Troy was an amazing baseball player, however, at his heyday, the major leagues did not accept African Americans; but when they did, Troy was too old. Now Troy is fighting to drive the garbage truck for which he picks up trash. He had is first son Lyons with a girlfriend, served time in jail, met and married Rose, and had another son named Cory. His eldest son, Lyons is a 34 year old musician who doesn’t want to punch a clock and often ask Troy for money. Cory, 17, is being recruited to play football in North Carolina, works, and goes to school. Troy’s brother, Gabe, is suffering from mental issues since he was shot in WWII. He teaches his boys to punch a clock like him to ensure they can do right by the people who count on them. But is Troy doing right in their eyes?

Fences aren’t just to keep people out, it is sometimes to keep people in. And like that fence, Troy protects his heart to keep people out but fights to keep them around. This movie, which started as a play, is magnificently done. It proves that you don’t need high price sets and special effects to make a good story, just a great script and wonderful actors. You will see how flawed thinking can affect generations, but there is always trumpet blown and a ray of sunshine in the end.  See this one today.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars

The starship Avalon is headed to Homestead II to start a new colony on a new world after much success with Homestead I. The journey will take 120 years with 5000 passengers and 258 crew members in hibernation. 30 years into the trip, James “Jim” Preston wakes up. Afterwards, he realizes he is alone and 90 years early. He attempts to relay a message to the Avalon owners; but learns it will take 19 years to send and 55 years to get a response. Jim tries to make the most out of his time alone but he wants more.  A year later, Aurora Lane wakes up. She tries to find a way to go back to sleep but soon settles into her fate. As Aurora and Jim fall in love, they notice the ship is falling apart piece by piece. Within a year, Aurora learns a horrible truth and Gus, the Chief Deck Office, wakes up. Gus knows that if he is awake, something is horribly wrong. After analysis, they learn that the ship will reach critical failure and everyone aboard will die. The 3 must save everyone on board, but will they survive?

Passengers is a good movie to create “what would you do” questions. You understand Jim’s loneliness and moral dilemma; as well as Aurora’s love and pain. For the first 30 minutes Passengers feels like Cast Away in space … except you replace the Wilson for Authur (robotic bartender) (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). But it changes into a love story with the arrival of Aurora.  You will find yourself wondering “what else can go wrong” … and then it does. This is a fun movie at full price, but not 3D.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Jim, these are not robot questions – Authur

So we’re stranded on a sinking ship – Aurora

I need a minute – Gus

It was – Jim
