No, not that source code. Just got back from a "date" which involved seeing Source Code. Given the amount of dross at the cinemas lately (Thor/F&F5/Adam Sandler shitfest), this was a nice surprise.
I won't go into details to avoid ruining it for anyone, but there is a reason its getting favourable reviews. Jake Gyllenhaal pulls off his part convincingly (and who doesn't like seeing Michelle Monaghan in a short skirt). The action isn't over the top, does include thinking (not as much as Inception, but I had no problems processing that one) and leaves you wondering till the end. I thought I had it figured out part way through.
Really the only bad parts were the fact its called Source Code and the occasional utterance of "charging the drivers" made me cringe.
Hopefully I'll get another date with this girl though and find another decent flick.
Edit: Wow, Im a Senior Member now, despite being here since 2002. Wish these titles werent based on post count

This guy I know has a laptop repair business. There's a plural noun in the name, and he used an apostrophe to spell it, if that tells you anything.
Anyway, my grandad's girlfriend took her laptop to him, and he told her she needed a new laptop because her drivers had gone bad.
It tell's me a lot. :)
So does he just pretend to fix laptops, or is he simply capitalizing on ignorance?
I was going to see Source Code in theaters, but it so happened that on that particular day, I was too tired from working the night before. It looked like an interesting movie. Limitless also looked interesting, even if it is based on the false premise that we only use a fraction of our brains. But hey, if the enjoyability of movies was directly proportional to truth/realism, there would be hardly any good ones.
Is enjoyability a real word, Sam?
