Seeing how every single person in the free world loved it and only a small, inconsequential, and jaded group of fan-boys hated it; where does GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra rank on your personal list of all time favorite films? Does it crack the top ten? Is it your new favorite?
Me personally? I rank it higher than Casablanca, Citizen Kane, The Wizard of Oz, and Pootie Tang. I know I said some nasty things but I thought about it and I take everything back. All the people who enjoyed ROC were right and I pray that they forgive us feeble minded people who didn't like it and for speaking out of turn. I mean gosh darn it, seeing Snake-Eyes and Duke on-screen is as close to a religous experience as one can get.
I already heard rumors that it's tracking to outgross both Titanic and The Dark Knight in two weeks due to the awesome word of mouth and raving reviews. Chances are it'll stay in theatres until the sequel comes out in 2011, even though it'll be released on DVD this December where I'm sure it'll shatter all previous DVD sales. My amish neighbors in Lancaster County told me they're breaking their vows and buying a blu-ray player and 50 inch plasma screen just so they can watch the majestic, jaw dropping, spectacle that is The Rise of Cobra. Even as we speak, The Julliard School is making viewing ROC a prerequisite for all students attending and the Smithsonian has requested the master reel of film so that it can be displayed next to other precious American treasures.
So with all of that, where does ROC rank on your top movies of all time?

Sarcasm-free, I easily put it ahead of Citizen Kane. My wife and I still laugh about falling asleep trying to watch that movie one night.
But while I liked RoC, it is still far behind Clear and Present Danger and My Cousin Vinny on my list.

However if I were to take this thread seriously it's probably my third favorite movie. I'll watch it a lot.

Not at all. This movie does not make my top 10.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I think this movie ranks just below "Ice Pirates" starring Robert Urich but just ahead of "Harry and the Henderson's" staring the really tall man who also played the alien in "Predator."
