  1. I saw Contagion this past weekend and I have to say it seemed more for political purpose than for entertainment. There was a scene where one of the healthcare workers was talking to an assistant, the assistant started asking her questions (I can’t remember what the questions were) about some rumors, she asked him where he heard that and he said the internet, she said “and you believed it”, that was all that was said, in those 4 words she discredited the internet because I guess we should all just be happy with “mainstream media” as the only way to get the truth, I do know that the government is not happy with the internet access people have and when they find a way to control it they will. But something else I noticed about the movie, everyone working for the CDC and WHO were all just the sweetest, kindest most compassionate people on the face of the earth, just ready to put their lives on the line for the rest of us, while on the other hand, their was a blogger (Jude Law) who was a greedy, weasley, troublemaker who was trying to convince people they shouldn’t take the vaccine, hmmmm, well, don’t I feel “educated” after watching this movie, the next time there’s a deadly virus going around, I’ll rush out and let the government inject me with whatever poison they decide to mix together for me cause I know they only have our best interest at heart, they would never do anything to hurt the American people (insert sarcasm). Not that surprised that Matt Damon was in this movie.

  2. I have just watched “In Time” movie. The time is money metaphor was a good find. The realization as done in the movie… not so much. The concept carried more in it than they could squeeze out of the metaphor. You could’ve made the dystopia tens of times more realistic (as, indeed, a more ruthless and cruel punch with a rebellion of the shortlived against the immortals, which would be awesome since shortlived would have a complete disregard for their own lives whereas immortals would fear death like hell). Instead the robinhoody chap does all and all the rest do nothing. A bit of a letdown. This could’ve been a terrific movie but it’s just okay.
