did you have any candy? sounds like noGravity was the worst movie I have ever seen. The screen play was horrible. The dialog was worse. The characters were cardboard at best and there wasn't a moment when anyone with whom I spoke cared one iota about who lived or died. The plot was as misogynistic as can be imagined - brilliant female scientist needs caveman to survive.
That leaves only the special effects, which just weren't special. First, the rendered images of the various space stations looked like a college student's claymation project. Second, there was no serious green-screen effort with the actors because they were in extra-vehicular suits the entire time and so even they were rendered wire-frames. The only green-screen effort that I saw was the piss-poor attempt to place eyes, nose and mouth in the visor area of the space suits and that was done remarkably poorly, too.
Was the 3D footage of the earth interesting? No! There's no such thing as a 3D image of a sphere from 100 miles - everything looks flat at that distance.
This film is a gigantic con job using a B-rated cast and some cheap rendering hacks to tell an implausible story to a non-discriminating audience. It's a waste of time.
Why is this thread even here?
Did I sleep through the part where there's a FUCKING Sailboat?
was there are sailboat floating around up there? why are we discussing here?
the radio contact part was one of the most believable events. I liked the beginning, but once the 2nd incredibly improbable event happened about 10 minutes in, it went down hill. also if you see it, dont bother with the 3d, total misuse of that tech.Here is a hint or two for the movie producers when they make a sequel:
1. When you grab a passing space station or space ship, there is no drag. Once you are going the same speed you don't have to hang on like you are being dragged behind a boat. There is no air or water. It isn't like being a wing walker or the guy that is too dumb to let go of the line when he falls off water skiing
2. When space debris comes at you fast enough the shred your space station, you can't see it and duck. It is going faster than a rifle bullet.
3. When you call for help on the radio, odds are poor you will get some random guy in China apparently taking care of little kids while chatting with passing space ships.
