Passengers ★★★½

i had this recommended to me for soooooo long but i feel like sci-fi movies can be so overdone and predictable that i never really got around to it.

the premise is reasonably good and the visuals are stunning but the story itself got a little meh once it turned its focus into being more of a generic romance film as opposed to the science fiction thriller i expected.

overall not a particularly bad movie but i do think it was somewhat wasted potential and at times had me struggling to pay attention.
