Since the first trailer for the Martian dropped several months ago we here at The Clash have been overly excited for the movie.
The novel it’s based on, and one of my favorite books ever, is one that is extremely straight forward and easy to adapt to film. If Andy Weir, the book’s author, came out and said, “I wrote this book with a film in mind” I would wouldn’t be shocked because a lot of it reads like a screen play (like other grate book to film adaptions like Fight Club and Thank You For Smoking).
So I was excited to see all the positive reviews for this movie today, right now at Rotten Tomatoes is stands at a 93% positive rating. I’m no film critic so I won’t bore you with the review, I’ll simply leave you with one of my favorite YouTube reviewers to handle that for me.
