Jeff - Thanks and I totally agree.. I also think the 3d was a hit and Bullock should win an award for her performance...
Thanks again

Hello Movie lovers,

I wanted to pass along my recommendation to see GRAVITY, Sandra Bullock's new film that opened last weekend.

This is the newest work of director/writer Alfonso Cuarón, whose previous work includes Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien, and one of the Harry Potter films.

While most of you are probably familiar with the plot line - Astronauts in peril, trying to get back to safety - the trailers do not prepare you for the depth of the story line nor the brilliance of it's execution. I have been a science fiction fan since I was little, and have long held 2001 as the benchmark to measure other films by. While Gravity does not achieve the long term view of humanity of that film, it is an amazing view of how precious life on Earth is, and how integral our reaching out to the stars is to our nature.

Beyond that, I strongly suggest you see it in 3D. So much more than a visual gimic as it is in most films (even Avatar), here it is integral to the plot, and the meaning of the story.

I don't do this for most big screen films, but this one is worth the publicity....
