Project X
Project X (2012)
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

How could i give this movie a 9 out of 10? Well because it succeeds in exactly what it tries to do and creates a classic high school party movie. From the very first scene it starts out funny and keeps going. This is essentially a movie about a giant party. And the party itself is wild, with a great soundtrack. The movie just keeps escalating throughout getting crazier and crazier. While this may not be realistic, it does enough of a job to stay somewhat grounded while managing to escalate the antics of the teens to insane heights. The characters are hilarious and carry the movie. This is just pure entertainment, never slowing down for more then a minute or without throwing in a laugh. Again if the plot doesn't appeal to you then you wont like the movie, there's no way around it. that being said this will join the ranks of classic high school party movies. No this isnt a John Hughes movie, there's no lesson or even a real coming of age story, this is just a wild, funny party, and its entertaining for the full running time. For what it attempts to be Project X hits on every mark, and its hard not to remember this one.

I walked out of this movie, entertained but not blown away. It wasn't until the next day I actually appreciated the achievement that john carter was. Spectacular set pieces as action sequences and a story that keeps you engaged and waiting to see the outcome. Its unfortunate that this movie isn't going to make its money back because the scale of this movie is obvious from the first scene in space till the very end. It is well acted and the action scenes are fun to watch but it just had an overall feel of well, "epicness". I hope they make a follow up because this could be a great sci-fi franchise. As it stands, while not my favorite movie of the year I keep thinking back to it. The setting may not appeal to everyone but the quality production value and quality Disney brings is evident, and it comes together in an epic science fiction story that's truly different then anything else to have come out recently.
