I appreciate the guest post, Ignacio Phillips.

I accidentally watched the scariest movie ever last night. It’s called Case 39. Do not watch it, unless you like to be scared to death. I thought it was going to be just a good, normal movie about a social worker and her experiences. Renee Zellweger is in it, so I thought it was going to be a cute movie.

I had no idea that I had accidentally rented a horror movie! Since I had paid for it, though, I thought I should finish it. Oh my goodness! I was terrified all night and had the worst nightmares ever. It was awful. If it wouldn’t have been for my ADT Tennessee, I honestly don’t think I would have been able to get any sleep at all. I don’t know how some people watch movies like that, much less enjoy them. It was freaky and scary. I am surprised Renee Zellweger wanted to be in a movie like that. It is not her style at all. It was definitely a horror movie, which I do not like.

I called The Artist a “fun movie”, well Project X was a blast, but in a totally different way. Right from the get go, you feel like you’re apart of the central group throwing the party and as the party progresses, so does your perception how into the party you are. This is probably the best party movie ever made and the best use of “found footage” style filmmaking since the original Paranormal Activity. This film really does make the viewer want to be at that party but at no point do you want to ever throw that party.

Oliver Cooper steals the show as “Costa”, the brains of the operation. He really is a younger version of Jonah Hill and he steals the spotlight just like Jonah did in Superbad. I’m excited to see where his career goes from here. The rest of the cast really fit there roles well. The only problem this film has is that it wasn’t as funny as I thought it would be. Some of the jokes fall flat and some opportunities are missed when it comes to making jokes.

The film is billed as a comedy-thriller and, well, when I first saw that I didn’t know why that was– but by the time the film ends, you know exactly why. I gotta admit, I didn’t expect it at all, but the film handles its shift in tone amazingly while still staying true to the tone it set from the beginning.

If you want to turn your mind off for two hours and just have a blast at the movies, Project X is for you, as this filmmaking experience is insane — in a good way.
