GI Joe Retaliation trailer… wait, this didn’t come out yet?

I guess that it hasn’t: if it had, I… all right, ALL RIGHT, I admit that I would have gone to see it.

 

 

I’m not proud to admit it.  But for some reason I still thought that it came out last year.

So, the GI JOE series is now on NetFlix.

On the one hand, it’s an integral part of my childhood. On the other hand, I am terrified at how much the animation probably sucks.

On the gripping hand, I mostly wanted to watch this again:

Which is, of course, from the movie.

GI JOE: Retaliation trailer.

OK.  OK.  I know what you’re going to say.  I really and truly do.  I would, in fact, probably say that myself.  But just watch it until the end, and when you’re done, you will hopefully understand why this may be a thing.

Movie of the Week: GI Joe.

Yes, I ripped G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra up and down the length of Twitter a couple of days ago.

So?

So we replace Bottle Shock with it as Movie of the Week. Because… well, because it was as close as you can get to the animated show without, you know, animating it.

If I had the traffic, this would be an open thread.

I got nothing, sorry. Aside from the irony of realizing that 90% of my at-the-time objections to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra were based around my feeling like I was watching a live-action cartoon. Which was sort of the point, yes.

I think that I’m going to go watch the GI Joe movie now.

I wasn’t going to spend twenty bucks to see G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra – fairly or unfairly, the movie struck me as the director’s desire to make a movie about his three or four favorite action figures as a kid – but a buck rental was doable, and done.

Besides, today’s the aftermath.

New ‘GI JOE’ footage.

And to answer his question… the reason why they bothered getting the licenses to this series and not E-Swat is because the director’s favorite GI JOE action figures as a child were clearly Baroness, Storm Shadow, and Snake Eyes.  That’s why they’re recognizable in the movie, even when nobody else is.

Was that snide?  That may have been snide.

Yo Joe?

OK, here’s the problem. This is what I want:

And this is what they’re going to give me:

…the question is, is this going to be close enough? It looks promising, but that’s no guarantee. There’s also the problem that, between Iron Man, The Dark Knight, and Kung Fu Panda I’m kind of overdrawn at the movie karma bank right now.  So do I really have the right to fanboy, here?
