I thought this was Fast and Furious: Ninja Style

but nope, its a spin off from GI Joe. Yes, the Snake Eyes character from GI Joe. Yes. You read that right.

kinda sad when I saw In Theaters Only July 23, it looks goofy as hell but i still wanna watch

I guess the movie pipeline is back, we'll start seeing more and more theatrical only releases now. Wonder how its gonna work out, this weekend was still a huge bust as far as box office and I think 2 or 3 new movies came out.

Snake Eyes, the De Palma film from 1998, was pretty damn good, wasn't it ? I only saw bits and pieces of it on TV since then, so maybe if I saw it today I would find it dated, but I remember really enjoying it back then.

apparently there was supposed to be a 3rd movie out but covid and delays and they went ahead and did this one instead which is supposed to be a spinoff sequel that that 3rd unreleased movie!

new trailer today. looks like super generic kung fu action. wouldn't be surprised if it originally had nothing to do with gi joe, but some studio exec forced them into it so they don't lose the license.

but i just found out samara weaving is scarlet. which absolutely sucks because now i'm going to have to see it.

Ray Park is the only Snake Eyes

Few years ago now but worth reminding ourselves how badass he is.


I used to think the prequels were shit until we were served the last three and yet, even in one movie, he was a better villian than pretty much any Sith before or after him.

Forget Darth Plagueis, the real tragedy was Darth Maul. Greatest villain in Star Wars next to Vader and his potential was cast aside faster than Luke’s Lightsaber.

massive misstep IMO

Darth Maul said 31 words in The Phantom Menace. He was an absolutely terrible throw away fucking character who only got interesting in later animation.

darth maul is a big part of Star Wars Clone Wars and Rebels, if you like the character worth a watch. he'll probably show up in the Obi Wan live show too
