Goofy, clever, and endearing enough to be worth your time.

It hardly entertains... and you will quickly forget it. Anyway, at least it doesn't offend. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 9, 2020
Has a catchy, high-concept premise... But it is the horribly botched found footage aspects that doom Project Almanac.
July 30, 2019
Project Almanac feels like a cautionary tale of what happens when creators make literally every wrong decision.
Full Review | Original Score: F
May 16, 2019
Ultimately forgettable despite some novel ideas, Project Almanac loses a point for also being a found-footage movie; a stupid gimmick that only adds the risk of causing a migraine.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 4, 2019
Project Almanac's exuberance for the scientific aspect of time travel, unique use of handheld camerawork, and allusion to allegorical decisions makes for a fun watch, even if the overwhelming teen feel to the film detracts from being taken too seriously.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 23, 2019
Writer Andrew Deutschman has crafted a smart and very self-aware film that makes plenty of references to other movies in the genre.

November 9, 2018
PA morphs into teen soap opera territory and sinks the minimal sci-fi flavoring it had for a nonsensical diversion punctuated by the aforementioned shoddy camera fluctuation and lack of time-traveling zest beyond small-time incidental dilemmas
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 24, 2018
Some decent acting cannot save the awful plot and gimmicky direction of Project Almanac. Save yourself some time and relive Back To the Future some more.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Project Almanac just wants to say "This stuff has already been done before, so there's no point in trying to get it right."
January 30, 2018
As a story, as an experience, it's one of the most underrated movies of the last few years. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 5, 2017
It's a far better teen movie than sci-fi film, but thanks to its affable cast, I wasn't wishing for a magical do-over to have those two hours back.
April 25, 2017
Project Almanac is a good entertainment, suitable for a teen movie or another proposal that uses the found footage format. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 6.9/10
January 21, 2016
The genre dramatizes the identity formation that goes on during the digital technology-glutted adolescent years, which are filled with screens and captured images, whether from smartphones, cameras, vlogging, or pictures on social media.
November 5, 2015
Maybe every time-travel movie can't use a souped-up DeLorean, but Project Almanac may leave you wanting to pull out your old copy of Back to the Future instead.
June 16, 2015
Yet another chance to berate the found-footage genre, and I'm going to take it.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
May 30, 2015
Let's be honest -- no gimmick in cinema past, present or future could make this tripe palatable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 25, 2015
This MTV Films-backed teen-romance for the GoPro-in-ADHD generation actually makes a music-fest a (creaky) plot-hinge. It's part wanna-be Primer, part energy-drink-hangover-experience.
April 5, 2015
Aside from the last 20 minutes or so, this is a film with zero tension.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
March 26, 2015
...for a self-aware time travel flick, it does hit all the right pop-culture tropes and has fun with the idea.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4.0
