So, hey, yesterday was my birthday. Somehow, Warner Bros. knew this and decided to release the Green Lantern movie. I saw it last night.
Honestly, I don't get where all the hate is coming from. It was not that bad! It was actually ok! I watched the whole thing wondering where the haters started hating, and I never saw anything worth getting enraged about.
By no means was it a perfect film. There were some pacing issues and a lot of it seemed to go by rather fast when I would have rather it spent the time to establish what was happening a little more. But, so what? I was still entertained. It was a fairly good adaptation of the Green Lantern story, and it was cool seeing all the other characters like Sinestro and Kilowog in a big film like this.
Was it as good as Thor? Maybe not. Thor was really good. But I'd say Green Lantern was almost as good, and it's a fair comparison since both movies are super hero origin stories with lots of cosmic spacey stuff.
So really, from my perspective, I just don't get why the critics seem to hate this movie so much.
Oh, wait, yes I do get it. Critics are jerks and stupid and also dumb.
Anyway, Green Lantern was alright so my birthday was good.
