What, no G.I. Joe thread?

    Weird buzz around G.I. Joe. The studio didn't let it loose early for critics because they said the movie was going to make a ton of money whether the critics liked it or not and the studio already knew that the critics weren't going to like it.
    I don't know a soul who is planning to go watch it. Not a single person.
    Most people have just laughed when I asked about it.
    So what does SportsJournalists.com nation have to say?

    Not even near the top of my list. Actually, not even on the list.

    There's some talk about it in the 'Last movie you watched' thread.

    There's a bunch of movies coming out this month that I want to see. This is not one of them.

    The commercials look terrible.

    The thing I don't understand is that the movie actually has some people who can act — well a single person who can act in Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and some other people who aren't terrible yet they didn't do a screening for critics.

    I suspect it will be a middling movie, better than Transformers, not as good as anything approaching decent. And it will make a huge pile of money.
    I'll probably check it out when it hits the dollar urine theater here in my town, but no way am I going to pay nine or 10 bucks to see it now.

    I don't think that movie could look worse.

    Well, OK, if they'd cast Ben Stiller as Joe and Will Ferrell to play Snake Eyes in an ironic parody of G.I. Joe.

    Not previewed for critics. One review I did see from a fanboi site said that if he were 10 years old this would be his favorite summer movie. I consider that damning with faint praise.
