I did what any normal, well-adjusted 23-year-old would do to deal with stress in the home: I put in G.I. Joe The Movie.
The movie is replete with great morals and themes. Like hard work and determination, and being a service to one's country. It has to be a great recruiting tool. The Army should host viewing parties or something to bring recruitment up. And Don Johnson does the voice of Lt. Falcon! Awesome.
Two things bother me about this movie, though. No. 1 has to be that no one ever dies. Ever. Never ever. I mean, Duke takes a venomous snake to the chest, but he's going to be "A O.K." by the end of the movie. People are shooting right and left, planes are exploding in mid-air, yet not even the Cobra storm troopers get hurt. Do you know how many people a year die because of vending machines? And you're telling me that these soldiers come out of frequent shooting matches with a well-funded terrorist organization without so much as losing a a pink toe? That's an unrealistic view of war.
The second thing has to be that "Cobra Lalalalalalala" thing that Serpentor does. I can't do it and it pisses me off. I guess my tounge isn't agile enough (it is for other things... like blowing bubbles. Pervs). I need to get in touch with the guy who did the voice and see how he did it. I also just want to see if he wears a Serpentor costume around the house, as that is no doubt the only thing he has ever done with his life.
Common Sense gives it 2 out of 5 grenades. A good way to take your mind off reality.
