On "Paranormal Activity"

From The Dispatch:
The nighttime scenes as seen through the unblinking eye of the video camera are chillingly effective. The problem is that everything in between is incredibly dull. Watching "Paranormal Activity" is like being trapped in a closet with the world's most irritating yuppies. The characters are bland and annoying, and their banter is grating and obnoxious. I found myself longing for the next haunting scene but having to sit through endless scenes of ridiculous bickering.

Strange, the bickering didn't bother me all that much - which I say is strange, because that's usually one of my biggest turn-offs in a movie.

For me the freaky factor of this film's night time scenes was well worth having to sit through the squabbles.
