Honest trailers - "Gravity"

I picked this up from the Time magazine news feed, who have the following to say on the subject:
Just in time for the Oscars, the ever-observant Screen Junkies have brought us a new “Honest Trailer” — this time for Best Picture contender Gravity.

Basically, they pinpoint just about every criticism you probably had while watching the film — or the criticisms you didn’t realize you had until now. For example: Sandra Bullock’s character appears to have had little to no astronaut training, the film is essentially an hour and a half of people bumping into things and trying to grab things, and watching it on anything other than an IMAX screen will be wildly disappointing.

If you haven’t seen Gravity, be warned that this does contain some major spoilers. But it also might convince you not to see Gravity at all, in which case, spoilers are irrelevant.

You're right. Watching a negative trailer makes you see everything in a critical light and now I couldn't bear to watch a movie that is so obviously wrong in so many ways. I'm amazed Honest Trailers are still operating.
