Tonight’s premiere of Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal (NBC, Thursdays, 10/9C) is a deeply disturbing delight that is the absolute antithesis of his Pushing Daisies. In his approach to Thomas Harris’ characters, he has come up with a style that might be described as The Profiler: Twin Peaks Edition – though that doesn’t nearly capture the heightened reality Fuller has created here.

Contagion- It Might Just Be The Cure for Insomnia or An Inspiring Reason to Not Socialize With Other People

contag

‘Contagion’ opens in theaters on September 8th.

The tagline for Warner Brothers newest theater release ‘Contagion’ is “nothing spreads like fear” and this movie relies heavily on that truism as its plot line. The first half hour of this star-studded movie plays out like an extended version of commercials for every disinfectant product you can think of. Like those commercials, ‘Contagion’ is filled with warnings about the horrors of touching everything and everyone around you.

For me, the problem with ‘Contagion’ and its premise is that, for the most part, it takes a very sanitized look at those horrors.  Instead of throwing in some good old fashioned suspense and visual effects, the movie plods along at the pace and style of those documentary movies you used to see in science class in high school. I half expected to be informed at the end of the credits to stay in our seats because there was going to be a test on what we learned.
