IMHO plastic look is from the sensor technology versus thefilm grain technology.
Pros and Cons to each.   Digital sensors are fantastic in capturinglow light. But still blow-outs in the hi key areas.  RAW almosteliminates that. But not fully.
Cons to film, less dynamic range. Neat more light.800 ASA is not enough today without tons of light.
Notice Martian movie is in space, low key scenes etc.
BTW, LED lighting really reduces the sweat factor for actorsand crew.
In the 70s, concert lighting made the musicians boil, always sweating.Now with LED concert lights they don't suffer.  Same with movies.
Watched the classic, The Great Escape. Naturalism. Not madein a computer.

 I saw it in 3D also. The contrasty scenes were more filmlike. I almost left after those opening landscape shots and it took a while for the film to look much better. That's how it appeared to me. Yeah,we're stuck with the digital look. Easy sell to the new genration. They don't really know differenence anyway let alone what film actually is except maybe film students. I watched La Dolce Vita and was surprised at how the  good cinematograpy is. Haven't seen it in years.
