First off, it looks like maybe we can have nice things - Sandra Bullock-George Clooney’s ‘Gravity’ Soars to Record $55M Box-Office Blast-Off. Now to my thoughts. Spoilers ahead.
I was totally with Kowalski about the view. I was looking at things like that beautiful green aurora and the sunrise and the huge cyclone on Earth as much as everything else that was happening.
Ryan Stone's character arc worked for as she overcame her completely understandable freaking out and found what she needed inside her to survive.
George Clooney was perfect as the experienced mission commander.
Because my mind wonders about such things, I'm wondering what the long term effects of the loss of so many satellites will be.
BTW these are the Soyuz landing rockets that were mentioned at a critical point.
