** The reoccurring [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pu52LGUvixc Debris]] {{Leitmotif}}, for whenever the debris shows up, which sounds eerily like the {{Film/Jaws}} leitmotif.

* SciFiGhetto: [[DefiedTrope Defied]]. The film earned high scoring reviews from critics, became a box office smash and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, 7 of which it won (including Best Director for Cuarón). It still played straight (albeit in less degree) in Mexico, Cuaron's homeland.

It still played straight (albeit in less degree) in Mexico, Cuaron's homeland. It also showed how pervasive this trope is - many outlets called it a science fiction film, only for others to point out that it's ''not''. It's a DisasterMovie set in space, and aside from some ArtisticLicence with the physics (glossed-over orbital mechanics, the ISS and Tiangong being virtual neighbours, etc), it's set entirely in our mundane reality.

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

* {{HSQ}}: '''Extremely''' high. The film can almost be panic-inducing due to its relentless pacing and intense visual style. The 3D makes you truly feel the terror that comes from the incomprehensible vastness of space.

* HellIsThatNoise: The frequent horn-like crescendos used as the {{Leitmotif}} for the satellite debris. When you hear it, [[ParanoiaFuel you know something is about to go wrong]].

* AcceptableTargets: A Russian anti-satellite missile test triggers a series of DisasterDominoes that sets back ''every'' country's space program by decades. In RealLife, China was the only country to have conducted an anti-satellite missile test that created a space debris problem, it just wasn't as serious as this.

Meanwhile the actual Russia's space program is one of its most successful and lucrative programs, so the country is very careful to avoid threatening this status quo.

* 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.
