    Ohh! I love that movie.

    There's a seafood restaurant 10 mins down the road from my place in FL called Starfish.and reminds me every time because it's where the lawyer meets with Finnegan and his father to tell them Finn gets to go live and be an artist in New York. The mansion where the old lady lives is the Ca d' Zan on Sarasota Bay and they made it to look all overgrown and run-down for the movie but it's really nice. They do lots of weddings there. . Fun fact Friday.

    I got back from seeing Battleship today. The best way I can describe it is Transformers being eaten and coming out the other end. Literally. The insanely detailed robots have been digested into insanely detailed yo-yos. And it appears the human side of things suffered the same fate as the robots. Where in the first Transformers, the human character development, while superficial, was surprisingly entertaining. We get the same thing with Battleship, minus the entertainment.

    As for the actual fx, they were great from a technical standpoint, but it's sad that ILM is the only visual fx facility that I know of that created, in addition to photorealistic dinosaurs dated back to 1993, digital shit -- first CG dewback shit in The Phantom Menace and now Transformer shit. Even sadder is when they actually put an effort in actually making shit look good. I really didn't have a problem with the shots of the alien at the end that received criticism, what I had a problem with were the constant and pointless slow-motion scenes, made worse with constantly changing camera speed in the same shot that I thought would only be in the trailers. There is one shot where an explosion is reversed for a second...what was the point?

    Perhaps the worst part of the movie is never getting to learn more about the aliens. None of the characters even get to even explore the alien ships on the inside, and we don't really get to understand their motivations. What wasted potential. And sadly, The Avengers is likely to water down Battleship's box office performance, which I estimate will do okay the first week, but will see an insanely drastic drop the following, so we probably won't get a sequel to ever find it out

    I didn't expect much from Battleship. I thought it was one of the stupidest ideas ever put on screen...but I hoped that it would somehow be made into something, perhaps entertaining, at least. Alas, Battleship is unimaginative even by Hollywood standards.

    These movies exist only to make a quick buck, because there are plenty of meat heads out there that will eat this up. I won't be seeing Battleship, because it looks like nothing more than an opportunity to flex some CGI biceps and show what state of the art action effects look like... Which is boring. I'd rather watch a 2:00 trailer. That's enough time to get my fix for those sorts of things.

    Oh and that was the other problem with the movie. Rihanna. A complete and utter rip-off of a far superior tomboy character in Aliens.

    Rihanna "acted" in it, or she was on the sound track? I don't think I've ever seen someone successfully dabble in Hollywood that first started in music.
