Rented from Netflix "Same kind of Different as Me". Based on a true story. It is the kind of movie I will think about for a couple of days.
5 out of 5.

We watched The Martian last night - 5 stars from me. Great plot, acting was on point, kept me interested til the end, which is almost never happens. Also they didn't take too many liberties with plausibility, which is what ruins most movies for me. NASA says yes, under those circumstances the steps Matt Damon takes to survive are entirely feasible. Their big quibble is the dust storm being all raging like that, but it added to the movie and drove the whole plot, so what the heck.

I was very caught up in everything he did to survive, thought it very believable. It lost all credibility to me during the rescue and the one in a braillion chance of working. Same reason I disliked "Gravity". The physics of jumping between vehicles in space under those conditions ...... nah.

Not me - I wanted that happy Hollywood ending. I'd have been pissed if I watched that whole thing just to have him die at the end.
 
Welcome to Marwen
Taken from the true life experiences of an artist in upstate NY. Steve Carell was great for this role. Many films talk about PTSD and show someone having an episode, but this was probably the first time I actually got dragged into a PTSD experience along with the person having it. Can't help but empathize thru the whole movie for this guy.

It depressed me, but I did like the movie.
