I absolutely loved the book. It’s one of those books that you can’t put down. The situation was bleak but there was also something funny about it. Despite the complexity and absurdity of the situation, I found that I could always relate to how Mark Watney was feeling. The movie in a sense was the same. There were a few minor tweaks that bugged the hell out of me but for the most part, the movie did a great job of interpreting the book. The story was fairly close but there were some parts I wish the movie included. For example, the book had some appropriately placed profanity and I just could not understand why that was removed in the film. Overall, it’s a very good movie, the features that come with it are full value. The casting I thought was ok, Matt Damon was pretty convincing as Watney but his supporting cast was kind of weak. They felt pretty far away from the story and were generally pretty irrelevant for the most part. I couldn’t bring myself to hate them, but I couldn’t bring myself to like them either. If you have read the book, the movie delivers but there was always a sense that an important element of the book was omitted to make it more dramatic on film. If you have not read the book, then this movie would be excellent. Still, very much recommended. If you have not read the book, I would highly recommend it.

I love movies about space, so no surprise that I loved this one. Since I am not a NASA engineer, I don't know what is feasible as far as what happens in this movie, and I don't care. I simply enjoyed it. I watched it on my 3D Panasonic Plasma tv. The 3D aspect was outstanding, which is more than I can say for other so called 3D movies. Correct me if I am wrong , but some 3D movies are shot in HD and then physically changed to 3D. This movie seems to me to actually have been shot with a 3D camera, and that makes a big difference in the quality of the 3D depth look to the film. For example, Men In Black 3D was shot NOT using a 3D camera and it looks it. On the other hand Pirates Of The Caribbean -On Stranger Tides was shot using a 3D camera and it looks it. I think when a movie says 3D it should be noted whether or not the 3D was shot using a 3D camera or not. To me it makes a big difference. A 3D camera gives a greater sense of depth and therefore a greater 3D experience.

Here's a case where the bonus content is as good as the movie itself. The featurettes are a prequel and afterwards to the story. Maybe the movie was a lot longer and these were the cut parts. I don't think so though. These are really polished and added to the enjoyment. The gag real and how-they-made-it are really informative a fun.

VIDEO (3D):

“The Martian 3D” arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 MVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. Ridley Scott uses a lot of the expansive backgrounds filling each shot with plenty of foreground, middle-ground, and far distance objects to give an incredible three-dimensional sense of depth. During the initial sandstorm, one notices little bits of grit float up at the screen. The placement of foreground and background objects also gives a greater sense of depth and dimension. This is an enjoyable 3D experience. (4/5)

VIDEO (2D):

“The Martian 2D” arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC @ 27.50 Mbps 1080p 2.40:1 encode. “The Martian” was shot digitally with both Red Epic Dragon and Red Scarlet Dragon digital equipment. The “video diary” and other video camera shots seen in the movie made use of GoPro Hero4 equipment. It benefits from some eye catching panoramas of the Martian landscape, colour graded to buttery orange-yellow colour. There are tremendous details on close-ups. Skin tone was natural. Blacks are deep. This is a great transfer. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

“The Martian” arrives on blu-ray with a dynamic DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio track, as demonstrated by the initial sandstorm plus the extended rescue mission at the end. The surround speakers are fully utilized. Bass is deep. The disco collection included “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summer, coming on when the radioactive materials heat up, and “I Will Survive” at the end credits, which is not only relevant, but appropriate because it contains the phrase "And so you're back from outer space". Overall, a great soundtrack. It was nominated for 2 Oscars in “Best Sound Editing” and “Best Sound Mixing.

Ok so The Martian is probably my most favorite film of the year, stellar quality and acting. No complaints here. Enjoying the book on Audible as well. But we all know about the film, lets talk about the extras: There's like none. To clarify, I'm not here to review the film rather than informing you on the product/bluray/package as a whole.

The featurettes are pitiful. More than half of the "featurettes" were publicly available to view / hype the film before it's theatrical release. The remaining few were really well done. Covers the origins of the book to film medium, director's vision, casting, NASA's involvement, etc. The gag reel is probably the highlight of the batch, really funny stuff. Lastly, they made an exposé "special" examining the NASA staff, why Sean Bean's character was fired, and what the characters thought of the situation. There is approximately 45 minutes of exclusive extras and 17 minutes of extras you've already seen; that's including the trailers lol. Unfortunately, there was no audio commentary available for the feature film.

Digital download code is available on UltraViolet UV and iTunes, code expires in 1/12/19.
