Ummm, anyone noticed that this film was barely infocus, at any point in it's running time?
The trailers looked sharp enough for a romantic comedy -- are you certain it wasn't bad projection?

There just looked like there was something off, all the time, follow focus, or measurements.
I wasn't wowed with any crisp looking shots at once watching it.
and compared to Eight below, which was shot awesome(ly), I think somethingnew was out of focus.

Most likely cause is poor projection.
Another cause is a diffused style of photography, but diffusion is not the same thing as soft focus actually.
A third may be a 2K D.I. that was not done well, but if it looked soft enough to look like a mistake, probably it would be redone.
Again, some lenses are sharper than others, but if that were the case, often then it's the wide shots that look soft but the close-ups that look sharp enough. I sometimes notice with movies shot on Cooke S4's the occasionaly soft wide shot for some reason.
As for a comparison with "Eight Below", that's an outdoors adventure/action film so I'd hope it would be shot in a crisper style than a romantic comedy.
