The Martian

I’m trying to be less excited about this movie because…well, it’s a big budget Hollywood movie…but I love this type of movie where it’s essentially a figure-it-out type of plot. The hero needs to make decisions and commit to a possibly flawed premise but is inherently smart enough (by inherently, I mean that nowadays, we’re pretty aware that to become an astronaut you have to be pretty freaking intelligent in the traditional study-your-ass-off sense, smart in a think-on-your-feet way, cool under pressure, confident but not arrogant, etc…because a deficient of any of those things could kill you and others) for a low-probability end goal to seem a bit possible, which is vital for me to root for him…I just don’t want the movie to be…dumb… 😛 .
