G.I. Joe Retaliation Already looks better than the first film just from the still images. Lets face it, G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra was pretty bad. It was cartoonish in a way that was even worse than the actual cartoon of the 1980s. However, the second film, G.I. Joe Retaliation, just keeps getting my… read more

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but … I can’t wait for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. While I’m positive I’ll walk away from the film going, “Blast it! Duped again!” these trailers have completely sucked me in. Despite the fact that it obviously has a lot of ties to the cliffhanger ending of G.I.… read more
