the martian


Left behind on lifeless Mars, a NASA scientist must find ways to survive the grueling terrain for as long as he can.

Equipped with a super brain, the scientist, played by Matt Damon, creates a video log of his plan to survive on Mars with limited resources. Whether or not his antics are realistic or humanly possible, I learned a thing or two. I was left wishing my level of intelligence were comparable.

If you’re worried that this is like Gravity or Interstellar, worry not. It’s quite different and entertaining.

Verdict: Worth the time! Maybe read the book too!
