I saw GI Joe: Retaliation on opening day and decided to post about it. I don't want to ruin it for anyone, so I'm going to focus on the freedies I picked up. I saw online that they were handing out specially packaged 3D glasses, so I took an old pair with me so I could keep these sealed. Not that they will ever be worth anything. Just a fun keep sake.
They were also giving out these posters in the lobby. The bad side features an advertisement to per-order the Blu-Ray at Walmart. The poster is printed in black, white, and gray with a few red highlights. The poster shows off most of the characters from the movie.
I won't spoil the movie, but I did enjoy it. I felt it was more true to the spirit and story of the GI Joe comics. It's nice to have Cobra Commander look like Cobra Commander. The ninja battle on the mountain was very cool. I did find the 3D to be kind of annoying at times. There were a lot of scenes were part of the shot was blocked by someone's shoulder or a beam and it was weird having these objects feel so close to me. It really is a shame they wasted so many important characters in the first movie. I'm hoping for a third.
Love that poster Buzz!I'm not one to go see a film as soon as it releases but i will go soon to catch this one.I know ROC wasn't the best but it was still cool to have a live action G.I. Joe film.The same with this film.I get a kick out of all the cardboard cut outs and signs at local department stores advertising it.It really is a dream come true for Joe fans.ReplyDelete
Going to go see this on my Birthday on Monday and I can not wait!ReplyDelete
Whenever they release a twopack on DVD then I will see both.ReplyDelete
I am happy to hear that this film is closer to the comics. I was very disappointed in the first film. I'm also loving your poster. I'll have to see if there are any more left when I get to the movies.ReplyDelete
Very much looking forward to this one, its nice to hear real Joe fans give it goof reviews.ReplyDelete
