      Good movie; great steelbook!

      Here's another great looking steelbook from BestBuy. It's glossy and it just looks amazing. Though being glossy means it's a fingerprint magnet (which doesn't bother me at all). The front artwork is essentially the same as the movie poster, but the ship is also visible, along with the planet. The backside has artwork from inside of the ship, and inside the steelbook contains a shot of the hibernation pods (you can see Jim and Aurora in them). Moreover, Sony is smart in making a 3-disc 4k + 3D + standard 2D + digital hd combo. I wish all movie companies/distributors provided combos like this because it makes it near future proof. The movie itself somewhat depends on your views. It had some controversy regarding the two main characters. Basically, it looks like Aurora developed Stockholm Syndrome with her captor Jim. I thought it was a bit absurd to even say she developed that condition. It's not nearly psychological what Jim did, and Aurora is a strong character who seems more than capable of fending herself (<<<>>>). Nevertheless, I thought it was a good sci-fi flick with some romance, drama, and wonder. Any action sequences are hardly prevalent in this film so don't expect it. Overall, it's a great steelbook to add to your collection. If you don't mind the controversial part of the movie, if you think it's there, and you like sci-fi romance, then watch it. Rent before buying, and if you plan to own this movie, get the steelbook!

      Better than I expected

      Passengers was a pretty big hit in theaters, yet the marketing seemed to divide audiences. Some said it was a science fiction movie, others said it was actually a rom-com wrapped in space. Well which one is it? I would say it's a romantic science fiction movie. Sounds yucky right? Turns out to be pretty engaging and fun, and not totally devoid of food4thought. I won't get into the plot, and I would recommend watching this without any prior spoilers as the plot had a bit of a twist to it that can be ruined by trailers etc. The first act is pretty much straight up science fiction, and it sucked me in. Great visuals and a classic astronaut at the vast frontier story about survival and problem solving - almost like the most excellent The Martian. The 2nd act, without spoiling anything, does become more oriented towards the relationship between two characters, and doesn't shy away from elements of the romance genre. The 3rd act is a little more conventional Hollywood blockbuster - as a crisis needs to be overcome in order to reach a conclusion. While I really liked the first part, there was enough in the remainder of the movie to keep me fully engaged, despite slipping into some typical summer movie conventions. The two leads carry the film, with Chris Pratt doing his best every-man performance as he is featured in almost every single scene/shot of the movie. The directing is surprisingly tight and I have to give extra points for the music - the original score is really excellent, providing the perfect atmosphere and beats that helped the drama unfold. Also, the production values here are high - this movie is nice to look at and listen to. While not a particularly mind-blowing science fiction story, there is enough to elevate this over some of the other mind-numbing fare that Hollywood releases in the summer. Passengers falls comfortably between art and junk - it's somewhat elevated escapism.

      Great Disc of Unfairly Maligned Movie

      When Passengers was released, it seemed as though a bevy of negative reviews killed what was set to be one of the biggest hits of the year. A combination of high budget science fiction and a romance between two of the most charming and popular actors working today seemed like the perfect recipe, but it was one plot point, one I wont spoil here, that left such a sour taste in the mouths of some that they were outspoken in their disgust. The plot point in question concerns a moral dilemma and despite the film's attempts to address that dilemma head-on, it was too much for many people to overcome and transformed the romance into something they couldn't enjoy. For me, that plot point was interesting and I felt it was handled well enough to overcome any discomfort. Moreover, the rest of the film worked quite well, particularly the somewhat sparse but awe-inspiring sequences featuring jaw-dropping special effects. The nightmare answer of what would happen if you were swimming in a pool and gravity suddenly disappeared is a real standout. It will likely all come down to your opinion of the film which will largely come down to that one plot point, but if you enjoyed the film, it's hard to find any fault with this release. Too often over the last year, I've been forced to try and choose between the 4K or 3D release of a film or otherwise decide if it was worth making a double purchase. Here, you get the gorgeous looking film in every format you could want and with the unfortunate backlash against the film lowering the price, it feels like an easy purchase to make.

