Passengers (Sci-Fi 2016)

You know, even though many reviews for this movie were less than stellar, I got to say that it really wasn't that bad. I actually liked it and I felt that it was fairly realistic with regards to the characters' emotions and actions in relation to the story.

I'm a sucker for Sci-Fi colonization films though, since there are so few of them as a genre, but and I'm glad it only had a handful of characters in it since you get more time to delve into the minds of primaries. The story wasn't deep though, it was kinda vanilla in what what did happen so nothing out of left field there. The special effects were good, but we've seen it all before for the past 15 years or so. The music and atmosphere were as expected, but yeah overall it was a fun film to watch.

I would totally pay money to have a room in my house that looked like one of the spaceship living quarters; the small, grey one not the fancy loft one...it looks so damn efficient and sterile. Anyway, I thought the movie was alright and it's worth a watch for any Sci-Fi fan.
Rating - B
