And in other news, the Transformers sequel made more in five days than Green Lantern in its entire run.

Remember, the audience is always right!

Well, the latest Transformers was a better movie.

Well, for what it's worth, I've been a fan of Green Lantern since I was five. I've never been a fan of Transformers. I thought Dark of the Moon was infinitely more entertaining.

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

The first half of transformers was way better than Green Lantern... But once the agenda became clear, that the Decepticons wanted a slave force of 6 billion humans i had to scratch my head. Given their technology, humans would only slow down any tech or project they had a thousand fold.

And how do they get all those slaves?

by frakking the earth.

Oop.

Killed all our slaves.

However I did marvel that they called what happened on the darkside of the moon an "Event" then that Decepticons had been guiding and controlling human government and industry for the last 40 years and then that their game plan was to teleport a small planet into Earths orbit.

Lawsuit?

(The event copied the transformer cartoon from the 80s first.)

You know who when they did Evil dead II, That they remade all of the first movie to be played during the opening credits because it was just that uneventful? Green Lantern had about 10 to maybe 15 minutes of worthwhile story before they brang out the beef.

No beef.

Critical and box office consensus says otherwise, Mr. Champion of Populism.

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

If box office was always right the half the films that have earned oscars over the last few years wouldn't get those Oscars. That doesn't mean the films are good. It means a lot of people are seeing them because they're fans of said film or franchise or whatever.

On the subject of a sequel...until Warner Bros/DC Ent comes out and says their sequel plans are canceled I'm still going on the basis that there is going to be a sequel.

Seriously?? The first half with the nonstop parade of awful jokes, lame office humor, annoying little robots, and vapid relationship crap was better than Green Lantern?

I just... do not understand my fellow scifi fans sometimes. I frankly can't think of ANYTHING in GL that was as bad as some of the stuff in Transformers 3.

They won't come out and say anything... they will just quietly move on.

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

Some day, ten years from now, some scifi geek is gonna pull the Green Lantern blu ray out of the five dollar bin at Wal-Mart, turn to his gamer buddy & ask, "Hey, wasn't there supposed to be a sequel to this?"

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

The sequel commitment for this is even more halfhearted than what DC gave to Superman Returns.

It's never going to happen.

I think by then the kid is going to say something "Hey, who's this? Blanket Jackson is Green Lantern."

Ten Years?!
You can already find Superman Returns in the $5 bin.
It'll be sooner than that.

That will be IMPOSSIBLE. In ten years, blu-ray will be obsolete....

That's why it'd be in the five dollar bin!

Geez!
