Not to go against the grain here, but I just got back from Gravity and it had way too much Hollywood fantasy for my tastes.
The Hubble orbits over 100 milles higher than the ISS…
Clooney must have some hella good eyesight to spot Bullock with a simple flashlight beacon.
Just what exactly was pulling on George Clooney's character when he had to let go?! Both he and Bullock are in freefall, yet it's set up like a cliche scene where he's hanging off the side of a building…
Sure was lucky for for that capsule to right itself and stop tumbling all on its own during re-entry…
As for being suspenseful, it was indeed that - too much so. From one storyboard scenario to the next, it never let up. By the time Bullock touched down after her miraculous re-entry, I was just about rolling my eyes when her capsule started filling with water.
Some good backdrops of the earth and the blackness of space during the early part of the film though.
