Yeah, almost everyone else in the world watched Gravity on a big* screen in the theaters when it came out last year. Hilde and I finally got around to watching it from Netflix last night. The early trailers I saw on TV actually made me reluctant to watch it on a big screen; the many vertiginous sequences of spinning and tumbling were dizzying enough on the small screen.
Great action movie. One non-stop, barely-survivable crisis after another. Sort of a gun-free Die Hard sans the human villainy of Alan Rickman.
Post-viewing, some of the presentation and science is questionable. Here's a list. That "The cables are slipping!" scene gave me momentary pause while watching, but most of what was on the screen was stuff I willingly suspended any disbelief in until afterwards.
As an action movie, I'd give it about a 9 on a 1-to-10 scale. On the space-geek scale, about a 7.
And I learned that Hilde really doesn't like George Clooney. (Just because he's a smug jerk who tends to play smug jerks onscreen....) At least he disappears** from the story fairly early on.
*"big" has a flexible value here. The screens in movie multiplexes are a lot smaller than they were in the standalone theaters I frequented in my youth and young adulthood (though the multiplex screens have gotten better in recent years; for a while, some of the multiplex screens weren't much bigger than the bigger flat-screen TVs found in "home theaters".) Watching the opening scenes of the first Star Wars movie on the Cine Capri's humonguous screen (70' x 30') was the very definition of awesome.
**Twice, actually, if you want to be picky.
