Considering that I don't live anywhere close to a "Real IMAX", the local liemax is perfectly fine for me.

Although there is a Real IMAX theater relatively close to me I find myself going to the AMC IMAX since there are matinee prices and it's just more convenient.
It's gonna be a hell of a ride. I'm ready. .

I'm sure chuck meant one person. And not necessarily due to the film. I hope.

I was thinking the same thing while reading these reviews. As I have had more than one Heart Attack, I get very involved watching a film. I will still see it.

I haven't seen GRAVITY, but I would pay extra to see it if that guy was in the audience.

A movie made for the big screen and the visuals alone make it a worthy cinematic experience.  The rest is window dressing.

 

It is also a one trick pony and, for me, there is no desire to see it again. Definitely not outside of a theater.

Speaking of Gravity and Oscars here is my prediction/wish list for its nominations:
Best Picture
Best Director
Best Actress
Best Editing
Best Musical Score
Best Cinematography
Best Visual Effects
Best Sound
Best Sound Editing
Best Art Direction
Best Screenplay
Best Supporting Actor


Well, today is the big day for Gravity with the Oscar nomination being announced soon. I'm sticking with my predictions above except for supporting actor. So I say 11 Academy Award nominations. I hope it wins every one. :)

Correction. I don't think it will get a screenplay nod so I'll say 10 nominations.

Woo Hoo 10 for 10. Tied with American Hustle for most nominations.

I think it will clean up with the technical awards and Best Director. It's gonna be tough to win Best Picture. 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle will give it a run.

I love that this made a half-billion (and counting. . .this'll do gangbusters on disc).

Well, as long as Sandra Bullock gets her well-deserved award, I'm happy. That was one hell of a performance, in a film that didn't have that many actors, and almost no actor interaction, talk about a one-woman-show.

I think Gravity will win a bunch of awards in the technical categories. I'll be disappointed if the Best Sound and Best Sound Editing Oscars go to any other movies. The sound and mix on Gravity was very well done, particularly its use of the Dolby Atmos surround format. The movie, experienced in Atmos, set a new "high water mark" in terms of surround layering and panning activity. Even the music score was spread out to make creative use of the surround environment. The sound mix for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is the only show that could honestly give Gravity any competition in the sound awards categories (another pretty decent Atmos mix).

 

Gravity may have a more difficult time in the top awards categories (Best Actress, Best Director, Best Picture). It will be fairly easy to tell how the movie will do through the results of the Screen Actors Guild awards, Directors Guild Award and Producers Guild Award. More often than not those awards will telegraph the winners in the acting, directing and picture categories.

I wonder how many of the voters managed to experience all the nominees in their best audio light (so to speak). Do the studios arrange for Academy screenings in Atmos-equipped theaters?

Well considering it made over $250 million domestically, you would hope many members saw it in a great theater. So much will be lost on home video, no matter how awesome your home theater is.

Catching this again tomorrow in ETX Dolby ATMOS.
