That Thing You Like #31 – Gravity


This week we sat down to discuss Alfonso Cuarón’s GRAVITY. A film that pits Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, and one other guy against the biggest dick in all of existance: SPACE!

Seriously you guys, space is a real dick in this movie. It makes you realize that you totally wouldn’t want to invite space to a party at your house. It’d drink all your booze, throw up in your bathroom, and probably say mean things about your decorating choices. Just a real dick.

It’s a really great movie though!

Ladies and gents, this film is one you do not want to miss in theaters. Aaaaaaaand judging by the bonkers amount of money the thing has been raking in, odds are you probably haven’t. Good on you. Good on all of us!

GRAVITY is just an absolutely stunningly beautiful film. Admittedly the characterization might be a bit thin, but it certainly gets the job done. Besides, this movie is all about them visuals. Them glorious visuals. It’s real pretty is what we’re saying. Is it $20 IMAX 3D movie ticket pretty? Well… maybe!  Although… ugh, $20.

Beyond that, it’s also what is known as “a real thrill ride.” We might even be inclined to say that “you’ll pay for the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge.” However, there’s a good chance you paid $20 for that seat. So, you know what, use that whole thing. Get your butt all up on that seat. You earned it.

Thanks for listening y’all! If you like us, we’d very much appreciate it if you rated us on iTunes and/or shared a link on your preferred social network.

  1. I’m listening to the episode, and I want to comment about the air hatches. Remember that she was boarding abandoned space stations. Normally there would be someone inside to depressurize the interior of the air hatch before you open it. Come to think of it, I don’t imagine they leave any air in them at all if there’s anyone outside of the station. You wouldn’t want precious oxygen escaping into space every time someone opened one of them. They might leave air in them if there isn’t anyone outside of the station just to act as thermal insulation, since according to the movie it only takes about 10 seconds to drain or fill the hatch of all air.

    It just makes me think that space suits should have those ninja climbing claws built into them so you can grip the hell out of anything. ( ) I mean, not… spiky like that so people would be puncturing their suits all the time, but with rounded tips.
