Heather(Gibby) (heather-gibby) | 424 comments Hubby and I went to see Project Almanac on the weekend, and I was disappointed. I also do not enjoy the single camera shaking all over the place type of filming (I am sure there is a more technical name for this). I would say wait for the DVD on this one.

Yeah, I'm not that big a fan of Blair-Witch-esque camera shaking. I bet that's even more annoying on the big screen. It seems like a great concept movie, but it's sad that it didn't transcend the concept. Oh well.
