Despite my reservations about the quality of the finished film, the campaign and anticipation for the upcoming G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra movie has me wanting to do a number of things:
- Buy the complete series DVDs of the cartoon series and spend a day eating Dorito’s and watching the whole freaking thing.
- Buy the re-issues of the original comics series and re-live all the great stories that were told in that title.
- Dig through my parent’s basement and figure out which action figures are still there, surviving both the years and my brothers habit of taking figures apart and putting Zartan’s arms on Destro’s body and otherwise making his own creations. I so want a HISS tank on my office desk right now.
Basically it’s evoking all sorts of nostalgic feelings in me right now, which is kind of the point. So it’s working.
