About J.C. Simpson

I am a high school student who is involved in film at my school in my broadcasting/video production class. Having met up-and-coming film affiliates in my area, I have come to know many great camera techniques, good writing skills and cinematographic specialties. I have taken courses and am in the process of becoming certified to use multiple different editing equipment/software engines and cameras. I am in the process of writing over 10 Screenplays and 3 Books, and look to hopefully enter into the world of cinema as a editor, scorer, cinematographer, writer and director.

    I disagree on both of your 2 worst movie choices. The knowing was definitely entertaining with an interesting plot, although the end could have been better. Paranormal activity was interesting and certainly not the worst of 2009!

    Paranormal Activity could have been great… but it wasn’t scary. It just wasn’t. I went to the movie a second time, high, and it STILL wasn’t scary. And Knowing? Alex Proyas is a great director… but this really sucked. They were aliens, everyone dies, and the kids are taken to their planet to frolic and live happily? What the hell?! Rose Byrne also sucked in this movie, which is awkward since she is usually good. Also, The best movies have changed: 1. AVATAR. 2. Moon.

  3. I have yet to see Moon or Inglorious
    But I will soon.
    I didn’t like the two movies you listed as worst but I don’t think they were the worst.

    I completely agree that Inglorious Basterds is one of the best of 2009. It has a little bit of everything, Action, Romance, Thriller.( well at least to me)
    I also agree with Knowing, though it had one of those “end of the world” sort of script, in my opinion those types of movies are a hit or miss. And Knowing was definetly a miss.
