j.c. it's just a movie. have you watched the movie yet? if you do decide to see the movie, i'm sure you'll find some elements building up in the movie so you have a story. besides if they had the same type of story or characters as the cartoon, you might as well just go home and watch the cartoon.

man how old are you if you dont think the 80s should be the main source?? if you are talking about the 12in? they did start it back in 1964. they had no real charters that i know of just general names ie rocky for army skip for navy & ace for air force. they where called adventure team.
what really brought joe to life was the 80s. so there you go .OH thats right you cant tell why we say Roc Is like S6. man you are worse then the haters of the film. i think you are tring so hard to disprove everything about everything.
OH you are wrong with 5 there where 2! 1 was the 1990 joes a whole new line up and it did very well. then that crap Extreme.
i have the book the history of g i joe you should pick it up its a great read. It tells you alot about the joe line from 1964 to 1996.

I will reserve final opinion on the movie after I see it although in order to motivate myself to go see it I am predicting the need for a lot of alcohol to overcome my better judgment. I have to admit that I have serious doubt to begin with like many others (my doubt however hasn't changed since the new toy release as I find them sad and pathetic to say the least).
That said, I can only pray nightly that the new movie is done as well as Star Trek was. Hopefully, the ROC will not completely ignore (CC ruined but set aside for the moment) the material that has already been established by RAH since it is that which provided Hasbro with so much money and the rest of us with so much enjoyment both as kids and now as collectors. At least Star Trek, love it or hate it, did a pretty good job in my opinion at appealing to new and old fans alike and used the original characters to boot (even one of the original actors).
Transformers, at least the first one since I haven't seen Rise of the Fallen yet, kept a lot of the old school elements that attracted fans of old as well as new elements to bring in fresh blood and used old school characters to do it.
ROC, at least from what the brief, overall vague trailers tell me, looks to at least have a few of those familiar elements. I hope however that it goes further and doesn't end with the trailers alone providing the only familiarity thus leaving the rest of the movie to suck like I initially think it will but hope it doesn't.
If we are real lucky, it won't down down the crapper like Wolverine or X3 before it

I think it gives us and kids a new spin on things with some old recognizable names. There's not meant to be a continuation, only a recreation. They did it with Halloween and Friday the 13th although those stayed more true, there was still someone elses spin on it. The more i look at this the more i think this was the only option. You want to mgain new fans, fans that can identify with the new and also new fans that will grow to appreciate the old. If you stay strictly to script you might as well make it a cartoon becasue it's near impossible to create the magic that it had in the 80's. Pint being, that's not it's intent. It;s intent is to step outside of that and launnch into a new direction in hopes of capturing more overall interest. Now if the movie is a hit, you'll see more non joe fans trying to connect with the old stuff. If it fails we're left with an anomyly to add to the already exsiting strand of attempts, and sadly that wil be the legacy. however, the true fans will always have "their" Gijoe. This movie is for the new fan. Should Habro or Paramont want this to curtail into a spinoff cartoon series ala Clone wars, then you know you got an interest and something fans can be pround of to add to their legacy, if not well let;s pray Resolute gets some love. If done correctly this could very well be our star wars universe. So far the toys say its promising. On that note, will you guys please leave some of the damn dessert ambush Scarlett's on the shelf?

I posted something like the same and the mods keep deleting my posting.
I am with you all the way.
Why fix something that was not broken.
Instead, they want to interject elements of affirmative action, political correctness, and produce this eclectic social experiment on film.
They just labeled the movie G.I.Joe and give the characters the same code names as in the comic.
The makers have this hair brain idea that they can't make this anything "American" otherwise it will not sell in the world market. The already seem to know it will not do too well and so they are focusing on the international market.
I can speak volumes but I am just to hoarse to complain about it anymore.
Save to say, I WILL NOT BE GOING TO THE THEATER TO SEE THIS FILM.
IT IS ONLY WORTH A NETFLIX.
I am ashamed. I have waited 25 years for this show to be made and it is nothing I ever wanted to see.
I adamently refuse to allow my money to be included in any weekend opening revenues.
I will get it when Netflix gets it. It is the cheapest way.
If anyone else agrees with me, please sound off! I got deleted the last time I made a thread like this. I was cited for trying to incite a flame war or whatever. Not so!
I am just trying to indicate factual things about what I know or have analyzed from other sources.
Freedom of speech as long as I don't infringe upon anyone else.
You don't get much more Amercian than that and you won't get anything remotely American with this new film.
Hasblo, Sommers, or someone else at Paramount has decided to take anything Amercian out of the film.
Never know, maybe the test markets indicates high blockbuster revenues in Iran and North Korea.
This is not my G.I.Joe
