With 2008's "Cloverfield," J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves showed that the found footage aesthetic—comprised of shaky, you-are-there camerawork and rough cutting and usually relegated to hardcore horror films like the "Paranormal Activity" series and, of course, "The Blair Witch Project"—could also be employed to evoke moments of wide-eyed awe and wonder. Unfortunately, since then, the gee-whiz factor of found footage has been largely ignored, popping up only occasionally (in things like "District 9" or "Chronicle").

Death is a staple of Nicholas Sparks romances, and that’s as true as ever in his latest movie adaptation The Best of Me. This time, the Grim Reaper conveniently provides an excuse to bring two high school sweethearts back together. Rich girl Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) and wrong-side-of-the-tracks boy Dawson (James Marsden) haven’t seen each other in twenty years when they reunite at the funeral of a mutual friend. Sparks fly, but lots of obstacles stand in their way because there would be no movie otherwise.

Relativity Media Supporters of the “found footage” format say it’s more of a filmmaking tool than a tired shtick, but while that’s an arguable claim even they would have to agree that too many filmmakers simply don’t know how to use this particular tool. Instead it’s usually little more than a budgetary bonus that also nets a film an extra marketable factor.

Hachette Few films can boast that they came from WWE Studios, and also boast that they’re not roundly terrible in every way imaginable (although I remain cautiously optimistic about Untitled Flintstones WWE Movie and Jingle All the Way 2). Oculus is one of those films. And a heaping portion of credit for Oculus and its status as WWE Studios’ first film to not deserve a thorough suplexing goes to director Mike Flanagan. But the question remains: what is Flanagan to do now?
