The Source Code

There is a movie coming out soon where people use a device and - importantly - some software called "The Source Code" to travel back in time to relive the last 8 minutes of a person's life and investigate crimes or disasters. The one point I want to make is that "Source Code" is a silly name for a program, specifically because source code is what programmers like me write. It becomes the program, when you run it through a compiler, but calling the resulting program "Source Code" is like calling a finished movie "Undeveloped Film".

PS - I'm not sure if I'll see the movie.
PPS - The trailer didn't grab me, beyond that one point.
