Hilarious Review of *Green Lantern* from The Superficial - Turd Cloud Edition

I enjoy comic book movies IF they don't completely suck. I loathed Green Hornet, which was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I really hate it when I sit through a movie thinking that it HAS to get better than whatever and then it never does. My absolute favorite comic movie is The Punisher. The first one, with Thomas Jane. Best comic movie ever.

I've been debating whether to watch Green Lantern or maybe I should say, whether I should actually pay extra money for it. Nope. I can wait. This review, which had me laughing out loud, sealed the deal.

- The CGI. How the hell do you spend $300 million and wind up with scenes where it looks like Ryan Reynolds disembodied head is floating in front of a cartoon, and the ultimate galactic force of evil is a turd cloud with yellow fog? At some point during test footage, no one realized, “Shit, we made a live-action version of The Poop That Took a Pee?” Because I find that hard to believe.

You? What's the best and worst comic book adaptations that you watched and why do you think so?
