come sometime next week I'll be streaming off the net from some site and if in fact it is good I'll be the first to say I was wrong. Then I'll go out and buy a ticket see it in the theater. But if I'm right well no problem I've spent not dime one on it.

ROC is really a double edged sword, it's GI Joe on the big screen and at the same time, it isn't.
The movie like all comic/toy films like Batman, Spiderman, X-Men etc are and will never be faithful to the material its based on. There are too many cooks (producers, writers, actors, advertisers etc) stirring the pot to make the film appeal to a wide audience. It's aimed at people who have little or no prior connection with the source material.
For instance, I liked the Punisher. It was an awesome action film but it wasn't the Punisher to me.
Hollywood is never gonna make a film that appeals to all fans because all our expectations are different. If they make a film faithful to the joes, well whose vision do they pursue? filecards, the cartoons and if so which version? the comics ? Marvel? Devil's Due? Sigma Six? VvV? Spytroops?
So instead we get a film that has elements of what we know and like and elements of wtf?
When I see ROC with a bunch of friends, it'll probably be an awesome action movie, and I look forward to it from that perspective. Will it be MY GI Joe movie? probably not, but it doesn't matter because to my friends and others with little or no prior contact with the material and for lots of kids in the audience it'll be GI Joe to them.

I really wanted to see G.I. Joe in cinemas.
But unfortuneatly, it seems that we German Fans will only get a cut version in the Theaters :(
Usually PG-13 means "Not under 16" in Germany.
G.I. Joe got a "Not under 12" over here and the release Date was changed to one week later, 13.08.09
That smells like a cut theatrical Version.
I won't pay for a cut version and have to wait for the "Special Unrated Uncut Full length" Edition on DVD :/

I will because it's G.I.Joe and I'll be going into the VFX field after I'm done with school.

Opening night, 12:05 am. Even though I don't like some aspects of the film, it's G.I.JOE- I can't miss it.
I wish I could quit you G.I.JOE...
No, I don't.

I cry at movies. I know I will cry at this one. I can't see it in public, I'll be the laughing stock of the neighborhood.

I will see it because...
1. I am not stuck in the 80s and therefore I accept that "GIJoe" is not just what happened in 1985.
2. I understand it is a business unlike many others that has to appeal to a new audience.
3. It is not that freaking serious I might as well have fun watching it!
I wonder if gunslinger will back me on this one.
