Next time your cleaning out your closet and you happen upon some old forgotten toys, assume that anyone of them could be the next big-budget film out of Hollywood. From GI Joe, to Transformers all are fair-game.

So with that in mind, maybe it’s not so strange to go from a kids game of calling out numbers hoping to guess the location of you friends battleship to a film carrying a Budget of $200,000,000. The story is one where A fleet of battleships go up against a mysterious group of warrior ships from some unknown source with an unclear objective. The most interesting question is whether at any point someone recites the line,”Hey, you sunk my battleship”

Or if you want something a bit more “Classic” watch the film below.
Rotten Tomatoes calls it “A technical masterpiece, Battleship Potemkin is Soviet cinema at its finest, and its montage editing techniques remain influential to this day.”

Directed By: Sergei M. Eisenstein and Written By: Nina Agadzhanova it opened in Theaters: Dec 24, 1925
This is a true Classic. The scene of the “Odessa Steps” is often considered the most famous sequence ever filmed.

Well now after watching Battleship (On Demand) I have to say that despite my low expectations, this film was substantially worse than I expected. Oh sure, with tens of millions of dollars to spend, they could generate some cool CG effects; but no amount of knowledge can save what was a God-Awful script.

About Lane J. Lubell
When I began this site, I was a student at "The Latin School of Chicago, and it consumed the majority of my waking hours, the remaining time was split between, making movies, hanging with friends, and spending time with family. Toss in eating and a few hours of sleep; and there was not all that much time left over. I provided that explanation to lower expectation of daily posts, and to point out that simply because I did not review a given film does not mean I did not find it worthy; more likely, homework took precedence. I am now attending Northwestern University where I'm enrolled in RTVF (Radio, Television, Video and Film) department. While I was very happy at Latin, and still go back to see each theater performance; I'm glad to be done with AP Calculus, and love that I get to take a larger percentage of classes focusing on literature, philosophy ,writing and film. I'm still just getting my feet wet here, but I have met some people that share my love of film and theater and we are already planing on some collaborations. Who knows, maybe I could even get a few of them to post a review here on CinemaShadow.com . I made this site not to "Talk to people" about films; but to 'Talk with People" about films. To that end; I would love to have others post comments, list their favorite movies, recommend films, new and old, that you think are worth watching.
