Cast: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney
Director: Alfonso Cuaron
Synopsis: Two astronauts who survived a damaged Space Shuttle mission, fight for their life as they find their way back to earth.
The Thumb-Up(s): Survival in an island? We had that. Survival in a locked room? We had that. Survival in the Grand Canyon. We had that. But survival in space? Totally new! I give full credits to the movie creator's creativity and efforts in getting the sophisticated space theory interpreted in the movie. Space and astrology lovers will definitely love this one.
The Thumb-Down(s): Despite a lot of rave reviews from professionals and friends, I totally don't get the hoo-haa of the movie. The movie has Sandra Bullock and George Clooney alone and 15 minutes into the movie it becomes Sandra Bullock ALONE. I mean, unless if you are a super fan of her, I bet you don't wanna watch a woman talking to herself trying to float her way here and there just to get back to earth for a good 1 hour plus. Plus, if you don't understand much of the space theory, you probably won't enjoy it much too.
The Verdict: Don't get me wrong cos I really appreciate the creativity of the storyline but man, the movie is FREAKING BORING!!!
