THE IDEA OF TIME TRAVELING

What first comes into your mind whenever you hear the word Time Traveling? For me, Returning to the History. Returning the moment that I've missed and would never be right again.

I love the Movie's Theme, Science Fiction which the main point is Traveling through time, Amazing right? The exciting of being in a place where in the character would be and one thing that I like about this movie, Project Almanac. Is their ability to scare people in a way of making a big change in the characters life, Scare in a good way when they are having a great time but at the same time, Scare in a bad way when they actually did a big tragedy. 

Jessie Pierce: When you said time machine, I thought dinosaurs or at least Woodstock, you know?

Honestly, The movie stress me too. Questions begin to pop into my mind, questions like How David will fix it if the time sequencing is not right anymore and He doesn't have an idea about what's happening after he was out of the current time? Especially, He is traveling alone which he forbid to anyone of the group to do it.

But I think, This what make a movie great. Audiences and viewers would be stress out too and satisfied by the movie flow. 8.5 out of 10 for the stressing factor of the movie ~

AMBITIONS' ACHIEVED

One thing I like here is that they show the positive side of having a Time Machine mainly the characters are teenagers (Even me, I relate so much to their adventure) Number 1 of the biggest thing, WINNING LOTTERY TICKET

I couldn't stop the laughing when I saw this Scene. I was like, what? almost 2 million dollars is enough. haha! But as you can see, Their face is unexplainable. Watch the movie and you'll know why ~

Don't lie but you dream of having a time machine to get a lottery winning numbers and go back to the past, Well this movie is for you. You'll encounter a bunch of cheat of time here and that's why I like the movie more ~

Jessie Pierce: You know that you can do this. What are you waiting for?

 Second is, THE CONCERT/PARTY. Yep The party that they've missed and the whole social media is talking about.

This Scene didn't bother me a lot cause on that day a bunch of people or let say the whole place is full of party goers and I think there's nothing big would change in the future, but as they say "Small Things Matter"

One thing, how did they got to that place? Isn't it's only Time Traveling not Place Traveling? Isn't weird to be in the school in the present time and then jumps into other places in the past? I don't know then, It might be they travel literally right? Oh well, it's not in the movie.

 

ALL IN ALL THE MOVIE IS...

Great! Experience was Great, Especially when the film was recorded by a first person's point of view. It gave such a realistic feeling, and the fact of you being in the movie, together with the group while Traveling through time.

Best time to watch? Bedtime! Why? The ambiance is relaxing even though it's stressing, get it? Characters are looking at you, Thats fun and relaxing, believe me ~

BUT...

The Ending is not satisfying, for me. I'm seeking for more, for more twist and changes but nah, it doesn't have and they live me plain and blank. But what do I expect right? The character did what he should have done and it's okay. I've enjoyed the movie. ~

Jessie Pierce: You know what I would've done if I was smart enough to build a time machine? I would've gone back in time to meet you sooner.
