It took over a week before it hit me as to why I liked the movie Gravity so much - because it reminded me of living with type I diabetes, because I am comfortable with jumping from one situation to the next.

Here is a great discussion of the making of the movie in Wired Magazine in October 2013. Even if you have not seen it the story is very good.

Over the weekend i did a review of film Gravity including some interesting items that were not apparent from IMBD. Feel free to comment on, disagree with, take exception too or agree with in the group Dinner and a Movie. Dinner and a movie is a non exclusive group, we are just a group of people who like movies and like to comment about them, If you wish to disagree with (I rated it 3.5 out 5 test strips) please feel free. When we have discussion and disagreement then the group is more fun. We take all joiners and woud love to have anyone reading this blog. Dinner and a movie is part of the TUD site and can be found at:

I hope you join us, and write a review or two if you like.
