Out of the sky it came, like a spaceship itself. Description During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. The Martian character has been transposed into our time, not the well-mannered 1960's Martian. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. The pacing and editing of this movie was some of the best I've seen, in fact, some of the one-liners from the book are done so quickly it pushed the story forward relentlessly.
There is no possible reason I can fathom why this movie was ever made. Daniels is okay as the earthling but Lloyd is simply terrible as the alien, overacting up a storm. He believes that he isn't going to die on Mars, and this transforms this rather depressing situation into something comical instead. One thing that struck me is that everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, and I think that could be a testament to the originality and uniqueness of the book. The Martian is a new Ridley Scott classic, featuring his best work in years, the best performance I've ever seen from Matt Damon, an outstanding supporting cast, a surprisingly funny screenplay from Daredevil creator Drew Goddard, and a great narrative that ties the film together beautifully.
When a movie is this colourful and enjoyable and funny, who cares about originality?!!!! Along the way he also gets the girl, Hannah. But somehow Disney manages to screw things up in spite of their abundant resources. Disney can afford the best writers, the best producers and directors, but still. One day he views a space ship come out of the atmosphere and watches it crash in front of him. The sad thing is that I suspect Disney in their arrogance does not even know when a movie is good or bad. The landscape of Mars looks absolutely breathtaking, and the scenes aboard the Hermes and back on Earth are just as sharp in detail and scope.
My favourite martian is an upbeat comedy about a reporter jeff Daniels who one night witnesses a u. I wasn't exactly disappointed, but I was a bit let down. But they found new ways to do things. The suit was creative, and I found him to be one of the funniest characters. Many times during this film, I legitimately believed that Mark Watney was a real, living person that was actually stranded on Mars for many months alone. In fact, here's a list of 100 that makes up the embarrassment: 1.
I saw it with my parents when I was 10. I believe anyone who reads the book is captivated and involved with the story from beginning to end, and it's possible this comes across in all phases of the production; the acting, the sets, sound, everything. Then he discovers ice cream, and all he wants to do is eat ice cream. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return. It has a lot of talent, a lot of material, and an okay outcome.
Adventure Science Fiction Action During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. It's Cast Away meets Apollo 13, and this marriage is crafted beautifully. Must be the sugar-rush in the vanilla and chocolate. The film just did not have a well built story. My Favorite Martian was gonna be like many others I thought.
He had all the perfect characteristics, but this still doesn't save a poorly written film. The film is hilarious in some parts, in fact I'd argue that it's funnier than most comedies that have come out this year. They all knew they had some great material to work with and ran with it. As expected with Ridley Scott films, the film itself is visually stunning. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return. The only highlight in this film, yes, actually there was one, occurred when Ray Walston finally made an appearance at the end. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet.
The romance is put on hold at separate times during the film, and so we never truly get a handle on the whole bit. And it's a great movie, a classic by all means. Elizabeth Hurley obviously has neither shame nor acting abilities at least they are well hidden. The most surprisingly element about this movie though was the screenplay. It was a bit less than I expected, but it was still entertaining. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. The usual wackiness ensues with the human, Bridges, eventually bonds with him and helps him to get home.
He sure has a funny way of promoting his Purple Rose Theatre. After seeing the movie, I caught a re-run of the old show and appreciated how funny it really was. The way he chose to make this film made it almost seem like an exceptionally made biopic. I just love the animated Zoot, he's hilarious! Pleasant enough to pass some spare time if you have not got anything better to view. He finds a Martian Christopher Lloyd who transforms into a human figure and turns his life around.
