Toronto Video Blog: Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity Is A Bona Fide Game-Changer

Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity is generating serious passion in Toronto. Start a conversation at a party or in a line about the “best” movie a person has seen, and nine times out of 10, they reply, “You mean besides Gravity?”

The film’s a bona-fide game changer. And the two most passionate voices I’ve encountered supporting the film belong to my colleagues: Houston’s own Jake Hamilton (@JakesTakes) and Kevin McCarthy of the nationally syndicated Fox & Friends and Fox 5 in Washington, D.C. We’ve been geeking out over Gravity for months, and were thrilled to be able to see it in Toronto.

The movie’s so mind-bogglingly special, so groundbreaking, that I had to assemble the Gravity crew to gush on a quick podcast about why we were transfixed by Cuaron’s masterpiece. I guarantee you will not hear a more spirited discussion on Gravity … at least, not until the movie opens on Oct. 4 and you guys can join the conversation!
