Cinecast Episode 207 – Don’t Anger Joseph Fiennes

 
 
Welcome to the shortest RowThree cinecast in years; under 90 minutes with a bullet! Instead of reliving Source Code (8 minutes at a time) we sort of blow right past it, the boys agree that it is a great sci-fi thriller, but it simply could not stir much conversation. Kurt gives a quick thumbs up for Joe Wright’s super-spy flick Hanna (more on that one next week). Andrew talks a bit about the TV-ish looking Camelot. Gamble chimes in on Insidious, the latest horror story from the Saw progenitors. And a brief chat on The Red Riding Trilogy. The what we watched section was brief, as Kurt needed his beauty sleep prior to road-tripping down to Carolina for ActionFest. Enjoy one of our rare ‘short-shows’ until we return (with a vengeance) next week.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Re: Source Code

At the end of Source Code he is in a parallel universe created by the Source Code. Every time he goes back, a new universe is created.

Duncan Jones has clarified this in some interviews:

I thought that was pretty obvious by the ending but from what I’m hearing not everyone caught that aspect.

When the director guy’s explaining source code, though, he says that it creates an alternate universe (though I don’t think he really understands the implications of that). Plus, the simulation is way too good – you can create programs with a lot of intelligence to react to the way you interact with them (like video games), but there are things in here that you’d never think to program in, like the conductor saying “well, you’re kind of strange” in response to Colter’s query. That to me suggested that each source code instance creates a new universe that carries on fully-formed based on each choice and interaction.

It’s almost exactly the way the multiverse works in Neal Stephenson’s Anathem. And similar to the some of the concepts in Fringe, though we don’t see the initial branching in Fringe.

Soon as Gyllenhal started to want to change things I started thinking along the lines that Wright really didn’t know what was going on. I know over on Film Junk they were thinking that Wright was out right lying but I took it more that he just didn’t know what he was messing with.

I definitely agree with Jandy on her thoughts.

I just came back from this last night and enjoyed it quite a bit. There were a couple of minor gripes (I found Jeffrey Wright a bit OTT and the final act was a bit sappy) but on the whole it was an absorbing watch with loads of interesting ideas in there.

I agree with Jandy and John. Plus it seemed clear to me the parallel universe thing was what they were going for.
