Hello everyone, and welcome to 111 Archer Avenue. What started as a film review blog has become my online judgment forum. I will review the occasional movie or DVD, post an interesting trailer, critique a newly-read book, talk about sports, and share my thoughts and opinions on random issues. You can also follow me on Twitter (@OlieCoen) or check out my work on DVDTalk.com. Thank you and enjoy!

Trailer - Contagion

Director: Stephen Soderbergh
Starring: Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow
Production year: 2011

Yet another virus threatens to destroy the entire world population. I understand that it's possible, and that fear drives audiences to go see movies like this, but there has got to be some saturation point. And this may be an all-star cast, but that only makes me suspicious as to what's being covered up by these big names; i.e. the dialogue and the plot. This movie may not have an original bone in its cinematic body, but, like the rest of America, I'll probably see it anyway.


  1. I have a real problem when it comes to trailers. They get me excited about movies that I know will not in any way be good.

  2. I have the same problem with Matt Damon.
