G.I. JOE vs. TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN: It All Comes Down to Who Has The Redhead

There’s a new trailer out for G.I. Joe today, and Harry over at Ain’t It Cool News says that he is now more stoked for this film than he is for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Seriously! I mean, I was a card-carrying Transformers addict as a kid, and couldn’t have given two shits (maybe one, but not two) about G.I. Joe. But give me a movie featuring Rachel Nichols as a redhead versus a(nother) movie with a non-speaking, non-Volkswagen Bumblebee any day. I mean, yes, Megan Fox is hot. But there was never a stinkin’ love interest in Transformers (unless you count Arcee in the animated movie)! C’mon! At least the guys behind G.I. Joe are being true to the source material.
