Film Actually Ep038 (130) – Source Code

Hosts: David McVay & Josh Philpott (guest: Nicholas McVay)

This week Josh and David review “Source Code”. We also read some mail and take a look at some of the latest news and trailers from Hollywood including, the new “Green Lantern” trailer, Kathryn Bigalow’s Bin Laden film, “The Avengers” script leak and Schwarzenegger is up for “Terminator 5”!?! All this and we still have time for a brand new lists of five: Five Really Good Sophomore Films. As a bonus, stay after the closing music for a bonus review with Nicholas ‘The Little Geek’ McVay. So, pop open a drink and enjoy. Film Actually is the official movie podcast of geekactually.com.

*Update 31/07/2012 – Film Actually was a split off from the main Geek Actually show and originally maintained numbering continuity with that show. That logic no longer works as the shows have become two unique entities, so we have gone back and re-numbered the Film Actually shows to reflect their true episode number. This show is now officially episode 38 but when you listen to the show you will hear it referred to as episode 130, this is why. Sorry about any confusion or inconvenience.

Film Actually is recorded live every Saturday. Go to geekactually.com/live for the schedule and to watch it

Your show notes:


Chris-from-Brisvegas’ sent us an email about Schwarzenegger, but more on that later and Tristan wants us to now about this awesome news! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/25/bill-ted-3-movie-script-finished_n_853345.html

Feature Film Review

‘Source Code’ directed by Duncan Jones and written by Ben Ripley. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga & Jeffrey Wright.

When Decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he’s ever known, he learns he’s part of a government experiment called Source Code, a program that enables him to cross over into another man’s identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack. – Source: Summit Entertainment

Our Verdict: A really interesting and entertaining film that suffers from a muddy ending. Overall it is worth watching.

Chris-from-Brisvegas also sent us a link for this story
and the plot thickens as a rumour has started about the cast
But the big news is, it might not be real at all.

Lists of Five

This week our Lists of Five: Five Really Good Sophomore Films.
Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.

Stay Tuned after the closing music for a quick review from The Little Geek. This week he is talking about “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules”.

This episode carries an explicit tag due to infrequent coarse language.
