Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down – Film reviews made simple.
The idea behind Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down is to keep film reviews short, simple and most importantly SPOILER FREE! Keep it simple. Would you recommend this film or not?
The Martian is intelligent, humorous and thrilling. Matt Damon is fantastic as stranded astronaut Mark Watney, it’s his charismatic presence that keeps the film moving forward. Because of this the films mood has an overall positive and light tone instead of following Hollywood’s recent obsession with dark, gritty, depressing spectacles.
I haven’t read the book, but I probably will now. Loved this film!
Verdict – Thumbs Up!
