PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I don’t think that I will be catching this one after all because my mind is still blown from what I witnessed in the recently opened “The Avengers”. Whew, did that film leave me breathless and I think that I will need to see this a couple of more times in the theater before it ends the run. This “Battleship” film did look like fun and I’d like to see it but figure I might be waiting until its on cable or one of the subscription services that I pay for. What about you folks? Will you be seeing this one? Chime in down below in the comments and I will see you again soon.
