What, were you raised in a closet? Why isn't G.I.Joe: Rise of Cobra on this list? Sure, it's probably going to stink on ice, but so did Transformers, and you included THAT on this list! And it's got Ray Park as Snake Eyes, so we're guaranteed at least a minute or two of ninja awesome.

alright, I'll modify it, GI Joe is now included...
