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.
Patrick Wilson does NOT play that song in any Insidious movie. Instead, that’s the Conjuring series (which are period pieces, hence the selection of Elvis).
I liked De Palma’s Mission: Impossible for steering away from James Bond tropes. The stakes are just the reveal of classified information, and the motivation is money. No one is trying to blow up the world, which were the very stupid stakes of the most recent film, so dumb that there’s no reason henchman should even be willing to help the baddie.
Greta Gerwig had already directed more than 2 movies prior to Barbie. She co-directed Nights & Weekends with Joe Swanberg.
I thought The Autopsy of Jane Doe was also good, and that was outside of Norway.
Wasn’t Nic Cage in a Left Behind movie? He didn’t get stuck doing that.
