I went to see America's latest attempt to rescue Matt Damon last night and basically I loved it. It was a great movie, though I could have done with even more stuff about the engineering challenges from the NASA/JPL side of things. I also cackled a lot at all the movie in-jokes, and it was interesting to see that Ridley Scott can still make good movies. Today I tore through the viral promo videos and cackled at them too, particularly at Neil DeGrasse Tyson's special episode of Star Talk. Then I realized that 2035 is only 20 years away. Dang.

All that being said, they should have kept Mindy Park Korean, because the actresses playing her and the media relations director look so much alike (thanks Hollywood beauty standards) that at times it was a little hard to keep them straight. The Ares 3 crew seemed a little white for 2035, too, and I could have done with a few more women at JPL. Ah well. If Belgian movie theaters had matinee pricing, I'd totally go see it again.

How can any movie theatre survive without matinee pricing?

Thanks for the review, you've increased the chance I'll see it. D'you think seeing it on a smaller home screen would be a tragic mismatch?

I went and saw this on Wednesday and quite enjoyed it. I guess I missed where it takes place in 2035? Anyway, I was happier not knowing the date because it made some nebulous future. Being just down the road from NASA at the time I was thinking it was a shame that we might never actually go to Mars.

It was a quality movie. I'm glad I got the time to go see it.

Hope you are enjoying Belgium!
