In Passengers, two of the most beautiful people in the world find themselves awake and stranded on a spaceship with 90 years left till it reaches its destination. It makes for a lonely existence, but at least the ship they are on is what I think would be Apples version of a SmartShip, filled with talking computers and food provided without the need of a living person. Unfortunately, in Morten Tyldum’s (The Imitation Game) newest film, it’s the ship that is more interesting than the two humans, played by Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. Passengers is a movie completely out of touch with romance and science fiction.
There is so much singing in the movie Sing that I think they forgot that you should have an actual plot to go along with all the music. The newest animated movie from Illumination Animation is fast paced and spins you around like a record in a juke box, with a stat of 83 different songs being sung by multiple animals, from Pigs to Gorillas and Elephants. The colors are bright, the songs are an odd mixture of hits, making Sing one of the weirdest movies to provoke parents to bring their kids to the movies this holiday season, and that’s including Trolls a few weeks ago.
