It’s time for this again. I’ve decided you’re all wrong about some other things that you are wrong about. Prepare to be enlightened.
The movie Battleship. Lately I’ve seen some major internet shade thrown at one of Nick and I’s favorite movies.
You know, that movie that is based off of the popular game, where you try to blow up the naval fleet of your friend?
Battleship, the movie, stars Tim Riggins, Landry, Liam Neeson, and Brooklyn Decker’s boobs.
You call me any time LT. Any damn time.
You wear those coveralls sailor.
The premise of the movie is that a Naval Destroyer, the Navy’s best and most weaponized ship, is stuck in a force field off the coast of Hawaii, with aliens. Hostile aliens, which are the worst kind. And the WORST part is that the Captain of the ship is killed by aliens and the most senior officer left is LT Tim Riggins, who is a hot head with something to prove. Helped by Petty Officer Rihanna and Boatswain Mate Todd, they defeat the aliens (obvs) and the LT wins the affection and approval of Admiral Hard Ass (that’s Liam Neeson) for his daughter’s hand.
This movie has everything. Naval warfare, patriotism, an actual Battleship, Naval puns you’ll never understand until your husband who was aboard an actual Naval Destroyer explains them to you, all the best characters from Friday Night Lights, Hawaii, action, adventure, wounded veterans kicking alien butt, and so much more. Oh, and I forgot to mention, Nick went out on a brief deployment with the ship in this movie, the USS John Paul Jones, whose officers were also responsible for this amazing viral video. (Liberal F bombs, you’ve been warned)
Some people said, “This movie is far fetched!” Uhhh, no duh. But it’s really fun. So fun!! It’s about time the Navy got to fight the aliens and not just the Marine Corps and the Army.
Anyway, if you’re in the mood for a movie that is FANTASTIC, then watch Battleship. And if you don’t like it?
