    The Passenger

    ★★★½

    A film I never heard of before & stumbled across by accident. But what caught my attention were the good reviews and that Blumhouse was one of the studios behind it. It's been a while since I've seen their name attached to something that seemed like a decent movie. But to my surprise, this was a thriller that was better than what even I was expecting.

Any slim interest I had in this faded very quickly and despite how short it was, It felt like it was never-ending. And it's a shame as this could've been interesting if only they put a hell of a lot more effort into it. This is as throw-away viewing as you can get.

    As a Steven Spielberg film, this is one of his top ones for sure as this had the high-energy fun & pure entertainment value that is undeniably Spielberg. As a musical film however, the style of it did feel a bit dated & passe compared to modern musicals. And while I've got nothing against the songs as they are, without question, iconic & legendary. The songs in this film felt more like nostalgia instead of a reinvention of the wheel to at least…
