Folks, there are few things that grind my gears in life. I consider myself a relatively simple guy who tries not to complain (hey, you could be stranded in orbit, right?) but today I must make an exception.
Something I have always said is that any time there is a successful movie, there is someone else crying theft of the idea from them. This has happened with dozens and dozens of household movies, including The Terminator as possibly the best example. James Cameron was confronted by a sci-fi writer of an episode of The Outer Limits, I believe, for supposedly stealing the idea of a time traveling cyborg. Naturally Cameron was pissed off because of this, since he had never heard of the guy and had to pay him simply because he made a famous m…Read more >
On a wiki based off a 90 minute movie with two characters and a single setting.
Now that we have 200 pages, we can be promoted on Wikia.com!
So now this wiki can be promoted despite being modeled after a single movie!!
Oh, yes! I think so!

I'm not your average fanboy. If a film doesn't deserve to win an award, it shouldn't win it. I don't know if Gravity deserved to win best picture or best production design. But that being said, it definitely deserved a win for best actress. Sandra Bullock carried that entire film herself and came out of a self-imposed hiatus after her husband left her to do this film. Shooting was so stressful she wanted to walk off the picture every day. The emotions of anger and despair you see on screen are authentic. How many actresses can pull off barking like a dog? Certainly not Cate Blanchett...
Gravity won seven Oscars, editing, sound editing, sound mixing (is there a difference between the two?), visual effects, director, soundtrack and cinematogr…Read more >
I have heard for months how "Gravity" was a stupid title for this film. Whether it be from the lips of my father or astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, everybody seems to think that a movie that takes place in space should be called "Zero-Gravity", not "Gravity". There is, after all, no gravitation in space.
I can understand these complaints. However, it's pretty obvious that "Gravity" is a much better title than "Zero-Gravity". Let's face it, folks. "Zero-Gravity" sounds like it would be the title of a bad SyFy channel original movie, not a huge blockbuster.
So, aside from "Gravity" sounding both simplistic, familliar and intense, why would the filmmakers call it "Gravity" if it takes place largely in an area of space where there is *no* …Read more >
Yes, it seems that this wiki has reached the special milestone of 100 pages!!
When I started editing this wiki, I figured that there would be no way this wiki could get past 45 pages, let alone to 100. So, even though this number may not have this much signifigance to normal people, it has quite a bit to me. I discovered that this wiki had been created by someone else and decided to do whatever I could to make sure this incredible film had a complete encyclopedia for it, since it had already been created. Even though I don't normally support entire wikis for one film, I knew in my heart that this one was different. Not in years had I seen a film that had touched me in such a way as this one. So, I figured that I would contribute for a whil…

So, the Golden Globes nominated Gravity for four well-deserved categories and wound up only winning one-best director. I wish to extend a hearty congratulations to Alfonso Cuarón for his brilliant work on this outstanding film, and also to all the other nominees and winners. While I am proud that Gravity at least won one award, I think that Gravity deserved more than one.
Hopefully this doesn't come off as a whine thread (although the one I am truly irked by is Price's musical score robbing, but we'll get to that) it is really more of a thread discussing why I feel Gravity should win the Oscars I think it should and also a brief discussion about the Golden Globes.
Not that I have a problem with this, great films deserve praise. But for a fi…Read more >
This is my review of Gravity. Please feel free to write your own on your own blogs.
What can I say that people haven't said already? This film certainly lives up to the hype!! What I cannot grasp is how there are people who actually do not like this film. They argue that it is only good for the effects. These people are surprisingly common. Trust me, DO NOT LISTEN. They just want to tear down something that so many people love because they are wannabe critics.
You really have to see this one in 3D or the front row of IMAX in order to get the full experience, but you feel like you are IN space while watching it, especially in 3D. This film is absolutely unbelievable. The effects are breathtaking, the music shatteringly climactic, and the acti…

Hello, all. Welcome to the GRAVITY movie wiki.
First of all, I just want to thank you sincerily for coming by. I saw Gravity in the cinema in 3D and was astounded. This special film is one of a kind, the spectacle you have the privilage to witness maybe once in a lifetime; and is important to modern American cinema. It will no doubt go down in history as a groundbreaking classic.
However, I have also found it to be quite difficult to expand a wiki based around a single film, let alone one as complex as GRAVITY. So, please continue your generous contributions to this wiki and help us all out. This is a new, growing wiki and your work will not go unappreciated. Essentially the Gravity Movie Wiki features information related to the film, char…Read more >
