Over the weekend, many of you went out and saw Alfonso Cuarón's GRAVITY. The overwhelming amount of good reviews for the film were all over the internet. Many of them were short like, "Gravity was amazing. Now excuse me while I decompress for a couple of hours…" Cuarón spent longer than he originally intended to making this film. It completely worked in his favor since every moment in the film seems authentic.

One aspect that deserves praise has to be the sound design. Films over the years that have dealt with space did not seem to care as much for the minor details of how the atmosphere would effect sound. Soundworks Collection has put together a featurette which explores the science of sound in the film with director Cuarón and Re-recording mixer Skip Lievsay. It's around 9 and a half minutes, and well worth your time if you enjoyed the movie.

I think the sound was one of the things that made it so terrifying. The score also came in hard in the times when it should have. I really enjoyed how the compilation of the sound, score and visuals made the movie more terrifying and realistic than I could have imagined a story like this could be.

The sound design in the film was indeed really effective. The opening moments with the voices from Mission Control coming in from every far corner of the theatre was something I hadn't experienced before. I think it was a lot scarier seeing the explosions and not hearing them, it was foreign and surreal. Films like Armageddon seem to quickly forget that the story takes place outside Earth's atmosphere. Steven Price's score did blare a little at times, but I think it works as a juxtaposition
