Battleship

Got my first smartphone just after Christmas - the Samsung Galaxy Nexus which has a large, 4.67" SuperAMOLED screen. Took a chance and rented Battleship just to see how an HD movie looked/sounded on a portable device.

Not expecting a great flick - it wasn't. It was entertaining and worth a rental (cost me $4.99 via Google). You get up to 30 days to start watching your selection and once you hit start, you then have 24 hours to view it unlimited times.

I read some HiDef magazine reviews on this film and they were generally favorable, giving it a "Recommended" rating. Video and audio quality were surprisingly good so I may opt to buy it (Amazon lists it for $20). My AVR is a bit old and can't decode the latest audio codecs. Wife doesn't like it when I play movies "at volume"...

I saw battleship and was in Hawaii when they filmed it. Got in the elevator and I think the entire camera crew with equipment got in with me.

Thought it was a fun movie and it did look nice. Not Oscar material but a great popcorn goofy sci-fi flick

I have been seeing the marketing for Taken 2. I am not interested at all. Taken was awesome. There is no way Taken 2 can be worth seeing.

It was quite good. My wife liked it and after coming to terms with the fact that the story line was not what I expected, I'll say that I also liked it. Certainly no action blockbuster like I anticipated.

I'm still waiting. I'll have to admit, I'm starting to get a little tired of watching "Gladiator." Still not quite there, yet.

"End Of Watch" 3/5
Merely entertaining. My friend saw this movie and thought it was god's gift to cinema.
It wasn't bad, worth seeing, but not great.

10 sci-fi movies coming in 2013! I've read three of the Ender's Game books (there's 13!) and that movie may be good. http://www.denofgeek.com/movies/2285...ard-to-in-2013
