Oh, hell no - on the Blake Lively vs. Emma Stone count alone, not to mention the Reynolds vs. Garfield one.
Well no doubt there's a huge difference in the quality of actors, but that doesn't change the fact I found the Spidey movies painfully generic and uninspired.

GL may have been a bit cheesy, but at least we got to see some new superpowers we hadn't really seen before, and used in a pretty fun way.

And IM2 may have introduced a lot of new characters, but it was all in service of a story that didn't really work, and revolved around a couple of pretty lame villains.

The racetrack sequence was awesome, and it was fun watching Scarlett kick ass at the end, but other than that the movie just never really worked for me at all.

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!
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.
I'm less worried about whether the movie was any good than the fact that a 2½-year dead thread is now shambling around.

Let me rephrase the question. What smells worse: Driq of Criq, a Black Lantern, or this thread?

Well hey, if we can have a million threads debating the SW prequels or Spidey 3, then we can have at least one neverending Green Lantern thread.

Granted, this movie sucked too bad to provide us with a sequel anticipation thread in which to continue bitching about the previous film....
