O.k. So I saw the Dark Knight last weekend. It F'ing Ruled. I'm not even a quarter as big a Batman fan as GI.Joe or Transfomers. Still I recognize that the new Batman movie was great.
The New Batman movies are well made, well acted, well directed and definitely not just for kids. However you can't deny that some of Batman's encarnations have been..well..rather silly.
Like this. "Holy Sardine!!"
Or this craptacular Batman from a more recent 1997 exploit
GI.Joe has had it's fair share of silliness, Eco Worriors, Battle force 2000, Cobra-la, but I don't think it's ever gone past the redemption point though.
So what I am wondering is why not show the same respect to the new GI.Joe movie (or Transformers movie for that matter) as they have shown to Batman in his new movies?
This is a quote from a Tanker about the new Joe Movie
"..this movie WILL rule...if you are expecting saving private ryan-then you really dont know what gi joe is all about!"
I'm personally not expecting the GI.Joe movie to be like 'Saving Private Ryan' or 'Apocalypse Now' or 'Full metal Jacket'.
But please spare us Powersuits, comic relief characters, and Laser guns.
Were adults now dammit!!

Delta...could this post have been made in the "This movie is going to suck?" thread? Seems as it's only going to spawn the same kind of discussion.
