    I'm so sick of hearing people say, "Well it was dumb and loud, but it was a summer blockbuster so you can't expect too much." How does that notion actually make any sense? When did the blockbuster become synonomous with poor quality movies? The original summer movies Jaws and Star Wars are awesome, and many of the early 80s follow-ups were terrific. Then in the late 80s or early 90s the movies became much poorer but continued to make truckloads of cash. The studios realized quality was no longer necesssary and stopped caring. Now, they are so used to being rewarded for producing miserable movies that not only do they not care they don't even bother trying.

    I greatly enjoyed GI Joe. Its exactly what you think it is (an eye-candy summer action flick) and it really delivered.

    No one can say anything about the origins being changed because not even the cartoon movie followed the tv series.

    Again, great movie. GO JOE!

    Ok G4 technical staff or whoever designs these players, this is for you.
    You need to either change the volume changing thing or start it at full volume to begin with. I can not tell you how many times I've put the volume to full and then slid my mouse off screen, only to have the sound completely cut out because I still had the volume selected somehow.
    It's really a hassle to get the player to be in full volume.
