“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Beneath the Mississippi (2008)
How bad is it? It's one of the worst-made films I've seen. Should you see it? God, no.
Those black bars come and go randomly.
This film starts with unreadable credits and goes downhill. The sound is so muddy that dialogue can't be heard and the film color is washed out, perhaps to give a gritty feel, but just makes it hard to watch. It tries to have found footage a la Blair Witch and fails. The plot has a town disappear and a camera crew searching with a girl whose family disappeared. As they progress, they disappear, one by one. Are they all going insane or is there some other solution to the mystery? You won't car.
