So I like My Favorite Martian very much. And in today's world, it's nice to hear an story about people coming together to save one of their own. The characters were interpreted with full respect to the intention of the author, Andy Weir, and nothing was overdone. Call it manipulating the audience. The Martian adopts the name 'Uncle Martin' and becomes friends with Tim, whilst he fixes his ship. There are some good moments in ''My Favorite Martian,'' including the ice cream shop segment.
With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. The film is hilarious in some parts, in fact I'd argue that it's funnier than most comedies that have come out this year. The landscape of Mars looks absolutely breathtaking, and the scenes aboard the Hermes and back on Earth are just as sharp in detail and scope. But even the real Uncle Martin could not save this turkey. The pacing and editing of this movie was some of the best I've seen, in fact, some of the one-liners from the book are done so quickly it pushed the story forward relentlessly. Then, a Martian from Mars arrives in his home. For those who loved the old television show of the same name, with Bill Bixby and Ray Walston, this film is not worthy to tie the proverbial boots.
A martian that took different shapes. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. His ranting, groaning, grimacing and histrionics provide us with no reason to care for his character except as some 1 dimensional cartoon character. I was not the least bit disappointed. Pleasant enough to pass some spare time if you have not got anything better to view. Having read the book, and being very impressed, I was looking forward to the movie interpretation. Like the talking suit, that was a new thing and not bad at all.
First it was the superb Rocketman and now this one. The supporting cast, everyone involved, all do great work as well. Jeff Daniels basically playing the same role he played in the live 101 Dalmatians remake which wasn't too juicy to begin with. It's just good clean fun for the whole family. My Favorite Martian get like 8. Be assured, kids and adults will find this movie a colossal bore, so opt for A Night at the Museum or Around the World in 80 Days instead. And if you weren't annoyed by Tom Hanks and his boys killing almost an entire German Division before giving up in 'Save Private Ryan' you won't be annoyed too.
With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. They were trying to appeal to the adults that watched the series back in the 60's but were also trying to appeal to kids with the blatant toilet humor, but remember the old proverb - if you try to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one. They are able to get any actors and actresses they want, the best of their time. The film was basically just following them around in their normal lives. I was very young when this came out, and at the time i loved it. Intelligent Martian lands on Earth and meets the not too bright humans, in his view. In contrast, in the original, characters were developed and the viewers developed a feeling for Tim and Uncle Martin.
I thought he did well. When a movie is this colourful and enjoyable and funny, who cares about originality?!!!! The Martian is a new Ridley Scott classic, featuring his best work in years, the best performance I've ever seen from Matt Damon, an outstanding supporting cast, a surprisingly funny screenplay from Daredevil creator Drew Goddard, and a great narrative that ties the film together beautifully. . The characters really didn't have much character in them. It was great to see how the screenplay added extra material that was not in the book, and it enhanced the story to make it even better. One thing that struck me is that everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, and I think that could be a testament to the originality and uniqueness of the book. He plays Watney with so much optimism that it actually makes the depressing aspect of the film not as depressing for me.
I laughed out loud at it myself and i'm 17! They all knew they had some great material to work with and ran with it. Christopher Lloyd, whom I normally enjoy, was so miserably miscast in this role. The side effects of ice cream are like alcohol to our bodies; Uncle Martin runs around and wrecks the ice cream shop, completely intoxicated. Certainly no self-respecting, card-carrying child I know! The way he chose to make this film made it almost seem like an exceptionally made biopic. Tim Gary Daniels wants desperately to break into serious television reporting. Christopher Lloyd is really funny as 'Uncle Martin' and Jeff Daniels is on good form throughout too! But, I liked this movie. Synopsis During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew.
It was a bit less than I expected, but it was still entertaining. I read some of the reviews and decided to review this title myself. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. I'm not a big fan of Daryl Hannah or Elizabeth Hurley, but they did well, too. Donald Petrie Life couldn't get much worse for News Producer Tim O'Hara.
But somehow Disney manages to screw things up in spite of their abundant resources. We also have the romantic aspects of the movie with Daryl Hannah and Liz Hurley which makes the movie even more fun! I believe anyone who reads the book is captivated and involved with the story from beginning to end, and it's possible this comes across in all phases of the production; the acting, the sets, sound, everything. And it does have a couple of good laughs. Now admittedly, there are some good jokes and one-liners lying around in this movie, but they're few and far between, and they only get a chuckle out of me personally. Wallace Shawn is one of the most underrated yet distinguished co-stars out there, and he demands just as much credit as the other actors on board, since he does very well with his character, who chases Tim and ''Uncle Martin'' because he wants to prove there is intelligent life on other planets.
