Finally got a chance to watch The Martian, it was good
I could never understand how these martian dust-stormes can create such havoc. Mars has ~1% of Earth's atm pressure. How can a storm build such force and move large objects? The only logical explenation is the lower gravity but still I think it is over -dramatisation and holywood exageration.
Also no movie regarding mars takes into account the lower gravity and this one is no exception. All scenes inside the hab (explosions, falling objects, walking, moving, etc..) look like they occur under 1g. I understand that this is very difficult to show in the movie - the only solution would be to film in a plane following a specific curved trajectory which would increase cost a great deal.
Lack of sientific accuracy regarding the effect of gravity was the main reason I didin't like interstellar either: Why did they need a huge rocket to lift-off from earth when they can launch from Millers and Maans planets and reach endurance in orbit inside the rangers/landers??
The only movie that depicted gravity correctly was, well, Gravity.
