Review – Passengers

By guest columnist David Leninhawk.

“Passengers” has an interesting concept for a story. In the future, Earth has become overpopulated and too expensive to live on. A corporation has developed a new revenue stream out of colonizing distant planets, recruiting people to move there for free in exchange for paying 20% of their future earnings to that corporation for life, and sending cruise spaceships to and from those planets by putting people into “hypersleep”, where they can be preserved without aging for the duration of the journey.

In this film, a ship moving at half the speed of light takes 120 years to get to the colony. The film begins with a malfunction causing one passenger aboard the ship to wake up out of hypersleep 90 years before the ship will reach the colony, meaning he’ll grow old and die alone on the ship before it reaches the destination since he’s somewhere in his 30s.

Movie Issues: Jurassic World

Almost twenty-two years ago to the day director Steven Spielberg unleashed one of the greatest movies ever made, Jurassic Park. Not only did it change the way filmmaking was done, but also showed the world the first real usage and capability of fully working CGI. As far as the world was concerned, Spielberg had really cloned dinosaurs and we were watching the best documentary ever made. Many years later, and several attempts to revisit the franchise, we finally are able to return to Jurassic Park with Jurassic World. And what could have been a total disaster is more like a fun ‘welcome home’ by an old friend that you’ve missed.
