Default Battleship.

Battleship is an interesting movie. While it's not on the same level as Rocky or Scarface it does have it's charm. It's a sci fi movie where low tech humans face off against aliens. There's plenty of action and lots of art of war references.

I watch movies to be entertained, Battleship certainly entertained me. I'll defiantly watch it again when it comes out on DVD mostly due to the fact that I am on a limited income.

Was it worth $25? Yes it was.

Seems like your friend is pro xeno. I'll be sure to inform the inquisition.

Well said... xenolover! It is clearly mankind's destiny to wipe out any alien presence found for the sake of the species.

Didn't read the above review yet, but it was an awful movie that made absolutely no sense. I am guessing from the pro-xeno comment that the review agrees with me.

Picture this:

Humans: Aliens, please come visit.

Aliens: Okay, hold on.

A little while later....

Humans: Oh, Crap.... ALIENS!!! WE'RE GOING TO DIE!!!!!

Aliens: Holy shit!!!!! Look at all the garbage!!!! OH NO!!! THERE GOES THE TRANSLATOR SHIP!!!!!

Humans: Let's intimidate the aliens with out boat horns.

Aliens: They are communicating, let's respond.

Humans: Theirs is louder than ours. Bastards. Fine. Let's see if our guns are bigger. Shoot.

Aliens: Guess we need to defend ourselves.

Humans: We getting destroyed. Stop shooting and rescue people. (derp derp derp)

Aliens: Ah... they have finally come to their senses.... hold fire.

Humans: Okay, we have rescued people. ATTTACK!

Aliens: Fine. Dumbasses. You know, on our planet, this is called self-defense.

Humans: We finally wiped them out. Medals and blonde women for everyone.

UNSEEN EPILOGUE:

Aliens: Why hasn't communications team alpha reported in from the planet that contacted us? Send in communications team bravo with a fleet of heavy destroyers as protection. Obviously the fighter wing was not sufficient.

BATTLESHIP 2: ARMAGEDDOM

Humans: WhYYYYYYYYYYYY?????? WHAT DID WE DO TO DESERVE THIS??????

lol, yeah it would seem that way, but I agree that it kinda has a poor look on us attacking with no reason.

Watch District 9, once again humans put aliens in poor living conditions. We capture them to test on them, we kill them.

Watch Starship troopers, at least we attacked the Bugs (aliens) because they attacked us first, or alien, we kill them because they killed us first.

Older movies show humans as being defencive attacking only when we first have been attacked, but all the new movies coming out show us as xenophobic turds who shoot first and ask questions later.
