I saw The Martian last week and have the unpopular opinion that it was a pretty terrible movie.

Unpopular opinions are still opinions and will always be welcome here. What didn't you like about it?

Sweet. Bear in mind, I did not read the book.

It's hard to crystallize my primary issue with it, although perhaps it is simply Watley's character. He is cocksure and immature, and felt completely inauthentic as a NASA astronaut. I think this dictates the tone of the film which comes across as low, popcorn sci-fi. That being said, I did find the earthbound plot pretty compelling. But compare The Martian to something like Interstellar and it feels like a late night airing on the SyFy channel.

Worst parts of the movie: "I'm gonna have to science the shit out of this." & "In your face, Neil Armstrong." ...which I think were both in the trailers and made me groan every single time.

But that's my two cents.

It was like 30 minutes of awesomeness and I want to buy a hard copy.
