Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

I swore off a theater viewing of this one and opted for a home viewing and couldn't agree more on the review, well worth it.

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

Was going to rent this but luckily Redbox was out of it. Bought the BR on sale and I am better off. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Definitely a keeper and repeat for the Demo worthy scenes.

Rihanna has no business in a movie or show business in general. I really hope this is the last we see of her acting "abilities"

They were lucky that the Battleship was armed and ready; being that it was a museum of sorts.

I would have written less but I didn't have the time.

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

Saw this one last night.

While the movie probably won't be winning any awards, the audio and video were certainly worthy of a bit of my time.

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

I watched it the other night and the movie was better than I though but still not one to go out and buy IMO. Video and audio were good though.

I just finished watching it and didn't think it was half bad. Although I went into it not expecting much. The video and audio were spot on to the review. So that was a good treat. That's actually the reason I bought it.

Re: Battleship - Blu-Ray Review

This review was a bit surprising, but you hit all the right buttons. I'm buying it as soon as I can.
