OK, I Enjoyed The Martian. So There’s That…

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.
