The Martian

Truthfully, I’m not a huge fan of the book or movie, but if I had to pick, the movie is better. Drew Goddard took “The Martian’s” semi-ludicrous plot and turned it into crowd-pleasing entertainment. The cast breath new life in the characters, and Ridley Scott turned out some of his finest directorial work in years.
