Watch Last Night's Perfect GI Joe-Style Opening Of Community

Actually, last night's episode of Community — which was not only animated like the classic cartoon, but also contained several shockingly accurate '80s GI Joe toy commercials — was pretty much perfect all the way around. But if you missed the show, you at least need to watch the wonderful opening. At least. » 4/04/14 6:20am 4/04/14 6:20am

See the Real American Heroes of Community's GIJoe Episode In Action

We've mentioned that the next episode of Community will be animated in the style of the original G.I. Joe cartoon, but now you can see Britta and Abed — er, Buzzkill and Fourth Wall — in action as they teach kids about the importance of... something or other. The episode airs on April 3rd.

​Your Wait For the Long-Awaited Sandman Overture #2 Is Finally Over

Yes, the second issue of Neil Gaiman's already fabulously-popular-despite-having-only-one-issue-out is finally here! Let's hope #3 manages to arrive in less than four months. Plus, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero hits the big #200, Marvel tries to Survive, and Image presents the superhero version of Galaxy Quest! » 3/25/14 2:40pm 3/25/14 2:40pm

Odd Thomas is the type of feel-good horror movie they made in the 80s

Odd Thomas is an adaptation of a successful novel by Dean Koontz. But the actual movie has a breezy, quippy tone and a small-scale storyline that remind me of nothing so much as a low-budget 80s adventure film. It's not a great movie, or even a particularly good movie, but it's fun and cute and doesn't outstay its… » 2/28/14 9:00am 2/28/14 9:00am

Cobra debuts its dopest weapon in its war on GI Joe, the Rap Viper

Actually, this is the great new music video from rapper Wordburglar, "Rap Viper," off his new GI Joe-themed album Welcome to Cobra Island. But it should be real, if only because it's not even close to the least ludicrous soldier Cobra employs. I'm looking at you, Big Boa. » 1/13/14 7:00pm 1/13/14 7:00pm

G.I.Joe 2 says knowing this week’s DVD releases is half the battle

The other half of the battle is a terrifying, war between the G.I. Joe: Retaliation movie, the Star Trek: The Next Generation season 4 Blu-ray set, and Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, which should change DC animated movies for ever. You can only choose one — unless you want two or something. » 7/29/13 1:45pm 7/29/13 1:45pm

See Hasbro's awesome SDCC'13 exclusives you'll never be able to buy

The good news: Hasbro has revealed a number of the toys, dolls, figures and collectibles they'll be selling at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con via USA Today and they are unbelievably awesome. The bad news? You have about as much chance of purchasing these as of getting into Hall H to see a Joss Whedon panel (spend 12… » 6/05/13 1:45pm 6/05/13 1:45pm

10 Evil Schemes that Could Have Been Stopped by Taking Out a Minion

The universe is full of evil masterminds, whose schemes seem too brilliant to defeat — until, of course, they're defeated. But often, those schemes depend on one lowly minion, and if you just took out that henchperson, the masterplan would never have gotten off the ground. Here are 10 evil schemes that depended on an… » 5/10/13 10:00am 5/10/13 10:00am

A critical analysis of David Bowie’s crotch bulge in Labyrinth

Besides the subject mentioned in the headline, today’s “Postal Apocalypse” includes a historical look at butt-wiping technologies, how Cobra gets its funding in G.I. Joe, the worst Star Wars prequel quote, and more. It is possibly my favorite “PA” ever. Please, please keep those awesome questions comin’ to » 4/17/13 8:05am 4/17/13 8:05am

G.I. Joe: Retaliation concept art shows off a very different Cobra…

» 3/29/13 3:16pm 3/29/13 3:16pm

By now you've seen the shiny chrome face of Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: Retaliation (it was in the trailers). The mask is truly a glorious departure from the terrible clear scuba gear from the former Joe movie. But this Cobra Commander might not have had any mask at all! Early G.I.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is so good we should all pretend the first movie …

There’s a very simple test to figure out if you’re going to enjoy G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Imagine a kid, playing with his toys, creating an epic, albeit not entirely coherent adventure for them; then imagine someone turned everything that kid imagined into a big-budget movie. If that sounds horrible to you, don’t go see … » 3/28/13 8:00am 3/28/13 8:00am

The 10 Most Useless Members of G.I. Joe

Saving the world from a snake-themed terrorist organization with seemingly limitless resources isn’t an easy job, but someone’s got to do it. Or, more specifically, lots of someones, as G.I. Joe hired countless troops throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s to fight the good fight. Unfortunately, not all highly specialized… » 3/26/13 10:00am 3/26/13 10:00am

10 White People Who Inexplicably Became Ninjas

Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja, is an ancient, closely guarded tradition of stealth, martial arts and assassination that is only taught to the most skilled of Japanese warriors… and pretty much any white dude who happens to be in the neighborhood. Seriously, it’s like ninjas have their own version of Affirmative Action … » 3/22/13 10:00am 3/22/13 10:00am

It's raining ninjas in this awesome 4-minute G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Okay, they've shown us the scene where Snake Eyes shoots Storm Shadow's throwing stars out of the air, and they've also shown us the scene where Snake Eyes and Jinx fight a bunch of red ninjas on the side of a mountain. But now this 4-minute G.I. Joe: Retaliation clip bridges these two scenes together, and as it turns … » 3/20/13 2:40pm 3/20/13 2:40pm
