Latest 'Green Lantern' Trailer



It looks like DC has a better idea of where it's going with Green Lantern. All is left to do now is to wait until June.

Looks good. Not a big Ryan Reynolds fan but I like some of director Martin Campbell's previous work, most notably Goldeneye.

I would have assumed you would have said Casino Royale before Goldeneye.

Looks better but still not enough to get my ass in the movie theater ;)

I had no idea Martin Campbell's directing this. I like Casino Royale a lot but I'm just not crazy about the look of this flick... it's just slimy/gooey looking. It's a rental at best.

 Yes, still looks like a 2003 video-game at times ;)

It's looking a lot sharper than it did in the earliest trailers. I'm not holding out on a great film but the 3D trailer may actually get me into the theater. 
Every time I see something related to the Green Lantern movie I feel...
underwhelmed. I keep hoping that I'll be surprised when the movie is
released but this new revelation has not given me hope. Read more: http://techland.time.com/2010/10/22/green-lanterns-movie-homebase-revealed/#ixzz1QsXMZt5D
The trailer was better than the film. But still, it did have legs - http://www.comicbookandmoviereviews.com/2011/08/green-lantern-shines-light.html

Review: Anomalisa

Weird is rarely used as a good quality in film criticism, but few words so completely describe Charlie Kaufman’s work as weird does. All of his films are a window into his very particular worldview, and that p.o.v. is certainly unlike anything seen in pop culture. For that reason, Anomalisa became an entry on many most anticipated lists for 2015. That Kaufman chose stop-motion to tell this story made the picture an event. So it came as a disappointment when the film was one of the year’s more mundane efforts.

Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind have an energy and heart at the center that is not present here. Previous collaborators like Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry were able to temper the overwhelming negativity Charlie Kaufman occasionally falls prey to, but, this time, the writer doesn’t have a director to rein things in. In all of his efforts to create an experience that is both familiar and alienating, Kaufman may have accidentally created something host…

Review: The Salvation

Westerns have never recovered from the oversaturation that killed off viewer interest decades ago, but every now and then a gem pops up. Recent successes like The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, 2007’s 3:10 to Yuma and the Coen brothers adaptation of True Grit all did well because they tweaked the genre slightly, but director Kristian Levring goes with an old school approach. A faithful recreation of those revenge Westerns made so popular in the 1970s, The Salvation envelopes many elements of previous Clint Eastwood classics and wraps it into a tidy package.

The Salvation starts in on the central dilemma, joining Jon (Hannibal‘s Mad Mikkelsen) at the train station where he awaits the arrival of his wife and son. Jon and his brother, Peter (Mikael Persbrandt), have lived in the United States long enough to build a hospitable life for their family back in Denmark. This homecoming should be a sweet moment to establish the family important to Jon, but fate plays out…

Review: Selma

It may surprise many that Martin Luther King Jr. never received the celluloid treatment prior to Selma. Sure he had been mentioned in other historical pieces, but short of documentary footage, King was never given center stage. Quite shocking given the man's legacy and the lingering effect of his efforts still felt today. Several years of production and a director change later, Selma arrives as the film worthy of the man.
