    Interstellar Vs. The Martian, Which movie do you like the most?

    Both movies are great in their own merits. Which one is your favorite? My vote goes to Interstellar .

    As Interstellar was one of the most boring and poorly acted movies ever made I vote for the Martian. I haven't walked out on a movie in many years, until interstellar: even the soundtrack was immensely boring and shabbily derivative. Interstellar actually stretched time with crippling boredom. An hour felt like a day before I walked out.
    The Martian was based on "down to earth" concepts but was a little too packed with close calls. I was just glad to see a movie that wasn't about "saving the entire universe" (again and again!) or saving the entire earth (again and again ad nauseum)

    My vote would be for "The Martian".
    It's easier to imagine being left for dead and attempting to survive than it is to imagine traveling through wormholes to prevent the destruction of earth.
    Anyone who has ever been stranded anywhere can identify in some way with Matt Damon's predicament.
    You have to depend on yourself until help arrives.
    Time and time again in the news we hear about stories of people who got lost while hiking and survived by eating ants and eating snow or whatever. A few years ago a guy got his arm caught between some rocks while climbing a mountain. When he realized he couldn't get his arm out and the unlikelihood someone would rescue him he chose cut off his arm with a pocketknife. He survived.
    The first law of nature is self-preservation.
    It's fascinating to imagine what choices (we) would make.

      I have not seen either. I imagine the martian is the better rafter reading the votes and comment. I am not voting. Not fair to do that.

    To be honest, the concepts in "Interstellar" were too frightening for me to face  The other dimensions made me terribly scared about after-life existence. Also, the fact of coming back to a daughter who was now as old as his mother was, made me incredibly sad.  While I recognize that this is the more scientific and possibly more accurate projection of life in the future, I could "take" and relate to the "The Martian" much better.  It was less frightening for me.  Existing on parallel universes just makes me incredibly afraid rather than providing comfort and excitement as it does to my husband.

    Wow, I never would of thought that I was the only one that really liked and enjoyed Interstella, far more than the Martian.

    I found that Interstella had some things which were unfaniliar to me and gave me the sense of watching a scene for the first time and not a hundred like every other movie. I don't know maybe someone spiked my coke. Especially the sense of a great loss, of time but in a single mistake and short period of local time. That was a bit gut wrenching but in a way that sucked me in like I was a kid again in a movie theater totally absorbed.

    The robots were perfect. I can't explain why but they were the best robots I've ever seen in a movie, including their simple alloy locker type physiques. They way they locomote and communicate with humans and their artificial personalities.

    The scene where Mathew M emediatelly follows up behind Matt D in attempting to dock the ship after Matt half blows up the station is abit cheesy but good. The way Matt blows up mid sentence, the camera angle on the hatch door, the colors and lighting, and also when he is attempting a manual dock, the cinematography and the way the ship moves and how sinister it looks.

    Matts character and his words as he attempts to kill Mathews character.

    The music, that everyone seems to hate or find strange. I think I might not have even liked this movie without the constant background music.

    Every character and relationship is incredibly rich. Evety scene is rich, with dialogue, character roles, music, cinematography, ideas (some original and some borrowed), length, content, chamge of scenes, times, events and ofcourse the fate of the world at stake, the science and the science fiction, the actors and the acting.

    Not the best film I ever saw but top ten atleast.

    I would vote the interstellar. It is just really involving stuff like flying into the black hole. That's why.

    The Martian. It was just more straightforward, and the characters were easier to root for.
