Weekly DVD Drinking Game: Contagion

Drinking GamesJanuary doesn’t just mean it’s time for colder days and snowfall that makes traffic a mess. January also means that cold and flu season is fully upon us. And what better movie to watch during cold and flu season than Steven Soderbergh’s thriller about a killer virus that threatens to wipe out a significant portion of the world’s population.

Watching Contagion on Blu-ray or DVD gives you a sense of security because you won’t be terrified every time someone in the movie theater coughs. And that sense of security can be helped by knocking back a few beers or glasses of wine while watching the movie. Just get your flu shot first.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and don’t have sex with Gwyneth Paltrow, whether she’s been on an international trip or not.
