    While it's always tragic to see a great world city laid waste by alien meteorite thingies, I must admit I'm happy that these aliens chose the more visually arresting and generally superior Chinese city on which to unleash their fiery wrath. This just wouldn't look as cool if it happened in Beijing with all of it's mismatching Lego®️ buildings. And besides, Hollywood has filmed enough pictures there for the time being.

    Or perhaps this whole sequence from the trailer for next summer's board-game-to-big-screen adaptation BATTLESHIP is offering pointed commentary on the effect of mainland China on the HKSAR. Oooooh, subtext!

    While movies like these tend to split consensus, there really is no better way to experience them than on the big screen. Since the trailer for this one actually name checks the TRANSFORMERS movies ("From Hasbro . . .!" Laughing ), I'll even confess that I rather enjoyed the experience of watching all three of those at the theatre, even though I found them aggressively and needlessly stupid in so many ways. BATTLESHIP seems a bit smarter—tentatively speaking—but either way there's enough visual candy there to at least warrant a night out.
