Very disappointed with the G.I.Joe Rise of Cobra DVD option


Recommended Posts

I rarely buy DVDs but when I do it is typically comic book movies. And I usually spring for the best version I can get (i.e. Director's cut, 6 hours of special features--the more the merrier).


Seeing the GI JOE Rise of Cobra DVD is a supreme disappointment.


I realize Hasbro will probably release a mega-DVD again in 4 or 5 months, but this is absurd.


2 disc Dvd only contains the movie, the making of GI JOE, and some special effects features? Give me a break. Oh, but how could I forget the coveted "Digital copy". yeah, i will get right on using that one, straight away.


So instead of spending $25 (Target) or $22 (Walmart), I went to the 14.99 special and regular DVD.


Maybe the Blu=Ray has tons of features and this is how movie company's will make us switch?

You nailed it right there.


I agree, the digital coppy gimmick is a complete joke. This is not limited to the GI Joe DVD either. I bought the Dark Knight 2 disk and was blown away by how unspecial the special features were. The days when you could get a 2 disk DVD with a movie and a couple of special featurs on one disk and then another disk with nothing but special features are over. They want you to switch to Blu-Ray and this is how they're gonna do it.

no matter what version you get the movie will still suck nuts ;)


No, HE nailed it right here.

Agreed. the movie was garbage and I can't attack it enough. It lacked a coherent plot, had terrible acting, and ps1 level cgi. This film wasn't fit to be a direct to video.


That said, it's true they want everyone on Blue Ray. Personally i'm hoping more and more more folks go for stuff like netflix's direct downloads.
