The Martian

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. 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. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring "the Martian" home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney's safe return.

The movie is based on Andy Weir's novel which is quite technical. I felt the film made the story more enjoyable. And this time Matt Damon was a good astronaut and a true botanist too. Unlike his character in Interstellar, he uses his ingenuity for survival. Filled with lots of awesomeness in just might want to see it twice. I hope this film wins some awards.

SCENE STEALER goes to the wonderful Donald Glover who must be the most unlikely problem solver around, but he can definitely put his spin on any scene..even in a movie like THE MARTIAN.
