In Which No Evil Shall Escape Your Obedient Serpent's Sight  
You know what?

I don't care if it's been over-hyped.

I don't care if parts of the previews might look a little iffy.

I don't care if Ryan Reynolds is playing Hal as a flippant jackass; this is, after all, Hal Frakking Jordan.

Deep down inside, all I care about is that the superhero who's been my very favorite since I was six years old had made it to the big screen in a sweeping special-effects epic.

I realized yesterday that, for the first time in more years than I can remember, I am genuinely excited to the point of impatience for a new movie, a new superhero movie.

It doesn't matter if it's good, bad, or indifferent.

Friday night, I'm taking my six-year-old self to see Green Lantern, and it will be awesome.

Good for you. I personally don't understand why no one else realizes that Star Wars was for six year olds too.

On the other claw, once Denny O'Neil and Neal Adams took over the Batman titles, six-year-old me suddenly found Adam West unwatchable.

And yes, Denny and Neal were a big part of making GL my favorite character, as well.

I ain't going. Unless it has pointless explosions, of course. :D

Superhero movie.

In space.

Built around an homage to E.E. Smith's Lensman saga.

It's all about pointless explosions!

The Mona Lisa Overhype
I agree that the film has been used to sell everything from McDonalds not-quite-food to toilet paper, but what matters is the quality of the film itself. Is "Green Lantern" going to kick ass, or will it be complete and total crap like the last Superman film? I'll just have to wait and find out.
I won't talk about the hideous and impractical costumes worn by the DC characters in their latest incarnations.

Re: The Mona Lisa Overhype
Nope. The quality of the film doesn't matter at all!

I AM SIX. SHOW ME GREEN SHINY THINGS AND COOL ALIENS!!
