Name that movie (29)


As part of Stainless Steel Droppings 2016 Sci Fi Experience which runs through 1st December to close of January (details here) I’m going to blog a quote (or two) from a different sci fi movie each day.  See if you can guess the film.  Yesterday’s film was Men in Black:


Today’s quotes (and I really DO expect everyone to know this one:

So… I blew myself up.


If the oxygenator breaks down, I’ll suffocate. If the water reclaimer breaks down, I’ll die of thirst. If the hab breaches, I’ll just kind of implode. If none of those things happen, I’ll eventually run out of food and starve to death. So, yeah. I’m fucked.


Mars will come to fear my botany powers.

      I know – seriously, I think everyone will know this one. Such a recent book. 😀

      • Genki Jason

        I’m a film blogger so I have to represent! 😛 It was also a fantastic film!

      • @lynnsbooks

        Yeah, I agree – you definitely have to represent! and it was a great film (and book of course!)

    I haven’t seen the film yet but I read the book and it’s awesome!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It is – I was hoping people would still be able to guess by the book because it’s so recent.

    HA! I’ve neither read the book nor seen the film (I knoooow, I’m so behind!) but I still know that those quotes are from The Martian. 😉

    Good choice today!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – it’s a good one because so many of us have read the book and it’s still fresh.

    I just bought this movie this week and I’ve been watching it nonstop! Like, three times already!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I’ve only seen it once. I thought it was a really good adaptation.

    I still haven’t read or watched this! I do have the book though which I should really get round to soon.

    Great movie, indeed, and a feast for the eyes: I loved how they created “Mars” from the savage beauty of that deserted landscape.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, they did a great job and it was a good adaptation. Probably on balance I preferred the book more but tbh that’s pretty much usually the case and I think the movie is a great visual feast so it’s good to have both experiences in this case.
