Welcome to movies4mensa

In this blog, I hope to discover via rapport with film buffs all over the world why some films (movies) highly recommended or awards nominated or awards winner are not actually that good to me.
I am a professional pianist, guitarist, composer, arranger and orchestrator from Paraguay, and have been a movie buff for almost half a century.

"Gravity"...speaking of bad films

I have been watching VHSs first, and DVDs later until now, during the last 30 years or so.  After quite some time I went to the movies to watch the 3-D "Gravity" film.

The looks of the film is stunning, and it makes you wonder in the very moment "...how did the Director and his crew actually *DO* such and such scene..".  However, the movie itself is unbelievably poor.  What is going on with script writers these days (since around year 2000)?.  Why, why, why is always-grinning-faced Clooney in this movie? (SPOILER: He shows for about 8 minutes or so, and *anyone* could have played the dumb role).

Ms Bullock looks great and super fit.  But...acting?.  Well, there's not much to grasp to deliver a strong performance since the whole dialogue in the whole film lasts probably around 20 minutes or so.  And it is a very poor dialogue at that.

Once you leave the theater there is nothing, nothing left, except for the 3-D glasses you have to give back.
