And when they make out together... That's why some of the people were unaccounted for in the test groups. Heart attack.

Yes, I think that every indication is that ROC is mecha- lame. Not because I want it to be lame, far from it. It's just that I have eyes and it looks real lame, with sad on top. And yes, I think that I, Captain Average, could produce a more palatable GIJoe film with a camcorder and volunteers from the local Army Surplus store.
And I don't refer to "Electricians, accountants, interns, food service, costumers, model makers" when I say clowns. Let me be clear- it is the creative forces behind ROC I refer to as clowns. This includes but is not necessarily limited to, the director and writers.
Regarding execs, I don't know any from Hasbro specifically, but I reserve the right to generalize. I do work with many corporate execs of various levels and I don't need a study to tell me what I've learned from 20 years in business- some folks get where they are because they look pretty in a suit and don't burn the house down when daddy's out. Rising through corporate ranks does not equal starting and building a business. I would chose the average UPS delivery guy over the average Corporate Exec in tag- team Double Jeopardy any day of the week.
Finally, I thinks it's fun to argue and stir it up over what we think the movie looks like. It's fun or we wouldn't take the time out of our lives to crank out witty retorts. So while I'll argue and defend my opinions, I feel no need to defend how I base my judgements. That is my right alone. Insisting my basis of judgment itself "isn't OK" is the red, white and blue example of arrogance that I see in this thread.
P.S. I promise I won't watch ROC unless a freind brings the Blu-ray*** to my home, turns it on, and I am too exausted from arguing with strangers on message boards all day to get out of my recliner or at least turn away.
***It would have to be Blu-ray- fuzzy, archaic DVD's give me headaches. Aren't those only still used in places 8 years behind us, like, Canada?

My mom's full blooded Canadian. Me and my brother tease her relentlessly for it.

Gonna say since school will be out, it opens strong, a little lower than star trek, but with a larger drop, since trek has gotten such great responses.
It won't be the monster transformers was. It doesn't have the iconic visuals that grab the nostalgic or casual fan. Transformers wasn't visually "accurate" either, but a car that turns into a robot automatically does the job.
Even Snake Eyes jumping into your face just cannot compare to that. I think ads closer to the release can capture some of this with some shots of destro's iconic silver mug, and some audio of Cobra Commanders voice.
Plus it's in a strange position of kind of being a military film, but likely very low on guns and violence...is it for kids? Is it not?
But, then again, Wolverine did extremely well, and it wasn't very well received(I found it way better than I expected) and I don't recall seeing a drop of blood among all the slashing claws!
Name alone - some success. I hope it does well, and isn't considered a failure just for not doing as well as the several other big summer films do.
As far as the casual adult viewers, during the joe preview before trek, there was no audience reaction whatsoever, aside from one guy who loudly said "GAY!" at the end.
