Director Ridley Scott told Matt Damon, who was hedging about doing The Martian so soon after Interstellar, "This is going to be fucking fun." Guess what? It is. In Scott's take on Andy Weir's bestseller, Damon is an astronaut stranded on Mars when his crew heads back to Earth, thinking he's died during a Red-Planet dust storm. Don’t fret about existential dread – it's a blast.

I am guessing Scott is not a fan of Interstellar.

Based on what? He's a scifi nutter, Interstellar is one of the peaks.

I was wrapped up THE MARTIAN from 1st launch. Ridley, your PROMETHEUS sins are forgiven. #tiff15

The Martian is Ridley Scott's next great sci-fi hit. I was absolutely in love, even before Bowie's Starman lit up the soundtrack. #tiff40

Leave your cynicism at the door. Feel like a kid at the movies again. Go see THE MARTIAN. Four stars. #TIFF15

Loved THE MARTIAN. Going to be a big hit for Fox and Ridley Scott. Great script and performances. Worth seeing in 3D.
Finally, Ridley!
