Gravity: Officially my #1 movie of 2013



Gravity
Not a review.
Space.
A frightening frontier.
This is the journey of one woman,
Her 90 minute mission: to survive the soundless, airless, gravity-less place that is space.
To seek out escape routes from the vast endlessness,
To boldly go back where everyone has been before:
HOME



This is officially my #1 movie of the year.
Why?
Well for one, it's by Alfonso Cuaron
The guy who made Children of Men & Prisoner of Azkaban.
And secondly....
Well, this was me during the movie:



Whoa.
WHOOOAA.
Holy shit.
ohshitohshitohshit.
Holyshitholyshit aaaaaaaaaah
Peniiiiing
Nooooooo
Aaaarrgghhhhhhhh
Phew.



Oh fuck.
OH fuck.
OH FUCK.
Ohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuck.
(And my brother: "shut the fuck up!")



This is essentially Man vs Space.
And man loses EVERYTIME.
Woman vs space ?
Different story altogether.



Why is this my #1 movie of the year?
Becasue it's the most brilliantly immersive movie of the year.
I literally stopped breathing at one point.
The soundlessness, the helplessness and sadness,
The vastness of space,
It's scary.
And I got motion sickness.



Word of advice,
Watch this in IMAX 3D.
Because THIS is what IMAX 3D was made for.
It SUCKS YOU into the movie.
And you can probably get motion sickness,
(More advice: Don't watch this when high)
Even stop breathing at one point.
It's THAT good.
