    Wait, did they seriously reuse footage from Black Hawk Down for Duke's backstory?

    Just wanted to say that ever since finding this site (forget how) – that it is a permanent bookmark now. Your reviews are hilarious and are the only way I can tolerate a bad movie. Well done and I look forward to all new episodes. It was thru you that I saw (for the first time) star wars Christmas special. I have no words for it except —- wow —- . Keep up the great work!! Also doesn't help that the host is pretty easy on the eyes ;P

    Personally I dont find Rise of Cobra to be that bad, for me its a fun little action film.Sure the plot is a little silly but i have seen worse,I like to sit back and have fun with a movie, its the same reason why I like The Flash Gordon Movie,That movie is also corny and kind of stupid in retrospect but its still a lot of fun to watch.

    I just wandered in here from TGWTG and I have to say that while I will admit the movie has issues (Serious issues), it's overall a much better way to set up a franchise than Transformers. Overall this movie suffers from having to dump exposition, BUT has the potential to lead to an extremely good payoff with the next movie (If there IS a next movie).

    Wandered in from TGWTG and I have to say, out of all the newcomers I see on the site, you seem to be the most competent in style and form yet. I cant wait to see what you bring to the table.

      I did hear of GI Joe. I didn’t get along with him. As far as I know, he’s not a Muslim, but I won’t say anything about chreactar and behavior as backbiting is unlawful to Islam.Peace.Ankaboot: I did answer your question properly. The reason I’m on block is because my views differed from yours and you can’t take any criticism. I don’t care who blocks me. wa’alaykum as-salam.I’ll answer for Dragon. The fact was that you always put down users who don’t say salaam, but you rarely say salaam yourself. When we pointed that out, you put us on block. lol

    Terrible movie. Makes Transformers 2 seem competent.

    For those wondering, Brendan Fraser was supposed to be Flint.

    What's the name of the song you used when showing the cobra base? I can't get it out of my head!

    That would be the theme to the show "Sealab 2021".
