    I'm so goddamn surprised at myself; I genuinely loved this by the end. I want to be unapologetic about it too.

    This film has more heart than I anticipated, and I particularly enjoy the slightly slower first half an hour or so of character building. True to Peter Berg's style of storytelling, very simple devices and short conversations are telling of each relationship, and you don't need that much to show layered kinship. I like how even minor characters like…

    Moderately fun on a movie night. Dreadful movie.

    During the opening scene of the movie I knew what was wrong with it - it had no respect for itself, it's protagonist or it's audience. There is no way this loser could of achieved the rank he held later in the movie. Actually with this breaking and entering and the property damage involved, he would of not even be allowed in the military. And if he was, never an officer. The lovable loser might work in a comedy but…

    Transformers meets Predator meets Under the Dome (with a dash of "city destruction porn" thrown in). The film's concept isn't intrinsically unappealing, but the awful performances by everyone but Liam Neeson don't do it any favors. It's hard to hate a film that goes out of its way to portray veterans as sympathetically as Battleship does, though; unfortunately, it's the only thing that works to save the movie from sinking completely.

    Man, I'm glad I got this via Netflix. I'd have been pretty angry at having to pay a discrete amount of money to see it. I also find myself wondering if any of the vets who appear to help out young heroic crew ever said aloud "You know how long it's going to be before this thing's boilers have a head of steam on them?"

    One of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. The characters are paper cutout parodies of military film characters. A lifeless waste of time.

    As fulfilling as a frozen chicken burrito.

    Even the board game was boring, so why make an action film out of this? Many people will put the blame on Taylor Kitsch, but he had nothing and no one to work with here. Even I realize that his character was a typical dude bro who brags while not having any real skill beyond flexing muscles. Read the script before you say yes. Liam Neeson was reduced to a sorry cameo appearance…

    As I had dental surgery earlier I wanted to watch something that required absolutely no focus or any other brain output.

    Battleship most certainly provided that....Bloody hell what a disaster Battleship is and no pun intended. Wooden acting, predictable plot with all the required cardboard characters. I tried to find one small glimmer of quality or something funny which would redeem Battleship somehow, but after a 2 hour watch I couldn't conclude but that this was a complete waste of my time.

    I rolled with Battleship. The guy from Taken chewed up the scenery. Tim Riggins saved the world. Rihanna didn't sing. The battleship game effects were kind of cool.

    30 Day Film Challenge Day Eighteen: A Film that Disappointed you the Most.

    Imagine this for me, if you will. An epic-looking naval sci-fi film, starring Liam "Taken" Neeson as a high-ranking Navy officer battling an alien invasion occurring worldwide, with their main mothership happening to be a massive alien space/water craft hybrid that threatens the world's security. He is supported by a cocky lower-ranking Naval officer and a few other people (including Rihanna) and together, they save the world.…
