A quote from Roger Ebert's review worth pointing out: "But the nicest touch is that 'Battleship' has an honest-to-God third act, instead of just settling for nonstop fireballs and explosions, as Bay likes to do. I don't want to spoil it for you. Let's say the Greatest Generation still has the right stuff and leave it at that."

I guess the bottomline from where I sit is that any film about an alien invasion of Earth is pretty preposterous. Assuming that you have the technology to even get here from some other star system, it is a given that your technological level will have provided weapons that will make the "war" about 5 minutes in duration. The few dozen of us that are alive in the wake will find ourselves living on reservations located in bleak parts of the planet and doing service jobs in some alien casino.
Nine times out of ten, in art as in life, there is no truth to be discovered, only an error to be exposed.--H.L. Menken

After being released in other countries, there was already an R.T. concensus. It was 45-50%. Now that it's being released in the U.S., it's down to around 35%: "The film may offer energetic escapism for less demanding filmgoers, but it's too loud, poorly written, and formulaic to justify its expense... and a lot less fun than its source material".

If you ask me, that's the flaw with monoplanetary alien invasion. I favor polyplanetary alien science fiction, where multiple alien planets are involved. If I ever make a game involving aliens, I'll make it poly-planetary. That way various planets can have different environments, different levels on the primitive/advanced spectrum, and can even differ between warlike versus peaceful.
 
On topic, I was wondering when the days of well-deserved RAZZIE forums would be back. On April 6, nothing was worth considering. On April 13, The Three Stooges got surprisingly mild reviews, and Lockout even had a 48% on Metacritic! Then Darling Companion got a forum but it took me to add one for The Lucky One. Then The Raven became the only wide release in April that got an official forum it deserved. Then May 4 and May 11 passed by with nothing to add RAZZberry jelly to. Finally we're back in business!
 
...only flaw is that we're still subsisting on Foto Funnies. Trying not to be "berry rude," but I am wondering why we haven't returned to full-fledged "HeadRAZZberry's Take" on all Forums??

There is only one word that can sum this movie up and it is this (it was also used in Empire Magazie's verdict of the film) - MISS!
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

Well I'm still alive. It's one of the worst movies in recent memory and the only reason it's not the worst of the year is because there's no message at the end telling me to go to a promotional website.

No aliens would want to visit Earth. They've been scared off by the 700 Club!

Battleship could have been a good movie. Unfortunately poor direction and screenplay spoiled it. This should get nominations for Worst Screenplay (Erich Hoeber and Jon Hoeber) and Worst Director (Peter Berg). 
Directed by Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan comes...a movie guaranteed to win Razzies!
