* AwesomeMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17kEXx1u-AE "Where?"]]
* DesignatedHero: The Martians, for designing a password system that brutally murders you for answering incorrectly.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: It was nominated for a Razzie, holds a solid rating of 24% at RottenTomatoes, and was yet, for some reason, loved by French reviewers. Go figure.
* HilariousInHindsight: [[{{Film/TheMartian}} A lone astrounaut gets stranded on Mars without the means to contact the Earth and must survive for over a years until the next mission arrives and can take him back home.]] Had the film focused on this storyline instead of glossing it over in a narration, it might have been better received.
** Also, ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'' is a DarkerAndEdgier version of this film!
* {{Narm}}: At points the soundtrack sounds like a 1980-1990's TV show soundtrack.
* NightmareFuel: The deaths of the astronauts in the first mission. Ripped apart by a spinning vortex; helmet smashed in by flying debris -- even the lone survivor was nearly suffocated by a rock slide!
