Base Breaker is for characters only and Broken Base would require two or more differing opinions.
* BaseBreaker: While Cuaron didn't suffer of this as bad in Mexico as his fellow countryman Creator/EugenioDerbez for doing ''Film/InstructionsNotIncluded'', he suffered some backlash in his native country just because [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism he didn't make a movie who could take place in Mexico, with a more realistic, depressing and cynical plot]], and instead he did [[ValuesDissonance an unrealistic (for Mexicans, anyway) sci-fi flick about astronauts]]. This is possibly the cause why Cuaron decided not to thank his country when he won the Oscar as Best Director, when this is culturally a norm for Mexicans for do so when winning a prize overseas. Ironically, the film somewhat still fits with the traditional Mexican tropes regarding this, except with a bigger budget.

But why did you delete SCIA?
* HeReallyCanAct: As odd as it sounds to say about an actress with a long career before the film that included an Oscar win, many had this reaction to Sandra Bullock, as she was mostly regarded as a lightweight romantic comedy star (with said Oscar being for ''Film/TheBlindSide'', prime OscarBait of the maudlin kind).

* TheWoobie: Dr. Ryan Stone. ** Aningaaq isn't having a great day either.

As much as I love Gravity, I really can't deny that the Hype Baclash exists.
* HypeBacklash: The near unanimous praise and the fact that it was among the highest grossing films of 2013 led to just as many people wondering what all the fuss is about.

* SoCoolItsAwesome: For many who've seen the film.

Added DiffLines:
* NauseaFuel: All the spinning camera shots can make a person dizzy.

!!The TV Series * SeasonalRot: If the first few episodes are quite interesting, the show becomes pretty bad pretty soon. ** I do believe this is on the wrong page.

This doesn't belong as a trope or YMMV or Trivia or anything
* TheBechdelTest: This film is often used as an example of how the test can be mis-applied. The Bechdel Test requires there to be more than one female character in the film, so ''Gravity'' fails by default, despite its themes being very conducive to a feminist analysis. It does pass the alternative [[Film/PacificRim Mako Mori Test]] by having 1) a female character with 2) her own story arc that 3) is not about supporting a male character's story arc.

* TheBechdelTest: Often used as an example to show the failings of too strict adherence to the test: there is only a single female character who never converses with another, she is the main character, a scientist, the only relationship she really talks about is with her dead daughter, and the themes of the film are very conducive to a feminist analysis.

* {{HSQ}}: '''Extremely''' high. The film can almost be panic inducing due to its relentless pacing and intense visual style.
