There was a commercial during the Superbowl, "From the makers of Transformers." As in, Hasbro. Because Battleship: the Movie is HAPPENING. It is a BIG BUDGET SCI-FI ACTION FILM. There needs to be a geeklist made about movies based on boardgames. I would like to leave it in the hand of a more well-known member of BGG to kick it off in style (like Squash or WifWendell), but I will if it comes down to it. Because it needs to be addressed.

You thought of a GeekList....

If ever there was a sign that Hollywood was bereft of ideas then this is surely it. I say leave it to the rest of the world (or as they like to call us at the Oscar awards "foreign films") to make the quality movies.

I saw the title of the movie and was "WTF, really?" I would imagine if the concept was, lets say placed in the future about naval captains at war for some god forsaken reason, but when they throw in aliens in the mixture its like...meh. Now the movie seems sfx candy but the title should of been something different.

Is that all you came into this topic to say? That you saw it first?

Be silent. The internet is not a race.

Am I the only one who, when the ships started to transform, thought they were making room for giant red pegs?

From Wikipedia. "The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens' perspective, as well as the humans' so the audience knows exactly where the opponent's ships are."

Isn't this cheating?

I was shocked to discover that Micheal Bay didn't direct this. Also, kind of surprised that Mr. Neeson would agree to be a part of a film version of Battleship. I guess you gotta pay the bills though...

Reading your recent posts has been like dipping my bottom over and over into a bath of the silkiest oils and creams.

Liam Neeson is reprising his role as "actor who'll do anything for a fat paycheque".

If that means movies like Taken then he can carry on with my blessing.

I think Upwords will be more exciting.

This just looks plain awful. Then again aren't most movies that get marketed to prime time TV commercial slots?

A wounded solider climbs up the alien mothership towards its power core with a satchel of explosives in one hand. Upon reaching the power core he briefly remembers all of his fallen comrades, readies the satchel in his hand and says, "You sunk my battleship." He smashes the explosives into the power core causing a chain reaction that destroys all of the alien ships, but miraculously blows him safely into the water without further injuring him.

I hadn't heard of this movie before seeing the Super Bowl ad. This was my chain of thought as the trailer played.

"Are they really making another Transformers movie?"
"Are they really making another G.I. Joe movie?"
"Aren't battleships kind of obsolete in today's navy?"
"Oh, it's a Battleship movie. This looks awful."
"Wait, that's based on the game? The one with the red and white pegs?"

To make matters worse, the G.I. Joe trailer aired later that night. And, Transformers 4 is in the works.
