      Cool Alternative beginning to Gravity...

      Hard to believe, but Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuaron ("Children of Men") originally shot an opening scene for Gravity that would have radically changed the film. Too bad the brass at Warner Bros. rejected this version.

      SPOILER ALERT!











      Not a bad film by all means but how many oscars?
      Really?
      90 minutes of (the same) jeopardy and... erm what else exactly?

      Doesn't Sigourney Weaver die when the Alien jumps out from her stomach?

      Yeah sorry, i forgot about that.
      Plus there was that bit where the monolith starts making that horrible, high pitched noise.

      Maybe i'm being a bit harsh on gravity.

      That was no monolith.

      That is the frozen body of Han Solo, or was it Peter Griffin?

      I watched Gravity in 3D and thought that it was very good in 3D because of the effects, but the film itself was only average in my opinion and I would not have enjoyed it in 2D.

      The effects and potential of the facts was good, but you have to believe in Sandra Bullock's character for the film to work as a whole.

      Still the clip above is quite funny.

      Watched gravity last night. I quite enjoyed it. Not sure it was a multiple oscar winning film but it did capture my attention. Loved the alternative beginning.
