When I was a young boy me and my brothers would rush to get home from school every day to watch cartoons, and one of our very favorites was G.I. Joe. After I got a little older I began collecting comic books, and due to my love of this cartoon I started collecting G.I. Joe comics (although my favorites were classics like X-Men and The Fantastic Four). I actually still have all my G.I. Joe comics, and I am planning on passing them onto my nephews in the hopes that they can bring them the same enjoyment they did for me.
When I heard they were making a live action movie about G.I. Joe I have to admit to being a little apprehensive. Although there have been some wonderful adaptations of comic series like the first and second X-Men and Iron Man, there have also been some really terrible adaptations like both Hulk movies and the Fantastic Four movies. This Movie does look like it has the potential to be a successful adaptation, and being that this comic was far less removed from reality than most it should have an easier transition to the big screen than other comic series. Either way for nostalgic sake I will be going to see the movie this weekend, and I will be hoping to enjoy it as much as I did the comic and the cartoon. For now this is all I know about this movie......and remember knowing is half the battle!
