Hi, I’m Lucy, and I’m going to review “Gravity.” Last night, I wanted to watch a movie with my mom and dad. We were choosing from the list that you all recommended for her. “Gravity” is on that list. Now let’s start with the basics. This woman has really bad luck. “Gravity” is a very scary movie, and I think to watch it you should be at least 10. I almost peed in my pants (a couple of times.) “Gravity’s” main character is a female. There’s not a lot of females as the protagonist so this is rare.
In my picture, you can kinda see what I meant about bad luck.The protagonist is a brave woman and she never gives up. Whenever I watch a movie about someone who’s brave and never gives up, I always wonder what it would be like to be that person. You’d have a lot of pressure (just like I have a lot of pressure when my mom puts broccoli on my plate.)
Ryan gave up at one point, thinking she had nothing to live for. Then, she realizes she’s going to have to keep trying, and after that, she knows she can make it. Ryan’s daughter died when she was 4. Ryan misses her very much. She misses how happy she was when she saw her daughter having fun. Remembering her love for her daughter, she knew she couldn’t give up even though it was going to be a hell of a journey. Ryan says:
I really think this is a good movie, and all of the people who have watched “Gravity” should tell people about it. Tell them how brave and smart Ryan is. Tell them about her sacrifices, the ones that she knew had to happen. Tell them about how she learned to never give up.
Margot, I’m interested to hear what you thought of Gravity. I loved the suspense and the special effects, but I’m afraid I have to agree with (editor) Cheryl Klein’s review, which is here: http://chavelaque.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/the-feminist-thing-that-irritated-hell.html
I loved it, though I posted a link to a negative review here before I saw it with my daughter. the review I read said she screamed too much. I thought the movie was epic, a hero’s quest, a rebirth. Will read the review you posted.
Lucy, you’re a very skilled writer, indeed. And it’s great that you’re interested in heroes in science! The scientific community needs as many smart minds as it can get. Long ago NASA not only would not let women be astronauts, but also made sure their astronauts had wives who stayed at home! NASA’s gotten smarter since then. Lucy, it sounds like you’re going to be a hero, too.
Lucy, you sound like a writer! Maybe you can review movies for a newspaper one day or something! 🙂
