    1. I think transformer movies Stockholm syndromed me. Battleship looked like a transformers movie only choreographed and paced 10x better with a coherent plot and characters that were not annoying or racist. I ended up loving the movie based off of those expectations.

      Still do enjoy battleship after multiple viewings.. I wish transformers were as good as battleship...

    1. Oh no! It's no good? I've been wanting to see it since Jackson recommended it.

      Also, Gene Shalit always shoots himself after a quippy review. Always.

      Delete
    2. I know where Jackson's coming from...it does take a left turn into some survivalist action near the end. But oh boy you have to work to get there.
