I'm pretty sure I haven't seen a movie in the theater since Pitch Perfect 2 so I was in the mood for one. I didn't think I would like The Martian. I absolutely hated Gravity and I was scared it would be like that. It wasn't. There was so much dialogue and suspense. The first hour of this movie = nerd heaven. That was actually my favorite part. Matt Damon has been in the news for saying a lot of dumb stuff lately, but I always I always really like his movies and I loved this one. It also had Kristen Wiig and Kata Mara in it which was a surprise for me since I had never seen a preview. If that is the last movie I see in the theater this year, that's fine with me.
