While I have always been more a fan of the written word, I still appreciate great movies and television shows. Throughout the years since the invention of the movie camera, there have been countless great movies made in Hollywood. The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, The Godfather, etc..Countless movies have sprung from the loins of Hollywood. Then they gave us this:
BattleShip: The Movie
Yeah, it’s based on the board game of the same name. This is just the next step in an endless procession of putrescence spewed from sewers of stupidity and further proof that Hollyweird has run out of ideas. I’d heard there was an Astroids movie, and now I feel I may have dismissed it prematurely.
This movie is in the same vein as the recent Real Steal, which I’ve not seen but judging from the previews, is a pretty clear attempt to turn Rock’em Sock’em Robots into a cash cow. It saddens me, because Hugh Jackman was a good actor.
And Battleship stars Liam Neeson, whom should have avoided this movie like Typhoid Mary.
