"The Martian" is a kind of retelling of "The Castaway" in space. As with Tom Hanks character who is stuck on a unknown island for five years, so to is Matt Damon's character left to survive on his own, though in this instance he has an entire planet to himself! This is a fantastic film. Spoilers not needed - only a ticket. Definitely one for the big screen. Not to be missed.
This film has solidified one true fact - Duct Tape - it will fix everything.
