After reading a handful of bad reviews i went into this expecting a giant pile of turd. Now granted I don't dislike many movies. Everything has its good qualities. And I have enjoyed several recent movies that others have disliked. That said my expectations had been seriously low...

This movie will be good if the viewer decides to leave his/her brain at home. The human brain naturally finds faults with or can pick apart things that are wrong. At times we overlook these kinds of mistakes if something is truly spectacular over all. These mistakes are too preva...

Green Lantern seems to be that one superhero movie that everyone seemed to hate and was extremely panned by critics, and to be honest I don't really see anything really insanely bad about it like everyone else. While yes I think Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan is a strange choice and...

So far from what I usually watch, but still enjoyable super hero flick, not on the level of Batman, but still enjoyable. 4 stars

This movie isn't bad; It's very pretty, but it's just dumb and never connects. I figured this movie's problem out about halfway through: none of the characters have sound motivation for anything they do. Nothing anyone does makes sense, because this damn movie never took the time...

I'm not familiar with the underlying comic book character so I can't comment on the film's similarities. That said, I didn't think it was as bad as some people were saying. I enjoyed it and would watch it again. Then again, it's hard not to watch any movie with Ryan Reynolds i...

For a film that's highly budgeted, it failed to hit that superhero-punch. Though it provided a visually remarkable landscape, it fails to fly from its poor story and less-that-impressive performance from not only the hero, but those around. 2.5/5

How does a superhero movie with a $200 million budget end up looking like a $30 million TV movie? A lot of the CGI-heavy scenes look like video game cut scenes, and a lot of the scenes with Ryan Reynolds flying look like his head is awkwardly floating around. It also perplexes ...

With all the smack-talking-word-of-mouth I've been hearing from "Green Lantern", it surprisingly didn't live up to be such a big pile of crap. Though I absolutely agree that it was littered with problems, at the end of the day, "Green Lantern" has inventive and flashy action that...
