I went to see The Martian today. I enjoyed the movie, but unsurprisingly, I think the book (written by Andy Weir) was better.

Things the movie did better than the book: show the emotional toll the situation takes on Mark Watney. Show the emotional side of the story in general, really. Do I still need to spoiler cut this? Eh, just in case... )

All that aside, as I said at the beginning, I did enjoy the movie. It was significantly less dumb than a lot of things I've seen in my life, hilarious climax notwithstanding. I just think it could easily have been better.
