I was just told my name made it on the GI Joe credits. Tanker representing....Going to watch it tonight....I'm under CAFEFX.....Bernardo Rodriguez as VFX editor
Now I'm going to have to buy a poster and sport it on my wall. As I was fortunate enough to get to work on one of my dream movies.

My brain is still kind of on overload right now. I want to talk about this movie with you guys but I have no idea where to start! Reading all of the reviews on here has reminded me about a lot of things that I liked and disliked about ROC. LOL!!
BTW, the poll should have been on a scale of 1-10 vote.

I saw the movie this morning and loved it. It was nice to see some new life breathed into one of my old favorites. Sure it won't win any awards or raise the CGI bar, but it was a good movie on its own merits. I thought the story was good and the Vipers looked awesome on screen, especially the Elites and Eels. Sorry if it's "not cool" to like this movie because it doesn't follow the comics or cartoon. Get over it. Enjoy it for what it is. If this movie were anything like the cartoon you would have to pour it over your nachos. I give The Rise of Cobra high marks, and if you're not a pretentious, fan-boy asshole you might like it too. Just a question for all you 40 year old virgins trashing this flick: how many ROC toys are hiding in your closet?

Why the hell do my posts keep getting taken down when I've said nothing bad in the first place???
Some of my thoughts on the Movie
sn8ke3y3s on Fri Aug 07, 2009 2:10 pm
Just got back from the 10:15am showing and my thoughts.
SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS
Things I liked: Seeing a live action GIJOE Movie on the big screen! Good story and great action scenes! Seeing Snake and Storm go at it was cool- needed more of it though! Loved the doctor character AKA Cobra Commander- put the face shield on him in the next movie and he'll rock as CC! The movie kept its pulse and not any slow areas. I enjoyed it for the most part and I feel that Sommers pulled off a good Comic book feel to a movie based off a toy etc etc!
Now- things I didn't like: The special effects in some ares seemed a little fake-ish. The acting was a little flat in some areas- but not major. Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow characters are one-dimensional in this film, compared to how they were written by Larry Hama. I wish they would have made the movie 15 minutes longer, just so you would learn more about them- maybe in the sequel! The other problem with them is, that they seemed just angry at each other or disliked each other and weren't ever best friends at one time. ??? I didn't like the past relationship between Duke and the Baroness. The Baroness IMOP should be ruthless. I really didn't like how they "possibly" redeemed her at the end on the movie! I still don't like that the Baroness and Cobra Commander are brother and sister! I didn't like how Cobra Commander and Destro were caught at the end of the movie. With all of it's problems- it's not bad at all and I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
I'm going to go back tomorrow with my brother and see it again and see all the stuff I missed the first time.

One thing I notice is when people talk about the score of the movie and all the music choices being bad, I think about it and realise, I don't remember ANY music at all except for the end credits music.
Now one could say that the music was so boring and understated that I completely glossed over it or one could say that it merged and flowed with the action on screen so perfectly that you don't even notice the music.
I don't know which would be more accurate, I just find it really odd that I can't remember any music

I think the Cobra Eels mask works better for Snake Eyes than the sculpted mouth thing they used. Snake Eyes would have been awesome with the Eels helmet.
I can't warm up to the mouth. I don't understand what they were going for. His outfit has sculpted muscles, veins, nose & mouth. It didn't look like an outfit, instead it looked like his skin is supposed to be all black. It was very distracting. I just don't understand it at all. Every time I see him I'm like "WTF were they going for here?"
The movie felt like the 80's cartoon came to life. They succeeded in recreating the feeling I had when I was little in the 80's watching the cartoon. I don't know how they did it but it was really cool.
I also don't understand why they matched Cobra Commander's voice to the original but totally screwed up Destro's voice.
