I need you to understand something. I wrote this for you. I wrote this for you and only you. Everyone else who reads it, doesn’t get it. They may think they get it, but they don’t. This is the sign you’ve been looking for. You were meant to read these words.
Jake Gyllenhaal | Source Code
Source Code 
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Steven 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 the “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.
Filled with mind-boggling twists and heart-pounding suspense, ‘Source Code’ is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones.
It was a long time since I last made a movie review, I think the primary reason for this is I haven’t felt the urge to do so lately. But please let me know if you’re interested in more movie reviews. As a few of you might recall (mostly from goodreads) I’m participating in the 50 book challenge and a long side with this goal I’m trying to watch 50 movies as well.
Back to the thoughts, shall we?
- Cards on the table. I started this movie and decided to be productive and clean at the same time while I watched it, well it didn’t work out as well as I thought. I ended up sitting on my bed eating popcorn and the vacuum cleaner was still in the closet.
- I was hooked after ten minutes or so, not only because Jake Gyllenhaal looks to handsome in this movie but also because the acting was more than superb from all the participants.
- When I heard that it was a sci-fi thriller I thought it would be suffering from all-alliens-want’s-to-take-over-the-world-and-then-there’s-humans-who-fight-them-but-survive-in-the-end. But as usual I was wrong. The concept source code and the governments role were fascinating and the world building was intense. I love myself some parallel universes and mind games.
- In the middle of the movie or so I thought that it was very slow paced and it seemed dragging but I now think that it was quite needed for the conclusions in the ending.
- Overall I really loved this movie and it’s a new favorite indeed. If you haven’t watched it I highly recommend you to check it out. Here is the youtube trailer, give it a go!
My rating: ★★★★★[5/5]

And that ladies and gentlemen is the end of the list.
With a fever from hell I stayed in bed all day watching several episodes of Once. Oh dearie, as epic as usual.

Peter Pan by J.M Barrie
Genre: Childrens, Classic, fantasy
Release Date: 1911
The summary: One night Peter Pan lost his shadow in the home of the Darlings. When he returns to find it he accidentally wake up Wendy, John and Michael who soon becomes his friends. He teaches them to fly and take them to his home, Neverland. There waits great adventures involved a certain captain Hook and how to believe in fairies.
It’s also a story about magic and how to believe in the impossible. A story about friendship, love and adventures.
- I’m one of those people who didn’t read Peter Pan as a child but was highly obsessed with the Disney movie. It was, and will always be one of my all time favorite movies.
- The book is beautiful written and has the most stunning illustrations that I devoured and the only thing that disappointed me was how short it was, I wouldn’t mind more and longer stories.
- And what did surprise me? The characters, mostly Peter Pan since I always imagen him as a cute little boy and his character in the book is so cooky! What!
- It’s a story of making the impossible possible by believing and taking action.And it’s so childish and wonderful so one cannot help but love it.
- It was a quick read, but alas it was a beautiful one. I suppose it’s safe to say that this is one of my favorite classics and that I’ll be reading this again soon. It’s sad that I didn’t get to hear the story as a child, because it would’ve been such a story a younger myself would love even more than the present. I would be one of those children who had their window open at night waiting for a certain boy to tech me to fly.
IAll children, except one, grow up.
