This, paired with the amazing acting made the audience so invested in each and every character. There are definitely multiple acting noms heading the way of this cast. While Matt Damon's performance of course stands out, Donald Glover gave a fantastic performance in one of the smaller roles.
And on top of all this, the cinematography made you believe you were really on Mars. I truly feel like I've seen Mars and like, I'd go. Just as long as nobody left me behind.
I was anticipating this movie for a long time, and I haven't been this excited waiting in line to see something in ages. So there was a lot of room for disappointment, but instead it exceeded my expectations.
Absolutely the must-see blockbuster movie of the year, and one that will probably be used in film classes for years to come. I simply can't express how much it impressed me. Please go and see it so you can discuss with me. If you have seen it - let me know in the comments!
