Read the book first. Damon was a perfect cast.

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

I love me some Jessica Chastain.

Also: No love for Donald Glover?



It is what it is.

The meeting scene where they're talking about the meeting in Lord of the Rings with Sean Bean there was one of the funniest things I've ever seen....

Love the book, love the movie. It's one of the few movies that despite having to edit-out parts of the book, still knocked it out of the park.

I gotta watch that movie again, then read the book again...

I still want know how he could survive on Mars (atmospheric pressure less than 1% of earth's) in a track suit (with knee pads) and with a duct-tape-and-plastic-drop-cloth air-lock on his crib.

But equally plausible.

I read the book and saw the movie afterwards in theatres. Talking about the cast, it was disappointing to see a female Asian role be given to a white woman. Any role in a Western movie where an Asian character is not exhibiting martial arts training or shooting a gun is important to keep Asian during casting.

No need to rehash the weak justifications like: Well,,, the name Mindy Park could mean anything. Maybe she was 1/8 Asian with white features and blonde hair. Chill, she's just a secondary character. It's a movie not a documentary.

Haven't thought about it in years, but yeah, it still irks me whenever the movie is mentioned.

But he was my favorite martian, followed closely by Marvin

How about the author himself saying "I didn't specify ANYONES ethnicity"?
