Notes from the Manager
True facts! The premise being impossible isn’t the worst of The Martian’s problems, though. It doesn’t bother me at all. What does drag down The Martian just a bit is that despite Drew Goddard being the sole credited screenwriter, the movie feels kind of spoon-fed to me at every turn. As a hard (as in realistic) science fiction nerd and gets tired of how science gets portrayed in too many movies, there’s still a lot for me to love about The Martian, but constant exposition pulls me out of a movie.
If Ridley Scott ever has an itch to make an hour longer, more pensive cut of the film, though, I’m so there.
