Confessions! Hashtag Humpdays! Link-ups! Oh my! All the craziness is enough to confuse a girl (okay, that girl is me), but let's talk about The Martian (the movie)................ #ireadthebook #ineededtoseethemovie
For those of you who don't read (gasp!) or have lived under a rock, The Martian by Andy Weir was a book sensation that lots and lots and LOTS of people read and loved. And, a movie was released this year. #quickwrapup #googleformoreinfo
I finally took myself on a movie date to see The Martian. My guy and I kept talking about going, kept meaning to go, but it didn't happen. I had Tuesday off, went to the cinema, splurged for a reclining seat, grabbed some popcorn, and took a picture. #duh #solomoviedate #itdidnthappenunlesstheresproofoninstagram
People...why was I not warned about the gross-out, close-up, self-surgery scene at the start?? I looked away. I couldn't handle it. #igetqueasy
I confess: Since I wasn't watching, it sounded like Matt Damon could've been shooting a porn. #lotsofgrunting #dontbeanidiotandgooglemattdamonporn #yepimanidiot #myeyesarescarred #whatwasithinking
I confess: I still don't understand any of the science, math, or technology. But, it's about space...it's gotta be there, right? #idontdoscience #idontdomath
I loved the casting before I even saw the movie. Matt Damon was the perfect Mark Watney. Everyone was excellent casting choices for their role (except Jeff Daniels kind of bored me, but come to think of it, Jeff Daniels always kind of bores me). #markwatneyisabadass #mattdamonisasmartass #perfectfit
I confess: I love that the female characters are badass, yet we aren't really focusing on their gender. They are there, performing their jobs, being intelligent, alongside their male counterparts. #finally #badasseryknowsnogender
I confess: I didn't think Kristen Wiig's character got to be as snarky as she was in the book. Kristen Wiig can pull off snark. #imissedthesnark #ilovethesnark
I confess: I smiled every time a scene started telling you in typed letters the location was "Johnson Space Center Houston Texas". #yesivebeen #morethanonce #texasproud #youcantakethegirlouttatexas
Have you seen or read The Martian? What did you think?
