Recently, my boo and I watched Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls because he hadn’t seen them and it reminded me of watching those movies with my next door neighbor, Jackie (we always used to watch the PG-13 or R rated movies at her house). Two words for the first film: Trans*phobic and Homophobic. One word for the second: Racist. But, there’s an albino bat in the second so it led me down a rabbit hole of adorable white bat photos on the internet.
Gravity (2013): I don’t usually write anything in tumblr, but this was too good to pass up. I was very impressed by Gravity! I saw it last night in 3D and on an IMAX screen, and while I usually dislike 3D, in this case it was money well spent.
I won’t give anything away about the film, but this is a screen shot from my favorite scene. It is about an hour into the film, and it is the first time we see Sandra Bullock’s character in the flesh—so to speak. The whole time she is encased in her bubble of a space suit. But during this moment, she has discarded that bubble, is (relatively) safe, breathing O2, unencumbered, and floating. She spins for a moment, and the image of the human form, floating in space, slowly curling into the fetal position is mesmerizing. Well done.
Ps. Damn, Sandy had to get FIT for this film—she looks great.
