I can see now that this is going to be a movie the terribleness of which I shall be obsessed with.
How do I know it’s going to be terrible? Because of this:
Hasbro. Emboldened by the “success” of the Transformers franchise, they are unleashing a full toy-movie assault on upon us. Don’t think there won’t be more.
You know what other toys Hasbro owns? My Little Pony. Play-Doh. You wanna see Nerf go to war? Oh, it’s coming, my friend. It’s coming.
Because look: Battleship is clearly going to be another alien-invasion apocalypse flick with the slight — very slight — novelty of beginning in “the ocean.” (Are the aliens here for our water? *facepalm*) All Hasbro movies shall henceforth be Michael Bay movies:
Her dad said they were gonna come and we ain’t alone. Her dad knows shit.
