Notes from the Manager
To be continued… after I actually see Insidious! The film has been getting very, very positive reviews, all saying the film is a genuinely scary supernatural horror movie that doesn't rely on gore or cheap jump scares, so I'm actually a little curious.
Source Code is also out this weekend, and while I must admit the trailers look like a cool premise that could easily veer off into really bad sci-fi-romance territory, I have faith that Duncan Jones (the writer-director of the superb Moon) wouldn't take a script that predictably, generically bad. And again, early reviews have been really strong.
So yeah! It looks like — potentially — a really great weekend for fans of indie genre flicks. I'm going to try to see both of these this weekend, but we'll see. Are you looking forward to seeing either of these this weekend, neither of them, both of them, or something else entirely?

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?
The film opens July 25, 2014.
Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
