There are so many different space movies out there with different story lines but all with the same thing; space can be traitorous and the film Passengers story line is no different.
A space ship left earth towards a colony and colliding with a huge asteroid leaving it trying to repair itself until something malfunctions and wake up one man, Jim Preston. Finding out he woke up a whole 90 years too soon. But he doesn’t make the connection just yet on why he woke up too soon and after a while he is starting to feel lonely. His only friend being a robotic bartender. He walks around the cargo hold where all the humans are sleeping and he finds Aurora Lane. A gorgeous journalist/author. Now Jim is having a internal fight with himself if he should or should not wake her up for companionship.
Now, what would you do? Being all alone in space on a huge spaceship and your only friend being a robotic bartender who only understand logic and not emotions. Not only will Jim make a mistake he will regret, the ship is now also turning on them.
Passengers is an amazing film about love, friendship and saving lives on thousands. I’m not much for romance film but Passengers is the one film that got me on the edge of my seat, loving every minute of it and not knowing what will happen next.

I am a huge fan of the X-Men movie series but there where some faults in this one that doesn’t make sense with the first ones coming out several years ago.
So Apocalypse takes us back to the 80’s and we see some XMen at a young age when they first started and some being recruited as a “horsemen” for an old God who recently woken up after being asleep for 5000 years or so. He makes their powers stronger. And this God names is Apocalypse and he isn’t happy about the fact people forgot about him and not worshiping anymore so what does he do? He recruits 4 people who can be easily controlled, who lost something and they are usually being called the horsemen. So now it’s up to the X-Men to stop this creature. But he is strong so how do they stop him?
We see a young Jean Grey – before she could control her powers, a young Cyclops – being Jeans only friend and also, we get to see a young Kurt Wagner and he joined the X-Men. And it’s here nothing makes sense. Kurt Wagner was introduced in earlier X-Men movies and then Jean and Kurt didn’t know each other. So is there a story that hasn’t been told? I know I haven’t read the comics but for us who didn’t, for us this part don’t make sense.
Over all, X Men: Apocalypse is good. Got some cool effect but somehow – that’s about it. Feels like they are pumping the franchise for money and they lost what X-Men used to be.
