Exactly… when they turn that battle ship sideways and let those 16” guns go is my favorite!

The problem with Battleship is that it's ALMOST a good movie.

Good action, shit blowing up everywhere.

But, the dumb is just so cringey.

Future generations aren't going to study this work of art.  Academics won't debate what the deeper meaning was.

However, it's 90 minutes of hot women, big kabooms, huge naval vessels rolling out to Thunderstruck, & stolen burritos.   Something for everyone.

Best line of the movie … otherwise, not a good movie, but if you can suspend reality for a couple of hours, it can pass the time.

It's a fun movie if you let it be. What's not to love about 16" guns killing aliens?

Watch the USS Missouri go from museum ship to fully operational, steaming out, fully fueled, loaded with 16" shells in 5 minutes.  For this fantasy piece they might as well as used the CIWS, harpoons, 5" guns, and Tomahawks like they had right up until 1991.

We LOVED this movie, I almost made a thread about it.

Suspend reality and enjoy!!!

Fun popcorn movie….enjoy!

Also, the director Peter Berg is a fan of the military and so they were treated very respectfully.

ETA:  Peter Berg is very controversial.  
From Wikipedia:

“On July 15, 2015, Berg criticized ESPN's decision to honor Caitlyn Jenner with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award with an Instagram post in which he shared a Facebook photo of Army veteran Gregory D. Gadson (a double amputee who played a role in Berg’s Battleship film) alongside one of Jenner. It said: “One Man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs. Guess which Man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the ‘Arthur Ashe Courage Award’ by ESPN?” Along with the shared post, Berg commented, "Yup."[25]

After Berg received significant criticism for the post, he later clarified his remarks, saying he had the utmost respect for Jenner and transgender individuals; however, he released another photo with statistics on veteran suicide, stating, “I also believe that we don’t give enough attention to our courageous returning war veterans, many of whom have sacrificed their bodies and mental health for our country and our principals [sic] – principals that include the freedom to live the life you want to live without persecution or abuse.”[26]”

It was a cheesy summer scifi movie that was entertaining if you didn't think too hard.


Someone called it the Zoomer's Independence Day. As a Millennial, I'll take Bill Pullman and Vivica A Fox over Rhianna and that Lone Survivor dude any day. That movie was a national treasure!

Absolutely a fun movie. I'm also a big AC/DC fan so the music was a big bonus for me.
