Chronicle ★★½

I love movies and I love Super hero / super power related movies. This movie left me with an unpleasant feeling which did not encourage me to want to watch it again. A Loner with a drunk father and a dying mother begins filming his life. Goes to a party with his cousin, where they and another boy drop down into a tunnel which has an alien crystal meteor thing. They all get super powers and explore them on camera. The Boys appear to form a friendship, but the power corrupts the main character which spirals the story into oblivion. I watch movies to escape reality, not to watch hyper realism with no positive message. If you are looking for a story of redemption and self discovery you can skip this movie.
