I'm picking recent watches that feature scientists.

The Lazarus Effect (2015) 
A group of medical researchers carry out experiments to bring the dead back to life which go terribly wrong. This was just an ok watch. It is sort of like a mash up of Pet Sematary and Flatliners only less memorable.

The Martian (2015)
 An astronaut is stranded on Mars after his team leaves thinking he was dead. The astronaut here is also a botanist and he uses his expertise to survive his long stay before help could ever reach him. I really enjoyed this one, it's a feel good drama with the whole "guy survives against all odds" thing going for it and it is quite funny as well. My only complain is that it is too long.

Annihilation (2018)
A biologist joins a team sent on a secret expedition to a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't seem to apply and where those who have ventured into it before have not returned. I like this one too. Super creepy and that ending.

  2. I saw two out of your three picks. We share one with The Martian which was brilliant. Annihilation was also really could and the film was definitely better than the book.

  3. I've seen two of the three and I liked one, but loved the other. So The Martian is fav, Annihilation is okay, and I haven't seen Lazarus yet...
