After watching Battleship, I wasn’t blown away like I thought I would be. I enjoyed playing Battleship in my younger years, so when I saw the trailer for this movie, I kind of wanted to see how they were going to pull this one of, they didn’t. Some of the actors/actresses didn’t deliver well, I was left disappointed, and sort of craving for more.
The battle for Earth begins at sea in this epic action-adventure starring Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, Alexander Skarsg†rd and Brooklyn Decker. An international naval coalition becomes the world’s last hope for survival as they engage a hostile alien force of unimaginable strength. Ripping across sea, sky and land, Battleship is “a big bold blast” (MSN Movies), packed with spectacular visual effects and explosive action. (Amazon)

Four interconnected and diverse friends from a pick-up basketball league have their love lives shaken-up after the women they are pursuing buy Steve Harvey’s book and start taking his advice to heart. For years women have been asking other women for advice when no one but another man can tell them how to find and keep a man. When the band of brothers find out that they have been betrayed by one of their own, they conspire to use the book’s teachings to turn the tables. It’s only when the truth is told by all parties that the couples finally get together for true love. (Amazon)
