Gravity

While pundits, critics, prognosticators and more have all weighed in on the Oscar season movies, leave it to Louis C.K. to be the most vociferously vocal about the movies he didn't like this year. And two in particular certainly raised the ire (and hilarity) of Louis C.K.

Stopping by "Opie & Anthony" this week, the comedian ripped into the well-regarded survival flicks, Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" and J.C. Chandor's "All Is Lost." In terms of the former, he criticized it for casting pretty people in the lead roles but, more importantly, for making Dr. Ryan Stone such a "reluctant" astronaut when, for anyone going into space, it's the culmination of a life-long dream. He called out the film's physics for not being accurate as well. Meanwhile, he called "All Is Lost" a "piece of shit" movie, mostly because Robert Redford's character seems to make bad decisions for the entire film or give up far too easily. 

It's all subjective of course, but dosed with Louis C.K.'s acerbic delivery it's pretty funny stuff. Hear his comments for yourself below (it starts around 16:30).
