G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review
Usually with movie sequels, one needs to watch the first film to understand the story so far and understand the progression into future films. G.I. Joe: Retaliation is not one of those movies. G.I. Joe: Retaliation isn’t a lot of things actually, but is it at least worth watching? Well, no. Not really. G.I. Joe: Retaliation is the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. A lot of it feels like a sequel only in name, for about 90% of the... 

G. I. Joe Retaliation Trailer

G. I. Joe Retaliation Trailer
Everyone has a guilty pleasure. G. I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra is one of mine. It is a movie that goes alongside the Transformers trilogy as one best enjoyed if you leave your brain at the door. It’ll never win any Oscars, but it’s the brand of movie I like to call ‘Stupid Fun’. And so it comes to this, a sequel to G. I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, G. I. Joe: Retaliation. A sequel that removes about 90% of the characters from the first movie, but...

Review: Toyfair New York 2011

Review: Toyfair New York 2011
Toyfair NY was a great show in New York. However while most people think that there was just the one show that took place in the Jacob Javits center, there was in fact two. The second show, a much more important one in my opinion, was also a somewhat exclusive show by Hasbro in the New York Times Building, located a mere 18 minutes away on foot as seen by this map, but more on this later. Toyfair as a whole was pretty interesting, and had a lot...
