To fuel the fire, I really love, love, love this movie with all my heart. Gravity is the culmination of everything I have been waiting to see in a space movie done perfect, from the effects to the experience to the story being fun and meaningful. This movie is visually groundbreaking, the VFX help create an experience unlike any in cinema history in the way it captures the feeling of being in space with zero gravity, no air pressure, no sound, no oxygen. There are many moments of the story itself that I thoroughly enjoy, from the levity that Clooney provides to the heart-wrenching tragedy of Dr. Ryan Stone and her determination to live on even in the most impossible situation. This is my #1 movie of the year. I love everything about it - even the Buddha.
