Battleship

Like many guys my age I grew up playing the Iconic Board game: Battleship.

It was one of my favorite games growing up and I have many fond memories of playing it with my Younger brother, cousins, and friends so when I heard that they were making a movie out of a board game that sits so near and dear to my heart I automatically feared for the worst. You see Hollywood has a tendency of messing with my childhood. and messing up some of the stuff I grew up with and love very much (Dragonball Z, The Green Lantern, Avatar the last Airbender). so I guess it makes sense right?

So on Sunday during the Superbowl a 60 second trailer for Battleship aired.
at first glance it looks like a Transformers movie...
Really, nothing in this Movie (so far) Resembles the board game. it actually looks like this could have been from a rejected Transformers script.

There are Alien Robots (I don't remember these from the game), a lot of explosions, and Rihanna...
Really? Rihanna? I have no idea why they would cast Rihanna in anything...

The only good thing about this Movie is the always Awesome Liam Neeson... but that's about it...
Oh and the guy who played Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine is in it too...

In all fairness if it didn't have the Battleship name I'd probably have different feelings towards this movie, It could have been good enough for me to go out of my way to see this... I'll probably wait until it comes out on DVD and Rent. it.


Well here's the trailer in case you wanted to see it.
