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.
