My latest MSN DVD column still hasn’t gone up, so your distraction today is the AV Club’s newest “I Watched This on Purpose” — in which Tasha Robinson tackles Rodrigo Garcia’s utterly forgettable “Passengers”, the plane-crash-survivors drama with Anne Hathaway and Patrick Wilson.
Spoilers abound, obviously, since “Passengers” is a movie with a Really Big Twist, and the nature and execution of that twist is central to the movie’s failure. (Funny, there’s another movie out there right now with the same problem.)
But then, “Passengers” is the kind of movie that arrives pre-spoiled, in that it’s entirely awful. So jump right in!
