G.I Joe Retaliation Movie Trailer: Are You Kidding Me?

I originally wanted to predict everyone’s future for this year by writing some horoscopes for 2012 but after I realized there are about a dozen horoscopes out there, I changed my mind πŸ˜† and decided to write about the trailer of the upcoming G.I Joe: Retaliation movie. I know it sounds crazy that I am writing about movies, but I did mention it is going to be one hell of a movie year for me so why not?

First of all, I did watch G.I Joe: The Rise of CobraΒ because I’m a sucker for Channing Tatum and I am pretty sure My Man will want to watch the sequel. I do not know the plot of G.I Joe: Retaliation but from the trailer, it seems the retaliation comes after the Joe program closed andΒ most of the Joe’s are assassinated except for Duke (Tatum), a new chick, and The Rock…

Wait. The Rock is on G.I Joe? That can’t be right, can it?Β I don’t know, it feels odd… But to add to that, if you watch the end part of the trailer, you’d find that… Bruce Willis is on it too! WTH! Β Not that I have anything against them, just that them being Joe’s feels a little awkward… And where the heck is Rip?

But if there is a cool thing on the trailer, I’ve got to say it has got to be the ninjas fighting and hanging on the cliff. Now that is petty awesome. You don’t see that every day. I’m looking forward to that. If you did not notice it, go ahead and watch the trailer again, it’s pretty cool. πŸ˜€

Speaking of ninja’s, why is Storm Shadow in the sequel? Isn’t he supposed to be shredded and frozen in the Arctic? Ugh. Β This is probably one reason why I do not like movies. I like the people who I know are dead to be dead. Can’t anything be relied on in this world anymore?

But in the end, I guess I am going to watch this movie (how can you resist Channing?) and even if I end up whining over the eventual silliness of the plot and why Rip is absent and Storm Shadow present, I am guessing I will still have a grand time watching this with My Man and possibly my sisters around June or July when it comes out (and this is a new high for me, complaining about a movie even before it comes out :lol:).

How about you? Think you’d waste money on this one or not?

  1. the movie’s trailer is indeed bad-ass! especially that ninja-cliffhanger scene. I like the tone of the cinematography, much more realistic and mas gritty (its certainly not a Stephen Sommers style, I guess they changed director). You noticed Rip was gone? so as the Cobra guy played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. hehe. maybe the reason was those characters are bad, underdeveloped, one dimensional, predictable, forgettable. Snake eyes and storm Shadow was well-played so bumalik cla. hahaha. The Rock and Bruce Willis is a great addition, makes this move more promising.

    The take: I’ll wait for the DVD! Mag.aIMAX ako sa The Dark Knight Rises. kya the following week.

    • the music on the trailer was killer, i forgot to mention that on my post. i like joseph gordon-levitt. maybe he’s still there somewhere kasi siya yung kalaban diba? idk, di na ko umabot sa g.i joe cartoons. i like snake eyes. silence vow? that’s cool. i’m not sure about the addition of the rock and bruce willis. i feel weird about them… and i’m not going to watch the dark knight rises πŸ˜†

      • Whaa You should watch the Dark Knight Rises! back to back silang lalabas. mas magugustuhan yun ng The Man mo. hehe. yeah really nice musical too there. May seven months nalang pala ako para maghanap ng kasama manuod ng TDKR. hehe.

        • i don’t like batman πŸ˜• but you are right, my man would want to watch it and if i am keeping my new year list i should watch it too. oh well, we’ll see, wish me luck πŸ˜†

  2. Before I was anything else, I was a G.I. Joe geek. But I was very disappointed with the Rise of Cobra, and so are the rest of the G.I. Joe fans. The crux of that disappointment is actually Ripcord, and his relationship with Scarlet (Scarlet is Snake Eyes’ beau since the inception of G.I. Joe). So, that’s why he has to go.

    The Rock playing as Road Block is actually spot on (except the part where Road Block is a black dude), since his character is a heavy weapons specialist.

    As to why Storm Shadow is alive? He’s a ninja. No one can kill a ninja. Everyone knows that.

    • oh yeah? i did not know that. di ko na inabutan ang cartoons version but i think it’s cool if snake eyes was with scarlet. i wonder how they make it work since he does not talk? i did no see scarlet on the trailer, is she on the sequel too? i love the ninja bit. it makes sense now. πŸ˜€ thank you for the enlightening comment. i think you’re a cool g.i joe geek. πŸ™‚

      • How did Scarlet and Snake Eyes make it work? Well, Snake Eyes is a ninja. A ninja can make everything work. Everyone knows that.

        Scarlet’s not in the sequel, which is a shame because I like the actress (Rachel Nichols). I think it’s because the producer is her ex-husband.

        • you know i am now wondering if the country’s problem can be solved if we had a ninja for a president. πŸ˜† you know you give such interesting info. so the producer’s her ex huh? now that is something to think about πŸ˜€

  3. I saw the trailer of this one when we saw MI. I haven’t seen the first movie, which now reminds me I should put it on the Netflix queue.

    I may not spend money on this. I better scope out Tatum, is he the one in one of the chix flix movie?

    • i am more excited for sherlock homes too! i was mad it did not finish number one on holiday box office! but i love robert downey jr. me thinks he is cool. all my sisters love him. πŸ™‚
