Battleship.Letter from Gene

In Battleship, some alien super high tech ships had landed somewhere near Pearl Harbour where some also high tech digitally run american destroyers were having some naval exercise. Invariably the more high tech aliens decimated our digital stalwarts one by one. In a plot twist a la Space Cowboys involving an aging Clint Eastwood saving the world, the only ship left to face the rampaging extra terrestrials was a 70 year old battleship which had somehow become a museum for school kids cos – guess what – it’s all analog. Yet somehow it was unsinkable and in a strategem that was all about reading the right book and extracting just what was contextually appropriate, the hero with help of a crew of old shipmen who all looked like our grandpas… well, won’t spoil the movie for you.
