When the team travels back in time to change Quinn's outcome in the chemistry presentation they have to move Quinn's "past-self" out of the way. Which makes David's time travel attempt to kiss Jessie not possible since he would have to get rid of himself in that time line, in that exact moment and then somehow remember it. See more »

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.
