this was a fantastic film. i liked the first a lot, but this one exceeds it in terms of atmosphere, character development, and even acting. the dialogue was a bit dry at times, but overall the film was quite good.
gravity is a very entertaining film executed nicely by cauron, but like all of his films, i dont quite get the hype. the film was very good, a lot of fun to watch, pretty to look at, but was also the epitome of a standard survival film, with almost no deviation from the cliche survival film handbook. a great film, but more of what we've seen from this genre many times.

"of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world she had to walk into mine." what a perfect movie. i just saw this for the fourth time and it was the best viewing yet. this film is cluttered with wonderful qoutes, great diologue, and an incredible plot. bogey and bergman are larger than life in this film and the rest of the actors really shine. i have read many critics reviews of this film and some try to think of something critical to say for the sake of being objective, in reality criticizing this film is futile. many consider this to be one of the top five films and unlike others in the top five, i can raise no objections here. this is easily one of the greatest films ever made without exception. as ebert once said, this is probably the most well recieved and reviewed film ever made and it deserves its aclaim. "heres lookin at you kid."
the best sound and cinematography Ive ever seen in a movie. a great restart to a film series about this figure of american mythology. every actor delivered leaving me salivating for the next films in the series. the training sequence was brilliant and the development of the character bruce wayne was as complete and interesting as one could have hoped for.
