So I am sitting in the Hotel here in Ft. Worthless, and just picked up the USA Today and this was in the Life section. Winners and Losers of the summer "remake" movies.
Star Trek, Transformers, and GI Joe. This is what they said about RoC "POPULAR SOURCE MATERIAL: the first "GI Joe-Action Soldier" hit shelves in 1964 and has been one of Hasbro's most popular toys.
"BOX OFFICE $98.8 million domestically, $66.2 million worldwide.
CRITICAL PERCEPTION: Better than expected, considering that Paramount Pictures did not screen the movie for mainstream audiences. About 38% of critics recommended the movie.
WAS IT WORTH IT?: For all the media criticism before the film opened, Joe acquitted himself well. "I don't think the toy sold the movie, but it didn't need to,"says Steve Mason, box-office analyst for, among others, the Reelz network. "It sold itself for what it was: a solid action movie. I think they've got a franchise on their hands."
Interesting I thought.

I still haven't seen the movie. I've sinned against the brand. :(

C.I.A.D.-Don't beat yourself up, I have not gone to see it either. Not b/c I'm boycotting it or anything, just lazy I guess.
