I don't mean this in a negative way towards any of you, but sometimes when we have these discussion I'm so glad that I can just enjoy things.
I respect the standards and opinions that some of you fellas have and I'm willing to accept that I'm just an irreverant, nothing's sacred kind of a guy - but some of these stuff just doesn't matter to me on any real level. I want legacies heroes. I want new ideas in new medias. I'm always ready to see something torn down and see what else can be made out of it.
To me GI Joe was serviceable and entertaining. It was a Stephen Sommers film and I knew that going in - I was hoping for more Mummy, less Van Helsing and I think that's what I got. Hawk & Breaker were my favorite Joes from the movie. Villainwise, I loved Destro (except for his "have I told you about my family" icebreaker) andI ABSOLUTELY loved Storm Shadow. I literally had to have that figure - unmasked specifically - after watching the film. I even bought him a motorcycle and the missile launcher later.
Anyway, I'm not advocating loosening up. You guys are splendid just the way you are.
