Now i have been complaining and dissing this film ever since i saw the super bowl trailer.
However, i still want to see it.
Just check out my posts, i have some pretty good suspicions on how this picture is gonna suck but since it is g.i.joe, i must see it.
Granted, i will go to the 2:30 matinee showing to relieve the ticket costs a little.
But i will be the first to start surgicly destroying this film and its producers if it sucks.
I will be unforgiving in its destruction with the mission to get us a reboot of g.i.joe if it sucks.
However, i have to see it to believe it.
I won't boycott it based on the trailer.
As a footnote, i feel like i am in a precarious position because i want to be fair to the film although i am very passionate about my joe! I am scared it is going to suck beyond belief but there is nothing i can do about it accept grin and bear for whatever may come.
I am going into this battle blind and all i have is my wits to get me through this one.

man no matter how we try to pretty this up in our heads or try to give it a go . it will be a bad movie with no heart or good acting. they went way over board on the flim. Hasbro should of kept a tighter leash on it. i dont mind revamps of the line if it stays true to what joe is. For 1 this is not what joe was ment to be. It is a live S6 movie and that line didnt do well. they have not learned the golded rule STICK WITH WHAT WORKS!!!!!!!!
RESOLUTE was the best way to go with the line. now yes it had deaths but so dose the TF movies and the ppl love it. now the fans including me hate what bay did to the Tf but over all it is a good action flick.

So yeah, A white breaker would have drawn more people to go see the movie.
Don't just make sh*t up to try and prove a point.
Quit making sh*t up.
It's not a fact, so don't say "but the fact is". It's your opinion.

I know G.I. Joe. The Joes are friends of mine. This movie is no G.I. Joe. To put it all in a nutshell, that's the problem that us O.Gs. has with movie. It isn't what G.I. Joe is suppose to be.
Let's take Resolute. Sure Resolute had it's flaws. Namely Cobra troopers with aim that's as bad as a storm trooper. Tunnel Rat going on a mission that actually Breaker or Dial Tone should've been on. Scarlett hooking up with Duke, and the biggy, Storm Shadow being turned into a whiny, vindictive bitch that was jealous of Snake Eyes.
Despite all of this, us the Joe purists embrace, Resolute because it's true to the source material and it's an entertaining story.
After watching the trailer to the movie, not only am I pissed off. I'M FUCKING OFFENDED!!!
To tell the truth, when I heard there was a live action Joe movie being made, I wasn't too excited. This movie has been made before. Special opts team goes out to prevent bad things from happening or kill the bad guys. How was G.I. Joe's take on this theme going to be different. Then I saw the trailer. I was like, "I don't know what the fuck this is, but it definitely isn't G.I. Joe.
The Joes are AMERICA'S BEST FIGTHING FORCE!!!! NOT SOME MULTINATIONAL U.N./NATO CRAP!!!
The Joes are set in the present or the 80's and use present day equipment. As a matter of fact one of things that drew people to G.I. Joe was the realism of the series. So where do accelerator suits fit in?
Joes and Cobra are mere mortals. Nobody has in the Joe universe has superpowers with the exception of Zartan. So way are the Joes taking mighty leaps off of buildings and being able to avoid missiles and diving through bus windows?
Rumor has it that Scarlett has a relationship with Ripcord. I read in another thread that the Baroness had a relationship with Duke. The Baroness doesn't have her accent. In the trailer Destro isn't wearing his mask. I won't even comment on that wack ass C.C. figure
Going to back to Ripcord. I don't have a problem with Marlon Wayans in the movie. He's an actor and actors should be given the opportunity to show the depth of their skill. My boy Chuck, (like some of you,) have Marlon Wayans type cast as a certain kind of character. I asked Chuck would he have a problem with Jamie Foxx in the movie. He said no. I asked him if this was a few years ago before Ray, would he have a problem with Jamie Foxx being in the movie. He thought about it and didn't have answer. The problem I have with Marlon Wayans is why isn't he one of the black characters in already established in the Joe Universe namely the black character who was part of the Joe team since the being and played a major role in both the cartoon and the comic book, NAMELY STALKER!!!!!
There's been so many needless continuity changes to this project that I have to wonder who the intended audience is. From the looks of it, it obviously isn't me or other Joe O.G.'s. So why call something G.I. Joe if it isn't G.I. Joe?
That's where I get offended. Hasbro and Paramount are so fucking arrogant and thoughtless to that think fans like me will just mindlessly spend our few hard earned dollars on anything that has the G.I. Joe brand name on it.
I won't be seeing Rise of Cobra. I strongly urge the fandom not see Rise of Cobra because it will only reward Hasbro and Paramount's arrogance towards us. We have to send a message that the fandom can not and WILL NOT be taken for granted.
I have a very hard time believing that ROC was a conceived as a G.I. Joe movie. In my opinion, I believe somebody else's project was hijacked and the G.I. Joe brand was attached to it. If this was originally conceived a G.I. Joe movie, (as I asked with Superman Returns,) with all the scripts pitched for G.I. Joe, this was the best one to shoulder the franchise on?
