Gravity Movie vs The Martian vs Interstellar Movie

Maybe Gravity and Martian. But not Interstellar - in end, book-room in black hole just ruined all sci-fi elements of this movie. And time-travel too, in my opinion. Fantasy, mystic - yes. Sci-fi - no.

For me, I'd have to go with The Martian. Interstellar was a fun trip, but like Leto mentioned, the ending threw me off. It was more so fantasy than Sci-Fi. A great film to study and dissect but in terms of enjoyable, true Sci-Fi, I have to go with The Martian.

I can`t process why Gravity or Martian are favoured instead of Interstellar. 

Interstellar is more scientifically accurate that the other 2 coupled with the fact that the science elements in the movie required much more mathematical and graphical thoughts, creativity and imagination.

I do agree that the movie deprives its viewers of the enjoyment aspect but let`s face it - the original plot is gloomy & existing to and in unknown realms adds more downside to chances of survival(that why the lack of laugh,jokes,funny faces or hearty music in the film)

Even though, debates could rise as "WHY" the plot exists: since the past cannot be undone, "WHY" Cooper needed to enter the tesseract to send Morse Codes for Murphy to plead him to STAY when he cannot modify the past, "WHAT" is the plausible purpose of the tesseract, "HOW" did Copper dock the Endurance when he never left the stratosphere - where the movie never mentions the crew training together before the mission...

But, plot aside the movie was conceived onto not breaking existing physics laws althought its debatable in some areas { The Wormhole orbits saturn for 40+ years without affect space-time in the solar system, No body or spaceship can resist a black hole transit w/o being torn apart}

Nevertheless, Sci-Fi is defined as "a genre of speculative fiction dealing with imaginative concepts such as futuristic science and technology, space travel, time travel, faster than light travel, parallel universes and extraterrestrial life."

*Well, Interstellar definitely falls into the Sci-Fi Section.

_I`m not critising you guys but Interstellar is in my top list and I do not consider the Martian as a terrific movie, well I saw three quarter of it and am not keen to watch the rest of it.

As for Gravity, yeah - can watch it a couple of times again but the last part totally pisses me off. She must`ve landed into the vast ocean instead of a lake w.r.t gravitational pull.

Like Johan Thirapathi Appadu I would also choose Interstellar above the others.  The quantum physical theories this movie explores and the fact that it actually pushed scientific research into the phenomenon of black holes forward is just a testament of it's ingenuity.

Even though the martian is a good movie storywise, and its cinematography is top notch, it's scientific value is mediocre at best.
The movie never explores or even mentions the fact that Mars has only 38% of Earths standard Gravity.

Gravity is a movie I just didn't like. I watched it once and will never watch it again. This movie simply does not offer any enjoyable scientific plot whatsoever, but is just another action movie with a protagonist that somehow gets out alive against all the odds.
