Saturday Silliness Cinema: Yo Joe!

Welcome to the show, it's time for my usual Saturday break from griping about business to have a wee bit of a laugh.

The movie version of GI Joe has dropped 68% in ticket sales since it's grand opening weekend, beaten by newcomer District 9. If you go by Hollywood math, you have to assume that the film would need to pull double its production budget of $175 million to make a profit (that's to cover prints, advertising, etc.) and so far it's hit around $150 million worldwide.

Paramount might end up taking a bit of a bath on this one.

So, here's a video that shows the movie version they should have made:


  1. Now that they greenlit GIJOE 2, I wonder when other studios are going to start mining the bottom of the barrel of 80's cartoons.

    Tell me the public is not clamoring for a M.A.S.K. or Silverhawks movie?

  2. Baroness is one hot little lass and gave me hot flashes when ever she put tool to mouth!

    Snake Eyes should of been using that brush like a sword to make epic his pictures.
