Green Lantern

Emmy says:
Needed more showing and less telling. Fun. 7/10.

We watched this because of Film Joy’s Deep Dive of this film. It made me want to give this another shot. It has the bones of a good story – but it fell into the same traps that earlier superhero films did before Marvel finally worked it out: backstory by narration, bad CG, flat characters. Essentially superhero movies of its ilk were embarrassed because of their source material. What the current crop worked out was that there was nothing to be ashamed of: lean into it seriously. Given that, this movie is actually fun and there are great character moments. It’s not as bad as you remember it, it’s really just the CG that lets it down. 7/10.
