Old school movies VS New school movies?

“G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” ┬ácoming to theaters August 7, poses a new question for students: What’s better, old school movies or new school movies? Hollywood has been bringing back many old school movies within the past few years such as “Transformers,” “Star Trek” and now “G.I. Joe”. Some feel that the “originals” will always be the best. What do you think?

Well, here’s an idea of what the new age version brings to the table: according to Paramount Pictures, “The elite G.I. JOE team uses the latest in next-generation spy and military equipment to fight the corrupt arms dealer Destro and the growing threat of mysterious Cobra organization to prevent them from plunging the world into chaos.” Take a sneak peek by clicking the link below:

Successful collaboration Paramount Pictures and Hasbro (whom also collaborated “Transformers”) are confident that the new G.I. Joe will be a hit. The movie is directed by Stephan Sommers whom also directed “The Mummy” and “The Mummy Returns”. The movie stars actors Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Quaid, Sienna Miller, and Marlon Wayans.

Take the poll and tell us which is better, old school or new school? AND don’t forget to see “G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra” in theaters August 7!
