I just watched G.I. Joe the movie on Blu-Ray tonight. I am still a bit overwhelmed. But, all I could think about during the entire movie was how so many of the characters were so utterly different than their original cartoon predecessors. As cartoons, G.I. Joe was a more realistic concept and delivery of a show. However, as live action movies, the Transformers movies are much more realistic and believable. I have to thank Bay, Speilberg and the writers for doing such excellent work on our Transformers and being loyal (at least) to the characters we love.
