A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space. (IMDb)
Cherish what I am about to say, because it’s probably never going to happen again…I wish I had seen this on the big screen in 3D. I think I could have appreciated the massive scope of the whole thing even more. That being said, I thought this was awesome. Some of the cinematography is absolutely beautiful. Sandra Bullock deserves major recognition in this. She basically carried the whole thing. She was the only person on screen for the majority of the last hour. Yet, I was engaged the whole time. I thought that in general was super impressive. Something like this can become artsy and slow, but I thought this was nicely paced. There were actually moments where I was on the edge of my seat actually. I don’t think this is going to win the Oscar, but it’s still a great movie that is definitely worth a watch.
