: last night my band played a benefit concert for our drought stricken farmers, but before that I chilled out a bit and revisited #GreenLantern
Synopsis: Reckless test pilot Hal Jordan is granted an alien ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers that inducts him into an intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps.
So, has time been kind to Green Lantern? After all, in the space between this film and now Ryan Reynolds' popularity has certainly increased and the general public is more open to comic book adventures in space with weird aliens courtesy of Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor. Unfortunately, the answer is no. It's still quite dull, and several bad choices are made in terms of story, character design and villain choice. It's cheesy, and the CGI is average, especially for the suit and Parallax. It's a frustrating film due to missed opportunities and as has been documented, studio interference probably didn't help Martin Campbell to get his vision on screen.

Video quality is good, but surprisingly not top tier as it should be. Contrast is a touch too oppressive, some shots are a little soft and noise does creep in from time to time. It's still fairly good looking, but lacks the polish and detail of a really great transfer.
Well, at least the audio is impressive. We get full-bodied explosions with lots of LFE support, plenty of atmosphere (especially off world) and the rock-tinged soundtrack sounds great. There are no problems with dialogue reproduction either.
