More About The Martian

We recently saw The Martian and really enjoyed it. It was a long movie but I was so interested that I didn’t notice. Some movies that have a main character who is alone for a long time are very long, boring and depressing. It’s like Cast Away but on Mars in that the main character is left all alone and has to figure out ways to survive. But this film isn’t depressing. In fact, I’m fascinated by how the main character Mark Watney (Matt Damon) gets up every day and works on solving a problem. For example, he figured out a way to grow his own food. It’s actually very inspiring. Plus, NASA collaborated on the film extensively so a lot of it is based on reality, which is also fascinating.
Members of NASA and a team of international scientists want to bring him home. There are some tense moments but there is greatness. I love how the team cares about each other and there’s a common feeling of humanity and brother/sisterhood.
According to Wikipedia, the movie was filmed in the Middle Eastern desert of Wadi Rum, Jordan. It had some breathtaking shots and views of space.
Absolutely fabulous science and drama with acting impact images brilliant for great fun and serious learning for all ages and all studies – we live in space age and the birth of colonization is beautiful in the name of survival and destiny for all times……
