I don’t care about the GI Joe brand. I wasn’t an ‘80s kid and therefore I have no nostalgia for it as an entertainment franchise. I’d previously tried watching the first of the two big blockbuster GI Joe films and I didn’t get halfway through it without getting immensely bored. My only interest in thisContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Snake Eyes – GI Joe Origins”
