    Remember American Gangster? He recited his lines like they were being read from a teleprompter. It must frustrate good actors who might love the chance for a bigger payday, lose out simply because someone else fits an image a studio thinks they need.

    RZA needs to fuck with Tarantino on Django Unchained in some capacity, I can't wait to see that ish.

    I hope the sequel actually stays true to the GI Joe cartoon. I don't remember it that well but I don't recall a forced love story between one of the GI Joe's and Cobra's henchwoman. This is probably what the producers are thinking "hmm how could we make the most money out of this? I know let's try to throw in as many genres as possible! It was originally an action cartoon but let's put some cheap humor and a little romance in there." Same with Transformers. I remember it being about giant robots fighting each other not a drama about 2 high school kids with giant robots in the background. Let me guess they'll make a movie about He-Man where he is secretly in love with Skellator's sister and in the end the two of them settle their differences and become in-laws.

      Co-sign. I felt like my childhood was being raped when I saw the first GI Joe movie. Michael Bay better not f*ck it up tomorrow, or else. Transformers 3 will be the tie breaker. Part one was great. Part two was god awful.

    If baby RZA knew that he would finally get to be a martial arts master in a movie and then was told it was this shitty sequel, he probably would have stopped watching all those kung fu flicks.

  • jae

    dam if he does get the role that will be the biggest movie role he ever had,
