    This was actually kinda awesome and even better than I thought it might be. 

    So technically exciting! Bring zooms back in style! And I love how un-vain the framing is. Even in regular dialogue, where there aren't details needing to be hidden by the camera, the framing of faces and people aren’t exact or ultra-commercial in feel.

    This kinda wild. Haven’t seen much found footage but off the top of my head this would be the best. Reminded me of Lake Mungo in how it sets up some of its scares. Love that the world it’s set in is already mysteries and fantastical. The tv show with the psychic testing was cool. Didn’t fully grab my interest all the way through but I feel with a group of people it would be pretty fun.

    Random rewatch to get it out of the way and solidify my thoughts. Nearly impossible to take seriously. Feels like a tv show that wants to be a movie. Its twists either hold no emotion or can be seen a mile away so there’s no real mystery or unexpected drama. 

    I’m only familiar with the character through live action movies, particularly 89 and TDK, and I just don’t buy this characterization of the Joker. He’s so pathetic, passive, and unintelligent.…
