2. Was it more, or less, cringeworthy then "Gravity?"

I can watch something like Star Wars or a superhero movies as fantasy but "Gravity" didn't work for me.

"The Martian," a similar "realistic" movie, wasn't so bad. Even though it was set on a Mars that doesn't exist in our universe, it was for the most part internally consistent. The physics of its imaginary universe got bent at times but didn't bounce all over the place and give me a headache.

The physics of "Gravity" was just lazy, bending and twisting and shaking to suit the story, and without any Doctor Strange in the background to account for that. I've heard the same about Ad Astra.
