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?

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
