So does that make Paranormal Activity and the slew of other found-footage movies the same as Chronicle too? I'm not saying that your opinion of the movie is wrong (I happen to disagree, I thought it was great), but just because they are shot the same way does not mean they are the same movie. I also disagree that's the lone reason Chronicle had an appeal to audiences. The appeal to me least was the way it approached the superhero concept. It put an original spin on the traditional superhero concept and I felt like it developed the characters nicely and I really like the drastic tonal shift it had in the second half. Judging on the reviews and overall audience reception, I would say I'm far from being alone on that one. Agree, disagree, That's just my 2 cents.
