Why? I was hoping they would use the Manhunters in this film.

Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?

I got the impression that they may not be dwarfs.

That their bodies, torsos, legs went al the way to the ground thousands and thousands of feet down.... They may not even have legs... If their bodies are that massively lengthy, then perhaps they are more like snakes than bipedals?

The Guardians of the Universe. Obnoxious people like Guy Gardner often refer to the Guardians as "Dwarfs" or even sometimes "Smurfs".

That tower they're 'perched upon.

OH!

What if their snake like bodies are not just hundreds of feet long, but millions of miles long and their bodies and tails are coiled and spun around one another like the universe largest ball of flesh yarn to consist the subsistency of the world of Oa.

Left?

A dozen Immortals with their bodies wrapped around one another interlocking and interlacing, frotaging upon a trillion points of contact hardly knowing who and which one of them is stroking and massaging the other... Oa is not just the name of the planet, "Oa" is the noise they make as they cum whensoever one of these entities climax during the course of their 1/2 million year long so far, perhaps never ending orgy.

Left?

They're all dudes.

Makes all the sense in the world, for Sinestro.

What, stay away from a bunch of robots killing everybody?

If we know anything about the current generation of young moviegoers, it's that they'll turn out in droves to see robots smashing things up and killing people.

Let the Manhunters be Sinestro's troops.

Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?

I gave it a C- . . . I was feeling generous.

It was just bad, really really bad.

I wish they had done the black Green Lantern, not that it would have fixed the content much, but it might have been more enjoyable to watch.

It also doesn't help that my husband and I got into an argument on the way back from the theatre because he decided that Sinestro was like The Watchers from Marvel, in other words he mixed up universes . . . again.

Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?

A big meh from me

I'm no Lantern expert and have only basic knowledge about them so i can't judge comic/movie parallels and won't but the movie itself felt very disjointed to me.

I know that setup movies are notoriously very difficult to make and for that i'm giving them much leeway but this movie failed to rise above mediocrity. Parallax was kinda disappointing.. we never see why Fear is so potent with it and instead we just see it pulling "souls" from people and devouring them.

I also didn't buy Hal's supposed strength, i.e. to overcome fear, for a moment.. it just wasn't well written and if the script isn't that good no high quality actor can pull something good out of it (see Natalie Portman in Star Wars for example).

It was pretty to look at, Blake Lively was hot and i loved the first scene between her and the Lantern where she sees right through and recognizes him.. a big dig at all superhero movies where we are supposed to believe that mere glasses/half-masks or a different voice makes you unrecognizable to people that know you or work closely with you.

It remains to be seen if the financial success will be high enough to warrant a sequel.. i'm guessing it will but it'll be a long time until something falls together so well like it did with Nolan's Batman movies.

Re: Green Lantern: Grading, Review, Discuss, Tracking, Sequel?

It took something like, what, five years for the second Hulk movie? When all is said and done the gap between Superman movies will be even bigger.
