Just a Little Bit More Snake Eyes

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is due in theaters this weekend. I’m going to go see it, because my movie theater is open, I’m vaccinated and the crowds haven’t been too big (other than for Black Widow). Will it be good? Yeah, maybe! Will it kick off a whole new G.I. Joe franchise built around Henry Golding’s Snake Eyes? God willing!

I have mellowed a bunch in my old age and it doesn’t bug me as much that we both see Snake Eyes’ face and he talks in this film. That’s fine. Maybe by the end he’ll be the traditional masked mute, but I wouldn’t die if that didn’t happen. I’m hoping this is good and a new franchise is possible. Why not? What else are we saving G.I. Joe for? Military-based action movies are a dime a dozen. Why not have a franchise where all of the gruff military dudes are unique, wacky characters? And of them is an awesome, masked ninja?

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins will be in theaters on Friday and this weekend!
