"Everyone's favorite part of playing Battleship is the alien robots. Hollywood knows this. Let's explore what other treasures viewing audiences might enjoy if they gave the big-budget "explosions and supermodel butt close-ups" treatment to Jenga, Chinese Checkers, and more.":

I remember all of the jokes when some idiot decided to make a movie out of some stupid pirate ride at Disney, too.

Yes, but that is very much based on previous films.

Yes, but that is very much based on Money Island, since the script for the animated adaptation was used as a basis for Pirates of the Caribbean.

Fixed.

FTFY again. Also, regarding the article - I love how often people make the "What's next? A Monopoly movie?" joke. None of them are brazen enough to suggest that Ridley Scott should direct, though....

My impression is is that hollywood is catching on to some very important things in the post baby boomer era.

1. Nerds from gen x and younger are the only ones with money
2. nerds like to play games
3. they simply do not know WHAT games and are going on what is in the big stores.

hence battleship.
they are trying they just need to be nudged in teh right direction. The scyfy channel on the other hand seems to have a better finger on the pulse with the number of hp lovecraft stories turned movies and cheesy zombie movies...grins...
If they pay even the slightest bit of attention to wil wheaton they might start making movies about the right kind of games.
