Passengers (spoilers)

So...our Christmas Day tradition includes an early movie and dinner at a Chinese restaurant. 

And this year, the movie of choice was Passengers.

It's a relationship movie masquerading as a science fiction film.

The basic premise is that they are in suspended animation, on a space ship headed to a colony world.  The ship malfunctions, and Jim (Chris Pratt) awakens from hibernation 90 years too soon.  He falls in love with another passenger (Jennifer Lawrence)  named Aurora (a salute to Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty?), and wakes her up prematurely so that he won't be alone.   As their relationship continues to develop, the ship's systems begin to fail.

The relationship sours when Aurora discovers that Jim woke her up, but the two must work together to save the ship from blowing up and killing everyone aboard.

Nice movie, worth seeing, but ...We saw the movie in 3D, but the special effects weren't so spectacular that 3D is required. If you haven't seen it yet, you should probably wait for the DVD
