Well, till the third franchise the movie was going on just fine with the continuity, and it certainly matched with the events occurring in the plot. But in this fourth one, the perspective is changed to a completely new family and all the build up seems pretty lost and that too infected with a lousy climax. The only thing which I found distinct in this movie was the use of Laptop webcams in place of the traditional video cams being set in the prequels.
No doubt, Reservoir Dogs wins hands down, Tarantino's brilliant directorial debut entry into hollywood. The story and plot is really simple, but what makes it totally incredible is the narrative style and characterization diving into each of the individuals with a spectacular tension driven climax.
This movie digs more into the childhood of the main characters and the spooky incidents which happened to them in the past. The movie starts with a set of VHS tapes being found recorded back in 1988, but my question is will those tapes last that many years as in 2006! lol.
Paranormal Activity 2 sure is successful in building up the storyline in the form of a sequel or a prequel you may call, bringing up more characters into the scene and pretty much delivers the same experience like before.
