The Violent Blue blog***Comics, Horror and Pop Culture***Updates Tuesday through Friday (and occasionally at random)

I see Green Lantern is getting pounded by the critics – even the comic media is ripping it apart. That’s a pity, because it’s not nearly as bad a film as they make it out to be. I stand by my statements, It’s a great GL movie, it’s a good comic film, but not a good blockbuster. I think the biggest disappointment is that for a 300 Million dollar film, we don’t realy see that money on the screen. The CGI is subpar in places, the sets aren’t that extraordinary, and there’s actually too much green screen. It ends up feeling like a direct to video movie than a summer night out at the theatre. Still, I can’t believe that writer Mark Millar called this “The worst superhero film ever”. Did he miss Batman and Robin? Perhaps he wasn’t aware of the Nick fury movie starring David Hasselhoff? Really? Green Lantern is worse thant the 1990 Captian America???

Hmmmm. I think there’s a comic strip in all of this……We’ll see what happens in Violent Blue on Monday.
