Watched Saving Mr Banks last night, thoroughly enjoyed it, having never seen it before. Hats off to Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and the excellent Emma Thompson.
I don't want to be the "I prefer the book" person but I thoroughly recommend reading The Martian. Matt Damon's character is absolutely brilliant, almost like someone out of an Irvine Welsh novel.The Martian
Matt Damon gets stranded on Mars when his crew assume he's dead and evacuate in a storm and has to survive in his wee base with hardly any rations etc while Chiwetel Eljiofor, Sean Bean and others on earth work out how to rescue or resupply him. Watchable enough but too long, strangely pitched and the usual issue with castaway movies of the main character not having anyone to bounce off. Large parts of the film felt like the bit in Apollo 13 where the guys on the ground are trying to work out how to fit the square peg in the round hole with the materials in the craft.
