I'm in freakin Aruba and my wife and child want to go sit in a movie theater. WTF.

They really wanted me to go. The only thing I was remotely interested in, is Arrival. I told them, don't be surprised if it's in Dutch or Hispanic. It was normal... but with subtitles. Bhwaaaaaa haaaaaaa haaaaaa

I cared for the movie very little. Ultimately the movie had a hard time explaining the purpose of the visit from the aliens.

It was well done and it is a thinking mans sci-if, but it's convulated with some very high brow concepts about time. Not just language. A slooooooow ass movie. I seriously doubt I revisit this one. I may, just to try again understand the the time thing.

Unless there's a monsoon, we won't be doing that again.

Passengers 4 stars

https://youtu.be/7BWWWQzTpNU

It's cold outside, so sitting in the theater is OK.

I loved Passengers. The core of the movie is love and loneliness. Sci-if is just the wrapping. My wife enjoyed it, which is huge, since she dismisses sci-fi. I just loved the story here of a man and woman facing their fate. And the idea of a man deciding the fate for someone else, and it's consequences.

Wonderful sets. Great acting and realistic reactions to the decisions they make.

Highly recommend. Muc, much, better than the Artsy Arrival.

Given how much Passengers reminds me of Red Dwarf (especially from the description), I almost jumped back when you said "it's cold outside" (the first lyric from the RD theme song)

As much as I dug the script, I've heard the movie isn't tha thot.  I'm sure stuff has changed since the draft I read, and adding Lawrence and Pratt definitely meant some rewrites, though I think they're a solid teaming for an idea like this.

I'll probably check this out on Blu-Ray.  I definitely want to drink in the design of the Avalon for sure.  You know what a nerd I am about those kinds of things.
