    This person Taylor Kitsch - their career is probably over.

    You can't really call Battleship a Rihanna-movie since she only plays a small part in it (it's possible to write down all of her lines on a single page). She wasn't actually that bad it was just that the movie didn't give her (or any other character) much to work with.

    I think you're right that Taylor Kitsch shares a place with Ryan "Green Lantern" Reynolds on the list of people-we-won't-see-in-blockbusters-again.

    OT: Just read on IMDB that Ryan Reynolds is rumored to play the lead in the upcoming Highlander-remake. Mind Is Blown, maybe it's a good thing that they flopped.

  • Highlander can't be remade, that is a sacred film!!!!!!

    My comment on this is: Shit film doing shit, Problem?

    It is the 'Rihanna' film regardless how small a part and how many lines she has in it. It's always going to be called that as it's her first role in a film.

    And she might be the only reason to go see it for most, as hinted at by the male audience.

    Not a surprise actually. The commercial already made the movie look uninteresting, to me. Seemed like a cliche. But it's whatever. At least they're still making some sort of money.

    You say that like it's a good thing.

    They're re- making Highlander? With Ryan Reynolds? The world's gone ape shit.

    John Cartr wasn't that bad. For Battleship, I had no interest in it.
