The Martian

Postby MisterP » Tue Oct 06, 2015 4:14 pm

Just a spectacular movie. I didn't read the book, but the movie is nothing short of FANTASTIC!

Matt Damon is superb, probably the best role of his career.

Ridley Scott's (Alien, Blade Runner) best movie in a LOOOONG time.

So much excitement, comedy (yes, comedy), and a great supporting cast.

And it's SMART without being too hard to follow. What a Grade-A crowd-pleasing blockbuster.

This is what Hollywood still does right. Must see...on the big screen. In 3D is highly recommended...

I saw it on the muller monster screen at Lakeville. 80 by 73 feet wide 3 story screen biggest in Minnesota at Muller Family Theatres. The Martian was a good movie. See it on large format on the imax screen in digital 3D.

I have to find some time this weekend to go see it. What is interesting is our IMAX is showing The Walk. Wonder if they regret that move.

We-re planning to see it next week.
It all looks good to us about it, especially Damon.

It was a good movie, but I wouldn't recommend watching it in 3-D. I literally took off my 3-D glasses and watched the movie without them. The screen was so much clearer without them and maybe 7% of the movie was in 3-D
Wood-22
Steel- 84
Total- 106

Everything on Mars was in 3-D. That is more than 7%. Granted, none of the Earth-bound stuff really needs to be in 3-D, but the Mars exteriors are fantastic.

But at the same time, I also agree with you that you don't need to see it in 3-D to enjoy it. It's good any which way.

Also, to the guy who was wondering about IMAX, I'm pretty sure it's not in IMAX anywhere. Nowhere here in STL either..

We saw it. It was great.

Matt Damon should get an Oscar nom for this one.

We saw it Friday...great movie.

While Damon is not my type of guy, my BF certainly didn't gasp at him without a shirt on! ;)
