Trivia

One of David's friends can be heard talking about the sci-fi/action film Timecop (1994). Both "Timecop" and "Project Almanac" involve the year 2004 as well as traveling exactly 10 years into the past. Coincidentally, 2004 is ten years in the future in "Timecop" since it was made in 1994 and in "Project Almanac" 2004 is ten years in the past since 2014 was the year it was filmed. See more »

Goofs

When the group first discovers the schematics for the time machine, they incredulously spout a bunch of tech-terms contained within the documents trying to understand what the machine is used for. Two of the terms they read, back to back, are "Engine Pressure Ratio" and "Course Deviation Indicator," which are aviation terms (to do with turbine engine thrust and airway navigation, respectively); neither phrase seems to have anything to do with how the time machine works.

Great found footage
3 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Found footage movies are often pretty predictable and sketchy, but project almanac isn't. Unlike other movies of this genre, the pace is kinda slow, which is appropriate for the story. When you build a time travel machine, it is normal that it takes multiple attempts before it works. Even though sometimes you may wonder why the characters are still filming their journey, it's not disturbing enough to prevent you from focusing on the plot, which is a good thing. There's also a good love story and some funny moments, in addition to a breath taking last act. I'd compare it to the Canadian movie Chronicles.

Overall you'll have a great time watching this movie, even more if you are familiar with this genre.
