My two favorite movies of this subgenre, Cast Away and The Martian, I realize are drastically different. Cast Away is about the psychological and physical obstacles that Chuck has to face alone, whereas The Martian is more puzzles he has to face with lots of help to bring himself back alive. In this movie, Tom Hanks gives an incredible performance, and his acting along with the cinematography allows the viewer to truly be brought along with him through this terrifying experience.
This movie is so great. This movie made me emotionally attached to a volleyball. A volleyball.
