Movie Time! Contagion

Published October 3, 2011 - 2 Comments

I went to see Contagion last night.  Wow.  One of the better films I’ve seen in a long time!  If you have the chance to see this movie, you should definitely do so.  It has a great cast (including Lawrence Fishburne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, and Marion Cotillard) and follows the different characters lives as they try to cope with a global virus pandemic.  Without giving anything away, don’t bother getting attached to your favourite characters.  This thing kills quickly.

I was really impressed with the tempo of the movie.  It moves quickly, yet doesn’t feel like it’s bouncing all around.  I also found it to be quite believable.  It’s not a stretch of the imagination to imagine that something like that could happen.

And there was one particular line that made me laugh… when a scientist was telling a blogger that he’s not a real journalist.. and that “blogging is graffiti with punctuation“…  I loved that!

Oh and for anyone who watches Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston had a small role as a military general… wow.. talk about transformation!  No bald head, and no goatee…  I kept thinking “Geeze that voice sounds familiar!  Who IS that!?”
