LOL, that 90% score was just a TAD boosted by the absolutely INSANE audio/video scores coupled with a solid set of extras. While the film isn't exactly the next Citizen Kane as I said, it's most DEFINITELY worth it just for the eye/ear candy
I am all over this... I'm imagining this to be an Independence Day type of flick?

I have a few buddies that haven't watched a movie in my cave... I'm guessing this is a good one to do that with?

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

Thanks for the review Mike
I watched it last week and your review and suggestions are right on the money,
i.e. put your brain to off and enjoy the video and the sound.

Sure the movie does not make sense at times, like they only fire at ships that shoot at them, they should have cleaned up every ships that where inside their protected area...

but as you said "trun your brain off and enjoy"

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

Thanks for the review Mike!

I will have to get the movie for two reasons - sounds to be a great HT-type workout flick as well as I have never seen this many replies so fast to a review!

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

I watched this movie last night and WOW!!! talk about in your face sound!! I found myself having to keep turning the volume down for fear of blowing by speakers!!
In the end I found myself just listening the sound effects and not even concentrating on the movie..
As everyone has said, you have to leave your brain at the door, otherwise you'll just pick it to bits..
Just a fun sci-fi movie with great sound and image..

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

You know I would have never thought to get this movie. When it came to the theater everybody was saying how bad it was. But, here, when reading everybody's comments, it has changed my opinion and I will have to rent it. I will have to give this movie a second chance and check the sound as mentioned above and take the movie aspect with the grain of salt. lol

Thanks for all the comments and the review.
