  • Apollo 18 2011

    ★½ Watched 20 Apr, 2014

    I knew full well what I was getting into by watching this. I've had Apollo 18 on my watchlist for almost 3 years and in that time I've heard all the terrible things written/said about it. Given its short runtime I was able to cram it in today and forge on ahead, despite its poor reception.

    Found footage films are not my favorite. From what I can recall, End of Watch is the only one that I do like, and…

    Whoa. That was the best thriller I've seen in a long time. I can't even remember a film that "had me thrilled" more than this one; I was literally clenched for 90%+ of this film.

    Unfortunately, when I arrived to the theater someone was in the seat that I had bought for myself so I just snagged another. But then, of course, the rightful owner of that seat came. By this point, George Clooney was regaling the audience with his…
