Passengers

{4.5/5} “You can’t get so hung up on where you’d rather be that you forget to make the most of where you are.”

Passengers, released in 2016

The starship Avalon is heading for Homestead II. Everyone on board is in hibernation, but then something goes wrong and Jim wakes up — 90 years early. With no way to wake up the crew and a message to Earth years away, Jim doesn’t have a lot of options. He could wake up one of the passengers — but they would be very upset at him if they found out.

This is a terrific movie that I liked a lot. The way that things broke down on the ship didn’t really make sense, but other than that I enjoyed the whole thing.

There are some stunning sequences that would have been great to see on the big screen.

How far would you go to add someone to your life if you were all alone for a year?

Stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game). The music by Thomas Newman is delightful — a bit reminiscent of WALL-E.
