Little known fact about me, I hated the movie GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. At first I thought it had to do with the fact that I never read the comics or watched the show as a kid, so maybe that was why I couldn't get into it. But then I learned that even those who were fans of the comics hated it, so there.
Anyway, when I heard that they were making a sequel, I thought to myself "Oh okay, I guess I'll be skipping that". Yesterday, however, a new trailer for the movie was posted on Youtube, and I thought I would take a look. Below is a transcript of all the thoughts going through my head as I was watching this:
Oh great, Chaning Tatum is back. Can't wait to sit through his blandness again
Oh hey the Rock is in this. That's pretty cool. Still don't planning on seeing it
Wait... Tatum DIES at the beginning? Hey, this might get good!
Wow... That british guy is back playing the US president? A BRITISH MAN IS PLAYING AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT?
Wait... The Cobra group takes over the US? That might be interesting. Though a little corny I guess. They are after all hanging cobra flags on the white house.
Is that a dub step version of "Seven Nation Army" I hear?... Okay
Rock is toting a big ass machine gun... Looks a little promising. But still, this is a sequel to a really crappy movie.
Come on guys! This may look cool and everything, but you are going to need to try really hard to make me forget the first movie!
Wait a minute... Is that?... No... It can't be... Oh... My... God... It is!... By God it's... BRUCE WILLIS!!! And he's being awesome, witty, douchey, and all of the things that I love to see in Bruce Willis!
So yeah, this movie may be crap, or it may turn out to be freaking fantastic. All I know is that I'm sold thanks to the awesome of Willis. Also I should point out that all the cheesy ass laser guns and gadgets are gone. Not to mention that Marlon Wayans was nowhere to be seen in this trailer (cue joyous choir).
