That's some low ass self esteem there Jim, especially for a guy that's stuck in space. Give your hand a break and grab a broad or three.

Passengers missed an idea;

Watched Passengers was waiting for the crew to see a couple dozen offspring from the original woken crew. Problem would be inbreeding. It would've been Adam and Eve the sequel. Maybe inbreeding was the human failure. Screen writers probably thought to create a few offspring to keep the two alive but thought better of it. I always felt that the Ark was the ship that brought humans to Earth and the only way to keep life going for the couple hundred years journey was to procreate. There probably isn't a way to sustain life in suspended animation so they probably needed to create life on the way.

Seems more appropriate for Movie Talk

Watched this one last night and I really liked it a lot. Though the quoted post below was a total missed opportunity because IMO it would have been so much better and would have taken the movie to another level.
