I read an article on it. They said the reason behind it is because of the camera movement, the way it bounced and moved around. In a theater the screen, combined with the darkness is enough to take up your whole field of vision, adding the the illusion that you are moving. So your brain thinks that you're moving, because it that.

The impact is lost on the small screen, because you only see a small area, and it doesn't take up your field of vision in the same way.

Quote:
For some, like Mangesh Hattikudur, 20, the jittery camera was enough to make him feel wretched after a recent screening. Looking pallid and suffering from a headache, he stood outside a few minutes after the show. "The hand-held camera stuff made me sick," he said, clutching his stomach. He did not, however, actually hurl, he reported. His friends were no doubt grateful for that.

"What happens is the camera and the brain mismatch messages," said John Risey, a clinical audiologist at Tulane University Hospital and Clinic in New Orleans. "Because you are seated and you are still, your brain gets wrong information that you are in motion." (Risey has not seen the movie – yet.)

The brain then sets off those woozy, seasicky symptoms. Because movie screens are so large, your entire field of vision is involved and that makes your body feel as if it's in motion, Risey explained. A computer screen or a television would not have the same effect.

I watched it for the first time today. I like this movie. I mean, it is probably my least favorite film by Mike Judge. The concept was a really great one, that seemed to not take off the way it could have. But I think that is kind of the point as well, comes across as lazy as the main character. It is dumb, as it is supposed to be.

I think it will take a few more views to really get into, but I will gladly watch it again.

Blair Witch Project didn't make me motion sick, but I've had more problems with that kind of thing as I've gotten older. Cloverfield fucking killed me. It seemed like a good movie but it was hard for me to tell because I spent about half of it with my eyes closed, sweating pouring off of me, feeling like I was going to throw up. Ever since then I've avoided seeing those kinds of movies in the theater. I have the same problem with first person shooter games as well.

It is the same thing with Paranomral Activity. You go to see the first film in the theaters once for the experience of the audience gasp when the scare happens and then you are done with the movie and all other sequels of it. I guess if you are interested a little in some of the back story but bleh. Not worth it imo.

Been on a horror kick lately. Decided to run through the 2013 top lists for horror movies.



World War Z

It's actually a pretty good movie. The problem I find with zombie flicks are the concepts tend to lack originality. Lucky for this movie, while this is the case it's made up by thrilling, berserk, ferocious zombies on speed that overrun towns in a matter of minutes. At times it was like "wait, what the hell just happened?" Kept me on the edge of my seat.

7/10

You bitches is crazy. The best found footage film is Trollhunter. Period. Respectful nod to Quarantine.

I was just going to mention Cloverfield. I don't really get motion sickness any more (and when I did it wasn't anything major) but that was some uneasy stuff.

Spent the last two days watching and processing Nymphomaniac parts 1 and 2 curtousy of Bob. Holy ****. This is one I'll be talking about for ages. I shouldn't have to tell you to see this, and I'm not going to say anything else about it except that I majorly enjoy Lars.
