Not a long post, cuz I’m working on stuff right now, but I figured I’d share that me and the lovely Deb went out and saw The Martian last night…and enjoyed it. Well-made, straightforward SCIENCE fiction.
I guess if I’d have one criticism–and of course I have, Jesus, I’m a curmudgeon–it was that there wasn’t a great deal of tension in the story because, well you kind of knew going in that he wasn’t going to die. I mean, why make a movie called The Martian, if the lead character, the Martian, dies? So, there’s that…
Anyway, it was good…go see it.
And, I swear, if I have to hear anymore about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I might scream. Never a huge Star Wars fan, and I am eager to see the movie…but, jeezly crow, no one’s that eager.
Well, except my eldest son, and I think he’s just eager to see it to hate it. Oh well, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
