“The Martian”: Still Looking Good!

Here is the first review for the movie, an adaptation of Andy Weir’s excellent hard sci-fi novel about a man who gets trapped on Mars.

Actually, it’s better than I expected. My suspicion was that it would get mediocre critical reviews due to its lack of action and abundance of technical and scientific jargon, but that real hard-core sci-fi fans and big fans of the book it is based on would love it.

I would be happy if I turn out to be wrong, but what I really appreciate about this reivew is that it mentions the movie’s faithfulness to the book and says it keeps to the book’s meticulous scientific accuracy. Way cool.

I’ll be shelling out the extra cash for IMAX the day this comes out!
