Mexican-American father and son duo Alfonso Cuarón and Jonás Cuarón have created a masterpiece in GRAVITY.

1. It Sets A New Standard For Sci-Fi: there are a few times when you walk out of a film knowing you’ve seen a new “benchmark” in the industry; think Star Wars and The Matrix. Yes, Gravity is that good. It is so perfect, so lifelike and the special effects flow so clearly you feel that you are in space. This is why…

2. It Keeps You On The Edge Of Your Seat: from start to finish. The first time we heard about the premise of this film, an astronaut marooned in orbit, we thought “how can they keep that interesting for two hours?” But they do and that is what ads to the beauty of this film. Because in it’s simplicity…

3. It Is Absolutely Terrifying. Every major science fiction show or movie inevitably has someone being sucked out of an airlock and into space, but nothing until Gravity captures the pure horror of that moment. You also have to give props to the 3d, that helps breath realism into the tension that starts in the first few minutes and holds through out the film. What makes Gravity so good is it’s simplicity, placing human kind in the massive void that is space.

Yes, we are film buffs and this is less of a review than a plea for you to go see this film. We are not alone, just to give you an idea of how good it is, Gravity currently has a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has 96% and the Godfather 100.
