Movie Recommendation: Source Code
« on: April 19, 2011, 11:18:26 PM »
I just got back from seeing the movie Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal, and I was happily surprised to learn that it was all about parallel universes! I thought it was great sci-fi, and would be interesting for any Michael student to go see because of what they do with the parallels.

Great list, Jondalf! This movie is unusual, I think, because it deals with an aspect of parallel universes that I don't think has been dealt with before. But if I said what that was, it would be a spoiler so I'm not going to say it.

It's in my Netflix Queue ( I have over 4,000 films seen and reviewed, so if you are curious about anything more than a month old, good chance I saw it. I have a Musician/collector friend who did Horror Makeup in Hollywood, off and on for a year, so that Genre is covered. Thnen there are my 3,000 lossless Live recordings (R.O.I.Os  Legal for me to share with NO copyright payment, or infringement difficulties due to Artist total control of distribution decisions, ajudicated susbsequent to the Napster decision).  Besides, I HATE the sound (or lack thereof) of MP3s!  SO MUCH COMPRESSION  .  .  .  compare the actual size of an MP3 file with the actual sixe of the same song saved as: wav, .aiff or .flac !  MP3s have only 10% of the sound (data), only 10% of what you would hear, if you were listenint to the band LIVE!      - Jondalf

I've heard good things about it. I'll probably catch it when it comes out on cable.

Best,
Dave

Well, I am sick today with a concert I must sing TOMORROW, so I will be spending the day in bed with Netflix :) Most likely I will be cuddling exclusively with X-Files, though.

Too late!  I read through a multi-paragraph spoiler yesterday and it *does* sound interesting.  I usually won't watch a movie unless I can read the spoiler first.

I hope the concert goes well for you today.   :)

Thanks for info on MP3, Jondalf - I didn't realize.  What about MP4?

"What about MP4s ?" - They are better, but still compressed. Remember, this is all about money (bandwidth).  For true audiophiliacs
a gallimaufry of: .shn, APE, .aiff, .flac or.wav is preferred (.wma has processing problems with non-Windows equipment).


1: Neologism
2: Audiophiliac (c.- J.Thrasher, 1969)
3: Gallimaufry
4: Lexicographic
5: Etymological

(I am never far from my OED, if anyone needs lexicographic or etymological help)

Heh…I see we're all working ourselves toward junior members. Based on Shepherd's joke on the list, he must be getting a laugh about it.  ;-) 

Best,
Dave

I've seen Source Code.  I thought it was all right, but nothing special.
