I’ve always hated when people say that the book is better than the movie. It doesn’t seem to matter how good the movie actually is, people always find some reason to complain. Maybe they left something out, or perhaps a scene was changed or god only know what else. Never mind the fact that they managed to work anywhere from thirty to twelve hundred pages into a roughly two hour movie. Please, feel free to ignore that crucial little detail. Having said all of that, I can’t think of any movie that is a better adaptation of a book than The Martian.
