Project X (2011)

4
84

Project X follows a group of teenagers who document a crazy house party.


Right now, the producers are keeping a real tight lid on the story. Right now, the main thing I know about the story is that it’s told from the first person point of view of various characters. Whether that means you see literally through their eyes, or they’re holding the camera like Cloverfield. I don’t know.

Trailer

No trailer yet.

The Scoop

Outside of a documentary called A, director Nima Nourizadeh doesn’t seem to have any experience behind the camera, but writer Michael Bacall did work on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and the other writer Matt Drake worked on… an episode of Spin City. And some movie called Tully. Don’t know about that one.

Who’s It For?

Interesting Fact

There was an 80’s film called Project X, starring Matthew Broderick as a military inductee tasked with looking after some monkeys who know sign language. Yaddi Yadda yadda, they’re being mistreated, and he saves them. This film is likely not a remake.

What’s Good About It?

Good high school comedies about parties going awry are usually pretty solid. Some are even classics, like Porky’s. Hell, if not for the bajillion sequels, American Pie might have been considered a classic.

But it’s not.

If Project X can have some of that magic, it might turn out pretty good.

What’s Bad About It?

I want to know more, specifically about the camera, as to whether or not the film will be through the character’s eyes or if they’re holding the camera. And a trailer would be nice to see the tone.

Our Clever Prediction

Too early to say. If there’s some magic, it could make a ton of money. No magic on the other hand…

No money.

    I found the movie funny at times (saw the screening as well) but I found myself extremely stressed out during the super long party scene. It was like 2/3 of the movie. It seemed like a Red Asphalt (the video they show u in drivers ed) of partying like “why you shouldn’t party.) It was really confusing because some parts were like OH NO HES GONNA DIE and some kids are gonna overdose and stuff but then the next minute there was some dumb joke. The handheld camera pov made it seem like a reality show or something so it made the movie less funny and more real during the party scenes like I believed it when they put a midget in the oven and turned it on (because of how it was shot). Very odd movie. Felt like 2 different movies/movie styles in one. That’s just my opinion. I’m sure if they shot it more theatrically it would have felt more like a movie and not real but who knows maybe they were going for that.

    You look so cute in your avatar.
