I Can’t Wait: Chick 2′s Turn to Geek Out

Chick 2 says:

Okay, I got totally geeked out by a trailer that aired during the Super Bowl, so I guess I have to own up to it.  I am totally stoked about…

G.I.Joe: Rise of Cobra.

Yes, really.  I didn’t have the Barbie collection growing up (that was Chick 1), I had the G.I.Joe collection.  And what a collection it was.  I missed the 12 inch doll era, but did get in before the double-action kung-fu grip.  I know to someone out there, that means something.  The casting looks pretty decent as well – Dennis Quaid as General Hawk (one of the originals), Channing Tatum, and Sienna Miller.  I am most excited about Ray Park as Snake Eyes because he is a true martial artist that kicks ass.  My only reservation in casting would be Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Cobra Commander.  Nothing against Gordon-Levitt, but I just don’t see it.  I’m sure it will be your basic summer, Stephen Sommers-directed, kid’s movie, but it should be fun to see my childhood on the big screen.  It’s about time.

Here’s hoping it’s better than Scooby-Doo.
