Ridley Scott redeems himself. After his disastrous Prometheus, I wasn't sure I ever wanted to see another film from him, but [link=http://templetongate.net/themartian-movie.htm]The Martian[/link] is top-notch, as realistic a space-based movie as we could have expected. Highly recommended.

The Martian won a Golden Globe last night. Not surprising, except for the category. How and why was it in the "Musical or Comedy" category? Yeah, there were a few laughs along the way, but seriously? I would much rather it have lost to The Revenant instead of winning in a category it didn't belong. In fact, only two of the films were comedies, and none were musicals.
