This week, I welcome Central Track film critic Kip Mooney back into the studio, this time to discuss The Martian, a film he reviewed — glowingly — for the site last week.

I really liked the movie, too. It's just cool to see smart people at the top of their game, pushing themselves to solve some complicated problems — and that's what The Martian does so well, and on the hyper-complicated subject of space travel, no less.

Honestly, there's not much bad to say about this movie. If there's any knock to be had here, it's that the structure doesn't exactly match up with its themes. But that's probably not judging the movie for what it is. That's just wishing it was something else. And that's not especially fair because, well, what it is is wonderful.
