Yo Joe! I'm a Cop... of Fortune. Few flavors are sweeter than the savor of the nostalgic: that eureka moment when T.V. or movies zap you to your memory palace and stand in awe of the power of the brain. What about using ideas from the 'small-screen' past?
The pros: an almost guaranteed fan base, the artistic endeavor of adaptation, AND the possible reawakening of once-treasured paradigms. Battlestar Galactica, anyone??
The cons: the odds are against a remake/adaptation, the claim of unoriginality, AND the possible/inevitable accusations of "you ruined my childhood." Say like, anything George Lucas has done past 1983.
Three films. Three variant sources. One question: Will it Blend?
Bonus: We saw the new G.I. Joe movie & give you a brief head's up on whether or not to go see it and why.
Here are 2 fan-cut trailers for G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
