Ridley Scott’s latest film, The Martian, is being hailed as an exciting new film about the possibilities of man’s future in space. Starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars, The Martian is a film that everyone should see.

How many comedy movies have you watched? Okay, and how many of them would you like to watch again? And again? To me, 90% of modern comedies are possible to watch only once – and sometimes it’s better to not watch them at all. Jokes in such comedies are mostly based on sex or some stupid actions (or both), and I can hardly imagine that someone would laugh at them twice.
