Okay, I’ve got to be completely up-front and honest about this one. I may or may not happen to have a bit of a man-crush on Ryan Gosling. I mean come on, the dude is good looking, charming, and after watching Drive, a total and complete freakin’ badass.
Dictionary.com defines Contagion as the communication of a disease by direct or indirect contact. After watching this film, there is no way that I will be able to shake hands, touch a door knob or use a public bathroom without thinking of the term.
Apollo 18 proves to us that being lost in space is a terrible thing. As rough as this may be, it pales in comparison to sitting through the 1.5 hours that was this movie. The film spends too much time trying to shock the audience, and not enough time on everything else.
The trailers for this one didn’t reel me in. I had my doubts that Zoe Saldana would be able to make this role interesting enough to sit through. Not only did Saldana make the role interesting, she single-handedly powered the film from start to finish.
