I'm hoping for the best but expecting the worse.

Hey, I'm ok with explosions.
And I'll admit I like the show "In Living Color" where Shawn and Marlon played two teens that tried to act like tough guys where they'd say "I'll go Milli Vanilli on your ass! That's where some other guy beats you up and I take all the credit!" Oh God, I miss that show...

Hopefully the good will out weigh the bad. But I don't like Scarlett in all black.

Aint saying nutty until I see the trailor. I have a hunch that the trailor will be released soon in apple.com as I've noticed that the trailor for the new release theater are within 6 months before its orginal street date release.

Secondly, although I'm supporting the movie for the time being judging a movie by it's trailer alone is as idiotic as judging it before it gets released. No one knows for CERTAIN how the actual movie will turn out, AND even THEN some will love it, while some hate it.
Here's one for the nay sayers....Trailers often compile the best and most exciting scenes from the movie, which can make you think that, that's how the movie will be as a whole. That's obviously very often not always the case. The trailer could also suck while the movie turns out to be good. Either way, regardless of what's seen or heard until you actually SEE the movie all of this preemptive speculation is nothing more then assumption.

1.) Marlon Wayans ain't Ripcord.
2.) Duke wasn't engaged to marry the Baroness. And he also left her at the altar?? Please.
3.) Channing Tatum is an anti-war idiot. Why is he playing Duke?
4.) Snake Eyes is the only guy who is supposed to wear a matte-black uniform and webgear. Why is the entire Joe and Cobra line-up wearing Snake Eyes' distinct uniform and equipment?
5.) Breaker's name isn't Mohammed Akbar. He is a southern guy from Tennessee.
6.) Where is Destro's iconic silver mask?
7.) Snake Eyes is from France? Oooooooooook.
8.) Vipers wearing Snake Eyes' uniform? Pleeeeeeease!!!
Baroness and General Hawk seem to be the only two characters they got right. I might say Scarlett is right, but she is wearing Snake Eyes' uniform, just like the rest of the people in this entire movie.
I've said this once, and I will say it again.
This movie has very little in common with GI Joe.
The idiots in charge of this disaster should have taken a page from Jon Favreau when he created the Iron Man movie.
Favreau is a genius because he took the comic book hero, and made a film that kept virtually all concepts of the comic intact.
This new "GI Joe" movie does the exact opposite.
Imagine that Favreau created the Iron Man movie with the following plot:
Tony Stark is an 89 year old man who does not have any money, and prefers to spend his time re-building DVD players instead of Iron suits. The little bit of money that he does have comes from his job as a grave digger. He was engaged to marry the girl who plays "Iron Monger," but decided to leave her at the altar. Incidentally, Iron Monger is a gigantic trash compactor that seeks to help the people of Bangor, Maine. She is not a menacing super-robot, nor does she seek to corner the world through technological terror.
Do you understand why I am angry at the stupid GI Joe movie now?

Is marlon wayans really the worst part of what we have seen so far? His character will suck cus he's the annoying side kick, and annoying side kicks suck. Not cus He's African American. I'm from Alabama, and I can say some of the guys on here say some pretty back handed racist stuff about Ripcord being black. Who cares? It's not like ripcord as a character was really that much in the spot light in the first place.
This movie will suck because movies of this nature suck in general, and are made for common Idiots. I'm an adult now, and I enjoy art on the level that adults do.
