Gravity, Space Porn With a Story

Post by Billy Russell It’s sort of a shame that the tagline, “In space no one can hear you scream” has already been taken by 1979’s Alien because that perfectly encapsulates the terror present in Gravity, the new movie by Alfonso Cuarón, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
