i don’t watch movies as often as i probably should or would like to, but last night i did. the last movie i saw before this one was Inside Out, which we all know is an amazing Disney Pixar movie. those, i can never resist. actually, i even watched it by myself, cuz i was too impatient to wait around for my friends’ schedules to open up to watch it. but that was around 3-4 months ago. i also tend to like movies that are initially best-selling books, because that way, i know they’ve surpassed a certain level of quality. The Martian is one such movie.
The Martian was great, although you might not think it upon watching the trailers. matt damon was amazing. i almost forgive him for all the racist comments he’s been making these past few weeks. have you guys caught wind of that on youtube? yeah, he made some pretty callous remarks about diversity in hollywood…but he might just be confused right now, so ima let it slide for now. nevertheless, his performance was commendable, and he played the role really well.
rottentomatoes never lies! The Martian scored a 94% on it, and it lived up to it. watch it if you get a chance, even if you’re not super into astrophysics or space.
