Another run of video interviews for G.I. Joe: Retaliation at Celebs.com

The hits just keep on coming…  these aren’t TV Spots or trailers, they look to be Celebs.com interviews with the G.I. Joe: Retaliation stars, including everyone from Ray Stevenson to Elodie Yung, Dwayne Johnson, DJ Cotrona, and Adrianne Palicki.

There doesn’t appear to be much new actual film footage in these interviews, but the interviews themselves are still very enlightening, but keep in mind some movie spoilers might be contained.  Click the Read the Rest of the Story link below to check them all out.  Thanks to Skinny from SerpentorsLair.org for the keen eye.

Very cool Lady Jaye vignette from G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Another character vignette has made its way online, courtesy of what appears to be a foreign YouTube channel.  It’s a great minute long look at the Lady Jaye character with some great new footage featuring Lady Jaye herself and our first really good look at Agent Mouse!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation reviews are starting to emerge!

I just posted the link to Mike Ryan’s article saying that no real reviews have gone up yet, but then bam!  We suddenly have a few reviews.  I have posted some links below to check out these reviews, although keep in mind, there are some spoilers throughout.  I have put the review scores in parentheses next to the link so folks can get an idea of the response without actually risking spoilers.

Reaction so far, among these critics, remains mostly positive.  It will be very interesting to keep watch on this as the next few days go on, as more and more reviews from various advanced screenings start getting posted.

There is a RottenTomatos spot for G.I. Joe: Retaliation as well, with the above three reviews linked to it, but not enough to yet  build a “consensus”.  That should change over the next few days!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation perspective from Mike Ryan at the Huffington Post

While we don’t appear to have any mainstream reviews of G.I. Joe: Retaliation yet, we’ve seen some quick-hit response from Larry Hama on Facebook, and now Mike Ryan, Senior Entertainment Writer for the Huffington Post has put his .02 out there as well.

In all fairness, I need to mention that Mike Ryan is a G.I. Joe nerd, and is specifically a Larry Hama comic fan, so he’s “in the trenches” with us so to speak.  He’s not a true outside person reviewing the film on its merits alone.  But he has some really great perspective and I truly hope his reaction matches the reactions of many other people who go see the film.

Check it out over on the Huff Post Blog.

Getting down to the wire…reason 7 why G.I. Joe: Retaliation will… Rock?

No pun intended in the title…  ah, who am I kidding?  Pun definitely intended.  It’s a Friday, which means Twitziller is focusing on a major factor today, and that factor is one that many of us can probably guess, especially based on my horrible pun up above.

#7:

 

I know I’ve mentioned in the past how humorous it is that only ten years ago, Hasbro could barely even keep the copyright active for Roadblock, and here we are with the character the focal point of the entire film franchise.  I think the character is a great choice, and the actor is equally great for this role.  So why does Roadblock make sense for the film?  He’s a larger than life character, with a lot of personality.  He’s someone who still has some open ends in his history, yet he’s familiar enough with fans to resonate.  He was a focal point in the cartoon, and had some very key roles in the comics as well, and was one of the few characters who could transcend both.

GeneralsJoes wraps Kre-O week with Ninja Temple and Dragonfly!

Wow…somehow I did it.  I really didn’t think I’d be able to make this all happen, but I managed to get all of the G.I. Joe Kre-O sets reviewed in a single week.  Yeah, I’m patting myself on the back for that one, deal with it.  Check out the G.I. Joe Kre-O review page for all of the details on these terrific sets, or hit up the direct links below:

Also I was able to get the Battle Platform review updated with images of the RAM motorcycle.  I apologize for that little snafu, but all is right with the world.  Thanks to all the folks who gave me a heads up.
