My favorite Martian has to be Matt Damon.
I am not a movie critic nor am I a movie reviewer...but if I was a reviewer I would give all my stars (excuse the pun) to "The Martian".
I felt a lot smarter having watched the movie because my favorite Martian explained along the way what he was doing to solve a problem. Not that I understood it, but hey, I was impressed someone was listening in all those science classes I did so poorly in. Good for him...
Think of this...no gun fights, no rapes, no violence of any kind. Add to that, people of all races cooperating to help this one astronaut get home. There is some strong language in places (I feel I must warn about that) but concentrate on the enormity of the problem and how no one gives up, or says it can't be done.
I love a movie that inspires me instead of terrifying me. I mean besides the whole stranded 30 million miles from home thing, that could be terrifying, but you know what I'm saying, right?
How handy was it that is was the botanist left behind? A genius botanist, and listen to this, he made water! California take note...who knew you could do that?
Also - note to self; do not attempt space travel without duct tape. It seems to be the universal go to product, and the only thing in the movie I completely understood.
Problem with the thieves at the movie theatre...not only is popcorn and a coke $14 but matinee prices end at 4 on Saturday. There are quite a few people at Century Theaters I shared my disappointment with. Thieves...
