Should you go see it?
For several weeks now, every movie I went to see to the theatre ended up being boring or full of childish scene that could only be appreciated by 13 years old girls. Project Almanac changed all that. I highly suggest you go see the movie if you like perfectly crafted storyline and a lot of mind-boggling questions about time travel. Give it a try and comeback to me about it in the comment section of the post. Tell me what you think.
The plot of Project Almanac
A young genius named David Raskin, played by Jonny Weston, is trying to pay for his eduction at MIT. He is the son of a renown inventor who died a couple of years back. Trying to find a project worth sending MIT, David search through the belonging of his dead father. While searching his lab, he stumble upon a box hidden beneath the floor.
Inside the box, David, find what he think is the blueprint and the core of a time machine. Who could resist? Soon after he has found the box, he tries to complete the plans with the help of his friends who are also very talented engineer. Thanks to the recent advances in technology, he succeed in assembling the machine. Still hesitant to activate it by fear of what it may unleash, David, contemplate the idea of stopping the project. Going through his fathers thing, David find his father’s old camera. On it, he encounter the key to the whole adventure. While looking at this video which is several years old, David see his present self. The confirmation he was waiting for to know that the machine could actually really allow someone to travel time.
What I liked about Project Almanac
The story is very well crafted and interesting. Usually, time travelling movies are always based on evil criminal or mad scientific who cause the end of the world. I liked the new take on it from a perspective of young adult. What would happen if a kid, 20 years old, find out how to travel through time? Project Almanac tried to answer that.
The first idea that come to mind of David and his friends to test out the machine? Changing yesterday science test result of Quinn. That’s pretty innocent. Only after a few tries did they even start thinking about the lottery or move substantial quests.
Soon after they start travelling in time, they realize great changes have occurred in their original timeline. Plane crashed down from the sky, Tsunami ravaged portion of the country, and all kind of things that didn’t occurred in their time. They try to fix but they can’t seem able to pin point the causes for all of those disasters other than the fact that they travelled through time.
What I didn’t liked about Project Almanac
The majority of the movie is filmed with a handheld camera just like Blair Witch Project which caused me to seriously reconsider watching the movie but I’m glad that I did because it really was worth it. Go give it a try, I am sure you’ll really enjoy it.
