Of course, my favorite part of the first movie was Rachel Nichols as Scarlet (and specifically the way that the first movie kept using her cleavage as almost its own character for what were obviously gratuitous reasons), and she's not even supposed to be in the new film, but whatever. I watched the Conan movie almost exclusively because of Nichols, and that's two hours of my life that I'll never get back, so who knows what that proves? I still like Rachel Nichols, but probably not enough to go see a whole movie again because of her.
Anyway, according to the early buzz, the new movie hews closely to the old G.I. Joe comics from Marvel back in the 1980s. Given the success of The Avengers, that's probably a solid marketing choice, but I'm not gonna sit here and pretend that I was some huge fan of the 80s comic version of the Joes. I just wanna see a decent movie, and if this one has both The Rock and Bruce Willis, well, here's hoping.
