There are many movies about the Manned mission on Mars but no one does it Better than The Martian. It is about an Astronaut who got stranded on Mars after his crew unintentionally left him for dead. It is like Castaway but on an alien planet.
After an exploration, Colonization is the next stage for the Red Planet. The National Geographic Mockumentary, Mars is a two-season scripted show that depicts the construction of an early Mars settlement. From Humble small colonies to the building of space cities. This Sci-fi drama also shows the possible divisions and tension among the early colonizers.
The 1990 film. Total Recall has the best depiction of an early Martian city. The film’s special effects are dated but this is the movie that made me interested in Mars. People live in domed cities with pressure and oxygen inside so people can live. It is an action movie though so things will go wrong.
The final Stage of Colonizing Mars is terraforming. When we say Terraforming it means making the planet Earth-like. The Netflix Original Carole and Tuesday is the best depiction of a Terraformed Mars.
