1. FILM: Gravity
It’s no secret that Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity is something special. The director of the sexually subversive Y Tu Mama También and the dark parable Children of Men brought two of our sunniest movie stars to space and messed them up. Clooney is fine, doing a version of his real-life persona, but Bullock is at her best; it’s impossible to take your eyes off her. As an astronaut lost in space, Bullock personifies female power and determination, without turning into caricature. Gravity is a story of finding yourself alone and forging forward, looking inward for strength. Bullock’s character of Ryan Stone will go down as a science fiction heroine for the ages, on par with Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley in Alien. The score and cinematography are revelatory; 3D is a must. — Neal Broverman
