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!)
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?
