The Martian

They say once you grow crops somewhere, you have officially colonized it. So, technically, I colonised Mars. In your face, Neil Armstrong. 
--Mark Watney, The Martian 2015 
Just enjoying one of the best movies in 2015 The Martian. A 2015 American science fiction movie which tells about Mark Watney (amazingly starred by Matt Damon), an astronaut who is mistakenly presumed dead and left behind on the planet Mars.

This 2,5 hours movie captures the engaging yet touching scenes of how Watney spends his solitary days on Mars. Instead of feeling frustrated, he shows his super positive aura in facing all the obstacles on Mars. He creates everything by himself. He keeps trying to find a way on how to survive. What a man!!!

This movie teaches us how to be optimistic in even the worst condition. Although the movie duration is quite long but it's not a problem at all since we are curious to know what will happen to Watney and we're going to be busy enjoying smart yet funny dialogue all along the movie.

One thing that makes me so excited about the movie was because out of the blue my girls asked me to take them and watch the movie together. What? Are you for real, girls? It's a 2,5 hours movie, are you sure you can deal with it? I don't want to leave the cinema in the middle of the show. Blah…blah…Najla said religiously, "calm down Ma, we promise we won't make your life difficult." Hahaha…such a sweet girl.

Moreover Najla and Zea said they feel bored of watching cartoon movies now, remember…. they're not kids anymore. Hear…hear…no more cartoon movies unless if it's really special (such as The Little Prince which will be played in the cinemas very soon). Okay then, I guess it's worth to try. Let's go girls!!!

And I was relieved and proud due to the girls successfully watched the movie until the end without any complaint nor 'I-want-to-go-home-now'-scream. In fact Najla said that she begins to realise that Science is really important and perhaps it's time to pay more attention to that subject. Well…good point, girl.
