Project X (1987) vs. Project X (2012)

Now Hollywood is Recycling Movie Titles

These two films are nothing alike and as far as I know have no real connection other than the fact that they share the same title. Project X (1987) is a film centered on the Air Force using chimps for inhumane experiments. Project X (1987) is actually very reminiscent of what happens to the apes in the latest remake of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I watched it a million times as a kid and HBO is currently running it again; I’m sure Project X (2012) being released today has something to do with that.

Project X (2012) is about teenagers throwing a party to make a name for themselves. The premise seems to be something that is all too true in popular media; do something stupid and receive instant fame. In essence it seems that the humans in Project X (2012) are offering themselves up as the experiment. I have no intentions of buying a ticket to see Project X (2012), so if you see it and want your review to receive some exposure submit it to DangerousLee.Biz today!
