Paranormal Activity 3


Before we go any further with the run down of Paranormal Activity 3 ,lets understand first what Paranormal Activity really means.

To understand this term lets divide it into two.

Paranormal :- Paranormal is anything which is beyond the scope of science.anything which science can not explain is paranormal.a kind of experience which is tough to understand or something which suggest that this is not right or this should not happen, we can put this in Paranormal.

Activity :- Oh well as the name suggest an Activity ,something which is a do is an Activity.

Paranormal Activity :-  an activity which is not normal and can’t be define ,out of scope of science.

I saw Paranormal Activity 3 recently with my friends about couple of days ago.we were in the office and we decided that since its a festival time lets go out and watch a movie together.going on with the reputation of the previous Paranormal Activity movies we zeroed down to Paranormal Activity 3.so after an hour we were at the cinemax to watch this movie.

Oh well what to say about this film but we were kind of disappointed.all of my friends did not like the movie except me.i don’t say that it was a good movie but it was not bad either.it was some kind of average movie.average comparing to rest of the paranormal movies.

http://www.imdb.com rating is 6.5 to this movie

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1778304/

which is not bad for any movie ,its an average horror flick.

The Plot

Its very simple ” In 1988, young sisters Katie and Kristi befriend an invisible entity

which resides in their home.”

The story is set in 1988 , a family of four where two little girls live with their so called parents along with an unknown entity which troubles them every now and then with its activities.well , don’t really know what this thing is.but as you watch the movie you can easily figure it out that its a kid which the little girl name katie interacts with.she calls him Toby.film begins with normal camcorder recording as Dennis ( Christopher Nicholas Smith ) goes around the house recording his stuff.soon he realized that something is not going right in this house.he installs cameras to record at night ,if there is something which is causing problem.he records unusual activities taking place at night and shares it with his friend Randy Rosen ( Dustin Ingram ).Dennis happens to record more activities on camera and decides to share it with his wife Katie ( katie Featherston ). things take deadly turn later and they shifts to their mother home where things take unexpected turn and Dennis and Katie die.

One thing you notice about this movie is that there are chills and it does scares you at times.but as it looks like that the movie is building up to something it ends abruptly.

Why watch this movie ?

Its a horror flick and worth watching for once.it does have its share of scary moments.the setting is nice where you can actually feel the horror and silent surroundings.good acting performance by the two little girls.video and sound editing is spot on.good direction by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman.

Why not to watch this movie ?

Its an average horror movie.being this movie screened in india ,most of the scenes been deleted from the original version.so its been an edited movie which is screened in india.its not as good as the original.movie ends abruptly leaving question asking about what really happened.

 

 

 

 

Trailer on youtube is actually different and most of the scenes are not there in the movie.

All in all its an average horror movie with its shares of chill and thrill but still fails to scare you as much as the original did in the first place when it was released in 2007.

   

                                i give paranormal activity 2.5 out of 5.

when i saw this movie trailer on youtube i had absolutely no idea about Aaron ralston.i never heard about him ,i had not known him at all and had no idea of what had happen to him.

i saw the trailer where a guy goes on an adventure to Utah desert on his bike and his right hand  gets stuck under a rock.so this much what i got from the trailer.but since the movie was directed by one of my fav danny boyle i wanted to deep into this film.i also downloaded this film from the net and saw it.

after watching this film i searched Aaron Ralston on google and gained knowladge about him.

its indeed one if the best film i have seen so far ,indeed a story of human spirit ,triumph over the odds.this film inspires you in many ways but it also tells you that may b your are dieing but world moves on.

danny has done a great job in direction as he is been successful in portraying the story of aaron ralston on screen.james franco as aaron has again defines realism in acting.both danny and james had gone through the real aaron tapes when he was trapped under the rock.before displaying those to danny and james aaron had only shown those video’s to close friends and family.but i think it was a great move by james and danny by watching those video’s hand on.i guess its very important for a director and an actor to really feel from the heart and visualising in mind the real events as it took place.its very important for an actor ,director and writer to put themselves in the shoes of the subject to make it visible on screen.

after watching this film i must say that the writer,director and an actor 95% successed in what they were doing.i should not say 100% coz there were some visible mistakes indeed but we can over look those mistakes as every one is a human after all.

AR Rehman’s music again as always amazing and really gives u the feel of the scenes in the film.it will still not give u the complete feel of rehman’s compostion in the film but if u download the music online or buy an album you will realise how good the compositions are.

Rehman has been nominated for an oscar so as danny and james for there work in 127 hours.over all this film has been nominated for 6 oascars and i am not sure if its gona win in all 6 categories but it will surely win an oscar.

its a moving film ,which will keep you on the edge of your seat.its an inspiration ,a story of a man with no hope but who decided to make his own luck but making an effort.

one thing which i did nt like in this film is an arm amputation scene.

watch an arm amputation scene below

when i saw this scene on youtube i didnt like it.believe me i was expecting a lot from danny into this scene.its not up to my expectation though still good.some people fainted in the cinema halls as they saw this scene.but accourding to me there as little more margin of  some more gore,blood and realism in the scene.but anyways its still a disturbing scene.

over all a great film ,simple but strong subject ,a true story,well executed,well directed,outstanding music and yes an inspiration

my rating 4 out of 5.
