2015 Best Soundtrack Winner

The Martian


The tactic of filling your science fiction movie with cheesey music from the 70s is not an entirely original tactic, in fact Guardians of the Galaxy did something similar last year, but it feels decidedly different here than it did there.  Part of that might be because there’s a real story justification for why people are listening to this kitch in space (at least one that’s more believable than having a mother who obsessively makes mix tapes) and the main character also seems well aware of how absurd that condition is.
