Parts Per Billion (Millennium Blu-ray)

Let's make this quick. Parts Per Billion is actually a fairly good quality flick with a bunch of big names, some which I am extremely fond of that basically goes through the interpersonal relationships of folks who are surviving during a sudden epidemic. Did I think it was a post-apocalyptic horror picture? Yep. I really did. Truth be told this is a very passionate movie; one filled with heartbreak and stories of great hope. In short, it's probably not the movie I would watch had I not missed the subtle hints on the cover art (Rosario Dawson and Josh Hartnett don't look like their killing any death-creatures from planet viroid). To say that Parts Per Billion wasn't foe me would be accurate, however I believe it could make a great date movie... unless you want to get laid. You see it's sorta depressing, but I suppose could stir some pretty good conversations over a plate of disco fries at the diner after the bar before your bed.

So check out the trailer, and read the synopsis. Make sure it's a good fit for you before diving into thinking "Well, Frank Langella was in a horror movie, Rosario Dawson was in a horror movie. Josh Harnett was in a horror movie". It's not a scare picture, and one that is becoming somewhat familiar with the news media hyping plague on the late night circuit and Dr. Oz time slot.

Synopsis from Millennium:

Parts Per Billion tells the story of three couples which are forced to make life-altering decisions in the face of a disastrous war that threatens to destroy the human race. Inspired and sometimes blinded by their love, Len, Mia, Andy, Esther, Anna and Erik are as flawed and beautiful as any of the billions who are facing this human-made biological disaster.

You can pick up Parts Per Billion now.

Hey I suppose we all have to get serious some time, but I don't think I was ready to get serious. I was ready for the end of times with camp and bad dialogue and less humanity. Don't cry Josh Hartnett.
