end.

On a routine space walk, disaster strikes as the shuttle is destroyed by a Russian debris field causing all kinds of space mayhem and leaving Dr Ryan Stone stranded in space spiralling out of control.  What entails is a thrill a minute space ride that will keep you enthralled until the end as you really want to know if our hero will ever get back to Earth.  

The movie has a minimalistic look which makes you focus on the predicament our hero is in.  You will find yourself holding your breath along with Dr Stone which is the sign of a good movie.  Bullock's performance is worth mentioning as she really delivers in the acting department.  Believable and never over the top.  

The soundtrack by British composer Steven Price is almost zen like and is perfect for the movie.  Definitely one I will be purchasing on Itunes.

The movie is only 1 hour 31 minutes long and is a perfect length for the story.  It never out stays its welcome and being a short movie it never slows down or sags in the middle which a lot of current Hollywood movies sadly have a habit of doing.

A must watch preferably in 3D and on the big screen.

I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.
