Last year we read Andy Weir's novel, The Martian, and watched the movie starring Matt Damon. So, we're well covered in writing about both movie and book.
I am happy to say that the movie still holds up, and, with many more months separated between book and movie, the details that were different didn't bother me as much. If anything, I'm still confused with the casting of Mackenzie Davis as someone I think we all believed to be Korean-American, and with the benefit of the extras on the BluRay, it's very clear that they cut a lot around Kristen Wiig, who seemed weirdly cast in the movie (she just didn't have much to do).
I'm a little frustrated in my personal life that there is still no model of the Hermes, the amazing spacecraft transporting the crew between Earth and Mars, for me to buy online. What up with that, licensing people?
|This would look great on my bookshelf.|
So, yeah, give me my damn Hermes model.
