If you’d asked fans at the beginning of the year which film might prove more successful or more “in tune” with what the fandom wants, the answer would have been unanimous: Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. Hell, if you’d asked the same fandom a week ago, the answer would have been the same.
Yet Kris Polglase, a blog writer for Voxy.co.nz seems to indicate that perhaps the tables are turning, if just a bit. Transformers 2 is receiving widespread negative reviews (though, I gotta say the first film did the same), while the latest trailer has risen the stock of G.I. Joe considerably. Check it out here.
Listen. I don’t pretend to assume that G.I. Joe will hold a candle to Transformers 2. Not by a long shot. Just thought it was an interesting article. Hell, I’ll be seeing Revenge of the Fallen in iMax on Saturday, so I have no delusions that it won’t be entertaining. I just look forward to August 8th, when everyone can judge on actually seeing the film rather than casting blanket statements about it.
