I watched Passengers last night. Here’s my quick review.
Director: Morten Tyldum
Why I watched it:
Slim pickings as far as new iTunes movies go lately, and I like science fiction. And Jennifer Lawrence.
There are references to The Shining throughout. Similar vibe at the beginning.
Watchable. Not great. Very little science. Lots of fiction.
Something I liked about it:
Arthur, the bartender. Loss of gravity in the swimming pool.
Something I didn’t like about it:
Lots of absurdly soft science, especially near the end.
He was unimpressed. He’s only a dog, but even he knew some of that stuff would never, ever happen.
