In darkest night Paul, June, Jason, and Paul Rust went to see Green Lantern. In brightest day they reunited to figure out what the hell happened. You'd think that the art of the comic book movie would be perfected by now, but with it's awful CGI, ultra-quippy dialogue, and awkward pacing and storytelling, Green Lantern is certainly the exception. Even Jason who has read the comics didn't understand what was happening most of the time! If this film left you just as confused and unhappy, come commiserate with the gang and hopefully your questions will be answered. No guarantees though.

What the hell is wrong with you guys? The car on the race track came from his nephew's Hot Wheels race track in his bedroom. None of you got that?

You could fill every week of this show just covering terrible superhero films.

I can usually tell from a commercial if a movie is worth seeing. The commercials for Green Lantern really turned me off, so thanks for confirming my suspicions.

How did they get the green light to make a second movie? Didn't this movie lose a ton of money??

Well played Julia. That's also the only possible explanation for making a sequel.

This movie was way better than Piranha.

Not to be too nitpicky, but the "starfighter" he gives his nephew is the F-104 Starfighter, which is in fact an airplane.

But yeah, this movie was awful.

Love the show guys. The movie was not good, but your knowledge of the Green Lantern mythos is worse. Classic character that has stuck with comic fans for half a century. You should have got Geoff Johns, writer of the most recent Green Lantern comic series, who is a genius to come review the film. Still love you though, but Hal Jordan is a great character as a drawing and cartoon at least.
