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.
I'm confused. Arnie's movie WAS the first Conan to hit the movie screens...

I almost brought the Conan thread back as well but didn't recall enough interest in the film. I also enjoyed the film. It was about 15min too long but it wasn't an entertainment turkey like GL imo.

Same here. It was $10 at Wal-Mart and I passed. At $5 maybe, I mean I even got Jonah Hex at $6 so maybe then.

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

I just got the disc from Netflix and watched it earlier today. It actually wasn't as bad as I expected, but it wasn't anything amazing either. Didn't like it as much as much any of the Marvel movies or Nolan's Batman films. If the poll were still open I would have gone with a B-.

I enjoyed it a lot. The film was dark, visually not thematically, and I wish some scenes were a little brighter. All in all I liked it. I would like to see a sequel but I am not holding my breath.

Yeah, I think there are some really good ideas there that could lead to some really interesting stuff in a sequel.

No, I'm pretty sure they were still called movies.

And his last name is spelled "Gardner."

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

Was this a hack or a real post?

Nevertheless, this is difficult. For thread necromancy that involves Green Lanterns, I can make a snarky comment involving Driq of Criq or I can make one on "Blackest Night." Can't decide which. Help!

In my spare time, I built a timemachine into a dildo, so how about I let you use it, so that you can go tell me how to spell my own name back in 1999 when it mattered.

The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a sex toy, why not do it with some style?

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

I thought that was actually a pretty good analysis in that Honest Trailer-- "Too nerdy for the mainstream, and too mainstream for the nerds."

Still though, I don't think GL was really any worse than a lot of other generic superhero movies out there. It was certainly more fun and entertaining than the last couple dreary Spider-Man movies, and the story isn't any less of a mess than IM2's or X3's.

Oh, hell no - on the Blake Lively vs. Emma Stone count alone, not to mention the Reynolds vs. Garfield one.

Please - IM2 successfully introduced Nick Fury (to general audiences that missed him in the first post-credits scene), the concept of SHIELD as a decades-old organization (a soft retcon at least of the IM1 organization that apparently didn't have an established acronym), Black Widow, and Tony and Pepper's couple-dom.

Green Lantern established the GL Corps as a bunch of dicks who decide not to do their jobs, and then let a fresh recruit who's just quit take his Power Rangers ring with him, even though he just quit. And then Evil Pink Dude puts on an evil Power Rangers ring for no reason.

All-around winner: IM2, not even close.

IM2 also had characters you could care about. Technically, the story may have been less than it could have been but I didn't find myself caring that much. I loved the portrayal of Iron Man, War Machine, Fury, Black Widow, and Pepper.

It's also more difficult because we now have an outer-space/super-hero movie done right that makes Green Lantern look even worse by comparison.
