    Home Theater United Episode 20 - Film historian and preservationist Mr. Robert A Harris

    I think you might like it. It’s interesting to compare/contrast it to Gravity, which is wonderful in its own way, but if it had followed the science, Clooney and Bullock are dead in the first half hour. Stowaway doesn’t shortchange the science but still presents a compelling survival tale.
