The Martian Hits the Theaters

On October 4, I watched the new motion picture, The Martian, starring Matt Damon. If you enjoyed Interstellar, starring Matthew McConaughey,  you will love this, too. The movie begins with a huge storm over Mars, and the other five astronauts leave because Watney (Damon) has just been hit by flying debris and is assumed dead. After a few days, NASA notices that certain items have been moved, and they discover he survived the storm and the puncture to his stomach. He has to grow food on a planet that will no longer produce and wait four years for anyone to get back to him. Throughout the movie, you’ll laugh, lose hope and see some very familiar faces. To find out if he makes it home, make sure to go see it in theaters. It is definitely worth it.
