Tagline: Change begins with a whisper

I was looking forward to this film having seen the trailer some weeks back. Having never read the book, I have to judge the film on it’s own merits. We actually missed the first few moments of the film, but it centres around life in Jackson [...]

Contagion (2011) | Review

Official Synopsis: A thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak.

Tagline: Nothing spreads like fear

I was a bit unsure about this film, not really fancying it from what I had seen of the trailer.  It’s not that I am adverse to a Pandemic-sweeps-the globe film, but it looked like it was going to be about bird flu and it turned [...]
