Last night I watched Contagion. I had been very excited to see this, as I found the trailer gripping. Even though friends told me it wasn't good, I still thought I would get into it. It just seemed to tap into fears that I kind of get off on indulging sometimes. Illness, death, the end of the world...

This had actors in it who I like a lot, and there was a good use of music and cinematography. The story centered on the medico-administrative aspect of containing a rapidly spreading deadly virus that was killing millions of people throughout the world. It was filmed in a way that created suspense. But in spite of this, most of the movie felt flat, predictable, and slightly plodding.
