Review of the Movie The Martian

Review of the Movie The Martian

Ridley Scott’s latest film, The Martian, is being hailed as an exciting new film about the possibilities of man’s future in space. Starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars, The Martian is a film that everyone should see. It serves to remind people, Americans in particular, that we used to look up at the stars and dream of exploration. When America landed on the moon in 1969, it was a moment that united humanity.

Enjoy The Grand Budapest Hotel Summary

The Grand Budapest Hotel Summary

How many comedy movies have you watched? Okay, and how many of them would you like to watch again? And again? To me, 90% of modern comedies are possible to watch only once – and sometimes it’s better to not watch them at all. Jokes in such comedies are mostly based on sex or some stupid actions (or both), and I can hardly imagine that someone would laugh at them twice.

However, there are comedy movies that make you want to return to them; such movies are usually based on what some might call, “the absurdity of life,” but I would rather say, “life in its fullness and diversity.” And, in my opinion, one of the directors who has mastered this approach is Wes Anderson, with his recent The Grand Budapest Hotel.
