“The Martian” Is Absolutely Stunning Cinema

HOLLYWOOD—“Gravity” was one of those films that blew my mind in 2013 when it comes to cinematic evolution. In 2015, another film challenges the realms of outer space with the Ridley Scott sci-fi drama “The Martian.” No, Scott is not venturing into that dark realm which ignited his career in 1979 with the thriller “Alien.” He is however going...
