Battling Depression With a Movie Date to Watch G.I. Joe: Retaliation


Today, I felt kind of weepy again. I woke up with a bad mood because of a couple of bad dreams. That was the start of the downward spiral of my day. I kept crying till after lunch. Not good for me and the baby inside my womb.

So hubby took me out for a change of scenery and we decided to watch G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Yeah, it is not exactly the feel-good movie that I usually prefer but I like watching these action flicks with him. And he just doesn’t watch any action film, he watches only the Superhero movies and those that were taken from comic books. hehe

I dunno if critics will agree with me, but I like G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The action is fast-paced and it was quite a long movie, but I think that the story was cohesive and compact. The only part that we complained about was the fight scene between Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) and the villain Firefly (Ray Stevenson). We thought that it was a wee bit long and considering that he was a sharp shooter, we wondered why he couldn’t hit Firefly. hehe Okay, I am rationalizing.

That is about it. Anyway, all in all, I think it was a good watch–worthy to be watched in the cinema. hehe And well, I felt better afterwards. I am not sure if it was the movie or because hubby took me out. weeee

I wondered why Dwayne Johnson had a bigger photo in the poster. Then I learned that he was kind of the leader in the rest of the movie because Duke (Channing Tatum), the leader during the first part, died in the early scenes. Too bad.

Hubby and I were discussing and at first we thought that there will be no more sequel because almost all the characters had already died. But then again, the Cobra Commander (Luke Bracey), Destro, and Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee) are still alive, so we are guessing that we might just see a G.I. Joe 3 in the near future.
