MOVIES FOR THE WEEKEND

Source Code on Saturday afternoon.  Looks sweet.  BIG fan of the director's previous movie (the sci-fi gem Moon with Sam Rockwell).

From Netflix is the internet porn drama Middle Men with Owen Wilson.  It sounds like sleazy fun and I've long been a fan of George Gallo (Midnight Run, Bad Boys).

Still have a bunch of HD On Demand options...

Seeing "Source Code" at 4:00. The reviews are glowing, the trailers are excellent, it's sci-fi...SO YES I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

Also wanna see "Insidious."

And I'm seeing "Your Highness" at a screening on Tuesday, as well as "Hanna" on Thursday.

Just saw "Source Code" and all I can say is what a great film. Although the action was a bit lacking the story was solid. The writing was great considering it was Ben Ripley's first real foray into writing something serious with a hyped release. Also Duncan Jones did a great job by directing which should be expected since he was the director behind Moon which was a generally liked movie. Jake Gyllenhaal's performance was as good as his performances in Donnie Darko and Brokeback Mountain which was a good for the film because of it's need for strong acting. Also Michelle Monaghan did a good job portraying her part in the film alongside Jake and was not lost in his shadow. Overall I would give this film a 3.8/5.0 for an original and surprisingly good story and good acting.

I agree with all that you say below, Peter. Loved it. You should check out Moon if you've never seen it. Jones is now a certified big-shot.

My favorite film of the year, actually. Smart, thought-provoking and purely, breathlessly thrilling. I could watch it over and over and over, etc.
