I’ve Never Seen Star Wars – October wrap-up
Wednesday 31st October 2018 7:59 pm
This month I watched The Martian. I read the book in February last year, so I thought I'd forgotten enough to watch the film.
I think I timed it just right - I'd forgotten a lot of the details, so I was still entertained, but remembered enough that it explained the bits of the film that didn't get explained. The film was good enough that during the "will he get rescued" ending I was on the edge of my seat, even though I remembered how it ended.
I had no idea that it had Sean Bean in it and he was one of the people explaining why a secret meeting had been called "Project Elrond", which I found amusing.
I liked that the film helped me picture everything, because I am terrible at reading description and some of it I just hadn't got my head round at all. But on the whole I preferred the book - it felt like you were more inside Mark's head and it explained more of what was going on. Although if I hadn't read the book, I might not have spent the film going "but th4ey haven't explained why that happened" or "they missed that bit".
I give it a 7 out of 10.
