I was already kind of traumatized by watching Sandra Bullock hurtling through the vast nothingness of space in Gravity; the idea of seeing the movie without its score, where space is as audibly empty as it is visually, sounds chilling. And that's exactly what we're going to get in a new special Gravity Blu-ray.

The New Diamond Luxe Edition Blu-ray of Gravity will feature an extra audio soundtrack that omits Steven Price's score, called the "Silent Space Version." Details are scarce, but I'm confident it won't just be the movie on mute — we'll hear everything Sandra Bullock would hear, including herself and her radio, but nothing else.

This sounds awesome. And kind of terrifying. No pun intended, but the score kept the action and the movie grounded, in a sense — to lose it will make Bullock's isolation even more harrowing. I'm in.

I watch a good deal of BBC America, and something I've come to realize is that American TV and movies really overdo it on musical scores. In Britain and the rest of Europe, they aren't afraid to let silences set a mood effectively, but in the US nearly every second of film has some kind of incidental music going. It's like being around one of those people who can't stand it when someone isn't talking and has to fill every second with mindless chatter just to break up the quiet.
