comment How can weightlessness be simulated on film?
Gravity had some scenes filmed underwater, but water causes challenges for lighting. This is a list question, because there is no right answer and movie directors will implement the effect anyway they can. It's a challenge to do it better than the previous space movie.

comment How can weightlessness be simulated on film?
The rotating sets in 2001 were created to make the actors look like they were walking with magnetic boots (when in the transport craft), and to show Dave jogging around the crew cabin. The other actor was strapped to his chair as the entire set rotated. Very cool, but not to simulate weightlessness more like simulated gravity.

comment A movie about getting to a fake utopian planet / virtual environment
I was going to say it describes many TV episodes. There is one just like this in Stargate, Outer Limits and a few others.

comment What happened at the end of Rocky?
It's a common ending to a boxing match. Winner by decision of the judges. This happens when both fighters last for the duration of the scheduled rounds.
