Really? a little bowie and you're sold? that kinda thing doesn't work on me, i remember when fight club used 'Where's my mind' at the end and how that scene gave alot of exposure to the pixies but it didn't impress me at all.

In fact, it kinda puts me off and it gets me thinking about this song

Love that movie and that song. Meg Ryan bathing to Hendrix is the bomb.

The Martian was decent. Clearly it's a film designed to capitalize on the success of Gravity and Interstellar, but it's handled well enough for the most part. The big finale and everything after that was a bit laughable, but whatever. Way too long though. Twenty or thirty minutes could have easily been shaved off of it without any major ill effects.

I gained a new appreciation for that song after it started playing just as your character from Saints Row 4 jumps onto an ICBM as it's launching.

The Martian; not really my thing, at least that's what i thought until i actually saw it, to be honest, before i saw the movie i didn't realise it was a comedy, i thought it was more sci-fi drivel. Turns out its a very well made modern black comedy, good one liners, funny script and the sound track is hilarious.


The best thing about this movie is that most people don't know they've just watched a comedy, no canned laughter etc. If you're part of the dumbed down its a slightly dodgy sci-fi cliffhanger, if you're not its a decent comedy. If the cap fits wear it.

Under those circumstances it wouldn't be so bad.

Would you say is better than Gravity? i haven't seen the Martian but i thought Gravity was pretty good.

Gravity was a technical marvel (I saw it in theatres). I wouldn't want to see it without 3D though.

Gravity is clearly the better film. At 90 minutes, it's a tightly constructed thriller that, although not perfect, manages to be pretty edge-of-seat riveting throughout. I liked the martian, but it would've been a much better film if some babies were killed in editing.
