You sank my battleship! The second most iconic game after Monopoly gets it's own movie. This seems like something worth celebrating.
So the deal is, if a game (or franchise) that Mattel owns makes more than x$'s then it gets a movie. This movie looks fairly horrid. However, with peals of delight and self-congratulatory amusement G and I decided that we would ignore that obvious fact and show up opening night in true gamer-cosplay style. We are giving this movie a LoTR top shelf treatment and dressing for the occasion. All red or all white clothes and carrying our copy of the game with us. There's a fair chance we will go to dinner beforehand at Castleton Grill.
Beep... Beep... Beep... :)
