Neil deGrasse Tyson, who we can safely say is the most famous Astrophysicist, took to twitter to rant about ALL the problems with the movie Gravity (which was released this past weekend and made over $50 million). Now, if you weren't one of the many who saw this movie this weekend, you are NOT going to want to read his tweets. So in other words, SPOILER ALERT. You've been warned.

My Tweets hardly ever convey opinion. Mostly perspectives on the world. But if you must know, I enjoyed #Gravity very much.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) October 7, 2013
