It's okay, really. I am an unapologetic Green Lantern fan, and believe me, over the years, there are a lot of things us GL fans should probably apologize for.
You certainly don't have to explain, above and beyond "I'm just not that into GL"; I have a long-standing principle of Not Listening To Negative Reviews before I go see a movie that I really want to see, because when I do, I keep looking for all the negative things the reviewers pointed out rather than just enjoying or critiquing the movie based on my own, unvarnished reactions.
For the record, I don't think that Green Lantern is going to come anywhere near the high-water mark of superhero movies (which is, IMNSHO, somewhere between Iron Man and The Dark Knight).
If it's just a bad movie, I'm fine with that. I'm an aficionado of bad movies.
I'm pretty sure of two things:
- This is not going to be as bad as the Worst Superhero Movie I've Ever Seen.
- This is not going to even come close to being the worst Green Lantern Story I've Ever Seen.
So, all in all, I'm probably going to be a pretty happy nerdboy this e'en.
In part because I've set my sights low. La la laaaaa.
