Hmmm, I disagree with that. Movies to me are a constant flux quality, and I don't give genres more or less leeway, because high quality has been shown in every genre. Something I will say is that...

That's a fair grade. In terms of the lower tier comic book movies, here's how my grades would be spread out, to help provide perspective. I consider C- "horrible" though. D is only slightly above...

Not sure if we can start comparing Green Lantern to other non-comic book movies, especially one decades old. I think what you can do is compare it to recent comic book movie adaptations, and compare...

Agree with that. I only watched it once, but I remember the feeling of leaving and being extremely sad at how terrible I thought the movie I just watched was.

To be honest, I buy Blu-Ray for the audio improvement. People go on about the crispness of the HD format in terms of video. But to me, the audio improvements are much more drastic than the video.

Heh, good article. Kind of funny how bad a movie or series of movies has to be in order for an actor to fall out of his fame. Just ask Mike Myers what it takes.

Oh, I will. Everything looks to be shaping up nicely though. Hal's mask still looks ghetto as hell. Not sure how they can make so much look so awesome but completely screw up his mask.

The reason people fuss is quite simple, because it looks stupid. There's really no complex thought going on, other than to voice a criticism. Quit letting it ruin your time enjoying the toes.
