There is a scene is the movie Interstellar where the hero is in a closed conference people with a bunch of people when in exasperation he asks, "Who are you people?" to which they reply, "Why, we're NASA" and for a moment it seems like the munchkins are going to get up and start dancing and singing.

The Martian is very much like that. A two plus hour movie about how wonderful NASA could be. Being a fan of NASA I was not too put off by that but I can imagine other people gagging throughout the film.

The surprising part in the movie is that the people who you think are going to die, don't. There was a no name guy in a figurative red shirt right at the start who I thought for sure was going to snuff it but made it all the way to the end.

There is a fun Lord of the Rings reference.

Oh, we saw the film at TIFF.

Just watched this one while recuperating from the shoulder surgery. (Shoulder still quite sore.)

Best thing I've seen out of Hollywood in years.

Almost makes up for the crap-fest History Channel has become.
