Re: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Grading & Discussion

I'd totally be up for a sequel so long as they give CC a better looking mask. That being said, I really hope they learn their lesson from Transformers 2 about shitty sequels. It's Stephen Sommers after all, and I'm not quite sure this film isn't a fluke as far as his movie-making ability goes. Because after Transformers 1, I was more then willing to take back all the bad stuff I had said about Micheal Bay.

It's gotten 39% so far on Rotten Tomatoes ... ouch.
Why does anyone care about stuff like Rotten Tomatoes scores?? Seriously I have never understood that.

The film rocked and I enjoyed it.

Because... no one knows what to think anymore, unless something tells them what to think. Shame really.

It was a fun movie. Some great action and fighting scenes. And some awful CGI.

Re: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Grading & Discussion

I thought that it was great. It really did have a GI JOE feel to it and really did tribute to a franchise that was all about stopping world domination with ridiculous gadgets and weapons.

It not only had an underwater base, but also a base under the desert. That is like double-win.

Oh God yes, that was some of the best stuff.
I saw the underwater base and I yelled out in the theater "Oh my God! An underwater base! kickass!". I figured I'd be shushed but instead I got a lot of "wooo!"s in return.

Just watched this movie. Worse than Wolverine. Worse than Terminator Salvation. I'm all for braindead popcorn flicks, but don't lobotomize the audience in the process.

And if he could, Stephen Sommers would probably have sex with his CGI.

Rachel Nichols and Sienna Miller were hot though. And Quaid was good in a thankless role.

Now I'll never claim it's Citizen Kane, but there is no way in Hell it's worse then Wolverine or Terminator:Salvation. For one, it knows it's a bad, stupid movie and has fun with it. The others actually thought they were good. And this is coming from someone who usually hates Stephen Sommers films.

I thought it was a lot of fun. WTF was up with Eccleston's accent, though?

My only demand for a sequel is more of Rachel Nichols running around in tight outfits.

You know, they had Storm Shadow stripping during a fight; who knows how this movie would've been received if the Baroness and Scarlett stripped during their fight.

How small they made the universe? Hell, DC and Moscow are next door neighbors in this movie!

Actually, that other missile was headed towards Moscow, Canada, which in the not too distant future has replaced Ottawa as the Canadian capital.

Re: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Grading & Discussion

Below Average, and mostly because there was so much shitty CGI.

Channing Tatum was amazing...in that he was out-acted by both a Wayans brother and a guy in full-body rubber suit. Then again, Duke always was a generic american male lug.

Who the fuck cast Jonathan Pryce as an American president? I mean, really.

Destro never said the trailer line "Whut didja say tha name of yoor yoo-nit was?"

Hawk: "I didn't."

Best scenes:

I like when Batman tossed the coins into the air and Two-Face fumbled and fell to a watery grave.

And then Lando and Wedge blew up the base's power core.

When Bond ignored Q's technical advice.

Re: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - Grading & Discussion

I was having too much fun to notice.
Of course, I thought it was cool that the Ninth Doctor ended up being Destro.
