Passengers —  7/10

When I stumbled upon this movie, I was surprised by its high ratings because I’ve never heard of it. I’m happy that I decided to give it a try. It’s small scale, which is particularly highlighted by the scale of its background. Just three people and an android bartender, confined to a spaceship. The story is refreshingly new, and no plot hole damaged the suspension of my disbelief. The prominent actors, the CGI team, and even the science consultant, they all did their best. It’s a little gem.
