Total Oscar Bait: G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer
That fusing of piles of different toys into an anarchy of story telling is what the trailer for G.I. Joe Retaliation reminds me of. Not because it looks anything good, and let me tell you, the world missed out on some top notch literature by not recording my play sessions for posterity. Let me tell you, there was some fricking pathos and tragedy going down on Saturday afternoons in my room. That's what you get with imagination, no neighborhood friends and no cable.
The president is a Cobra shapeshifter! The Joes are almost wiped out! Go find old dude Joe and form a secret team! Ninjas on a cliff!
This looks like a clusterfuck of cheesy stupidity. But it's got Bruce Willis and the Rock, with but a glimpse or two of the Lieutenant Spud. Maybe I'm delusional this morning, but it almost hints at being halfway entertaining.
