Battleship

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

There will be bigger movies this summer, and better ones and worse ones. But there will not be a dumber movie than Battleship. Ponderous and pandering, shameless and head-slappingly silly, this Navy vs. Aliens epic delivers a few thrills and a few laughs. Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard play Navy men trying to stop the alien invasion, and Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Liam Neeson are also along for the ride.

Arising Tide

By Ted Lewins

This local modern rock band hit the outdoor stage for the second night of the Spring Rock-A-Thon (a three-day music fest sponsored by Vegas Rocks! magazine). They played with the power of a tsunami, and the current of music took me for quite a ride. The songs ranged from a tidal force of fast-driving frenzied beats to chilled-out grooves, placing Arising Tide’s sound somewhere between early Incubus and The Mars Volta.
