Sci-Fi X Inside: Found Footage Genre
09-12-2012

The Blair Witch Project started this past decades what is now known to this day as the "Found Footage Genre". There are many films out there now which follow in each others footsteps. One of the most known, having the most sequels to date, of the genre is Paranormal Activity. Even though we as an audience know that these are fake, we still get captured in disbelief and are drawn into the way it's shot.

This past year was "to me" an interesting tv series called The River. Starting off I didn't think much of this series lasting 4 episodes. I however became interested in the actual mystery of the River and why exactly an organization wanted the "Television Host" Emmet Cole dead. Seems now we will never know since only after 8 episodes the series was cancelled. I just recently watched 2 of the latest "Found Footage" movies and found them interesting even though they were of B level grade. The Dinosaur Project and The Lost Coast Tapes are recommend watches! They may be below your level of quality, but hey, I liked them.

  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Mmmm chocolate, OH OH one second! AHHHHHHH, I wouldn't nessessarily call this a remake of the original 70's version of Willy Wonka and the Cocolate Factory because the official book was called Charlie and the Cocolate Factory. The visual effects where great, the Ooompa Loompa was shorter than usual and Johnny Depp's betray of Willy Wonka was a freaky Tim Burton look as usual in Tim Burton films. I found most of it humorous, though the 70's version had more twisted words that would make you think twice into the mind of Wonka. I do like how they went more into the character backstory of Wonka. What made him the man he is today. I gotta get me one of those, OH HUUUUUNKK HRRRRMMMMMMPPPP (cuzzzzbloosh) AHHHHH... Wonka Bars, though Dr. McCoy says I need to cut back on the sweets. Man I hate it when the water bounces back on ya. All-in-all I give this film a 7 out of 10. For visual effects and storyline. Join me next week as I travel to a planet where I will attempt Finding Neverland. Ahead flush factor 1 Mister!
