Kick it wicked nice..

I don't mind telling you I have absolutely no confidence in Frank Miller.
I think Frank Miller's Will Eisner's The Spirit is going to be awful.
I will be absolutely delighted to be proven wrong and if it's not awful I will sing Miller's praises far and wide, but he does not get the benefit of the doubt and a "let's wait and see how it is before we start naysaying" attitude from me.
G.I. Joe gets the benefit of the doubt because that picture of Snake Eyes was awesome.
The pictures I've seen from the set of The Spirit fill me with nothing but dread.
How much dread? Sufficient dread to make me think the movie is going to be not only awful, but awfully ridiculous.
Prove me wrong, Frank.

Jae Lee's G.I. Joe vs. Transformers looked good too. But the "story" was ... well it didn't have a story. I'm not too optimistic about the G.I. Joe movie either.

Unless Minbender's in it. Then I'm there opening day.

although i do wholeheartedly agree with you i'm still holding out hope for the spirit.

despite the cool snake eyes pic i've really no interest in the g.i. joe flick. everyone thought the new star wars was gonna be extra awesome because of darth maul but as we all know now he only made star wars tolerable.

i would like to see the movie interpretation of destro. the guy's head was all metal!!

I love the pic you posted with this Chris, fantastic. I'm going to go with you on this, I always give a movie the benefit of a doubt until it opens, but the pictures and intereviews I've seen don't give me much confidence.

Darwyn Cooke (and I'll admit I'm a little bias in Cooke's favor) has said a few things about Miller's take and had some interesting things to say about why Octopus should never be seen.

Either way, I'm getting ahead of myself. MUST SAVE SPIRIT.

John - Yeesh! You said it.

Jason - Like I said, I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

Doc Shaner - Hey man! Thanks for stopping by!
I also don't mind admitting that some of Darwyn's thoughts flavored my opinion a bit as well.
