One of my favorite science fiction films is The Martian starring Matt Damon. I liked this film because even though Matt Damon was in the most desperate life-or-death situation imaginable he never lost his sense of humor even when he blew himself up building his potato farm, which was part of the film’s charm. Even though his methods to farming potatoes were unpleasant, the film still gave me a craving for potatoes. Also, the most interesting thing about the overall film was the fact that he was not only stranded on Mars but he also had to live on Mars. Due to this, the film may provide us with an idea of what everyday life would be on a colonized planet like Mars. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes science fiction, space travel, and charming humor.
