The Martian (2015)

“I’m gonna have to science the shit out of this.”

What’s it about?

Matt Damon is the remaining survivor of 4 brothers, is trapped in another galaxy, gets left behind on Mars by his crew after going missing in a storm. With limited supply, he must make contact with his crew or NASA while trying to stay alive in a planet that’s constantly trying to kill him.

Who’s in it?

Matt Damon , Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Peรฑa, The Winter Soldier, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Childish Gambino.

Why should I watch it?

+ (Inter)Stellar cast
+ Uplifting and doesn’t get too depressing
+ Funnier than expected
+ The crew seem like they were actual friends
+ Has some very cool shots
+ 70s/80s disco soundtrack reminiscent of the hit Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack
+ Risk and probabilities bring up moral dilemmas
+ Iron Man reference

Why shouldn’t I watch it?

– Based on a book, so the book is automatically better
– If maths or science made you cry in school
– If you’re Neil Armstrong

Anything else?

Has a great message that everyone can get behind on, working together to do good and using problem solving skills to deal with one problem at a time. This trip to Mars is worth it. Just make sure to bring extra packets of ketchup.

8/10

  1. Saw this movie finally and it is interesting. However, the one part that is somewhat questionable is why would they bring heavy potatoes on board when they can have the powder or seeds? I think that part was a stretch.
