    A movie filmed almost entirely in low earth orbit, with 90% of the physics being correct - AND a good story to boot. Writing a good story, and then fitting it into the constraints of the real world - especially a world that movie makers have no instincts about - is a significant challenge, one that Alfonso Cuaron did an outstanding job at.

    It's a nice counterpoint to the "roll the dice" physics of Armageddon, also discussed here,

    Yeah.

    We weren't all that impressed by the trailer we saw at the movies, but the film got a big thumbs up from Australia's best known movie critics. It's now on our list - and 3D is apparently a must. At the Movies: Gravity

    Surprisingly enough, they also gave a big yes vote to Rush. Also on our list. At the Movies: Rush
