i figured out the key to the joe movie NOT looking hokey on the big screen.
the other night, my 12yr old son, Young.Heaux, and i were watching Judge Dredd.
now before anyone starts crapping on Judge Dredd...
A. i love Dredd and yes, i loved the movie, flaws and all...........and..........
B. were not here to crap on Judge Dredd in the first place.
anyhoo, the futuristic setting of Judge Dredd gave credibility to the costumes, weapons and vehicles.
in Dredd's future, no one questions mean angel, a guy with 50% robotic prosthetics, including an "anger dial" on his forehead.
i dont think that joe should be set as far out as Dredd, but if it ends up being flung far enough out, they wont have to stick with F22s, M-16s, and M1A1s. and guys who wear featureless chrome masks to instill terror will be able to do so, cuz thats what MAY be in our future.
i know some of the info out there indicates that the movie is set in the "future" (10yrs, i think it is). that info, coupled with watching Dredd, made me realize that the key to making this movie work on a "realistic fantasy" level is a futuristic timeframe. linking it to the times now, will, IMO, force the filmmakers to have to tear it away from what made us enjoy the comics and cartoon.

I don't know about anger dials, but I'm down with your deduction. I think that's where they need to take a page from "FutureWeapons" and then design from there out a decade. That way it is both realistic with where military technology is going and flashy with some great hollywood fx built off of that. I think the weapons and vehicles should kinda resemble some of the better Sigma 6 ideas.
