I've always enjoyed movies with time travel in them. I watch Star Trek all the time, and that type of story line is something quite common. The story here is good, but it does have at least one issue. The best part of the story is finding the consequences of changing the past, and how that affects the present time. David Raskin, in one particularly intense scene, tries to make sure everything in the present is preserved by making a diagram on a chalkboard showing what he can and cannot do in the past so that the bad consequences are minimized or eliminated. All of us, at one time or another, have dreamed of what it might be like to go into the past and change it so that our present lives are better. At the end of the movie, the action gets a little confusing. David and his "girlfriend", Jessie Pierce, are having an argument and suddenly there are two Jessies. Soon thereafter, both of them disappear, never to be found. The authorities are chasing David, presumably...
I finally watched this after having it on my list for a year. I wished I watched it sooner.
Project Almanac is shot in the style of "let's film everything in high school" type of film—with time travel. My one main issue with this film is the shaky camera. I understand having a shaky camera for effect, but when you're shooting a scene that isn't very hectic and you're still shaking, then you may need to have a medical checkup for Parkinson's. It can't be that difficult for a character to hold a camera steady.
Shaky camera aside, the film works well for a teenage time travel film. For us to believe teenagers can make this happen, they convince us that they are very smart, and along with some blueprints they easily create a time machine. Once that's out of the way, the teens do what teenagers would do with a time machine: retake a test, getting back at a bully, winning the lottery. All of this is done with slight twists for humorous effect...
This movie is awesome and is a really great watch. Time travel and all the excitement and danger that comes with it are all in this movie and how a group of teenagers would go about using it is right on the money. The character David is a young man that you can't not like. You get that feeling in this movie like u know the characters and every event is a nail biter, pillow gripper, a yell at the TV like they can hear you. David is a great kid and u can't help but feel for the guy. It takes u back to when u were that age and wat u would do and feel in his situations. The decisions that he must make r of the hardest one could ever imagine having to make and the path that he chooses is wat makes him so great. But u need to watch this movie in order to see wat I mean. You'll all have ur own personal memory of someone just like him when u were in high school or may have been u urself and that ultimate question and wish, what if? U gotta watch to find out. There's so much depth to it that u...
