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.

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.
