Movie Review: The Martian by Ridley Scott (Five Stars)

Movie Review: The Martian by Ridley Scott

Five Stars out of Five.

The best science fiction movie I’ve seen this decade. Most of the promotional stuff was not in the movie.

Follows the book—mostly. Good script; good cast; good effects. Looked as if it was filmed on mars, not in front of a blue screen.

This is real science fiction. All those others (Star Wars/Trek, Doctor Who, Marvel, etc.) are fantasy in a “scientific” or alternate universe setting.)

Matt Damon nailed Mark Watney.

See it.

  2. Going this afternoon. Glad it all comes together in the film. Matt Damon does wonderful work. All sorts of quirky roles. I’ve never seen a dud.
