#075 – The Martian and Earthly Optimism

On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:

tm001We have been eagerly awaiting the Fall movie season so we can begin sitting back and enjoying what has become the best season for film each year. The Martian plants that flag in a way that we hope signals the beginning of the best. The film itself is a lot of fun while still maintaining a solid level of suspense. This becomes our yearly “space film” but finds a way to carve out a more hopeful and less introspective tone than its predecessors while sporting an incredible ensemble cast. Is that ok? Does it work? We have a great time determining just that!
