When Hollywood get their mitts on a classic boardgame

This really has to be seen to be believed. Battleship the bloody movie. I kid you not. That’s right, they’ve turned THIS:

into a film. And not just ANY film! No, it has a plot and everything (kind of). Thus spake Yahoo! Movies:

Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard play brothers and naval officers facing off against an alien invasion.

I really don’t remember there being any aliens whenever I played Battleship. Do you? Anyway, here it is, in all it’s … err … traileryness. (Yes, I really can’t think of a more descriptive word.)

The correct response to the above should be somewhere along the lines of “what the fuuuuuuuuck?!?!” It looks … well like they’ve got high and played with Transformers figures and thought it would be a brilliant idea to make a movie out of a classic boardgame. If only they could think of a plot. And that’s when it hit them – to combine the two! Aahh-SUM, dude! And let’s get Liam Neeson and Rihanna in it, that’ll like totally ROCK!

A clue: no.

I think it looks like a film I’d be happy to ignore even when it eventually is shown on TV. What do you reckon – Battleship (2012) – does it float your boat?
