One Sentence: Not the fun type of part movie.
Release Date: 02-Mar-2012
Nudity: Lots of boobs.
When I left the theater after watching Project X, I let out a sign of relief. The stress was finally over. I could let it go. This party wasn’t a good time. Maybe it is my nerdy, orderly personality, but I wasn’t thinking about the sex, or drugs, or alcohol. I was thinking about the house, and the neighbors, and the destruction. I was fearful of the kids, and as I write this sentence I realize I am fucking old, and this movie wasn’t made for me.
Project X is a Cloverfield style movie about the chaos that ensues when 3 high school kids throw a party. It has almost no plot, is not shot very well, and is only humurous to the point of a slight smile. It gets into some scary dark areas and made me feel uncomfortable, not like I was having a good time. I didn’t like the kids, didn’t like the “romantic,” storyline, and just wanted it to be over. I really didn’t have a fun time watching it. I felt like it was perfect for the 18-25ers, but this one was just not for me. It was the extreme reality version of Superbad with no one you cared about, and not nearly as funny.
I think most of you could skip this movie. I don’t think there is much here for anyone. It feels forced and that it is attempting to be cool, and on trend, and by doing so, feels too fake and overdone. I personally wouldn’t even rent this one, but I think some of you might like it, so if you think it looks good, I would wait for it and get this one at home. No need to pay full price.
