  1. And the fact that THIS is the best you've seen in a while...does that make it less pathetic...or more?
  2. I knew Clintonomics would catch up with us in the end...
  3. Still weaksauce, but at least a real situation. At least it wasn't phoned in like the last week of "Rock Star 2" gags on the Shortpacked website...
  4. Yes, I second this. Lest we forget amongst our many complaints that Hasbro has been quite transparent with fans as to the status of their various lines, the movies, etc. Let's commend them on some level and leave most of the bashing aside, or we may end up alienating the hand that feeds us (so to speak). Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing the film or Hasbro in general...I'm just saying that their press release didn't really address what most of the furor amongst fans is based on. Bottom line is: G.I. Joe has always been about American soldiers protecting American interests and promoting American values within it's "fantasy." If they wanted to get away from that, they should make the movie "Action Force" and market it as the overseas line was done. BTW, I stand by my "laughable U.N." statement. The fact that their hasn't been a World War since WWI has much more to do with the U.S. being the only true superpower in recent history than anything the U.N. has done. If the U.S. pulled out of the U.N. that would basically be the end of any effectiveness that organization has; but I understand that we need to stay there with our veto power if only to keep the anti-semitic nations from passing their many, many resolutions against Israel. #US1# I would prefer Hawk to Duke in the film, but ever since the cartoon made Duke the leader of G.I. Joe in the early seasons, we've kind of been stuck with him in other lines/media. Not that big a deal. If this team is really going for the international bend that we've been hearing about, I wouldn't be surprised to see characters like Big Ben or Daina from the Oktober Guard. Even Jinx, but retconned to be a Japanese national as opposed to an American of Japanese descent. But it's all speculation at this point. At least with Stephen Sommers at the helm we're guaranteed a movie at LEAST as good as "The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen." @hmmm@
  5. I like how they sidestepped any of the real complaints. "The name “G.I. Joe” will always be synonymous with bravery and heroism." Uh...yes, but will it be about "Real American Heroes"? "The G.I. Joe team will not be based in Brussels. Instead, they will be based out of the “Pit” as they were throughout the 1980s comic book series." Riiiiight...but will the "Pit" be based in the United States, or in another country? And will the team be answerable to the Pentagon, or be under the auspices of the laughable U.N. in order to take that unfortunate "American" connection out? Ah, Hollywood. Why even make G.I. Joe, when it's clear you'd much rather make "Socialist Steve" so as not to offend the tender sensibilities of the International market?
