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 »
The distance from Earth to Arcturus is 36,6 light years. Traveling at 50% light speed it would take the ship 73 years to get there. Not 120.
120 years is a good time, assuming that the acceleration is not instant. See more »
I cannot understand all those bad reviews of Passengers
The movie is definitely worth your time. Firstly, 10/10 for realism. I would absolutely have done all those things if I were in their shoes. Secondly, the acting is one of the best I've seen (I was pretty skeptical about J.Lawrence but not anymore after this movie; and Chris Pratt's acting keeps getting better and better since GotG). The plot is quite unique (I do not believe I've ever seen another plot that resemble this). Lastly, the visuals is BREATHTAKING (I absolutely adore the ship design).
The pacing was a little bit too fast at the end but not that noticeable.
Sometime a simple movie with simple plot is better than s**t like Batman vs Superman because there are less space for mistakes. Also, do not expect much action in this movie (I expected more action but in the end I was OK without it.)
Also, sleeping beauty is also named Aurora xD
