A couple weeks ago, Amanda and I went to see a new movie we had heard about called Gravity. Truthfully, I didn't really know what to expect. When I first heard of Gravity, it was my dad that had told me about it. He said that it was "pretty good," and "showed you exactly what would happen to your head if you took your helmet off in space." It sounded legit to Amanda and I, so we went.
I will never again watch that movie.
Don't get me wrong, it was an amazing movie, and was extremely well done (like the entire first half was done in a single take). There was something wrong though.

No joke. That movie had me at the edge of my seat the entire time.
Also, one other thing! Thanks Gravity (dripping with sarcasm)!! When I was little, I really wanted to be an astronaut. That dream has pretty much stayed with me up until I saw that DREAM-DESTROYER of a movie! One thing's for sure; I am going to live a safe life INSIDE Earth's atmosphere with my feet safely on the ground.
My Thought Process While Watching Gravity:
Oh, okay. . . they're in space.
(15 minutes later. . .)
They're still doing the same thing. When's this gonna get exciting?
(A while later)
I thought this was going to be more like Star Trek.

Why didn't she die just then?

(The end of the movie)
I am NEVER becoming an astronaut! EVER
I firmly believe everyone should see Gravity, so I can have multiple shoulders to cry on, and your dreams can be crushed too :)
