Jason watches THE MARTIAN in 3D

Now that's some smart sci-fi. I can't take credit for this, but a friend of mine pointed out that in many good sci-fi movies there's the moment where smart people have to figure out how to improvise some way to survive. That's the whole movie of THE MARTIAN. Only complaint--and this is really a nitpick--is when Matt Damon says he'll have to "science the shit out of this" he's technically engineering the shit out of this. Now, if he had a control Matt Damon to see what happened if he didn't do any of the stuff he did, that would be science.

Oh yeah, and as for the 3D, it mostly follows my rule of action into the screen = good, action out of the screen = bad. Only time I noticed it breaking the rule was during the storm in the beginning. Had to have dust and rocks flying at your face.
