Review of Project Almanac

Neutral 5
Overall Rating
while at comic con in san diego last summer i sat in the massive hall h and watched paramount pictures present their upcoming slate of movies. one movie that took me by surprise was project almanac. the footage they showed made it look awesome. it kind of looked like chronicle. i couldn't wait for it to come out. and what a disappointment it turned out to be. dumb as all hell, with things that make no sense. how did the writers, the producers and the director let these things slide? two examples? one, a shirt with a massive stain on it is worn again, without being cleaned months later and that is the crucial clue for our character? two, going back in time to fix a problem over and over again yet not encountering the gazillion versions of yourself doing this? time travel movies are hard to do. they are hard to make the logic sound and the story work. the people behind this film didn't even try to make it work. then they chose to shot it found footage style. why? it makes no sense in the context of the film. why would they be shooting certain things? why would they be at these certain angles? and lastly why shoot in the cinematic aspect ratio of 2.35:1 if it is found footage? makes the found footage idea feel even less needed. this should of been a perspective movie, as in from the perspective of the characters, through their eyes. at least that would of made sense. it's also pretty boring. there is way to much scenes of people doing nothing. just talking. not enough action or sci-fi. just when you think it's getting better there is another dry spell of needless exposition or just nothing happening. dumb, dumb, dumb... what a disappointment.... bad, bad, bad... it had cool effects and sound though? does that mean anything? no, no, no... production design: 8 out of 10 cinematography: 5 out of 10 re-playability: 3 out of 10 originality: 4 out of 10 costumes: 6 out of 10 directing: 5 out of 10 editing: 6 out of 10 acting: 6 out of 10 music: 6 out of 10 script: 3 out of 10 52/100
