Boys & BATTLESHIP the movie ... Eye-Yi-Yi!

by jenna posted May 21 2012 2:43PM
Yesterday my husband & son went to see Battleship.  Sure, it's PG 13 & my baby boy is only 8, but I have recently been convinced that "It's better to see it with an adult ..." blah, blah, blah.  Truth is, I enjoy a few hours to myself when I can synchronize the boys going to a movie with my daughter having a play date at someone else's house ;) AND I love that my boys have "a thing" ... superhero movies & the like are what they love to do together.  And as a wife & mom, I ADORE that.

But I digress ...

When the boys returned home, my son was THRILLED!  He loved it!  It wasn't as "super cool great" as The Avenger's ... But it certainly was fantastic for a rainy Sunday afternoon.  Charlie described the movie for a solid 15 minutes.  He TOTALLY enjoyed himself.  

A little while later my husband Brian, a Tomahawk Missile expert for the Navy, quietly shared his feelings on the movie..."it was kind of unrealistic...the USS Missouri, USS John Paul Jones & the USS Samson were fighting a war with aliens...they were shooting 5 inch guns while the main character was right next to it - which would have killed him instantly...they were launching SM2's that looked just like Tomahawks - which they don't..." ...so on & so forth ...

Two things:  #1). It was the use & style of weapons he took issue with as far as credibility, NOT that they were fighting off aliens ...#2) I'm going to download every WKRP in Cincinnati episode and critique every "non-realistic" radio moment...

;). Have a great Monday!

Jenna, Guilty as well. If it deals with medicine, severe storms meteorology, or the Coast Guard, I'm usually jumping up and down throwing the BS flag at some point. ;-) Having done a short stint myself in broadcasting way back when (I still have my FCC license), WKRP was a bit of a stretch. ;-) Rob
