Not a bad movie but bad cinematography


I thought the movie was pretty good. I don't hate the lead actor as many people seem to.

But the look of the film is terrible. Too dark, washed out colors and generally lacking in crisp detail. In places it looks like there is a layer of dust over the camera lens.

Yeah, I'm one of those crazy people who actually likes to see what is in the frame.

I liked it too. It's too bad it flopped so hard.

Apparently it had to do with the theater it was seen in. Only certain projectors could do it justice, like cinematographer intended. Read that some months back I think right here on moviechat.

The actor was fine. I hated the cinematography, too. It was too dark and bad design work in most scenes. The script was bad too which puts to rest the idea that Kasdan has any talent.
