Green is the color of will

It feels so good to be updated with movie releases!  Being in the UK has deprived me of one of my favourite pastimes for three months that I'm relieved to get back to it!

Ever since I've found out that Ryan Reynolds was chosen for the role of the Green Lantern, I vowed not to miss this film.  I'd been a fan of his since watching Definitely Maybe and The Proposal (wow, from rom-coms to superhero -- whodathunkit?!).  Ok, I admit... I kinda ogled his naked self in a scene in The Proposal and that's how he earned my admiration.  Not for his acting, but for his buff hunky-ness.  (What, I'm a red-blooded female!)

 I have to say, the movie's got some cool CGI, costumes and action scenes.  Can I say that my favourite scene involved Reynolds floating supine with nothing but underwear on?  Hahaha!

Seriously though, I quite liked how the script is a little lighthearted and not too cheesy, but I'm afraid that I don't care much for Blake Lively.  Her performance leaves something to be desired.  Also, despite the coolness factor that the movie effortlessly induces, there's still that element of "Is that it?" feeling that I noticed when the credits rolled.

That's the reason it bombed at the box office, perhaps?

I don't care if the movie flopped, here's your ring back.  I'm laughing all the way to the bank, anyway.

Hi Emz, greetings from California! What a very cool blog. I love the movies. Haven't seen Green Lantern yet. We just saw Super 8. Vintage Spielberg and Abrams. And I saw 7 Year Itch. MM is an icon. So your blog is fun and covers subjects I enjoy. Great layout and good personal writing style. Welcome back home.
I write a blog about food, love, recipes and relationships. We just got back from Italia. Wrote about it in my blog. Please stop by and visit. Maybe follow. That would be cool.

Speaking of Ryan Reynolds, my girlfriend and I watched the movie the other day. I thought she was in it for the storyline. Turns out she had the same reason as you - to ogle at Ryan Reynolds' bod. She also noticed him being well-endowed. For crying out loud, was it really necessary? Red-blooded females, hayz.

Hello Emz, just finished watching GL. Just my opinion, he really can't act in the dramatic roles. I'll give him credit for doing romantic comedies or funny sarcastic movies. I'll leave it at that.

i agree. not sure how he'd do with serious roles (has he done any dramatic stuff, i wonder), but he is definitely in his element in light-hearted movies.
