    One way to learn and remember Chinese Symbols and their meanings is to see them in context. And to make learning a bit more interesting I thought it would be kind of cool to see Chinese symbols in the context of popular movie plot descriptions.

    The original Chinese text is taken from the Chinese Wikipedia site for the movie "The Martian".
