So a couple of nights ago, I got to see this film with my buddy. So let's go through the good and the bad and see if Ridley Scott is back!
Good: Holy shit, this is a really incredible movie! I also had no idea that this movie was also going to have some great humor! I really like that they added humor to this movie because it really separates this film from other darker survivor films, though don't go into this thinking that it's a comedy movie, because it's still pretty dramatic. Speaking of dramatic, the acting in this movie is outstanding, like I'm not going to be surprised if some of these guys like Matt Damon or Jeff Daniels get some Academy nominations at least! Also, for us nerds, it's nice to see the Invisible Woman, The Winter Soldier, and Luis from Ant-Man go to Mars! Another thing that's great about this movie is that it looks like it was actually shot on Mars! The effects in this movie was so stunning I was never taken out of the film!
Bad: Honestly, it was really hard for me to think of some bad things for this movie! I only have two complaints, the first one is that there is this one romance in the film that I found unnecessary, and then the last thing that I had a problem with is I wish this film was longer(even though it's pretty long already), I felt like there was so much more in this film to tell!
So overall, I think The Martian is one of the best films of the year, so I'm going to give it an 8.75/10. Probably my favorite survivor film of all time! This is definitely a film to go out and see right now!
P.S. GO TO THE BATHROOM BEFORE THIS FILM. I was struggling at the end of this film because I had to pee so bad!
