I remember playing Battleship with my dad not too long ago. I remember the elegance of the strategy needed to sink the opponents ships. It is the basis for trial and error, learning from your mistakes and changing your tactics to accommodate a diverse battlefield. The movie Battleship, is nothing like the game it is supposedly based on. The antithesis of the big summer blockbuster motif, the film itself absconds with the plot, the acting, and other things that make sense to an audience to give us the most formulaic, base shot of dope to satiate our soft tissue brain and keep our eyes engaged. To say the least, Battleship sunk itself in its cinematic outing.
