once the brain is dead, its dead. Don't get this alternate timeline business. Wheres the brain powering this alternate existence? what am I missing out on...
How is Source Code smoke and mirrors at the end?
Surely the whole point of the ending is we don't know if it represents reality, an alternative reality or even his final dream before he properly dies?

Was too unambiguously positive, would have been much better if it had ended two minutes earlier
The main point though is that the creation of an alternative reality from someone else's mind has to extrapolate beyond what that person already knows (i.e. this person does already know his female companion but not the whereabouts of the bomb) - and for this extrapolation to mirror reality would be phantasmagorical; the film's ending raises an interesting possibility but then smears it like a child with a paintbrush and a load of really bright colours
Moon otoh stuck the landing, and thus worked better as a film
