Review of Project Almanac

Initial Thought: I have been wanting to see this since it was called Welcome To Yesterday. I always like a good twist to the found footage sub-genre. I also love time travel movies. I didn't have the chance until now.

Characters/Acting: Jonny Weston is a pretty great young actor and probably the only person I really recognize here with a quick glance. The characters are all pretty likeable. I swear Sam Lerner looks just like his dad. I think Ken Lerner must have discovered time travel and passes himself off as his son. It's funny the things people choose to do with time travel here. The things they do seem like things teenagers would actually try to do.

Story: A found footage film about time travel. What more could I ask for with a plot that only escalates from there? This is one of those situations were found footage really makes sense. Who wouldn't want to videotape the discovery of time travel? It had a few fresh ideas and interesting spins on old ones. I like how it ended. It didn't go exactly as I had expected it to.

Directing/Writing: The director is also helming the upcoming Power Rangers in 2017. Other than that these he hasn't done anything. The writers haven't done anything besides this and the upcoming Ghost Dimensions entry in the Paranormal Activity saga. This will determine how I feel about each of the upcoming films. With that I'm sure they will be watchable.

Final Thought: I thought it was pretty entertaining. It wasn't the best time travel movie I've seen, but it was worth checking out. Give it a shot there are way worse things out there.
