Good info on Gravity. Think I'll wait for the DirecTV version....

12 Years A Slave (recommend)
Kitchen Stories (recommend if you don't mind subtitles, this was a very entertaining film--appealed to the Scandinavian in me)

We'll probably watch it just because we're huge Sandra fans, but I can already hear Himself channelling Neil deGrasse Tyson and mentioning every single one of the astronomical errors.

At least Robert Redford's latest film 'All is Lost', where he gets stranded at sea in his disabled boat, had a little more substance than Gravity. He was the only character and the entire film took place on his little boat, and he only spoke one word.

If the word came immediately after his boat was disabled... I can guess what it might have been

I don't mind him correcting the movie. Actually, we both have fun trying to spot the poor edits, the prop mistakes, the incorrect facts. Just think how much fun we could all have acting like it's a game show - see who calls out an error first!

Of course what would be WAY more fun would be to have Neil Tyson sitting in the extra chair spotting those errors for us. Love the man!
