Contagion [movie]

Contagion [movie]

SINCE I WATCHED OUTBREAK I FIGURED I'D LOOK UP WHAT THE BEST DISEASE MOVIE WAS AND WATCH THAT. THIS MOVIE IS NEAT. IT'S THE ONLY PANDEMIC MOVIE I CAN THINK OF THAT GIVES THE DISEASE NO ABSURD OR SUPERNATURAL POWERS. LIKE IT'S NOT A ZOMBIE FLU, IT DOESN'T KILL INSTANTLY, YOU DON'T BLEED OUT YOUR EYES OR ANYTHING. IT'S LIKE, A DISEASE WITH A 20% MORTALITY RATE THAT SPREADS LIKE A FLU, IT MUTATES ONCE TO SPREAD EVEN EASIER AND YOU THINK THE MOVIE IS GOING TO GO "AND NOW EVERYONE HAS IT!" BUT THE FINAL DEATH TOLL IS LIKE 58 MILLION  AT THE END, WHICH IS A TOTALLY PLAUSIBLE DEATH TOLL FOR A SERIOUS DISEASE BUT ISN'T OMEGA MAN. I LIKE THE CHARACTERS KINDA DON'T DO THAT MUCH EITHER, LIKE EARLY ON A SINGLE DAD IS FOUND TO BE IMMUNE AND YOU THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BIG ACTION MOVIE HERO, HE'S GONNA BE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN SAVE THE DAY OR SOMETHING BUT HE KINDA JUST SITS AROUND WORRYING ABOUT HIS DAUGHTER AND NEVER REALLY GOES ANYWHERE OR DOES ANYTHING, AT ONE POINT HE SUGGESTS HE COULD GIVE HIS BLOOD AND THAT WOULD BE A CURE LIKE THE LAST OF US AND THEN THE DOCTORS ARE LIKE 'NO, THAT ISN'T A REAL THING'.  IT BASICALLY JUST FOLLOWS THE WHOLE THING BEGINNING MIDDLE AND END AND NO ONE REALLY EVER DOES ANY MOVIE STUFF.  LIKE THEY MAKE A VACCINE IN A VERY NORMAL WAY AND THAT'S IT LIKE A YEAR LATER.

PS. HELLO, I'M INTENTIONALLY FREAKING MYSELF OUT BY SEEKING OUT THIS KIND OF MEDIA.
