Battleship Pretension is a movie discussion podcast started in 2007 by Tyler Smith and David Bax. Since then, we’ve done live comedy shows, written reviews, commentaries and more.
Battleship Pretension is a film discussion show and a film review website founded by Tyler Smith and David Bax. Beginning in March 2007, Battleship Pretension the show (known to fans simply as “BP”) embodies the type of laidback, free-flowing conversations had by lovers of film around the world. Battleship Pretension the website is dedicated to being a destination for those seeking worthwhile opinions on current releases, be they foreign, independent, studio pictures, theatrical, home video releases, etc. From its meager beginnings in Los Angeles, Battleship Pretension has amassed a worldwide audience and readership. From Germany to Korea to Australia, people have tuned in to share in Tyler and David’s love of film. As Battleship Pretension’s following continues to grow, the purpose remains the same: Reach out to the international cinephile community, invite them to join in the discussion and perhaps even start one of their own.
i don’t really get how “Nope” “falls apart” in the last 30min. the characters decide to turn the situation to their advantage. Do they all have “complete arcs”? i think the character growth can be seen in their actions and bravery. not sure what Tyler was hoping for that he didn’t get.
granted, i’m an absolute sucker for Michael Wincott, so i might’ve just been enraptured. and, i have to admit not being wowed by the big final CGI clusterfuck. I thought the movie peaks with the “Sunglasses at Night” setpiece, but i thought it told a complete story
