Battleship: Cheesy but End-Of-The-World Fun

Director: Peter Berg Screenplay: Erich Hoeber, search Jon Hoeber Release Date: May 18, doctor 2012 Actors: Taylor Kitsch, read more Alexander Skarsgård, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna and Liam Neeson Unfortunately for Taylor Kitsch, it hasn’t been a very good year in terms of film success. With the flop of John Carter, I’m not sure Disney wants to hire Taylor Kitsch for another movie any time soon, but viewers are given another chance to give Taylor a try by one of this summer’s earlier blockbuster movie “Battleship”. I’ve been asked whether or not it is based on the board game, and well, the answer is “yes”. Having been out for a month (or so?) in other parts of the world, I’m sure there are other reviews, but I’ll add another one to the bunch. “Battleship” is not going to win any awards, but if you don’t expect anything more than popcorn fare, spectacular theatrics and a cheesy script, “Battleship” is for you.

With such a large cast, it would have been impossible to make a terrific movie (in the same vein as so many other small storyline movies with a huge cast like “Happy Valentine’s Day”, “New Year’s Eve”, etc.). Based loosely on the book of the same name, “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” follows five couples that deal with pregnancy and having children differently. First, there is Jennifer Lopez’ character of Holly and her husband Sam who struggled to have children and are now trying to adopt. Meet Elizabeth Banks’s character Wendy, who owns a baby store and knows all things babies and about pregnancy. Her husband Gary and her have been trying to have a baby for a long time (2 years) […]

Wow, I have visitors!

Well, ed a long long time ago 🙂 I’ve decided to resurrect this from the dead, despite many people not visiting the site (though that really wasn’t my enjoyment) – it was writing those reviews. I’ve seen so many films in the past year that I felt deserved a review and wasn’t. So here I am, trying again to write up those film reviews that do take a while, but is satisfying once finished 🙂 Thanks for all of those who visited. Let’s see how my track record will be…
