Movie Diary 9/21/2015

The Martian (Ridley Scott, 2015). Is it heresy to suggest that Prometheus and The Counselor – whatever their problems – were more intriguing projects for Scott than this well-executed exercise in hokum? It’s already been raved over at the Toronto Film Festival, which makes you wonder about what else got screened up there. In any case, if you want inspirational reaction shots, baby, you’ve got ’em. Nice cast, cool Martian dust devils, pro job by Matt Damon. (full review 10/2)
