Quarantine and Dogfish Head's Midas Touch
Welcome to the review of the biggest “one watch” movies I own, Quarantine. What’s a “one watch” movie you ask? Well, it’s a term I invented to describe a movie that’s pretty good the first time you watch it, but you never really want to see it again. This term can cover all genres. Perhaps there’s a Mr. Bean movie that you giggled at and sat through but would never watch again. Or maybe more realistically it was the time you decided to get more cultured and watch Schindler’s List. Beautiful movie. You were in tears. But you’re not going to pop that one in on a Saturday night with a bowl of popcorn and a beer. Such is Quarantine, the American remake of the Spanish movie REC (see last blog post). It casts Angela Vidal (Dexter’s sister) as the lead screamer…ahem…character….in a very close remake of the Spanish version. The lucky beer for tonight’s movie is Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch!!! Due to the high cost and availability of Dogfish beers (other than the 90 min IPA which is everywhere) I haven’t reviewed many of their beers. So here is one of the best genre breaking beers out there!
Overall – 4/5
