Based on the classic Hasbro combat game, Battleship is the tale of an intercontinental squadron of vessels who come in contact with an alien fleet while on Naval war games exercise.
An intense battle is fought on sea, land and air. Starring Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brookly Decker, Rihanna and Liam Neeson. Directed by Peter Berg.
If you were a fan of playing the game, then you will appreciate action-packed premise of the film.
How the leap is made from the board game to the silver screen is simply incredible.
Hit the theater for a matinee... STAT!
The Abyss (1989)
Virgil "Bud" Brigman (Ed Harris) and his estranged wife Lindsey Brigman (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) are in charge of a privately owned experimental underwater oil platform commandeered by Navy SEAL team led by Lt. Coffey (Michael Biehn) to locate an American sinking submarine.
As the crew set out on their operation, they detect and determine that they are not alone in the abyss. Directed by James Cameron.
The legendary Cameron has directed the two highest-grossing films in history, Titanic and Avatar at $2.16 billion and $2.78 billion proportionately.
To say that this guy knows how to make a movie is like saying Babe Ruth knew how to hit a baseball.
Justification to watch or re-watch The Abyss is to see the cinematic metamorphosis of this creative genius at work.
