Yes, you read that right. Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, has given a brief review of Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity to THR. Not convinced you need to see it from my review? Well, let Buzz freakin’ Aldrin tell you why you should see it! Click the THR links to read the entire review. Check out a couple of snippets here:
I was so extravagantly impressed by the portrayal of the reality of zero gravity. Going through the space station was done just the way that I’ve seen people do it in reality. The spinning is going to happen — maybe not quite that vigorous — but certainly we’ve been fortunate that people haven’t been in those situations yet. I think it reminds us that there really are hazards in the space business, especially in activities outside the spacecraft.
We’re in a very precarious position of losing all the advancements we’ve made in space that we did 40 years ago, 50 years ago. From my perspective, this movie couldn’t have come at a better time to really stimulate the public. I was very, very impressed with it.
I saw Gravity yesterday and am still haunted by it. It is a magnificent piece of filmmaking and you owe it to yourself to see it. Click here to check out my review.
