it would have been cool for the costume dept to spend a few more seconds looking up the actual location of the tatoos.....not on the shoulder I recall and not readily visible

I've read up on those tatoos, and apparently in some comics they were there, and others they were in some other place like the wrist maybe, I dunno.  I give them props for staying that close to the source though, compared to some other 80's remakes we've seen last summer that starts with a "T" and ends with a "f-u bay!"  :)  

I didn't expect the costumes to really be THAT close to the originals though!

Channing Tatum?

Couldn't they at least gotten a man?

I'm old school. GI Joe to me will always be the original action figure I had as a kid, in like 1972. The guy with the Kung Fu grip.   :lol:

Yeah, the newer GI Joes that were like 8 inches tall I don't even consider GI Joe. I had the old school 12" ones and the foot lockers to keep them and the small accessories in. My  GI Joes would kick my sister's Ken doll's butt and take Barbie out.

I was of the 80's generation of Joes where all the cool characters came out of.  Those guys were part of the inspiration (along with Top Gun, hehe) that made me want to join the Army.  
About the movie:  Why do people always try to get models to act?  And espically....why do people try to get models to act like SOLDIERS???  I've never met a soldier who could model, but I know some who could act really well.  (You know the ones, that full-of-bs private).  

Anywho, this movie supposedly has $170m budget, 2m more than Transformers.  I wonder if it will show?

LMAO at Marlan Wayans playing a main character. That was hilarious. The only guy I knew was the actor playing the U.S. President. And I don't even remember what I've seen him in. I don't know which will come out the bigger bomb at the box office. This or Pearl Harbor. I have been wrong before. I thought Transformers was gonna suck because Michael Bay was making it but it actually turned out pretty decent. Regardless, I'll wait for this to come out on DVD.

I still thought Transformers wasn't that good, and it is also because of Michael Bay. It received the "Michael Bay Treatment." Think we need to shorten that, they Michael Bayed it, there, that sounds ok, lol.

I agree Mustang.  Much of it was ok for a certian type of audience, but many of the things could've been better.  I'd say he "Bayed it up."  ILM, on the other hand, did a fantastic job with what they did work with.

ILM almost ALWAYS does a great job. Those guys are not special effects masters, they use the force...

Yah, I think the whole ninja coolness factor ended for me when i got out of elementary. Those pics just look gimmicky to me...

Ninja coolness factor never ends! Especially when the ninja is well done. Where are these Snake Eyes pics coming from anyway?

Apparently, Larry Hama, the guy who wrote all the good comics and is apparently a consultant to the film, released them

OH heck yeah!  I'm liking this movie more now lol.  I just watched an interview with the angels in the outfield kid, aka cobra commander, and he said it's a total detatchment from reality, which can be good for some, bad for others, but at least it's not another false drama about the military trying to be "real" like we're so used to seeing.

Oh, did some reading up, apparently they got a Duke pic floating around somewhere, but Paramount took it off the site I visited.

Ah, I think you will just drown in gimmicks if you watch this movie.

It's kind of sad, the last movie I remember seeing an actual bad-ass looking female lead was Terminator 2, and that was like 17 years ago, sad isn't it? Now-a-days it seems they cast them based on what horny 15 year-olds want to see. I'm sorry, but if some 95 pound girl that spends more time brushing her hair than practicing fighting skills throws a punch at me, I'm just gonna let her hit me because I know it's not going to hurt...

And instead of making armor that would actually realistically distribute the force of impacts, let's section it off making sure the breasts are individual so you can get the full shape of them, oh yah, that sounds like the way to go...

Hey, I'm all for looking at hot girls, but not when I'm trying to believe in a movie I'm watching. But then again, GI Joe doesn't seem like it's trying for that anyhow, lol, I'm just taking this far too seriously...

I have a bad feeling about this movie. Like Dolph-Lundgren-As-He-Man kinda bad feeling...  :rolleyes:

BTW, not being familiar with G.I. Joe, didn't they have the usual action toy thingie where every piece had a spring-powered plastic missile attached to it? Now that would be really fun in a movie: "Spoinggggg!" :rofl:

This movie isn't supposed to be a deep, oscar winning drama.  It's pure escapism (did i spell that right? lol).  I seriously doubt there will be realistic tactics or theories on war on par with Saving Private Ryan or BHD.  I, for one, have been dying to see a good, fun, "America, $#%& Yeah!" kind of movie, and this is about as close as I'll get I'm affraid.  
  It would be nice if they could stick more to the cartoon, but things have got to change I guess.

Um, yah, I understand that, but you can do that perfectly fine without filling the movie full of gimmicks. So far everything that has been revealed and shown about the movie have been just one gimmick after the other. The younger hipper cast, snake eyes and his tacticool ninja outfit, and now the red head bimbo in typical b-action movie full body outfit that looks like it'll take longer to get into it than it would to complete the mission...

There are plenty of movies that I have enjoyed that was not realistic nor did they take themselves too seriously, but was still full of innovation and clever ideas instead of just opening the book of bad overused gimmicks to get their ideas.

But that's just my opinion, it works for some people, maybe I'll watch it as a rental... if someone else pays for it, lol. :-P
