Personally, for me, Alien is top 3 of all time. Blade Runner is top 10. So the fact that Ridley Scott is making a movie about a man stranded on Mars called The Martian? This is cause for great celebration. I can only hope this will be a long awaited return to form for Ridley Scott, because I feel as though we need Ridley Scott making great sci-fi again.
And The Martian looks like it could be great sci-fi. Or perhaps a cool twist on the whole Robinson Crusoe thing. Being stranded on an planet four years from Earth sounds like a bad time, but it's a great concept for a story and I for one can't wait to watch it.
I mean this trailer features the words "I'm going to have to science the shit of this". How can this movie be bad?
