Snake Eyes is cool.

Could be fun. Was never too much into GI Joe, so, nothing can really be "ruined" for me.

I think I'm going to need your commentary if I go watch this movie.



Having said that, provided the action scenes rock, I think my expectations for this movie would be satisfied.

Even in a modern setting, Stephen Sommers needs to go all-out with over the top CGI.

Same here. At least the second part. I loved GI Joe when I was younger, but even then I viewed it to be campy and silly. From the casual-Friday uniforms, to Cobra Commander's voice, to how hundreds of guys just a few feet apart could unload torrents of gun...erm...LASER fire on each other and have no one go down. As a result the source material is a far cry from being sacred to me. The movie looks like it might be fun. If so, then I'm not going to decry it if it winds up being GI-Joe in name only.

Is this the sequel to Wanted?

As amends for making the Joe team international they took down the damned Frenchies' tower, now pass me the Freedom Fries.

Wait for the obligatory CGI scene of two HUGE opposing armies ready to do battle.

Are there really people out there who are emotionally invested in fuckin' GI Joe? I don't know why that surprises me.

I am, and I have waited for a Joe movie for years. The trailer looks absolutely gorgeous! Sienna Miller really looks like the Baroness in this one!

I'm not big on the trailer but I was really into GI JOE as a kid so I'll go see it anyway.

My childhood is safe. Either way, it's just a movie and my memories are what they are.

Re: "G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra" trailer released

I really have no connection to the source material but it looks like it could be decent action. Plus Sienna Miller and Rachel Nichols are hot.
