Last week I promised you that we’d be having a giveaway today that might rival the popularity of our Rango contest. And now the time has come to see if my prediction will come true.
What’s up for grabs this time around is a copy of Source Code (rated PG-13), the sci-fi thriller directed by redblog’s favorite son of David Bowie, Duncan Jones, and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmia, and the always excellent Jeffrey Wright.
A majority of the film is set on a doomed commuter train bound for Chicago. Doomed because there’s a bomb hidden in one of the cars that will kill all of the passengers on-board, and there’s nothing anyone can do to prevent this from occurring—because it’s already happened. See, Jake’s character is able to live the last eight minutes of one of those passengers’ lives—over and over and over again through a government time-loop program called the Source Code. His mission is to figure out who’s behind the bombing in order to prevent a much bigger future attack.
Now, all of that is pretty intense on top of being more than a little bit morbid. So let’s lighten things up for today’s contest, shall we? How about if you tell me who you’d like to switch lives with (for an entire day, not just a measly eight minutes) and why? If you do that—and keep it respectable and family-friendly in the process—you’ll be in the running to win a copy of Source Code.