      This is the way to release movies. 4K, 3D, bluray

      This is the way studios should release movies. I still love 3D and if it is a choice between buying the 4K release and the 3D release (if both are offered), I buy the 3D version every time. "Passengers," in my opinion, was a fantastic movie. The 4K version really made the colors seem more saturated and lifelike. The 3D version, really made the ship come to life. As stated in another review watching the 3D gave you a real feel of the ship and space occupied inside. "Objects that looked and felt flat in 2D reveal their true shape in 3D; the coffee machine, for example, has a raised panel that stands quite a bit out in front of the icons behind it." I always choose the 3D versions for this reason, you gain all the depth of the "being there" feel. Unfortunately, many manufactures were stuck on selling "Active" 3D equipment where you had to change batteries in your glasses and it was the glasses that would "flicker" giving some people headaches. Passive 3D for home entertainment is the way to go (it's like the "Real 3D" you see at the theaters) where the glasses can be used with ANY Passive 3D tv. Active 3D glasses have to be "synced" to that particular tv. Anyway, I digress. PASSENGERS is a great movie and I highly recommend it. If you have the capability, I would recommend the 3D first, then the 4K UHD. Both are fantastic.

      Pretty good movie, even better soundtrack!

      I took a chance buying this before seeing it, but I'm glad I did. The reviews were rather mixed, but it looked to be up my alley (sci-fi/space adventure). The story is good, the visuals are amazing, the acting is great (I like both Pratt and Lawrence(s)), but honestly it's the soundtrack I really like the most. (Music by Thomas Newman, I have a couple other soundtracks by him. I bought it LONG before I got the movie!) Besides the main plot of the story it really asks questions of your morality, making you think, "What would I do if I were in that persons situation?". "Would I do what Jim does to Aurora in his situation?". "Would I react the same way Aurora does when she finds out the truth in her situation?", etc. Some peoples answers may vary, but if we're really honest with ourselves, most of us would probably react the same in either situation just as the characters did. (I know I probably would!) Overall I'd give the movie a 3/5 stars, I like it well enough. The soundtrack bumps it up to 4. I'd definitely recommend checking it out (I got my copy from HDtracks in 24bit quality). The song at the end credits "Levitate" by the Imagine Dragons isn't included, but you can get it separately from somewhere like 7digital.

      A visually stunning 4K reference disc

      My love of this movie (story, acting, etc.) is purely subjective, and while I am not your typical romance movie watcher (even when romance is in space) these two actors just clicked. But story aside, the visuals in this movie are STUNNING and even as I sat in the theater last Dec watching this on the big screen I couldn't help but think, "This is going to be amazing on 4KBD" and it is. The production quality of the movie combined with gorgeous special effects pop off the screen in the 3D version, and when you want to take it to the NEXT LEVEL pop in that UHD disc and remember why you own a 4K TV (hopefully a Sony model). Words can't express how awesome this movie looks in true 4K so I will stop typing now.

      Loneliness in Space

      I enjoyed the first 2/3s of this movie. We watch how someone deals with waking prematurely from sleep hibernation and realizing that for the remaining decades of his life he will be living alone in the sterile, confined, unnatural environment of a space ship. We watch how that stranded person deals with the possibility of including another person in his life, ending his loneliness but dooming that person to the same fate of living out her life in that unnatural container that is the space ship. That part was novel and interesting. The last 1/3 of the movie is watching the struggle of man (and, in this case, woman) against malfunctioning space ship machinery. That theme is pretty common in space travel movies, going back to "2001: A Space Odyssey" and including all the recent ones. That theme turns the movie from a unique psychological examination of loneliness into just another space travel action thriller with exploding space ship pieces, and makes the movie less interesting. But the majority of the movie is interesting.

      The Columbia Pictures movie entitled "Passengers" is a highly entertaining combination of a science fiction thriller and a romantic drama. The science fiction elements are very interesting and thought-provoking, especially when one contemplates the physiological and medical challenges of a 120-year period of hibernation, during this lengthy transit to a distant planet. Of course, the inevitable love story is the central theme of this movie, and the multiple technological failures triggered by the collision of the interstellar vehicle with a very large asteroid, provide the requisite amount of excitement and suspense. The cast is outstanding, with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt starring in the lead roles, along with Michael Sheen and the incomparable Laurence Fishburne delivering great supporting performances. I thoroughly enjoyed "Passengers," and I give it a five-star rating, along with my highest recommendation.
