Ever play StarCraft? This is humans spamming marines with no upgrades because they didn't tech up while the zerg also got upgraded hydralisks with higher numbers.

The while concept is stupid, f22 as bombers lol. If planes can kill them so easily, why didn't they just bomb the shit out of Siberia in the first place? The aliens didn't have anti air or air, they can glide at best, so some A-10s can basically win the war already. Then send in the pretty much any armor supported by attack helicopters would make it a walk in the park.

This is what happens when a bunch of liberal arts people write a war story.

I've pretty much stopped expecting Hollywood to make any sensical war stories or battle scenes. Remember the Wakandans? Those guys who have hover crafts and forcefields, yet charge into battle with spears.

With spears but no Kung Fu! And aliens with spaceships but no guns and go all melee! That's why Marvel movies are dumb.

It’s worse than that, at least Starcraft machines can kill Zerglings and had armour and health so they weren’t one-shot by the first attack that lands. This was like spamming SCVs only.

Hollywood always makes sure that when F-22 and F-35 faces Kaiju, that the stealth fighters must always fly within arms length of the Kaiju so they can be struck down with the swing of the arm.

Anyone watch The Tomorrow War on Amazon Prime? The alt-right fanboys up are up in arms that Chris Pratt, their new Republican hero's movie is getting bad reviews. It deserves bad reviews because the logic is a mess. Don't read any further if you don't want to know what happened. So aliens invade the Earth in the future so they recruit humans in the past to fight in the future. So in the future they come up with a toxin that kills the aliens but they can't manufacture it large amounts so they get Chris Pratt's character to bring in back in the past to manufacture there and when that's done it's suppose to be sent back to the future so they can use it there. Why? There are only 500,000 humans left in the future. The wife comes up with the idea of waiting to use the toxin to prepare when the aliens start their invasion. The thing is they mention they only know the aliens started attacking at this certain year but there was no signs of aliens ships landing or anything. They just showed up. So they figure out that the aliens may have been already on Earth years before where in fact they've been here for thousands of years frozen in ice in a Russian glacier and global warming thaws them out. So they go up there and find the alien's ship and find the aliens in suspension in there pods and they start injecting the toxin and of course they die but the aliens screams as they die wake up all the other aliens in their pods and there's too many so they just blow up the ship. No toxin needed in the first place. Of course in the story this had to happen to lead them to that but a lot of it was unnecessary because the smartest person that figured out most of it was the guy's wife. Of course they had to make a 2-hour movie to fill but it was lazy and it could've been better if it was smarter. I thought it was okay for just a ride movie. No brain cells required.

I watched it at night in several sessions while my baby was fussing. It plays out like a bigger and dumber version of Starship Trooper that wasn't at all ironic.

Basically everything about this movie is stupid and nonsensical.

Yeah, the movie is shockingly bad.

So shockingly bad that the punchline at the end of the movie totally caught me by surprise and I actually lol'd.

That punchline "Did you tell it ......" and the follow on line is pure gold. Not enough to redeem the movie though.

Apparently they are making a sequel… Good lord.
