Oakland Rolls Snake Eyes

by Alex Beanon August 1, 2013
To promote the release on DVD and Blu-ray of “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, Paramount sent Snake Eyes [actor Ray Park] to the Oakland Coliseum to toss out the ceremonial first pitch in a game against Toronto. The result? Well, see for yourself, but if you want a foreshadowing hint – Toronto shut out the A’s in […]

Cartoon Intro Cavalcade: “G.I. Joe: The Movie” (1987)

by Ed Liuon March 28, 2013
I’ve expressed my love for the 1980’s G.I. Joe opening sequences multiple times (especially the one that ran starting with the “The Pyramid of Darkness” mini-series and the TV show proper), but the opening credits for the feature-length G.I. Joe: The Movie deserves a closer look on its own. Like the opening credits to the […]


Review: “G.I. Joe Renegades” Complete First Season Blu-ray Easily Worth a Double-Dip

by Ed Liuon October 22, 2012
I must admit a non-trivial sense of ambivalence on the conclusion of the first and only season of G.I. Joe Renegades. The best compliment I can pay to the show is that I walked into the two-part season premiere as a skeptic and walked out of the two-part season finale as a convert. G.I. Joe […]

Review: “G.I. Joe” Series 2 Season 2 Surrenders to the Suck

by Ed Liuon July 11, 2012
I thought that the previous season of the DiC G.I. Joe series would prepare me for what was to come in the second and last one, now available on a 3-disc set from Shout! Factory and Hasbro. However, it turns out that even my lowest expectations weren’t sufficiently low, because G.I. Joe Series 2 Season […]

"G.I. Joe: Renegades" Season 1 Vol. 1: Patience Pays Off for a Band on the Run

by Ed Liuon June 5, 2012
G.I. Joe: Renegades is a really great show when it’s not driving me completely crazy. The series launched almost simultaneously with the Hub network, but received a more mixed reception than Hasbro’s other flagship toy property Transformers Prime, due to a big twist in the plot of the show and a daring new visual style.

"G.I. Joe: Resolute": They Ain’t Making Corn Flakes

by Ed Liuon November 11, 2009
If there’s a kid’s cartoon of the 1980’s that’s suitable for a darker, grittier, more violent remake, it’s G.I. Joe, partially because of its military angle and partially because of its substantial adult fanbase that enjoyed the cartoon and/or the comic book as kids. It is for that fanbase that Hasbro commissioned G.I. Joe: Resolute, […]
