Gravity
2013
As a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission embarks on a space walk with a seasoned astronaut, debris strikes their craft and destroys it -- leaving the two floating through space tethered together, with no connection to Earth.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Every superlative that you hear about this movie is accurate. It looks and sounds incredible. See it on the biggest screen you can, in 3-D if possible. It's relentlessly hair-raising, a rollercoaster of a movie, a horror film for people who have outgrown monsters and prefer existential threats based on reality. The movie clearly goes out of its way to portray science accurately, save for a couple of touches of artistic license. The story feels a bit too simple and tidy to me, but I could easily imagine a studio having less confidence in it and bogging it down with needless backstory and extra characters that would only detract from the whole, so it's better this way. I can't recommend this movie enough.

Samir Mehta: “It ruled.”

A masterpiece. I had no idea Sandra bullock could act so well. Simultaneously visually engaging, intense, and subtle.

Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

It really really ruled. As I indicated in the movie of the month thread - there was one point that irritated me as a scientist (nevermind the fact that they would never have been able to get to the ISS due to different orbits). The special effects are revolutionary and I'm excited to see more films utilize it (if the CGI industry survives that is...)

If you haven't seen it, try to do so and if you can see it in 3D
