Gravity: The Only Film You Must See in the Theater

Gravity: The Only Film You Must See in the Theater

Gravity

There are a few movies that must be seen in a theater and in 3D if that is the chosen format. These films are the equivalent of seeing a live theatre performance. You will only truly see it once. Gravity is one of those rare movies where the form is more important than the story, yet the 3D special effects seem to blend into the background.

You will never truly see Gravity if you watch it on DVD in your home or when it inevitably airs on TV. Or, God-forbid, when you watch it on your phone.

My parents were pretty strict with which movies I was allowed to see as a child. I was not allowed to watch PG-13 films until I was 13, unless my mom saw them first and approved. I was once outcast at a slumber party at the age of 10 when my mom overheard one of the girls say we were going to watch Pulp Fiction. My mom refused to let me spend the night unless we watched a different movie. I stayed at the party and we ended up watching Forest Gump while all the girls gave me dirty looks for having such a “mean” mom.

All of this makes the fact that my parents let me see Jurassic Park when it originally came out in 1993 even more unbelievable. I was seven-years-old.  It was the first film I ever saw with just my dad. It was such a treat to do something just the two of us and made it even more special because it felt like such an adult film.
