    I saw this over on Hisstank.com

    the GI Joe movie received much better feedback than Transformers in test screenings, for what it's worth.

    Where do people get this info? I searched Google & couldn't find anything. Is it real or do they just make it up???:confused:

    I agree with this theory!
    Sounds plausible!

    Hmmm, this completely goes against what I've heard, which is that GI Joe is not getting the greatest feedback. And TF2 is being expected to pull in huge numbers.

    I've not seen this anywhere either, nor do I believe it regardless.

    Maybe the source meant 'better feedback' as in 'more usable feedback'? Because I can already tell 20 things from the GI Joe trailer alone that could use HUGE improvement..

    But I'm biased. :p

    gi joe equals fail.

    im sorry i am for all seeing different movies whether i like the chain or not, like star trek, but seeing the trailers for gi joe, yikes. reminds me of the of the street fighter movie and how they look in the costumes, looks good in a game or comic but on real ppl, no thanks.

    if that was relevant, then i'd agree with you. my point was that I have heard GI Joe is getting pretty bad feedback, which more than likely does equal being a bad movie. If TF2 was getting the same (or worse) feedback, it would not be projected to pull in the numbers that it is.

    Would This be the "Article" You are referring to?: "Negativity Creeping In"?

    I honestly don't know how G.I. Joe could be better recieved than Revenge of the Fallen. This reads as Highly Illogical.

    Yeah, that's the one. I want the GI Joe movie to do as well as Transformers. I'm a big fan of both. But as I was reading that I had one of those WTF? moments. I was hoping to find out if there was an actual source to go with that comment.

    That goes against pretty much everything that has been leaking out

    IE

    TF2 testing even better than TF1 and GI Joe according to early buzz is a complete and utter disaster
