Alfonso Cuaron: Gravity Film Analysis

Good Essays
The film I chose to watch is Alfonso Cuaron’s film, Gravity. The film is less of sci-fi and more of space thriller. I chose to watch this film because I have always been a fan of thriller films and this film is different and one of its kind. Especially watching the film in 3-D is worth. Most 3-D films are more like a gimmick but this is film achieves real depth and spatial awareness for the viewer. Perhaps, the film makes you breathless with excitement. To me, the film was more than a documentary depicting two astronauts floating in space. The movie is the most realistic film I have ever seen. It was as close to real as I could ever imagine a film on screen to be. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of watching the film.

It is not like other mainstream films. There are some thriller films that have a lot of dialogs and they might have dialogues like, “oh! The space shuttle is going to crash”. But gravity is the film that allows the audience to watch and decide what is happening in the film and figure out the things on his/ her own. The film explains less and shows more in its own creative

    Often times, these movies are set in space, which allows for more suspense to be packed in. The movies I chose to review are; Alien, The Thing, and Europa Report. I chose these three movies because I think they are much-watches for people who like alien or horror movies. Alien and The Thing are over thirty years old now, but they are still great movies today. Europa Report is a recent movie, but it’s consistently impressive visuals, and unique styling set it apart.…

    For example, when the dinosaur just escapes out of its cage and the intelligence they gave him gave it a really big part in the film. Another thing is the camera footage and the dinosaurs that looked very realistic the camera helped a lot that made everything more realistic. Transformers: the age of extinction was also one of my favorites of all of them I really liked it because when every time in the film when they fight he camera angels they put are great, and they could ever put it in slow motion with give you this feeling towards the movie.

    Going to space is still hard; however, someday everybody can go to space, live on another planet, exchange with other tribes such as Star Wars movie. In conclusion, Science Fiction will be close to everywhere.

    I thought the movie could not have been directed better; it provided romance, comedy, biography, drama all in one film. I consider that the research for this (on the technical side) could have slightly been better but the overall outcome was outstanding. I strongly believe we should see more films like this since it both entertained and taught me something. Works Cited Blitz, Matt.

According to Markin, he decided to announce his claim when the video of the space landing and the space rock went missing (Dailymail.com 2015). America only landed on the moon because they knew Russia was also trying to land on the moon. This gave America all of the publicity.
