A Couple More G.I. Joe TV Spots

Posted by G-Man (30222 posts) - - Show Bio

I have been getting a lot of G.I. Joe lately (more on that later today).  The movie is less than a month away.  The anticipation has been like a roller coaster ride.  Despite all the...questionable content we've seen, I am still trying to hold onto the hope that it won't be a terribly horrible film.  I know a lot have already written it off.  The nostalgic part of me is hoping that there is still...hope.  This is pretty strange considering I usually go into movies with low expectations and later get surprised.  With this, I'm trying to maintain some sort of expectation.  So as I've been hearing over and over again the last couple days, "Yo Joe!"  Here's a couple TV spots:

I STILL THINK THIS MOVIE IS GOING 2 SUCK. YOU WOULD THINK THAT G.I. JOE WOULD BE AN EASIER MOVIE TO ADAPT INTO A FILM THAN TRANSFORMERS. BOY I WAS WRONG. I DIDNT KNOW THAT G. I JOE WAS THE IRON MEN? WHEN I FIRST SAW IT I ALREADY KNEW....I HOPE THOSE SUITS AREN'T IN THE WHOLE MOVIE... I SAW THE COBRA COMMANDER DOLL/FIGURE..OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY COULD JUST PUT ON A REGULAR HELMET OR PUT 2 HOLES IN A RAG TO PUT ON HIM??? I WONDER IF G.I. JOE IS GOING TO BE WORSE THE DRAGONBALL.................?

Euck. Not possible to make this into a film conversion without it sucking. It's a comic, and it's a toy series. It just cannot be translated properly.

Its a concept. Not just a toy or a cartoon.
I grew up with the REAL Gi JOes 12' Kung Fu Grip and  all. Not the little shit toys.
But i think it looks fun.

Ok that last tv spot was badass, maybe cause it had Kid Rock " American Badass" playing in the background.

From what I heard they made Cobra Commander & The Baroness brother & sister. I don't know why hollywood always has to make some of these comic characters siblings like Emma Frost & Silverfox. Wasn't really necessary for them to do that.

As long as it's better than wolverine I'll be happy.

I'm still going to see this movie, just because I don't write movies off just because of the previews and was I the only one who liked Dragon Ball? (Probably shouldn't have asked that)

@War Killer:
I liked it even though I never seen it.

Gonna see this, but I know that the critics are going to thrash it like they did Transformers 2.

I have some series doubts about this movie, but I will probably see it in theaters anyway. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. My real grips with the movie are the character choices. Like taking Ripcord and changing him completely, he's not longer a parachutist, he's a pilot? Not to mention the fact he's not black, or well not supposed to be. They have tons of Joes they could have used intstead, none of them pilots, so why not just make up a new character? That's one thing I like about established comics or what not getting a movie, the possibility of new characters. No Roadblock one of the most liked Joes. No Shipwreck? No Gung-ho? Also why did they make Duke a Lieutenant when he was good as a Sergeant. Oh well I won't hold my breath of it being good, but then again you never know, it might be worth the price.
