Default A-Team remake

According to a topic on M4Carbine.net (I'm not a member there, I just troll lol), there's a new A-Team in the works.

Oh... okay, then MPM or another mod can close this topic and we can all forget I ever made it.

We made an IMFDB page, not a topic. It doesn't mean we can't talk about the movie here.

As for me, personally, I think it looks stupid. The trailer alone caused me to cringe. Also, without offending some of our up-north friends here...any time I see that a movie is filmed mostly in British Columbia, I immediately think that it's going to be second-tier in almost everything.

(Television shows are another matter...a lot of TV shows I love were done in Vancouver.)

Saw the trailer and all I've got to say is this movie has balls.

balls is good. but it's also the thing that turns women away from us.
hint-hint testosterone. hint-hint alchohol. hint-hint ''Jackass 2''

my take on it is it's probrably shit.
the a-team was a load of crap when it was made.
and this looks like the same thing. its the ''waynes world'' of movies. it doesnt fit in.
its like a mix between G.I. joe and XXX 1 and 2

You're opinion is noted, but I think this movie is just an awesome fun action pack comedy movie. It's not supposed to be taken seriously. I mean John Woo is making a Rainbow Six movie. I'll throw in more criticism for that one, but an A-Team remake is supposed to be a fun movie. yeah it seems kinda stupid, but that's why it's so cool.
