The 86th Academy Awards happen in a few weeks and Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity is nominated for 10 Oscars (tied with American Hustle for the most), including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress for Sandra Bullock. While Gravity is winning BAFTA Awards and Golden Globes left and right, the space epic has its fair share of critics who didn’t care for Cuarón’s thrilling character study. The good people at ScreenJunkies released an Honest Trailer, and it’s one of the funniest videos they’ve released yet.
While I wasn’t a big fan of Gravity, the best way to watch the film was in theaters projected on a large IMAX screen, in fully immersive 3D. Now that the movie isn’t in theaters anymore, it’s going to be strange to adjust to a small screen. Hopefully people aren’t watching this on a four-inch iPhone screen. That would just ruin the epic cinematic experience. Gravity’s home video release reminds me of when James Cameron’s Avatar was released on Blu-ray/DVD. What the hell is the point of watching a movie like this on anything smaller than a movie screen?
