It's the same train but it's different

Source Code (2011)
Chosen by me because I like to go to the cinema a lot. And Duncan Jones' Moon was awesome.

A lot has been made over Source Code being a smart science-fiction movie, and it is for the most part but not from being especially clever over the science part (details are thankfully kept to a minimum) but by sticking to strong character work delivered by fine actors (Vera Farmiga once again delights bringing a lot to a rather simple role).
And by far it's smartest move is to be only an hour and a half long, managing to get a great variety over the stories repeated eight minutes without overstaying it's welcome.
A terrific movie, not quite as strong as Moon (which gets a small in joke here) but still marking Jones as a director to keep an eye on.
