Source Code (2011)
« on: February 08, 2013, 08:05:10 pm »

Source Code is a brilliant movie and it's exactly the kind of film I get off on. I love movies that go outside of the box and make the viewer work at paying attention and then being rewarded at the end. Complex doesn't necessarily mean a movie has to be confusing, it just has to be original with a unique narrative in telling it's story. Best way to describe this would be a mash up between the sensibility of "Time Travel" and Groundhog Day with some Inception thrown in for good measure as our hero Capt. Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) has 8 minutes to find out who the bomber is and stop a disaster, not just on a train, but in the city of Chicago as well. The 8 minutes keeps replaying over and over until he can complete his mission. But there is more than just the mission itself that really makes this one fly. The twist is definitely one that makes you go "whooooa".

I won't go into great detail about much of the movie and certainly not about the twist because this is a movie that you have to experience first hand to get the most out of it and I will not ruin it for anyone that has yet to see this. But I will say this, half way through the movie I told myself that this premise is tailor made for multiple sequels and sure enough, they basically set it up that the project can continue on. So, I am very hopeful that we will see more. This is ripe for a kick ass franchise. Elsewhere, I love Michelle Monaghan and I can't get enough of her. Am I the only one that thinks she could be the big sister of Emma Stone?

Anyway, I highly recommend this as a Buy. This is a movie that will benefit multiple viewings. Go get it now!

Great movie. I'm not sure about the sequels though. Right off I thought about M. Night Shamalyn and his twists. The story telling would really have to change things up quite a bit to maintain its mystery and entertainment.

But yes, check Sourece Code out, it's a fun movie to follow along.

Rumor has it that this is being developed as a TV series. I think this is a bad idea. They need to see what they can do with additional movies with the original cast before trying to push this on the TV viewing audience and I fear that it would be watered down as well.

This WAS  a tv series.  It was called Quantum Leap.  That's why Scott Bakula is the voice of Jake's dad.  He even says "oh boy!"

I really need to see some Michelle Monaghan, it's been a while, cause I want to see that Emma Stone sister thing (Emma's style in Gangster Squad is still in my head and I can kind of picture Michelle admonishing her for being so sexy).
