It was a poorly edited film.
From all accounts that I've read, this is what killed it. Warner Bros. weren't happy with anything, because, corporate. So instead of letting the director make a great film, they commercialized it to death. It had promise, and I still plan to see it, if only to surmise what it could have been.
They bent the movie over, corporate F'ed the life out of it, and sprayed marketing dollars all over its back. Don't reward that behavior with your money.
These arguments don't make my "7 is the new XP" argument any less true. The reason MS has been so aggressive (like it or not, that's not the bit I'm debating here) with 10 is to reduce the possibility of another XP situation, even though it's already beginning.
This is in part true, because Windows 8 was a disaster (like Vista)
To me the bigger part of it is the browser. Microsoft needs Edge to succeed. IE is a dinosaur that does nothing but make Microsoft look bad. Honestly with the November updates Edge has gone from being wonky to being a stellar performer. It's fast, supports modern standards, and it has some neat features that make it a great browser for both desktop and touch platforms, plus the mindshare advertising revenue Microsoft can drive through it if they can convince people that their stock browser is all you need.
