Wow, those videos in Gabriels paper are REALLY cool!
I saw Contagion a little over a week ago at a second run discount movie theater for $3.Â I just found out it comes out on DVD on January 3rd, and there are several versions on Amazon.
Thanks! It’s ordered, so expect a TWiV analysis of the movie in January.
Its abt Nipah Virus right? in the movie??
