R&R The Martian


This is definitely more of a Rave than a Rant for me… I thoroughly enjoyed the science behind this movie… Matt Damon did an excellent job with his monologue acting… which is something I usually hate…

*think of the movie Phone Booth, with Colin Ferrell … I wanted to shoot Ferrell and myself for watching that movie… I wanted to cry over the two hours of my life that I would never get back… *

thankfully, The Martian didn’t cause regret… I could see how kids could watch this movie and get excited about science, how finding a way to live on another planet might some day be possible… I could see the world branching out and growing bigger…

On just the movie and the acting, there were moments of laughter and sadness… Matt Damon made his plight believable … buuutttt

the one thing that had me shaking my head was the energy and strength left in a person (Damon and the other actors) after such an extended time in space, but especially Damon… with restricted food intake, lack of exercise equipment, and differing gravity, I didn’t think that his character should have had the strength to complete some of the tasks he preformed by the end of the movie… they did make him look beat up and skinny, but still he had energy… surely his character would have showed more strain…

That aside, I would sooo watch this movie again… and it would be a great movie to show in junior HS and High School… get the kids fired up by duplicating some of the experiments in the movie… in a safer way… lol… lets not blow up the kids…
