Movie Rec: The Martian
I am sooooo late on this recommendation, but really, go see The Martian.

If you like space exploration, MacGyverism, solving problems with duct tape and science, struggles for survival against impossible odds, protagonists keeping themselves sane through snark, team dynamics, believable depictions of NASA of the near future, and just awesome things everywhere, go see The Martian. If it's already left your town, rent it or borrow it from your local library system when it becomes available.

Good movie. DAMN good movie.

I'm almost embarrassed to be THAT person, but I gotta say it - if you haven't read the book, you totally should! :D It's really great.

(I had this thing when I read the book where I kept picturing Sebastian Stan as Mark, even knowing who'd be playing which roles in the movie, heh. I had a hard time letting that go when I watched it.)

Oh, no, totally, I left the theatre saying I needed to get the book. :-)

I really enjoyed it! I second schweedie's recommendation: the book is a lot of fun too and gives even more of the MacGyvering and snark.

Absolutely intend to get the book.
