The studio didn't do itself any favors by having a number of prerelease screenings all the way back in early Fall. The bashing via social media from some in those sneak peek showings caught on fire and really killed their own box office showing with such a negative presence circulating for a few months before it was even released.
I love the concept, and think the movie is shot beautifully, but it has some missing pieces, but overall I think it's worth at least a watch and I know I will watch it again at some point.
As for the soundtrack- I think it's spectacular, and one of the best that I instantly identified how much I liked even early into the movie.
Yeah, I don't listen to social media for reviews. Or anyone, really. I just don't have the energy for that.
