Worst Movie

Gravity, the movie. (Apologies to Mel Brooks).

Horrible. Despite the technical flaws in the portrayal of NASA EVAs and the horrendous portrayal of the physics of orbital mechanics, the dialogue - or rather monologues - represent some of the worst writing known to man.

I could go on and on describing this train wreck of a script but I don't have to. I will include a quote.

"Mommy found her red shoe."

If you see the movie and experience this ham-handed soliloquy containing the quote, you too will know the pain.

I've been robbed. Please, don't go. You too will be robbed. Worse, you'll be promoting the success message that this style of schlock script can produce profits thus encourage more of the same.

Over all rating: 4 of 10 corpses floating in space. [ Actual body count and not a reflection on the film's entertainment value, which is a 2]

It's time I want back at the end of my life. Or not. I'd probably get the time back only if agreeing to another showing, in which case I'd choose death.

Oh, good to know. I don't watch many movies, and this one had caught my eye because of the concept. Glad I didn't waste my money!

Anything I can do to keep writers from this movie will go in my karmic plus column.
