    Ug. This doesn't look very good.

    Yeah, even the new trailer doesn't help.

    'Course, he's one of the most pointless super-heroes ever given its own storyline. I liked the cross-over w/ Green Arrow when I was a kid but still dug Arrow more...

    A lame super hero portrayed by an annoying and lame comedic actor...throw in cartoon cgi...how can this be anything other than wonderful? If they made him gay maybe that would help.

    That's not the actual costume, but yeah...I don't have high hopes for this one. It's mainly the completely CGI environment of Oa that troubles me. Just like with STAR WARS I-III it seems as though the creators feel that because they can cram loads of stuff into the frame that they should. It's too much. I feel like CGI almost always works best when blended with real world environments - build some sets and the put in some particulars with the computer instead of creating practically everything CG.

    With that said, I'm not too bothered by Reynolds being cast, except for the fact that he has beady eyes that are too close together, and they appear even beadier and closer in the mask. I think Mark Strong makes a great Sinestro though.



    I also have to say that I'm happy they're sticking pretty close to the comics in character design as well.

    Mark Strong is a good choice and I don't know that I have an issue with Reynolds, per se (he doesn't really bother me). The character design looks close to the Hal Jordan style stuff, so I guess that's a plus, but yeah, soooooooooooooooo much CGI in that trailer, and not the good kind.

    This is going to look like a cartoon.

    I actually didn't realize he was Canadian. That's as good an excuse as any though.

    One other thing about the 4 minute promo clip, and presumably about the movie itself - the rolling staccato strings on the soundtrack. Since SPIDER-MAN it seems like that has become the unofficial music for most superhero movies. I understand that it helps build tension and excitement, but it feels like studios and producers are telling their soundtrack composers that they need to use it in order for people to know they're watching a superhero flick. Personally I'm sick of it.

    I'd have rather seen them go Golden Age Green Lantern.

    I understand and realize that it's not as marketable and that they want a big expensive sci fi blockbuster type movie here, but how cool would it have been?



    It'd also be neat if like Noland said they worked some of the Green Arrow stuff into the storyline. I don't think that's gonna happen though.
