First off - Matt Damon ❤️
The Martian is a film based on a science fiction novel by Andy Weir that follows astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) after he gets stranded on a deserted planet... Mars. Now, his crew doesn't leave him on purpose, there was a freak accident during a monstrous storm that left them to believe he was dead. But shocker! He was not. As NASA tries to figure out a way to help and save him, Mark has to find a way to survive on a planet alone, with little food and water. What I love most about this movie is all the science that he has to do so that he can stay alive. These things are better described in the book, which I would highly recommend if you haven't read it. It's just one thing after the other on
Chiwetel Ejiofor as key NASA employees tasked with helping out Mark and the other Hermes crew members. I think my favorite character (other than Mark Whatney of course) is Rich Purnell. The few scenes that he is in are just hilarious.
Well, that's all I have to say about The Martian, I loved it which makes it hard for me to write a post about (I know I don't get it either), but I strongly urge everyone else to watch it if you haven't already seen it.
