Movie Review: Gravity

Oct 12, 2013

Ever since science fiction took off like a rocket at the movie box office in 1950, one of the favorite, and most feared, story lines was being lost in space, never to return to Planet Earth again. More often than not, these very low-budget astronauts were shot against cardboard sets, which occasionally moved when bumped into, almost never seemed to be without gravity of some sort keeping them upright and moving around, and only had a smattering of non-descript knobs to twiddle with. Yes, sixty-three years ago was the sci-fi Stone Age when it came to space travel in the movies.
