Movie Weekend


We went and saw Chronicle this weekend.  The trailer for the movie was done very good and made the movie look like something we would like to see.  Of course, the trailer always shows too much of the movie, but I figured that would be okay this time since the story for the movie was not too detailed in the trailer.

The movie is about these three high school boys who go down a hole one night and end up having special powers later.  However, the main story line is about one of the boys and his home life and it sets a mood for what kind of character he later becomes.  

There were a few things I did not like about this movie.  The first one was that most of the movie was like the Blair Witch project and that the main character did everything from behind a video camera.  So this made the movie seem like a home movie.  Secondly, there just did not seem to have much "meat" to the movie.  Sure, there was some action at the end as the character flew around and battled, but it just didn't have a lot to offer. 

The two best parts of the movie were watching the pranks that the boys pulled on people using their special powers.  The second part was how the bad guy ends up dying in the end (oops, did I spoil it?).  Not likely....
