Seen the trailer, looked quite good so I'm watching this tonight. Let's hope it's not a dismal failure like Runner Runner.

i did not like this. Stopped it early, again I was fooled by the trailers thinking this will be good but another let down for me. Runner Runner was better than this and that movie was horrible as well. frown.gif

Yeah, I "oinked" this one too.
Seems to be aimed at young audience, which I didn't realize going in....

Glad we are all in agreement on this one. This movie was F'ing terrible. Felt like I was watching some teenage soap opera aimed toward teenage girls. I ended up fast forwarding through some of it just to try and get to the ELF LFE (as reported on data-bass) which was my main motivation for renting and even that was only partly satisfying.

You know your trouble when the previews just before watching the movie has one of those teenage girl dance movies on, not a good sign for the film your about to watch.

No doubt! That is a pretty big red flag!

Don't worry Frank, you did not miss much. Most of the LFE was in the last part of the film as I remember and while it certainly was nice and unfiltered, it was nothing memorable IMO. You made the right choice! tongue.gif

Ok! I'm guilty as charged for falling for the previews on this one as well, even the name sounded cool and garnered a Hmm! rolleyes.gif and Toe I too saw the bass report after the fact , but while watching I said " wonder how low this one got" great bass towards the end but it did nothing to save this one.

No doubt. There are limits to my love of the low end! tongue.gif
