How to Survive

'How to Survive' is a film review podcast with a twist. The discussion centres around one key question: 'How would you survive in this movie?' Each episode centres around one classic movie. Often, they are horror movies, but there are also lots of thrillers, action movies, adventure movies and the occasional romantic drama for good measure. If you've ever rolled your eyes when the victim goes outside alone; tutted when the killer returns from the dead; or shouted 'DON'T GO IN THERE!', this is the podcast for you.

It's episode 74... and time to wake up...

Passengers (2016) tells the story of Jim, a passenger aboard an interstellar spaceship which is heading to a new settlement. The passengers are all kept in a state of hibernation for the 120 year journey. Disaster strikes, and Jim wakes up. Driven mad by loneliness, will he wake up another passenger, Aurora, sentencing her to death for his own selfish ends? Yes he will. But will they survive?

We talk about the difficulty of creating working robotic legs well in advance of them being useful; a well-calculated economy of sharing out a lifespan; and some of the most glaring mistakes in the history of spaceship design.

All of which leads to one big question: 

How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... 

If you live an ordinary life, all you'll have are ordinary stories.

Another classic film solved by the best movie podcast in the world.
