GI Joe vs. Apophis: Addenda

Just Me informs us that there is a direct Egyptian connection in GI Joe, as we see from the promotional material:
From the Egyptian desert to deep below the polar ice caps, the elite G.I. JOE team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of the mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos.


  1. I wonder how long this mythos is gonna carry out....I mean are we gonna make James Bond movies until the end of time?

  2. Is this a requirement for all movies made this year or something? We get it, Masons make movies... (who else venerates the pyramids so freakin' much? And who else could possibly cram so much symbolism into each and every movie that comes out...? Besides us, that is.)

    Feel free to tear down my conjecture.

  3. JK- Explosions and tight jumpsuits sell. What can you do?

    Tommy- Maybe this all is tying into the Hall of Records and all of that. We've seen a lot of it this year, Obama's little visit not the least of it.

  4. Well, at the end of the trailer she does say "this has only just begun"...

    I noticed that near the beginning, the missiles flying up look a lot like tentacles (and apparently they slime you, like in those old Nickelodeon shows, except this time it's corrosive). There's also that same missile-flying-overhead-and-impacting shot from the Transformers 2 trailer, which I saw in a dream around the same time that was going around... This movie has the same "overt CG/transhumanism" vibe as the Transformers movies. I almost can't tell them apart, besides the lack of giant robots (really, they've just shrunken).
