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

Just bought the DVD. I had not seen this movie in the theater. My complaint is that the film on DVD is dark! I don't remember the trailers displaying that. But overall I really enjoyed the movie. It was filled with good action, great special effects, an interesting story and pretty good character development. I think Ryan Reynolds was great both as Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern. I also thought he would have been perfect for The Flash. Hopefully we will get a sequel.

Ryan Reynolds was for a long time attached to David Goyer's Flash project until it finally was abandoned.

I seem to be the only one who thinks the bluray picture looks better than I expected. It has a nice contrast to the image.

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

Saw it on DVD with my son. A solid "A" and I'm not a huge fan of the genre. Very impressed. I may get him the Blu-Ray combo pack extended edition if it comes down in price a little for Xmas. He really loved it and is Green Latern for Halloween (he's 10). I was Green Lantern when I was 8, 9 or 10 (I forget) and he didn't even know that when he chose the costume. I also thought "Thor" was first rate.

I picked up my copy today and thought it was fantastic. It was better on blu ray than in 3d.

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

I wonder how well these are selling. I actually had trouble tracking down an extended edition last week. They were gone from all my Target and Walmarts, and I could only find it at the more expensive Best Buy.

Yahoo Entertainment has listed it's top Turkey films of the year.
Green Lantern has the dubious distinction of being on the list.
Not to anyone's surprise though I suppose.

Also worth noting that you can currently buy the extended version bluray DVD combo on Amazon for $9.99

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

Which still sucks.

I've seen both versions, I think, but I wasn't sure what was new, and what was stuff I'd just forgot.

The DVD was in the Black Friday movie sale display at the Wal-Mart where I work. It was marked at either $10, or $5 I can't remember which.

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

I'm still disappointed that there was no audio commentary on the DVD. It's the only reason why I didn't buy it. Can't believe no one from the film who was involved in it's development wasn't available to record something. Would've been interesting.

Really?! As if the Arnie movie was the first Conan ever? Is that really what people think? No wonder they didn't get the reboot.

Even for ten dollars, I can't bring myself to pick this up, and I'm about as big a Green Lantern fan there is.

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

Now the reason I don't mind Green lantern being a Turkey is because as far as I'm concerned, being a fan of quite another Green Lantern, I'm sure that Hal Jordan is both a Duesh and an asshole that needs to be stopped.

So the movie just confirmed what I knew to be true already,

You're a Kyle Rayner fan, then?
