MOVIE GAME NEWS: Green Lantern Game Greenlit (Pun Intended)

Green Lantern Movie

I’ve always been a big fan of Green Lantern so I’m really curious to see what an eventual big screen version will look like. I like the casting of Ryan Reynolds, I’m not being biased because I’ve met him at several times throughout the last 6 years, but I think he’ll be good in the role, although I see him more as Kyle Raynor and not Hal Jordan. Anyway, these days if you are going to be a major Hollywood tent pole you have to also have a big game attached. The folks behind this summer’s upcoming G.I. Joe game and Silent Hill: Homecoming, Double Helix has been tapped by Warner Brothers to create the Green Lantern Game. I’ll hold judgment until I play the G.I. Joe game in August.

DVD REVIEW: G.I. Joe A Real American Hero, Season 1.1

G.I. Joe A Real American Hero: Season 1.1

Yo, Joe!  Cobralalalalala…….There are three movies that deeply disturbed me as a sensitive child of the mid 70s and 80s – the first time I saw The Wizard of Oz, the flying Monkeys gave me nightmares – I still get nightmares to this very day about them, then there was the H.R. Puffingstuff movie and finally in the late 80s there was a little known, rarely shown movie version of the 80s cartoon series G.I. Joe. It was called G.I. Joe: The Movie and it basically gave a lot more color and back story to Cobra Commander – he’s really from another planet. If you read the recent 19 part Star Wars: New Jedi Order series about the invasion of the Yuuzhan Vong, it’s a blatant rip-off of the G.I. Joe movie. But this review isn’t about the G.I. Joe: Movie, it’s about the original G.I. Joe cartoon series which the later movie was based on.  When I watched this series, I couldn’t help but get more and more ticked off at how much of a bastardization the upcoming Hollywood movie is going to be.

MOVIE NEWS: New G.I. Joe Trailer!

The more I see of it, the more I’m strongly disliking the new G.I. Joe movie. I just can’t stand these stupid, cheesy looking Super Suits they are wearing. They look more ridiculous when they are going up against normal, non-suit wearing Cobra folks and still getting their butts handed to them. I do like the vehicles and it feels kind of right – if not for the suits, this could be really, really good. But somehow I doubt it.
