The Martian 250 Movies Better than Shawshank

martian01I’ve been considering my last post for 2015; I’ve been asking myself if there are any movies from 2015 that are good enough for this honor, and I came up with Ridley Scott’s: The Martian. Yes, it is the perfect choice with which to end the year and set off into the new one. Beyond the fact of the top notch acting, plot, and cinematography, this is a hopeful film, one that pushes back against the increasingly hostile world of movies and TV, and best of all, it’s humorous and reminds us of the beauty of life. Thank you Ridley for this film and thanks to Andy Weir for writing the book.
