Battleship WTF?

Couldn't have said it better myself. At first I thought I was watching some lackluster Transformers knockoff, then the title came up.

I wanted to hear the immortal line - "You sunk my battleship!". It's a bad sign that the movie doesn't include it. Why use the title without the line? Why not just call your movie something else. It could be good. This is the kind of movie I will watch several times when it comes on the satellite. The number of times I have watched similarly themed 'Starship Troopers' proves that.

Battleship? Why not movies based on old board games?

I heard they were making this big blockbuster movie out of "Barrel Full of Monkays" but at the last minute they changed the title...


...to RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.

"Transformers spin-off" crossed my mind too. Liam Neeson doesn't disappoint, though.

I noticed that the beam seemed to create a force field shell, probably to contain the combatants to a defined area. I think the aliens are conducting a combat test with live ammo as a prelude to an all-out invasion. Welcome to another edition of Thunderdome.

Kal - I wanted to hear the line too, just to let us know they we're embracing the silliness.

M.D. - Not to mention the big blockbuster movie they're making out of "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots" called "Real Steel".

Hey now tengeckoes, don't be dissin' the THUNDERDOME. It's an eligant solution to so many of today's problems. Rush Limbaugh and Bill Maher to the death. Boener and Obama chained together armed only with daggers. The combinations are endless. Televise the matches, sell action figures, hats and tshirts and you have an idea that is awesome but no one has the guts to try it.

No dissing intended - just pointing out the similarity of circumstances. Two men enter, one man leaves. Or in this case, species.
