Passengers: Film Review

Passengers: A Film Review When I saw the trailers for Passengers it looked interesting so tickets were bought well ahead of time and I was looking forward to seeing some sci fi that wasn’t Star Wars (just to be clear – I adore Star Wars but it is great for me as a massive sci fi fan to see films that are not part of an ongoing saga). However, when […]
