Trivia

The bar scenes in "Passengers" are clearly inspired by the bar scenes in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980). Similarities include the fact that in both films the bartenders are identically dressed, carry themselves in a sophisticated manner, have a strange friendship with the lead male, are not concerned with payment, and are unable to leave. Another similarity: just like the Overlook Hotel bar, the primary light source shines from below rather than above. Finally, the iconic orange and red carpet design from The Shining can be seen in the seating area. See more »

Passengers was fantastic!
22 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

Passengers is yet another example as to why you should go see the movies professional critics hate & save your money on the ones they absolutely love. Going to see a movie at the theater is like $30 now for just 2 people & that's without visiting concessions. I don't know about everybody else but if I'm going to spend a few days worth of grocery money for a 2 hour movie experience I'm really hoping not to be bored to tears or looking at the time wondering how much longer it'll be until a movie is over. Passengers just ends up on my very long list, lately, of movies critics tried to bring down that were waves better than the ones they are directing people to see. This movie is visually stunning & the story telling is not only thought provoking but innovative while doing so! It was great to see a story like this one told in a way that didn't spend most of its time trying to dialogue it's way into Oscar nominations. If you are going to venture out to see a movie for the Holidays go see this one!
