The Hoard Potato: Fighting Man from Head to Toe  
There's a G.I. Joe movie coming out this summer.

Most of the buzz from the trailers has been positive, so far, but we're inevitably going to get a lot of bitching from the crowd who grew up on the '80s cartoon.

Considering that I had -- and still have -- a 1966-vintage Mercury Astronaut G.I. Joe, and was nearly 20 wheh your precious cartoon assaulted my fond childhood memories, there's not a whole lot I can say that is essentially different than what I said a year and a half ago when people were bitching about Alvin & The Chipmunks.

Come to think of it, I'm not really interested in your positive reactions, either.

The movie's being produced by Stephen Sommers, who did the Mummy movies and Van Helsing.

Say what you want about the quality of his movies, but I've always found them super fun. The guy knows what he wants to see in his movies, and crams 'em packed full of it. Perfect popcorn movies.

Plus dude is TOTALLY a furry. Mummy Returns had anthro jackals and a scorpiontaur. Van Helsing had the hottest fucking werewolves ever put to film. And Mummy 3 had buff sexy yetis!

I bet you the cost of your movie ticket there's some anthro animal (cooooobra perhaps?) in G.I. Joe.

Now, see, "It's a Stephen Sommers movie" throws a LOT more weight with me than the TITLE.
