The Martian (2015)

Recommended Posts

I just finished reading The Martian by Andy Weir. It's great. It's an exacting hard sci-fi novel in terms of its science stuff, but it also has funny, pleasant, well-developed characters. It's really nice to read a future book that isn't incredibly pessimistic and cynical.

 

And who's directing the movie? Ridley Scott. I guess he could conceivably be a good choice, if he resurrects the "Alien before the alien busts out" vibes, but his recent track record doesn't scream lightness and joy.

 


It's the side effects that save us.

Ahem.
