Green Lantern (2011), a recap (part 5 of 9)

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.

The Cinema Slob is ready to rock (hah!) as he reviews The Scorpion King, a spin-off film from the popular Mummy franchise. Often looked down upon for simply being a cheap attempt to prove Dwayne Johnson could be believable as an action star, the Slob finds that there's a lot more going on in this movie. And most of it involves a perpetually half-naked Kelly Hu.

Since the amazing special effects of Speed Racer has left the Slob blind, he's decided to take a look (no pun intended) at a movie featuring a man with the same disability. Check out the Slob's state-appointed defense of Daredevil!

VIDEO: Brother Bear (2003)

Watch as Joey has a hard time distinguishing this movie from Pixar's latest movie (and big disappointment) Brave. Both have main characters that transform into bears and need to go on journeys of self-enlightenment, or some bull crap like that. Oh, but this one has two Canadian bull moose, with one played by Rick Moranis, which is a clever bit of casting, eehhh?

What has: swords, sorcery, and a female lead who wears nothing but sequins and chiffon? The Mummy prequel The Scorpion King, which also handily features Actual Funny™ and lots and lots of half-naked men. She may not love it, but Ursa's probably not going to be too disappointed in this one.

The Island (2005) (part 3 of 3)

I was always a little apprehensive about championing the cause of Clonus as being ripped off by The Island, because basically, I hadn't seen The Island. Anyone could look at the plot outlines and see the obvious resemblance, of course, but I could never really be sure. At least, not until now.The Island is finally out on DVD, complete with a commentary track from Michael Bay. After watching the movie twice and listening to Bay's commentary, I'm more convinced than ever that The Island is directly based on Parts: The Clonus Horror. In fact, there are several details and plot points in The Island that make absolutely no sense except as an homage to Clonus.
