Last night, our film group discussed Phoenix. Eleven of twelve gave it a thumbs up.
Tonight, we saw The Martian. Nothing deep, but solid entertainment. 3D is a good choice for this one.
Twenty-five years ago, The Martian would have been a Ron Howard film with Tom Hanks starring as the astronaut stranded on Mars. One quibble: after about 800 days in space, Jessica Chastain was sporting lipstick and mascara, and Kate Mara had a neat haircut with pretty blonde highlights. I don't think so.
