Fine, I'll be in the minority. :P
I liked the movie. I thought the dialogue was some of the best and wittiest I've ever heard in an animated feature to that point.
"'Ey, Law and Order is a team! He finds the bombs, I drive the car. We tried it the other way but it didn't work!"
"Big Lob scores! YEEEAH! The crowd goes bananas!!!"
"The crowd ain't the only thing that's gone bananas!"
"You're going to learn what it means to be a Joe even if it kills you!"
"Dr Mindbender! Will you allow Destro's assasination of my character go unchallanged?!"
"Not at all! He forgot to mention your frequent displays of COWERDICE!"
"I'm tryin' to cut down on the chickensweat, so if you don't mind I'll be going."
"You're goin' nowhere space-case! There are only two ways out of my command! On your feet, like a man, or in a bag! An itty... bitty... dittybag!"
And I happen to like organic technology. It's actually a much older concept in sci-fi that people might think. And let's face it, the Joe cartoon had its share of crazy sci-fi moments.
Only thing I really hated was Cobra Commander's origin.
BTW: On a side-note, anybody else notice how much it looked like Duke was supposed to die in the movie? After all the child-trauma inflicted by the death of Optimus Prime, I think they got scared and backed off that decision.

I agree with you that some of the lines were pretty good.
I don't hate the movie, but just watch it some times and wonder "what if"
And I think Sgt Slaughter should have been limited to just a few episodes. 2. Maybe 3, tops.
And the Cobra-La characters aren't bad either. I always thought Nemesis Enforcer was cool, so were the guards. Just not for the movie. A 2 part episode in season 2, sure. The movie? no.
I just think that so many of the characters who made GI Joe so great deserved better treatment.
And you want good lines? Check out some of Short Fuses'
Gung Ho (while chasing Zartan through the swamps): "Keep 'em bottled up in the Bayou!!"
Short Fuse: "Ok! but you'd better tell me what a Bayou is first!"

As much as they broke from the cartoon, on their own, I think Golobulus, Pythona, Nem. Enforcer and the Cobra La troopers. Burgess Meredith was great.
Nice quotes, btw.

Anyway, I liked the GI Joe movie except for 3 things.
1. I hated what they did to Cobra Commander. CC was one of my favorite characters. I've always hated that douchebag Serpentor. I wanted CC to kick Serpentor's ass!
2. I liked the Cobra-La characters (especially Pythona) but I hated what they did with them. That Cobra-lalalalalalalalala crap was retarded!
3. I wanted to smack the crap out of Falcon. He was an annoying idiot!!!

Which movie are you guys talking about? G.I.Joe and Transformers the movie (animation)? I so loved them as a kid but now I'm not able to enjoy them as much. I'm hearing impaired and watches movies with subtitle and/or captioned. I was told that the G.I.Joe the movie and Transformers the movie(animation) has no caption or subtitled. I would appreciate those who has the dvd to test them out and let me know if they are captioned or subtitled.

Sure it kind of stunk that the most popular Joes got relegated to background character status, but it's not as bad as the Transformers Movie, when all those beloved G1 Autobots get killed off in the first ten minutes.
I actually really like the GI Joe Movie, once you understand that it was intended to hype up the 1987 toys and push the previous figures into the background, then you can just enjoy the movie for what it is. Even the cartoon series was just a bunch of 30-minute commercials, so it's not like it wasn't to be expected.
I liked Falcon in the movie (voiced by Don Johnson), even though I think they might have gone a little too far with his insubordination and dereliction of duty. And I actually thought that he and Jinx had some pretty good chemistry.

you know dude, I felt inspired to go check this... the kid rhino version of the GI Joe movie and the original TF:TM dvd do not have closed captioning. On the box and website for the 20th aniversary edition of TF:TM it says there is closed captioning, but I don't see it in the menu when I put my disc in. Maybe I'm missing something?

I liked it...for what it was.
I didn't go into it comparing it to the toon that I mainly grew up on.
Bottom line...like it or hate it...it is still better than most of the toons they show now on tv...which in my eyes, is sad. With all the advances in literally EVERYTHING....why not cartoons? Some of today's toons can't hold a candle to the worst GIJoe episode/movie.

I like the GIJOE movie, despite its flaws. As a youngster in those days Cobra La was kinda cool, though I was glad it didn't continue after the movie, as far as I recall, I kind of got out of Joes for the most part shortly after, but would try and catch the occassional rerun of the old toon.
I for one look forward to the Nemesis Enforcer comic pack and hopefully the GIJOE Movie DVD figure set I hope Hasbro will make.
The only thing I didn't like was the fact that Cobra Commander basically didn't make it. I would have rather see him imprisoned w/ the Joes and tied up with the vines when they tried to escape. Only at the end to take on the head worm so Falcon could vamp up the BET to zap the spores. That would have been a more fitting end to the Cobra Commander than to have him turned into a snake. Have him turn sides against his betrayer long enough for the Joes to save the day. just a thought.
EVERY week is Bulletman week. Heathen...
