    This.

    So basically he's saying another movie doing well is something to blame for your own movie doing badly. Someone's a bit butthurt.

    Berg should know that directing a movie is a business. You win some and you lose some.

    I think one more reason for Battleship's failure is that it was yet another generic alien invasion flick, which Hollywood has been churning out left and right the last few years. Moviegoers just finally said "no more".

    Dear Peter Berg, Hasbro, the movie studios & distributors,

    You just made an action movie about, of all things, a fucking board game... that promoted the name "Transformers" in every trailer on every poster almost more than the name of the actual movie itself. Starring Rhianna. Uhmm...

    Sincerely,
    99% of everyone on the planet

    Please Peter Berg, just give your sequel money to Marvel/Disney and say you were at least in some indirect way, part of a great movie that did well.

    I haaaaated Battleship, the entire time I was asking just what the hell was with some of these choices. Spinning chainsaw balls? Really?

    If you offer someone enough money they would show up in a muppet outfit and quote Peewee Herman. I'm sure he got a reasonably large check for his part in the film.

    I was trying to eat a cookie, but it tasted like shit.

    Then I saw a pie. Mmmm pie, so I ate the pie instead, F that nasty cookie.

    It's the pie's fault that I did'nt eat the cookie.

    People were hyping the avengers for 4 years and it came out a week before. Most people seen battleship and thought transformers knock off. I personally though battleship should have been a comedy with lil bits of action.

    Their logic seems legit.
