G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra vs. G.I. Joe: Retaliation- A Cast Comparison

Joe Cast
   In the new installment of the G.I. Joe movies, we get almost a complete wipe of the cast.  Including one persistent character now being played by a new actor!  There a few spoilers in this post, but nothing that you won’t figure out after 15 minutes of each movie. 

Duke_Channing_Tatumgi-joe-johnson1Duke (Channing Tatum) vs. Roadblock (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson): Team Leader
   Tie-  Both are great team leaders and inspire loyalty in their men.  They also both likable on screen.  While Duke has a youthful draw, Roadblock is a kid at heart.  Some of the best scenes in Retaliation are these two together.  Then some things change and Roadblock gets a “field promotion” to lead the team.

Even More Things Toy Story and The Walking Dead Have in Common

Walking Dead v Toy Story 1
   We originally posted this last week, but there are even more now so we added them and reposted it! It seems like most great things from the internet seem to source from places like Reddit and 4Chan.  Then they pick up steam once they hit Facebook and Twitter.  My buddy Scott shared this image series with me on Facebook that originated on Imgur.  We are big Walking Dead Fans and are looking forward to the Season Finale this week.  You might watch with a different perspective after seeing this though.

   Also if you are new to Walking Dead, some spoilers below, and make sure to check out the review we did of Season 1.

My Thoughts on “Thoughts on Girls”

Hey Girl- Modest
  Last year at Girls Camp, the Young Women of the Lehi North Stake had the theme “Arise and Shine.” (from the 2012 LDS Youth theme “Arise and Shine Forth.”) “All of our activities had to do with modesty, virtue, being kind and happy, all the things that make you attractive,” said Heather Griffin, the stake camp director. “So then we took the girls down to this amphitheater and said, ‘So we invited some boys to camp this year,’ and all of them squealed.”

   It was then that this video was played, featuring boys from their stake talking about girls. They where asked questions like, what makes a girl shine, and the answers from these 16- to 18-year-old boys are their sincere answers.

   I loved this video.  Some parts were a little odd, but it was teenage boys, what do you expect?  There are others though who are vocal in their protests to this video.  They say it objectifies women, promotes that their sole purpose is to please men, and other sorts negative feedback.  One boy from the video wrote in the YouTube comments, “I don't want to cause any contention here, but I don't understand what you are coming from. The goal of the video was to help the girls understand that they are all beautiful princesses, and shouldn't ever settle for anything less. Trying to show them that they don't need to be immodest etc. to be attractive. Trying to show them that they are pure, have virtue.”
