Gravity: 10/10I don't even know what to say. Alfonso Cuarón has created his masterpiece, and the greatest space film of all time, and what is probably the most important film of the year. I know it took a lot for him to get it made the way he wanted it made, and it was absolutely worth every effort. It is unbelievably intense, horrifying, heartbreaking, and sublimely beautiful. It is my favorite film of 2013 without question, and probably in my top five favorites of all time. I would not hesitate to call this a perfect film, and it doesn't matter if the physics don't add up, or if trajectories are inaccurate, blah blah blah. Anyone who lets something like that hamper their enjoyment of this film is missing the point of watching movies in general.Absolutely see it in 3D, IMAX if you can. Gravity is an experience that is not to be missed. It's not a film that you stop watching, it's a film that releases you.
It is so unfair that Gravity isn't over here until early November. I can't even - Gah! Such impatience!!!
Let Me In - 4/5Again, another re-watch just a few days ago. There is something about the story line that just seems so original, in a genre where everything has been done 500 times over.
Also, Landon Parks - I just have to say, if you love the American version 'Let me In' then be sure to watch 'Let the Right One In' - the original Swedish version directed by Tomas Alfredson. I studied the Swedish book for my university dissertation and fell in love with it so watched all the accompanying films. 'Let me In', although still great, has been seriously Americanised to appeal to another audience - it leaves out much of what is shocking and controversial about the book itself. There's also a bunch of questions about gender, society and sexuality which it just doesn't address. If you like the general plot but want to see the original, darker, more atmospheric version, take a look at the Swedish version - you can get it with translated subs online.
Agreed - the original Swedish version is fantastic!
