I was very bored by the film. And after so much hype disappointed.
Story is flat, in regards to CGI... well I have seen stuff in space before, hehe
The only entertaining part for me was Jorge c. Too bad he died. And some of
the First person perspective was cool. oh and sound was good

Maybe this movie needs to be watched in 3D... I saw it in 2D.
I just simple never watch 3D, because
-It hurts my eyes
-I can feel its fake
-It forces me to look in a specific direction, which I hate.
-and again, it hurts my eyes and brain...

I watched other movies in 3D like Avatar, and that one as well I prefer in 2D.
For Gravity only a 2/10 from me.

okay Ill get down off my soapbox now.

I haven't worked in the movie field, I work in the advertising but I have heard that this is quite "normal" for the big companies like MPC, DN, Framestore, etc ...

Amazing amazing VFX work.

Was also pleased to see prominent credits for the VFX team. I think this is the first time that I haven't had to wait for the world and his dog (and dog trainer) to scroll by before getting to the VFX credits.

Haha, nice observation. I hope they have Peter Jackson like extras.

Framestore just posted up a very nice shot progress reel of their own -

Spoilers obviously, but shrug.

Nice reel.

But it reminds me that the more I see Clooney flitting around in his MMU like Tinkerbell, the more I hate that scene. It's one of those moments that just doesn't fit in with a movie that's trying so hard to be 'realistic" (right along with the awful "Clooney at the end of the rope being pulled by some mysterious force" scene.)

This is something that really bothers me, considering it causes a pretty big moment to happen.

What is pulling him?

Poor screenwriting?

Seriously, it would not have been so bad if they didn't have multiple other shots where someone bounced back at the end of a line reeling out. If they simply had the line spinning from a central point so the centrifugal force was pulling on them out at the end, it would have made sense.
