Dallas and I saw the movie Gravity in 3D. Now THIS is a movie that has to be seen in 3D, not like all the ones coming out now that are done in 3D for no reason, except as a gimmick or to charge more. We ended up going to the Icon on Roosevelt* because the seats are more comfy and I wasn’t sure how sitting for an hour or two would affect me. We had originally planned to see the movie in 3D on the IMAX and I still think this would be worth the extra money to see on the IMAX, though we did enjoy it at the Icon.
As for the story, let’s just say it’s about space and a lot of things going wrong with the astronauts up there :). Basically, there are only a couple actors in 90% of the movie. I didn’t really read up on any of the story before going and found it to be really intense. Like gripping the armrest intense. And the cinematography and CGI is really beautiful.
See this movie, but in 3D or not at all! Better yet, go to the IMAX!!! Also, I kept thinking that with just a little bit of editing, this movie is beautiful enough to be shown at a planetarium. Those that have seen it, could you imagine it on the big dome? Now, THAT would be intense!
* This area on Roosevelt, the Roosevelt Collection, has really blown up! We’ve been going to this theater for a couple years and it seemed like FOREVER all the storefronts were empty. And now? Tons of stores.
** I keep getting this song in my head when I think about the movie:
