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…

Okay…. so this is a Rant… and others may disagree… and I have be informed that if I had waited a little longer to leave the theater, I would have been in stitches… but come on… I was an hour into the film and I broke… I couldn’t take it anymore… I took my popcorn and made a run for it…

I go through some pain to enjoy a movie at the movie theater, and this was Tina Fey… I expected to laugh before the first thirty minutes were up… and instead I reached the hour mark and begged to leave… I had sat there as others teeheed with humor and felt nothing but confusion… why the heck didn’t I think it was funny… I guess I just had higher humor standards for a movie with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler … for an hour, the movie felt stilted and slow… like something made for a high school videographer project…

sooo yeah… this is a rant…

others have said that if I waited for the dance party mix, it saved the show… but to tell the truth, I was bored out of my mind and felt that I had already seen all there was to enjoy when I watched the trailers at home…
