G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra

guide2wdw

Not a whole lot happened this week of monumental notice. Though some specific careers may have been seriously altered and some new film trends could be in the making, there was nothing that aims to revolutionize the whole industry as we saw last week. That’s why this week’s Reject Recap is a bit more populated with lists than usual (there are also more videos, but they’re not among the ten). But they’re mighty fine lists that will have you thinking and discussing and debating. And not just our own, of course. As usual, we also looked outside the FSR borders for great film-related (and sometimes TV-related) pieces elsewhere. If you see something you think should be included in the Recap, please email me.  In addition to catching up with us and the other movie blogs here, be sure to check out the continued outpouring of great SXSW coverage we’ve been posting even as the film fest itself is over. Oh, and I highly recommend this week’s brilliantly spot-on Film Jockeys strip on “The Life Cycle of a Film Fan,” which should hit close to home for many of you. Now without further ado… Start your weekend right after the jump.

Rob Hunter loves movies. He also loves working as Roger Thornhill’s personal drycleaner… between the dust-ups and the crop dusters, Thornhill has lots of suits in need of cleaning. These two joys come together in the form of cash money payments that he receives every week and immediately uses to buy more DVDs. This week… North By Northwest, GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Aliens In The Attic, and more!

Neil pretty much hit the nail on the head with his review, but we figure ‘G.I. Joe’s’ big enough to warrant an affirmation: Ignore the renewed bad buzz: The movie’s a lot of fun.

Over the course of the past several months, there has been a lot of talk about G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Well, it is time to stop all the rumoring and badmouthing and start talking about a film that, in a very basic way, is good.

If you think I have something positive to say about this abomination known as “The Doctor” I’m going to punch some sense into you.

Does it matter that Transformers 2 is probably this summer’s worst movie? Sadly, no. It’s little more than crassly commercialized cinematic excess, but still some viewers and reviewers have latched blindly on to Bay’s teats as if they expect awesome-flavored milk to start splashing against their tongue. And yes, I am talking about all of FSR’s head honchos…

A new extended TV trailer and several new character posters have begun to emerge today for Paramount’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. And I stand by my assessment that this film could very well turn out to be fun.

Questioning why we’re still on the air? So are we. We think it has something to do with this letter we got in the mail citing “gross negligence” and telling us to “desist.” We love desisting!

So apparently not only the marketing materials have been getting blasted, but G.I. Joe itself isn’t testing well. Feel free to make a joke about knowing being half the battle.

Paramount just released several new G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra images into the wild. You’d think they’d send them out with more protection than electric drills and bad wigs right?
