Gravity (movie)

Did you miss seeing Gravity on the big screen or would like to see it again? Then join other skeptics this Saturday evening to do just that! Afterwards, we'll go down to The Sett (first floor), to enjoy some beers/other refreshments and each other's company. :)

Movie description:

Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone, tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth... and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. And yet, the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

Watch the Trailer!

The event is free and open to the public.

    Let me put in a self-serving plug for Richard S. Russell's Science Fiction Movie Reviews, a listserv on which I hold forth on the 70 or so SF, fantasy, and comic-book movies that come out every year, usually within a day or 2 of their hitting Madison. You can sign up by sending blank e-mail to

    I mention this because Gravity is one of the movies I reviewed last year, and I thot the FX were amazingly well done in Imax and 3-D, undoubtedly the closest any of us will ever get to being in space. The acting (by only 2 actors, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as the stranded astronauts) was above average without being stellar. Some of the science, tho, was howlingly bad, which in my experience often makes for a fun discussion afterward.

    Unfortunately, I have a prior commitment for the movie, but I may be able to make it for the post-flik discussion.

      Yeah, I'm sorry I missed the 3-D version of it. Ah, well. In any case, perhaps we'll see you afterwards then! :)

    Darn, won't be able to make it. I did see the movie and liked it a lot but it would have been fun to discuss with you all.

      Sorry to hear you can't make it, but we hope to see you again soon at other events, Deborah! (I see you've got Cosmos on the calendar - yay! :) )
