* 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.

* 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).

* 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.

!!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.

* 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.
