Just finished watching The Martian movie with Matt Damon whilst Moonbase Junior is asleep!
I liked it a lot.
One of the reasons I liked it is that no-one actually dies. More to the point no-one has to sacrifice themselves in order for the rest to live although they did try to!
I find this an unnecessary trope in many space movies such as Gravity or Mission to Mars or Capricorn One. I know space is brutal but why is sacrifice such a common sub-plot? Maybe I'm just soft!
Having said that I do like all those films too, especially Capricorn One! Its an excellent story.
Which space films do you like readers? Marooned maybe, Outland perhaps or any others? Does everyone live in them!?
