Why must Hollywood put mouths on my childhood?
Posted in news, rants & nostalgia by Jim Doom
I was at Burger King the other day and noticed on their G.I. Joe promotional materials that Snake Eyes has a mouth. Why on earth would you give Snake Eyes a mouth?
It’s probably so that he can talk more easily. That’s how much faith I have that this movie is going to be good. None.
No way… I didn’t know Snake eyes had a mouth too. Why does the character has isn’t suppose to talk… have a mouth??? HE BETTER NOT TALK DURING THE MOVIE!!! HE BETTER NOT HAVE THE SILENT BOB MOMENT AT THE END OF THE MOVIE!!!
“You know Scarlet, not every woman brings you lasagna to work, NO TICKET”!
Another reason this movie will suck? There’s a Wayans in it.
Are there any reasons it might be good?
I’m actually getting excited about it. The reviews are good enough that the Journal Star’s resident “young hip people” reporter is apparently panicking. He’s got a blog up called Why is ‘G.I. Joe’ scoring such good reviews? in which he attempts to psychoanalyze film critics who’ve dared to review it favorably, even though he hasn’t seen the movie. It’s quite a preemptive strike against the idea that an action movie could be good, which has to be terrifying for him.
