Might be the best movie I've ever seen. Anyone else?

Surely the best 3D movie I've ever seen, at least.

A simple and effective story, fantastic visuals, great lead character, awesome soundtrack, great pacing, bucketloads of tension.

I've actually watched it in theaters twice now, which is something I almost never do (I've only done it once before).

It's quite a ride.

Alfonso Cuarón: That was the point, for us, of the film. Adversities and the possibility of rebirth. And rebirth also metaphorical in the sense of gaining a new knowledge of ourselves. We have a character that is drifting metaphorical and literally, drifting towards the void. A victim of their own inertia. Getting farther and farther away from Earth where life and human connections are. And probably she was like that when she was on planet Earth, before leaving for the mission. It's a character who lives in her own bubble. And she has to shred that skin to start learning at the end. This is a character who we stick in the ground, again, and learns how to walk.

Space already lends itself to all these metaphorical possibilities. I think rebirth in many ways is part of the journey for everybody, not only every human in Earth, but it's also the journey of great characters. Great characters in literature or in cinema they go through the stages of rebirth and of a new understanding.

And also while in the dirt, [that] was something that we wanted to have as a nurturing aspect of life. A character who has to reconnect to her inner nurturing side. The amazing side of life, that keeps us alive. Even if inside you feel you want to die, there's a bigger life impulse that keeps us alive.

It was alright. Bullock was surprisingly not too annoying so that was nice.

In terms of visuals, score, sound design and cinematography it was stellar.

The script was okay I guess. Acting was above average. But I found the setting and atmosphere the strongest aspects of the film.

I'd give it a 7 or 8 outta 10.
