    "The entire movie Gravity is about the struggle of getting out of space and getting back to earth after things went out of hand. The CGIs are so incredible and mindblowing and convincing. I like the first person shot thats gave me the feeling of how it is to be an astronaut. "

    "Christopher Nolan directing this movie has given me the expectation of perfection. I've seen his previous movies and they are spectacular. For the Interstellar, I got connected to McConaughey's character and his family, but I found the ending lacked emotional impact."

    "The Martian is about an astronaut being left behind on Mars during a space expedition. This was one of the best movie so far. Despite the serious situation Matt Damon was in, he was so hilarious. He's so terrific in this movie because he was able to pull off the humor."

    "This movie was said to have been filmed at low budget but look at the set! The sets are amazing and the performance is amazing that made me connect to him. He has to cling to his sanity all throughout the movie and that made me appreciate the actor's performance. The ending wasn't the kind I expected but it's so amazing."

    "HAL is the computer character I can't forget about this movie. He's so super smart and error-free! He's voiced as male so I'm referring to him as 'he'. He's super smart that he became the element for man versus machine present in this movie which actually got me thrilled when this first came out."

    "The acting is excellent with the background music score going well along with this movie. It's too bad this movie is underrated because honestly, for a 2000s sci-fi the graphics are accurate to the laws of physics."

    "This is a classic movie that my dad watched again the other day. I joined him in and did not regret watching this. This movie still holds up to its theme of survival of the fittest. The stunts are excellent! I don't think such editing technology had already existed at the time of filming this movie (1968). This gave off a natural feel of the movie even if this is supposed to be scifi."
