Default Battle : Los Angeles

Watched this movie about a half-hour ago and I have to say it was really good. I was expecting Marine Recruiters to be waiting outside of the theater

I liked the fact that the aliens tech was fueled on water but it didn't show any indication that the water did anything. Like, I expected their weaponry to have some sort of water-like effect or something but it didn't.

The way the aliens looked was kind of weird because the metal the aliens used looked like something you would see on earth. I'm not saying its something we humans would make but it looked like man-made metallic material.

Overall a great movie.

My friends and I thought the same thing.

I liked how both the Marines and the aliens used legitimate tactics like over watch, advancement by fire, etc. The Marines, for the most part, acted like real Marines.

Dude... that movie was fucken legit. Its the one movie where the actors act like and actually dress like real Marines. They fricken went there and owned bitches. Killen robotic babies and skull fucking there robot heads! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Die bitches! Die!

I rate this movie a good 8.5 out of 10. Probably the best alien type movie in the last decade. I would go as far as two decades.

Haha glad you liked it.

And at Captain galus, I guess you make a point there but still it would have been cool to have more in depth detail with the water.

I loved the movie as well although I will admit it wasn't what I expected. I honestly thought it was going to be more like Independence Day, you know, corny and goofy with every intention of being so. I was not expecting to see a more realistic movie and as a consequence I was seriously impressed. My son and I both loved it but the wife didn't like it at all. Too much of a guy flick for her lol.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
