The Martian

The Martian ★★★★


Rigorously grounded and minimalist, The Martian succeeds because it feels like a wondrous celebration of Ridley Scott's gorgeous eye for expanses and the turmoil that bellows within. More than anything else, The Martian worships science and its ability to overcome problems, and as a result, terrifying horror and distinct victory oozes from Scott's tight direction. This is a 2 hour and 20 minute adventure, and it feels longer than that, but in a good way of course. It's a drawn-out spectacle that surprisingly flows as a cohesive story of intimacy and vast discovery. I found it inspiring.
