Gravity has a tiny cast and an incredible story. We loved it! I took my two daughters to watch it in 3D at the local IMAX theater. We enjoyed the comfy seats, larger than life screen, and bottomless popcorn and lemon water- it was so worth it.  If Star Trek was this exciting I probably would like it just a little. It made me wish that I was an astronaut floating around with them in outer space. 🙂

Movie Tip:”Gravity” in only 90 minutes 

I can relate with Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) role on so many levels. On she lost a daughter at a very young age. So did I.  “Dr. Stone” had to find way to go on mentally. Her commander, veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky/George Cloney, proved to more than eye candy. He served as a refreshing light in guiding her into a place of empowerment. I love the way he used humor throughout the movie.

MOVIE TIP: “Gravity” cost $100 million to make”

Like ” Dr. Stone”, I went a long time looking for a reason to continue to live, love and thrive. I had it so bad, I recall staying up all night searching for the meaning of death.  To this day, I can’t tell you what turned it around for me. From devastation to hope. From sadness to joy. From anger to happiness. Something inside me said, “It’s time to move on. You have others looking up to you. My life isn’t over yet. “Loosing a child is not easy. But just as the movie showed it is a must to be free and at peace before you touch the ground.

Go see GRAVITY, it’s fantastic!”  Woof Woof Woof!”  (after you watch the movie, you’ll know what that means 🙂

Here’s the Synopsis:

Director Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity stars Sandra Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone, a scientist on a space shuttle mission headed by astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), a talkative, charismatic leader full of colorful stories that he shares with his crewmates as well as mission control. As the two are on a space walk, debris hits the area where they are working, and soon the pair finds themselves detached from their ship and stranded in space. While figuring out what steps they can take to save themselves, Stone grapples with a painful past that makes her consider giving up altogether.
