Previously: Hal pleaded his case for humanity… to the Guardians, oddly, instead of the big creepy cloud who just showed up on Earth looking to exterminate the human race. Also: Hector died, and no one really cared.
Previously: Hal was transported to the planet Oa where he received a beatdown from Sinestro, causing him to quit the Corps and Refuse the Call of this particular Hero’s Journey. Back on Earth, Hector gave his students a lesson… in how thinking of him as a "freak" gets your ass shotputted across the classroom...
Previously: After beating up a former coworker or two or three, Hal got yanked to the planet Oa, where he received a brain-dump from Tomar-Re about the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps and got to witness Sinestro give a half-hearted pep rally speech. Meanwhile, Hector Hammond was infected by what might have been Parallax’s jizz.
Previously: Abin Sur got dead, Hal got Abin’s ring, and a very svelte Amanda Waller got Abin’s body, which she turned over to creepy Hector Hammond, who got to perform the very first (real) alien autopsy.
Previously: Abin Sur was surprised at home by a visit from his old friend Parallax, which left him nearly dead and on his way to Earth to find a new Green Lantern. And we met Hal Jordan and watched him do a test flight that left him nearly dead; his plane crashed and presumably so did Ferris Aircraft’s stock...
Previously: An omniscient voiceover gave us a crash course on the planet Oa, the Green Lantern Corps, Sinestro, Abin Sur, and the Guardians of the Whole Damn Universe. Meanwhile, a big yellow roaring cloud named Parallax managed to free itself from a what’s-lower-than-minimum security prison on Ryut...
The list of cancelled and aborted live-action movie adaptations of DC superheroes is a lengthy one, and the attempts at bringing Green Lantern to the big screen surely make up a big chunk of that list. Warner Brothers/DC considered making a Green Lantern movie as early as the mid-1990s, according to...
“I began to wonder if the sun really needed saving at all, or if these eight people were simply sent 93 million miles away so they could do the least amount of harm to anyone else.”
“Most action films are ludicrous to a degree, but this one is almost a cartoon. I felt about as much suspense over Hit-Girl’s fate as I feel concern for Wile E. Coyote’s health after a boulder falls on him.”
We dig into Joshua's Movie Madhouse archives (back when it was known as Anarchy at the Movies) for Disney's underwhelming adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel that inspired countless sci-fi adventure films, John Carter, starring Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins.
Now equipped with an alien ring, the Cinema Slob heads to Chicago's sci-fi convention Cyphan, to get help from the only man who knows comics, the Last Angry Geek! It's a fitting end to Superhero Month, and the first proper "crossover" from the Slob.
It's time for Anarchy at the Movies, where your host Joshua the Anarchist looks at (relatively) new releases. In this installment, a great light has gone out in the universe: it's the fans' hopes for a good Green Lantern movie!
In this episode, special guest hosts Sherlock Holmes (portrayed by Sofie Liv) and Dr. John Watson (portrayed by Sursum Ursa) work together on one final case: examining the 2009 Guy Ritchie movie based on their exploits, starring Robert Downey, Jr., Jude Law, and Rachel McAdams. You may think you've seen it all, but have you ever seen a movie reviewed in the first-person? I think not!
In brightest day, in blackest night, no crap movie shall escape Sofie's sight! Let those responsible for this CGI blight beware her powerful blonde Danish might!
