Will he sink their Battleship?
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that any adaptation of a boardgame is probably an ill-conceived, creatively bankrupt idea. It’s better when one points it out though, and James Cameron
, with his two top-selling movies of all time, is just such a genius. Translated from a German interview
, the Avatar
filmmaker blames the studio need to brand their output, saying “Unfortunately these franchises are becoming more ridiculous. Battleship
. This degrades the cinema.” Burn, assuming the translation is sound. Peter Berg’s movie might be a fun alien invasion flick… but when did Battleship
ever have anything to do with aliens? --Adam Rosenberg
