Nasa astronaut Chris Hadfield
has been to space three times, has participated in two space walks, and has served as the commander of the International Space Station. Hadfield joined Vanity Fair
this week to review space films such as Christopher Nolan
,” James Gray
’s “Ad Astra
,” and Stanley Kubrick
’s “2001: A Space Odyssey
,” but no movie is the object of the astronaut’s scorn as much as Alfonso Cuarón
.” Hadfield admits Cuarón’s 2013 Oscar winner boasts great visual effects and a magnificent depiction of a space walk in its opening scene, but that’s about it when it comes to praise. Much of “Gravity
” is “so far from reality that I want to turn my head,” Hadfield says in the video below.
Hadfield’s first major criticism is how extremely “Gravity” violates the laws of physics. Take the scene where a satellite crashes into the International Space Station.
