It’s an accomplishment of the film itself seems to recognize with a victory-lap end-credit sequence that gives all of the above their own resolution moments and title cards. His work ranged from a supernatural piece about death, called “The Egg”, to fan fiction set in the universe of Doctor Who. On the seemingly endless screen, the Red Planet looks foreboding yet inviting.
Matt needed to multi-task monologs in The Martian, as his person Astronaut Mark Watney is stuck on Mars, the undertaking didn’t look so hard for my son after seeing the movie voraciously.
Scott shoots on four cameras at a time. It’s fun watching him figure out how to plant his garden – with some clever editing, Scott speeds up the process of waiting for the sprouts – or find 1,001 uses for a plastic tarp. The initial premise – that NASA will be taking humans back and forth to Mars on the regular just a few decades from now – is as farfetched as the movie gets.
What’s most believable about “The Martian” is the way astronauts, ground controllers and the other members of NASA’s team interact in the movie, Barratt said.
The story has already ignited the conversation about a manned mission to Mars. The visuals [were] something that couldn’t be done in the book and was done beautifully in the movie. In The Martian, opening Friday and likely bound for awards-season glory, Damon is Mark Watney, a botanist and engineer who has been camped on Mars with his Ares 3 shipmates (Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, among them). But the pacing has clearly been timed out for a viewer with only a passing interest in the details: As soon as you start scratching your head, Watney has moved on to something else. I think it was a fantastic job. The response was that the technology is nearly there, but not the human body. They have to be lifted out of the capsule and put in lawn chairs on the ground.
“Then around the time Interstellar came out, Ridley Scott had this film and the character was an astronaut, so I knew it would be the ideal project where I could learn as much as I wanted to”. This is an overwhelming picture, oversized in its scope and ambition, especially when viewed in 3-D: It’ll wow you with shots of jumbo metal space gears churning around and lots of people floating – just because in space, you can.
“I believe deeply that there need to be more diverse filmmakers making movies”, Damon’s statement read in part. Just stop. Please. He caused so much damage to so many people’. And that’s where space vehicles will be eventually.
“I’m not anxious about my work coming under the eye of experts”.
How faithful is the movie to the book? Damon’s Watney offers statements such as “I’m gonna have to science the shit out of this”, reminding the audience that science, and humor, can power his survival attempt.
“And I brought it up to Ridley when I first met him….” Another shared aspect: It took master directors to pull those films off. So I’m in better shape than I ever was for the other ones.
“He’s stuck out there”.
First of all, what we want to know is, how did her earlobes not rip in half, considering these earrings look like they weigh 30lbs each! “I wonder what he’s thinking right now”. “I think everyone was happy that that worked out the way it did”. There’s a lightness that makes it really entertaining, without sacrificing any of the intensity.
The biggest challenge is gravity.
Mars’ gravity is 38 percent that of Earth’s. It constantly tries to kill Watney while barely registering his existence, and one of the things we do ponder later is what it will really take to go there and survive.
Sometimes fiction really is preferable to fact, huh?
