I was one that....

was against the cg suit, still am a bit, it's supposed to be a human manifestation, that shit looks alien. but they did do a great job, minus the mask, that just looks weird. But costume aside, this looks entertaining enough, seems that they crammed a lot of characters in there and maybe a bit of character development will be lost, but i am optimistic.

I said I can't wait

Truth is I have to wait. I have to pick my wife up at the airport this weekend. I could see it on Sunday but I will also have to grade some tests. Unless it turns out to be a hit I might miss this in the theaters and have to wait for it to come out on video.

1st: The uniforms look awesome, and it's a brilliant idea that the uniform is a construct of the ring so that it doesn't look like the standard spandex or body armor that we've seen over the last few years. Second: Ryan Reynolds kicks all sorts of ass a an actor. Those who doubt have not seen BURIED. 3rd: Blake Lively was quite good in THE TOWN. 4th: I really don't get everyone bitching about the CG. It looks fantastic. I would see this before I would see AVATAR (which, unfortunately and

It looks fantastic. I would see this before I would see AVATAR (which, unfortunately and reluctantly, I did see). 5th: Martin Campbell is responsible for some great action/adventure films. Those who doubt, see THE MASK OF ZORRO, which is a cheesy-at-parts but flips to dynamic entertainment. This isn't going to be a Chris Nolan BATMAN film. This is going to be more in the vein of THOR and IRON MAN, where it will have the origin, some bad-ass effects and quality leading-man turns from their stars.

lol you might want to watch out what you say about Batman and Chris Nolan..there are some fools here who will defend BB and TDK to their death beds lol..but i agree with you with what u said about martin campbell and you forgot about Casino Royale too and Goldeneye..i always though he would made a better Wally West/Flash but alas he settle for Hal Jordan

i don't think he was bad mouthing the nolan films, gust remarking that GL wont be as intense as those were, yet it will be entertaining.

Green Is Good

Green Lantern is not Superman or Batman. Different story, background and mythology. The production values look good and Martin Campbell is a competent director. Ryan Renolds can do both cocky and serious, Blake Lively is good eye candy, Parallax is the villan and Sinestro is set up for the second film. Again, let's wait and see the movie before we pass judgement.

NeoAnakin...

You're either an idiot or 12 years old. There is no one with a brain that has watched these scenes/trailers from the first to the last and thought this movie got any better. The only hope this movie has at succeeding at the box office is high school girls wanting to see Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) or adult women who think Ryan Reynolds is cute. That be it.

Whilst he is probably one of those two things, you aren't much further. I know quite a few people that have never seen 'Gossip Girl' that think this movie might be good.

As for me, I am on the fence. Some things look good, but some things look awful.

NeoAnakin: "There's nothing sweeter than serving all the hater's a nice big helping of crow!"

What will you do if/when the haters are proven right?

I remember, back when the 1st trailer came out...

that 90% of the people who visit this site bitched & moaned & whined & complained endlessly that Green Lantern was going to be a huge pile of shit!

One week before release and...Well Ain't that some shit...almost every single once-despiteful fan is now singing it's praises. (Remember...I said ALMOST)

I've said 2 things before & I'll say them again: 1. Green Lantern has always looked & will be Awesome! And 2. There's nothing sweeter than serving all the hater's a nice big helping of crow!

I agree with you NeoAnakinPotter. There are so many posters here who keep "jumping off the wagon, and who keep jumping back on".

Can't wait to see this movie prove the haters wrong.

This is my least anticipated superhero movie this summer. I think it could turn out to be pretty cool but there is also a big chance it disappoints.

As soon as something is more fantasy oriented (like MOST superhero stuff), everyone gets all nervous. Look, this IS NOT Batman & Robin. It's not Dark Knight either, but that is just fine. Green Lantern is scifi/fantasy. Dark Knight had a good tone for Batman. This movie looks like it gets the Green Lantern tone. Done. If it sucks, then we will all bash it - but till then its nice to see another DC hero get a shot at the big screen.

I don't understand all the hate for the movie... OK it looks a bit cheese and campy, but it goes with some of these movies. They can't all be "Dark Knight" or "Watchmen" serious. We need some FUN too in our sup'hero movies. And this one looks like just the kind of fun we need and love !

The second trailer was a bit better than the first, but I'm still fairly unimpressed with what I've seen. But then, I've said that about most other comic book films this summer and so far they have turned out to be great. I will wait to see what the reviews say on this one, but I don't think I'll be going to any midnights showings for this.

Fantasic!

I think this looks and will be the best superhero comic book movie of 2011. Look like everything a great comic book movie should be.

People wait for "word on th street"?

I don't get them. What do they expect from a movie like this? It's not a Lars Von Trier, Bergmann or Eastwood, it's a superhero film made just to entertain you!
I think the trailers made it very clear.

Besides, don't forget that it is directed by Michael Campbell (GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Mask of Zorro).

I don't get what you're trying to say. If it is entertaining, chances are it will get a good reception from both fans and critics, thus a positive word on the street. Critics don't just like works from famous directors. In fact, they're usually quite partial to comic book movies, so if it's well-reviewed, then I'll think positively about it, and if the reviews rip it to shreds, I'll come into it with low expectations.

It seems like my thoughts on green lantern change weekly. I go from "that looks awesome" to "that looks cheesy" at the drop of a hat. I'll still go see it no matter what the word on the street is but right now I'm at "meh"

I think the movie looks like a fun time at the theater. Martin Campbell is usually a good director. I'm not that knowledgable about the Lantern universe, but it looks interesting enough to me.

I don't know.

The more I see of this, the more my interest rises. The first footage looked like horse shit, but as more comes out, it's starting to look better. The CG still looks pretty bad though, especially that fucking mask. I'm probably still going to see it though, but I'll definitely wait until some reviews are released.
