‘G.I. Joe’ 2: Cobra Strikes Back! (Movie Review)

2009 saw the release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.  While that film was a financial success and has its fans, it did not quite set the world on fire in the same way that Transformers, the other Hasbro toy-based movie franchise did.  The consensus seems to be that it was too campy for […]

GI JOE: Retaliation Trailer – Round 2

I know I wasn’t the only person bummed that GI JOE: Retaliation was abruptly moved a whole 9 months later from its original June 2012 release date all the way to this March, for a 3D post-conversion no less (with plenty of rumors surrounding other behind the scenes fiddling).  Regardless, the newest trailer for the […]

Gregg’s Reflection on G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

I still remember the event well.  I was about four or five years old.  The year was 1982.  I was with my parents at a local mall and we took a stroll through Sears.  There, in front of me, was my very first exposure to G.I. Joe action figures.  My mom said I could have […]

Brian’s Delicious DLP Screening of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Well I said I would not do it, but I did!  I got my hopes up before seeing G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.  Was I disappointed?  Heck no!  I sat there like a carefree kid in a candy store waiting for the next trip down memory lane as I saw all the action figures […]

Ricki’s Midnight Screening of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

First off, the studio sent a bunch of stuff to hand out on opening night.  Our theater just had four posters so they had four trivia questions for the crowd.  I was the first one to answer the second question which was “what is Storm Shadow’s real first name?”  The answer is Tommy.  So I […]
