Gravity was an incredible movie with some of the best visual effects I have ever seen mixed in with genuine tension. IMO, perhaps the best movie (so far) of 2013 and definitely a movie you should see in the theater instead of waiting for it on BLU-RAY or DVD. I easily give Gravity an A.
I saw this on Monday, but not in 3D. In the end this is my favorite movie this fall so far and overall the front runner of the year. I'm a Sandra Bullock fan and she was great in this film as was George Clooney...
This afternoon I saw Thor; The Dark World. I liked it (better than Iron Man 3 IMO) but definitely not as much as the first Thor which I own on BLU-RAY.
If you go, stay through the entire credits because there are actually 2 extra scenes- one of them is halfway through the credits and the other is after all of the credits. I was the only one in the theater I went to today to see the 2nd extra scene.
Tonight I saw Escape Plan. Although Schwarzenegger had brief roles in the two Expendables movies, it was great seeing Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger together for the first time in a movie in which they both had starring roles. I would give this movie a B-.
I recently saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It is a good movie, but I just do not care for The Hunger Games as much as Battle Royale which I consider a superior movie with a similar premise created years before The Hunger Games books were written. I give the newest Hunger Games movie a B. I have a ticket to see the new Hobbit movie in an hour and a half.
