It’s no secret that Snake Eyes holds a special place in my heart. No matter the critical reception of the film, it was always going to be a movie I celebrate.

I couldn’t tell you much about the G.I. Joe universe. I know the pamphlet description: a group of U.S. anti-terrorists militants devoted to truth, justice, and never skipping leg day.

And now, I know that whatever those other movies were doing, they were definitely focusing on the wrong Joe.Continue reading “‘Snake Eyes’ Rolls High With Experimental Take on Classic Character’s Origin”

Dominic, Britney, and Keith react to the official Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins trailer and why Henry Golding’s portrayal of the character is so meaningful. They also watched a short behind-the-scenes feature and differentiate between the G.I. Joe comics and cartoons, and Keith explains why he no longer cares if Iron Fist is Asian American anymore.
Few comic book characters mean more to me than G.I. Joe’s resident Ninja Commando. Created by Larry Hama and based on the Hasbro action figure designs, Snake Eyes wasn’t just my favorite action figure, he unlocked my imagination as a child. A silent warrior with a classified name and background meant that anyone could be beneath that iconic all-black mask. So for years, Snake Eyes looked like me until the comics eventually revealed the man underneath was yet another white-guy-who-happens-to-be-best-Asian.Continue reading “Actions Speak Louder than Words: Henry Golding on Being ‘Snake Eyes’”

Chee and T is the newest film by my homie Tanuj Chopra (Punching at the Sun, Nice Girls Crew) and is currently being funded on Indiegogo.

So what better way to raise awareness for their movie than getting a bunch of classic G.I. Joe action figures and reenacting the movie?
