What’s Wrong With The Movie Gravity? Ask Neil DeGrasse Tyson

When a movie is too scientific for Cinema Sins to handle, they call on noted astrophysicist and host of Fox hit Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Mr Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Science made me not want to see Gravity. Having been a fan of that particular means of explaining how reality functions for decades now, I was afraid I’d spend the entire flick picking away at it ruthlessly instead of stuffing my face with popcorned butter and diet soda. Now that Neil deGrasse Tyson has weighed in, I’m free to kick back and watch the Blu-ray until my children start breaking things and I have to turn Yo Gabba Gabba back on.


  • Really must get around to watching this some day. Ditto for Inception.

    I’m such a bad pop-culture movie watching type…

    • Inception – YES
      This trash – NO

      Sandra Bullock’s character is annoying, George Clooney’s character is annoying, the scenario is annoying. It should have ended at the 35 minute mark, would have been a better movie

      • Agreed, everyone raved about this movie but I found it painful and annoying to watch…waste of my time.

        • I saw Inception really late in the piece when the hype had died down and didn’t see what all the fuss was about. I had seen the South Park episode that rips into it though so that definitely had a detrimental effect.

          Saw Gravity at IMAX 3D and really enjoyed it.

  • I used to watch Cinema Sins a lot but then his videos started blowing out to 9-10-14 minutes etc and I just cbf anymore.

  • This video reaaaaally misconstrues Tyson’s standing on how accurate this movie is. Basically overall it’s pretty accurate, and you were wrong to not see it.

    • He does say he’s willing to see it, now. He seems to have a pretty severe compulsion to pick out flaws. I guess he’s not alone or Cinema Sins wouldn’t exist…

  • . One of my all time favorites. Have seen it 3 times. Twice in cinema once on 3d blu ray. It’s pretty much the perfect movie as long as you don’t hate Sandra bullock. Didn’t watch NDT debunk it, coz it’s a fark in movie, not a doco.

  • It’s not good or bad due to it’s adherence or non adherence to scientific principles. I get that part of the films promotion pushed that so it would be hypocritical to be lousy with the science (as it is in places) but this film fails due to a lack of suspense, woeful pacing and straight out annoying acting.

    There’s never really a sense of danger, just idiocy and the directors idea of “suspense” just means an overlong shot while someone is upset. Terrible

    However the visual spectacle is unparalleled, must be seen in 3d for that sole purpose

  • Man the haters of this film really come across as pretty insufferable. Opinions and all but damn just let people what a movie that a goddamn lot of people think is good.
