I know a lot of people despised Passengers but I liked it- a lot. Admittedly there were some problems with it- and by some I mean 4.
1-WHY WOULD BARTENDER ACCIDENTALLY TELL AURORA?
The robot was specifically told not to say anything to Aurora about Jim’s decision to wake her up. Ten minutes later while Jim is going to the f-ing bathroom Aurora finds out and the robot doesn’t get reprimanded. No. I would’ve slapped the British out of that bartender. There was literally no reason to tell Aurora and screw up their relationship.
2- ONLY ONE DOCTORPOD? REALLY?
There are 5,000 people on board the Avalon and there’s only one DOCTORPOD. No. This is as frustrating to me as there not being enough driftwood for Jack. It doesn’t make sense!
3- CAN’T THEY TAKE TURNS ON THE DOCTORPOD?
Dammit fine. There’s only one DOCTORPOD. But why couldn’t Jim and Aurora take turns on it? Aurora could sleep for five years and then Jim could. They’d alternate for 90 years and they’d be 50 by the time Avalon lands on to Homestead II. Aurora could write her stupid book and Jim would be able to step foot in a new place. Win. Win. Win.
4- APPARENTLY NO ONE RESPONDED TO THE AUDIO MESSAGE AT THE BEGINNING
Jim contacted Earth but the computer said it would take 19 years for it to send. They skip over 90 years and apparently the audio message didn’t help. Aurora and Jim are presumably dead and buried in the weird forest inside the Avalon but what the f happened to that message? I need to know! There’s no way that they weren’t given help.
The more I rant about it the problems- the more angry I get. But I actually liked the movie. Passengers was a decent B- for me. Yes there were some (specifically four) problems with it but I’ll forget them. Jennifer Lawrence is up in space in a blockbuster disaster. What’s not to like? Get over the fact that there’s only one DOCTORPOD!
