Reply to "MOVIES: What are you watching?"

Finally saw Gravity. I'd say it's a deeply flawed masterpiece and I will rate it 88 points. I have been a scifi geek my whole life and there is no question that this carries the feeling of being in space (as if I know what that is) better than any movie since 2001. But the plot is so threadbare and formulaic.

It starts like the best Disney ride you've ever been on. Turns into an impossible to suspend disbelief for too many hardships movie--ala Castaway. And tags on some sentimental slop childhood death story to make it into a movie.

There is no doubt of the special place this movie has in filmmaking history. But for me there's ultimately a hollowness that can't be filled.
