The Martian is the best nerd movie of 2015. I know, I know, there’s a Star Wars movie coming out two and a half months from now. (Holy crap guys there is a new Star Wars coming out two and a half months from now.) God, Mickey Mouse, and J.J. Abrams willing, it will be worthy of the legacy of the original trilogy… or at least it won’t have any floppy earned, intelligence-insulting racial caricatures designed for the sole purpose of selling toys.
But I’ve hopped into my DeLorean, stopped off at October 21st for some sweet hoverboard action, moved ahead to December, watched The Force Awakens (that Howard the Duck cameo was insane), and returned to the good ol’ present day to tell you: The Martian is nerd supreme.
