Have not see it and all the trailers and stuff gave me a big giant MEH. But apparently there must be something good about this film, so can anyone who saw it explain what made a chick floating through space for maybe an hour(?) so good?

post spoilers if you want to but make sure you still use the spoiler tag, in case some guy who didn't read the topic title walks in anyway.

I don't need spoilers: Alfonso Cuarón

Dude made one of the best movies ever made and looks like he's doing it again.

I think people on the fence aren't really appreciating how insane the cinematography looks.

Well not just camera angles, but the super long shots that the director uses really ramp the intensity in action/scary scenes. It sounds like a small detail but it is huge, not to mention extremely difficult to do. If you don't care for that kinda stuff no biggie, but honestly thats why I want to see it.

Well yeah... that's kinda why movies are considered art.

Everyone likes seeing beautiful things rather it be paintings, pictures, clothes, cars, women,etc. People have different taste and really some people can appreciate it and others can not.

Movies are ment to be entertaining yes, but the truly great movies are those that move you based on entertainment, acting, directing, etc.

And don't let the simple concept be a turn off, you can break down most movies into simple concepts. 12 angry men is about a jury, Jaws is about a killer shark, etc

I dont know if I can get worked up too much about the cinematography when most of it is just shots of obvious cg green screen work.

It's a white-knuckle thriller. Not since Jurassic Park has there been a perfect marriage of thrill-ride and state-of-the-art movie technology.
