Today is a big one. We’re reviewing Alfonso Cuarón’s technical masterpiece “Gravity,” starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. A visual stunner upon its release, the film begged to be seen on the biggest screen possible (and in 3D) with its groundbreaking cinematography and visual effects. The story deeply resonated with audiences, too, bringing in a ton of box office and seven Academy Award wins, including Cuarón’s first Best Director win. What do we think of it all of these years later? How does it hold up watching it at home as opposed to in the theater? What did we think of the story, the performances, and the craft on display? We discuss all of this and more in our review down below! Joining me for this review, I have Casey Lee Clark, Dan Bayer, Josh Parham, Michael Schwartz, Will Mavity & Patreon guest Matt Ward. You can also check out our previous 2013 retrospective reviews of “Captain Phillips,” “Philomena,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” “The Great Gatsby,” “Her,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Dallas Buyers Club” & “Frozen” if you have not done so already.
