Thread: Gravity the Thread

  1. #1

    Default Gravity the Thread

    Once in a while a film comes along that changes cinema forever...
    is this going to be that film?
    Early Reviews say it will be.
    I think it deserves its own thread.
    Who else is excited for this?

    What about cinema do you suspect it will change?

    He's got a valid point from a quantitative perspective. There will indeed be one more film. That's a change.

    I was reading that many films have since been produced - though I cannot confirm it.

    Well then, maybe it will discourage aspiring filmmakers in the audience enough to have an impact on the negative space where future films would have been. That's a change, too. In such a case, though, do we measure to the outermost frontier of all potential or do we extrapolate current noncompletion rates to adjust the imaginary loss for contingency? Exactly how much is this changing the cinematic landscape, in real numbers? How do we know the green I see is the same green you see?

    The losses have been long predicted and accounted for. If the film is a bigger than anticipated detriment to future film production, then I expect a reaction from Woody Allen and myself.

    Or maybe film is a had medium like painting and music.

    Jumper had rave early reviews too. Did that movie need its own thread? Please delete this thread.

    It must be a genuine comfort to acknowledge the promise of quick and irrevocable death in such cases, then.

    It certainly is.

    However, being adrift as depicted in this discourse-altering film (drifting alive in the void until the suit's life-sustaining mechanisms fail) seems even more supremely unpleasant. 30-seconds of trailer elevates my anxiety levels in ways I'm not fully comfortable admitting to.

    Take off the helmet. Use and concurrently destroy your brain.

    But I need my brain. If only to continue its slow, panicked descent into certain hypoxia in the black void of space.

    And is the helmet relatively easy to remove? That seems like a major design flaw. Someone call NASA.

    That's the exact route I took getting here., and I obviously didn't need brains. You're more than welcome to borrow my helmet.

    I think this film easily has potential to be one of the greatest movies of our time based on the talent involved in it. I mean, it hasn't received a negative review yet and that's already impressive

    I was stunned, absolutely floored, he says. I think its the best space photography ever done, I think its the best space film ever done, and its the movie Ive been hungry to see for an awful long time. - James Cameron


    Just watched the trailer. I'm sold.

    If I could think of premature deaths, this would be the choice death for me. It would be so reflective and ultimately incredible to die in a vacuum that overlooks our planet, where I could have control of my final fate but also control of the length of time before it inevitably hits. Although an unacknowledged part of this would be the eventual cold, which, honestly, is another thing I greatly relish.

    If anyone ever wants to kill me solely to see me dead, do this. You'd be happy, I'd get to live my final moments seeing the great unknown. As far as murders go, it sounds pretty cushy.

    You would think taking off your helmet would be a lot easier if your not at a constant flip/spin/flailing into deep space
