The Losers v. The A-Team

I am, without a doubt, a child of the ’80s. I have an appreciation for most all of the pop culture touchstones of that ten-year stretch, even the ones I didn’t necessarily care for at the time.

Despite never having been a fan of The A-Team, I would typically still be open to the movie reimage coming out this year, but I am much more excited about the movie adaptation of The Losers. I just read volumes one and two a couple of weeks ago, and the premise struck me as similar to that of The A-Team: An Army Special Forces group/CIA black ops team is forced underground by a government they trusted while serving the country they love. I don’t see a lot of movies in the theater these days, but if pushed to choose between the two, I’d most certainly pick comic book goodness over the tug of Regan Era nostalgia.
