Has anyone here seen this yet? I haven't, but originally wasn't interested. After seeing some of the reviews, I'm changing my mind. Even Phil Plaitt, the Bad Astronomer says that while they took liberties with orbital mechanics and such, a lot was right in the science.

Normally I won't see a 3D movie that was done in post production, but this one is one of the exceptions I think. Considering the environment that it takes place in, it makes sense.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson was more critical on the science, but there comes a point where they get too nit picky. I once was called out as wrong for saying a DirecTV satellite was at 103, because I didn't specify West.

We just saw this today, fantastic film. I didn't really care about the inaccuracies, it was so well done that it didn't matter. Plus they got so much right that is so often wrong, the sound etc (if assuming you're hearing what Ryan is hearing in the suit.)
Works very well on IMAX, stunning visuals and the weightless effects were exceptional.

I expected more. I was a bit disappointed especially with all the great reviews.
