G.I. JOE Fan Film – Operation: Red Retrieval

The film was made on a budget of $2000 and shot on a Canon 7D, over a period of six days. Check out the fan made film trailer below and tell us what you think!

Snake Eyes is a Total Bad Ass in this trailer as he should be, for a fan film its amazing! I have never seen a fan film this good, they should probably take a few notes from the guys for the next movie.

Cobra Commander

Who remembers the Cobra Commander from 80s, now that guy used to annoy me as a kid. I loved when the Joe’s kicked his butt, one thing for sure is that he was the perfect evil leader, diabolical but always screwing up. Now SideShow Collectibles have come up with the perfect model of Cobra Commander, and I have to say it looks pretty real, even better the cartoons used to be, I have a memory of them but when I see the cartoons they were much worse then what I remember.

Review: G.I.Joe – Resolute

In G.I. Joe: Resolute, the raging battle between G.I. Joe and Cobra has never been more intense. Every life is at stake… and even the good guys can die.

This is no game.

Your favorite characters are back… but this time, no one is safe. No parachutes. No lasers. No rules.

All games end today.
Now you know… and knowing is half the battle.

A quality animated movie or tv show of G.I. Joe is long overdue, this picks up assuming you know a degree of the storyline. Cobra seems to be destroyed but something is brewing under the radar, and Cobra goes into full attack with G.I. Joes caught off gaurd. The best part is that the story jumps in Snake Eye’s past, you start seeing Cobra Commander’s plan coming together, this time around people are dying, it isn’t like before if the character dies then they are dead. And there is the usual big kick ass fight between G.I. Joe and Cobra, a great short movie and I’m looking forward to more episodes of G.I. Joe.

Review: G.I.Joe The Rise of the Cobra

I have been waiting months to see this movie but I was disappointed because of all the bad reviews that came out months before the movie even came out, so my expectations were lowered. Turns out they were completely wrong and I had a blast watching this action packed G.I.Joe movie. My hat goes off to the director and producer from turning a childhood cheesy cartoon from the 80s into modern day action packed film. I loved how you were introduced to the characters one after the other, and as the movie progressed you got to understand the story behind the relationship of some of these characters to help lead up to the story, it was building up an interesting climax, I wasn’t even sure how it was going to work out but the equipment and modern weaponry was really cool. The kid in me was more then satisfied, I was excited at so many different points and it didn’t disappoint at all. I was very very happy about the justice they did to Snake Eyes, they portrayed him perfectly and gave him the background story he deserved. I wasn’t sure though how the Cobra Commander comes into it, and how Cobra develops but towards the end of the movie it becomes extremely clear. I was more then happy to see the movie, I was satisfied, and the best part is that I know there is a sequel coming out for sure which got me excited, they laid the plans out for the sequel which leaves them open to do what they want. I know there are a few parts which crosses the line of reality and the rules of gravity, but its something I could accept and go with it.
