[An Aside] Gravity!

Went to go see a movie in IMAX 3D for the first time ever, and thank the gods it was Gravity.

If you haven't seen it yet, this film completely justifies the use of 3D. Completely. If you're on the fence about it, or were burned by another film adding in 3D at the last minute, I'd highly recommend giving it one more shot. Cuaron was heavily inspired by the IMAX documentary, Hubble 3D, so the space shots are some of the best I've ever seen. To be able to feel that depth between you, the characters, and Earth below was amazing.

Also, when the action ramps up, it's a pretty stressful experience. If you were blown away by the extended action scenes Cuaron shot for Children of Men, you're gonna love to see what he's worked up for his follow-up. There's also a lot of fascinating themes flying around in the background if you keep an eye out.

I don't know. I loved it.

Loved it!

If you haven't heard of it yet, HERE'S THE TRAILER!
