It is with The Martian that Scott turns his critics on their heads and shakes out their lunch money, once again asserting his dominance in the field of cinema. He's still capable of making fantastic movies. The Martian has a very simple premise that is executed tremendously. During a manned mission to Mars, a storm hits and forces the crew to evacuate in an expedited fashion. One member, Mark Watney (Matt Damon, who can't catch a break in space), is hit by debris and is presumed dead. But, the next day, he wakes up to learn that he is very much alive. But he has no means of escape, no way to communicate with anyone, and will run out of food far sooner than it would take for a new crew to reach him. He is stranded as far from home as literally anyone in the history of the human race has been.
