    I still think a GI Joe movie will be harder to pull off without being silly. I can see Cobra being done right since they're a loose knit group of individuals, but the Joe team has too many actual characters to be a legitimate military group. I hope they pull it off though.

    I really have no hope for the GI Joe. You just know that Snake-Eyes will talk and wear his mask all of five minutes for the very end of the movie.

    May God help us. May God help us.

    "GI Joe is the nickname for the world's cool, XTREME, UN-sponsored, non-violent group. It's purpose- to defend human freedom when the Congress says ok, by yelling at Cobra, an extremist group determined to defend themselves by using non-war criminal actions."

    I love GI Joe - but I honestly can't see how they can make a "true" joe movie without it being lame.

    Let's face it the charcters are just either too "kidy" for an adult audiance or you make them a bit too much like something out of the war on terror.


    As disapointing as it might first seem I'd sooner go with a "Snakes-Eyes" movie - focusing on a whole shit load of ninja comando action without having to worry about trying to establish a credable cobra foe.

    I think this movie could work and be fun, even with the over the top characters.

    Why? Because two of my favorite movies are full of these characters: Predator and Aliens. The two military groups in those movies were a bunch of over the top badasses and they were both fun movies. I can only hope GIJoe can be treated with the same intelligence as those movies and not have it come out like AVP.

    For those that have not seen AVP, don't. You would be better off getting a copy of Aliens and a copy of Predator and play them on two TVs next to each other at the same time.

    If they did it based more on the comic then the movie I think it would have a chance. lets face it, G.I. Joe really had even worse writing then G1 Transformers.

    Though if they follow the cartoon we all already know the plot.

    Cobra builds giant death machine. It explodes. Parts end up around the world. Joes and Cobra split up in to three teams and go to the Jungle/Desert, the Artic, and the bottom of the Ocean. Cobra manages to rebuild machine even though Joes got one part, and only one part before them by jury rigging or stealing another similiar part elsewhere. They try to destroy the world since they haven't gotten paid, Joes break in and blow up machine as Cobra retreats. Duke makes a bad joke and we all laugh:)

    The movie has to be Rated R and use the whole Terrorist thing to the full extreme to be taken seriously...............oh and have the GIJOE The Animated Movie Theme song in the movie as well, with all the fireworks and CO-Braaaa, CO-BRAAA!!!

    I can see that happening once we get two sequels of each franchise. Probably in 2015
