Nope. It made not a lick of sense, and I don't imagine I'll ever watch it again, but somehow it managed to be quite a lot of fun, something that seems to have been missing from DC movies* for far too long.
*Note: it's possible that all the above might also be true of Green Lantern, but I haven't seen it.
Yeah, that pretty much nails it- it was fun
. I got the download and DVD free from Sky as a xmas prezzie, which always helps (I also bagged my dad's xmas voucher and blew it on Asterix and the Mansion of the Gods, which was enjoyable tosh too).
I'm only dimly aware of Green Lantern from the old animated Justice League cartoon which the missus was a fan of- I never liked Lantern and his Green Ring of Everythingness. I did watch the film, well... half of it then wandered off to do something more interesting. Mrs Deever watched it all and says it's pish- that's not to say you won't like it, of course.
I think one problem I had with DC was that they just seemed
to add different colours to supes to make new supes (this may not be totally fair as I'm largely ignorant of it all; but dammit- how many different coloured arrows and lanterns are needed before someone says- "hey, maybe it's a new idea
we need"). Also- Superman/ Supergirl/ Superboy; Batman/ Batgirl/ Batwoman... jeezo that must've taken ages
(and perhaps two
fag-packets) to come up with. Not enough mind-bending drugs; or else far, far too many.
I thought the link I posted was having a pop at the pretentions of the Academy...
Ah, sorry. I confess to not clicking the link- my bad. Reading that list though- there's a lot of stuff I wouldn't bother with, my favourite from it would probably be Pan's Labyrinth. Fury Road, like every other Mad Max film, really shouldn't work, but by Grud they all do!
