Throw your money away instead of buying: Chronicle- From my review… “There’s very little to like about Chronicle; the acting is a bad joke, the special effects are laughable, and the story (if you can call it that) is on par with a supernatural episode of HBO’s Lifestories: Families in Crisis. Am I being a bit rough on Chronicle? I don’t think so, I think this genre has gone to the well a few too many times and it’s almost dried up. There wasn’t much of a film here to start with and when you add layer upon layer of shit you end up with a mess like Chronicle which is nothing more than a film about narcissistic teens with superpowers and poor decision making skills. I have faith that you can make better decisions than they did… avoid this piece of shit.”
