Chronicle (2012)

One of the best found footage films concerns three friends who climb into a hole and are cursed/blessed with telekinesis as a result.How they go from small tricks to pranks, to darker things is the film.

Running a scant 80 minutes this is one of the few found footage films that you actually want to be longer. It's one of the few times where you actually feel that things are happening off screen that you want to see. In most cases with found footage films you desperately want things to stop. We're seeing way too much, we're seeing way more than we should or at the very least nothing we'd have wanted to see in the first place.

What I like about this film is that this is a story that we've all seen in the comics for years but never seen translated to the real world. How would people react to getting super powers? How would they really react? More so how would they react if they were damaged individuals. One of  our heroes is the sort of damaged people that in comics that over comes their damage to become a better person. What happen here is probably a hell of a lot closer to what would really happen....

Could I suggest that this is possibly one of the best super hero movie ever made?

This is how found footage films should be done.

One of the best films of the year.
