I realize I have decidedly put my foot, firmly in the ground in defiance to the use of shaky cam, found footage movies in Hollywood. Lazy filmmaking at its finest is all I have to say and frankly executives practically jizz themselves at the words “found footage” and “shaky cam”. I will admit that there are some exceptions to the rule with some incredibly novel concepts that yield some gold from the idea. V.H.S and Chronicle both ended up being really enjoyable flicks that otherwise wouldn’t have gotten made if it weren’t for the two aforementioned words that Hollywood loves. Today, no thanks to a trailer that got me fairly excited for something interesting, I give you the latest “found footage” movie that should be worth your time and that is The Bay.
