Was going to continue my Ridley Scott Marathon
but noooo, I had to watch this lame-ass "movie":Battleship
This movie made Transformers 3 look good. The aliens' motives were never explained, I think I heard the line "What/What the hell/The hell is that?" about thrice per minute, the sailors were surprisingly chill with fucking extraterrestrials
blowing the shit out of their ships, the lead actor looks and acted like a douche, rendering him completely unlikeable, Neeson seemed high, Rihanna was annoying, why the hell would they put a drunk, poor loser like the main character as second in command for a huge ship like that, and the film shamelessly used a great song (Fortunate Son) as the end credits.
There were so many 'splosions that they were no longer impressive (they never were, but eventually they don't even make you bat an eye), the fake long takes did not make it "cool", what the FUCK was wrong with that random-ass scene where he breaks into a gas station for a burrito, set to The Pink Panther for fuck's sake.
One of the worst movies I've ever seen, really.
There was also a horrifyingly surprising amount of racism against Asians in it, seriously. The director seemed to enjoy including Asian jokes (Ka ni chi wa? Seriously?), constant "It's the Koreans/Chinese, I know it!" accusations, glorified bias against Asian soldiers, and the 9/11-ish attack on Hong Kong, which lasted wayyy longer than it should have. Really, out of all the cities being attacked, two minutes were spent seeing a bunch of Asians get blown sky high, what the hell.
