The ten-year-old version of me is very disappointed. A new G.I. JOE movie came out this year, and I haven't seen it. Sure, I wasn't a big fan of the first live-action 'Joe flick (I had better adventures playing with my old Hasbro action figures in the backyard 30 years ago), but the previews I'd seen for the new one looked pretty good. If you missed it on the big screen as did I, this July you can catch up when G.I. JOE: RETALIATION comes home. The film will hit Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and On Demand July 30, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution, with a digital release two weeks early on July 16 th.  Full specs on each release hit Rock Father HQ this evening, and all can be found below.
