#576: Insidiolicious, Part One

April 4, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #575: A Rose Is a Rose Is a Rose Is a Rose

A note about Angie's line: this strip continues from last week's Thursday comic, when they saw Insidious after close — so the events of this strip take place technically on Friday, April 1st.

EDIT: Since someone asked, Angie's boyfriend's Duncan first appeared in #418.

I managed to get both Insidious and Source Code in this weekend, as I'd hoped. I'll try to put up a view of each over at Deleted Scenes (T/Th), and I'm aiming for three updates this week (M/W/F), so check back soon and check back often!

Short version is, I liked both of them quite a bit:

Insidious was a particularly pleasant surprise, because I felt it lived up to its early reviews: it's a very good (if not spectacular) horror film that doesn't really break the mold, but manages to entertain throughout. There's a turn in the third act that will lose a lot of people (judging from other reviews and my friend Shanin's reaction), but I wasn't one of them.

Source Code was pretty much everything you'd expect it to be from the trailer, but one twist at the end seemed a little silly and extraneous to me. I'm still kind of turning it over in my head, but ultimately, I don't really care that much about it. The meat of the movie was smart, engaging, and a whole lot of fun.

What'd you see, and what'd you think?

The Triple Feature: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Returned, and Ms. Marvel

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Joe was stuck in traffic, so Tom Brazelton and I handled it like Captain America and Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier! We also talked about the French supernatural drama The Returned and the all-new Ms. Marvel.

Also, I messed up and forgot to hide the little icons so you can see me when I don’t think you can see me. SUPER PROFESSIONAL PODCASTING SKILLS.
