g.i.joe

 

that was some quality reagan era entertainment and merchandising, worked inextricably into my childlhood... or whatnot

 

Said Taghmaoui was dope in La haine (Hate) 1995.. something i consider a masterpiece

I'm sorry but am I the only one who thinks these outfits look flat out bad? Like doom the movie bad? Oh well, I was never much of a GI Joe fan to begin with, I was always in the transformers/ghostbusters camp of children's cartoons.

It's being directed by the man who brought us Deep Rising, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and Van Helsing, so I don't care how good those images look.

Marlon effing Wayans? Not a chance in hell I'll see this movie.

Yeah, that's pretty much a the worst omen you could conceive of (aside from Pauly Shore or Carrot Top).

Eh, this looks like another "DOOM" movie to me. The outfits look soo "X-MEN" meets "DOOM" cliche to me.

 

The black concept is tired people. Hot-Rod Red is where it's at now people.

 

Although this oufit does look pretty bad-ass:

Still tho... this looks like a movie that's going to cater to the kiddies. I'm sick of kiddie targeted franchise revival movies (ie: Tranformers).

 

Gah! Dark Knight... come out already!

I mean you can get away with transformers because who doesn't like to see huge robots fighting & blowing things up...but this just looks stupid. I wonder though...at the end will there be a PSA saying not to play by downed electrical wires? or to wear sunscreen while laying at the beach? because knowing is half the battle after all isn't it. and Dennis Quaid looks like a NIPPLE!!! they should have at least gotten kurt russel.

I could be TOTALLY wrong, but I have a feeling this movie will be extremely composited so it's not supposed to feel filmic like Transformers. I'm guessing it may be closer to Speed Racer, Aeon Flux, and Sky Captain where it's a bunch of 3D porn with greenscreen-shot actors.

 

 

BUT if it's shot to look real and gritty, then these Joe outfits are a joke.

there's certainly a chance of that being the case....even so I think by them taking such a departure from the original art direction(i.e. the uniforms)of the cartoon indicates that this movie is going to be weak. & what no Sgt. Slaughter ???

no offense taken - i just use it cause its old skool. I was always a transformers fan - but who wasn't?

 

I used to think gobots were dumb, but after watching so often I kinda started liking them.

 

with some better artists and dialouge I think the GoBots woulda been more cooler.

hey, the original transformers cartoon was pretty damn awful, as were most cartoons of that era. i bought the entire series on dvd, and laughed my ass off over how bad it was. can't help but be a fan tho. nostalgia's a powerful thing.
