Green Lantern

Green Lantern for Newbies

 

One of the major reasons it can be daunting for casual comic book fans to get back into comics or start reading a new character is just the ton of back story and continuity you have to be aware of. Honestly that´s one for the reasons I havent´t gotten back into the Flash even though I hear Geoff Jons has done some great work with the character.

Since there are more and more superhero movies releasing, viewers could end up with the same problem. Some know Superman, some know Batman, but not everyone might know the ins and outs of Green Lantern. So in anticipation of the upcoming movie release Warner Bros. has released a video  for Newbies. Giving us the low down of the characters, the superpowers and what makes the Lantern corp so special.

For fans there are quite a few shots from the movie nothing you havent already seen in the trailer but always interesting to see how they adapted a lof of the sometimes hard to grasp concept.

For the ladies (and some fellas) I guess there is quite a bit of Ryan Reynolds so still worth a watch. And better to be prepared when the nerdier part of the couple starts geeking out after dragginf you to the movies as the release of this much anticipated movie is just around the corner.

Episode 22: True Grit, Green Hornet and our Oscars predictions

New Episode 22 Upodcast: The Team reviews True Grit, Green Hornet in the 3D Dimension! More crack than an egg factory the team gazes into their Crystal ball and predicts the future winners of the Academy Awards. Check out the new epsiode after the jump!

 

First off, we talk about our review of Green Hornet, the film version of the comic book, of the radio show of the TV show. Whilst none of us could have imagined Michel Gondry directing such a feature, we’re damned pleased he has.  Released in the cinema graveyard slot of January, this has set the benchmark for superhero / comic book related films to come in 2011.  Green Lantern and Thor will need to be excellent to better Seth n Jay.

We then proceed from arguably the ridiculous to the sublime with genuine Oscar contender, True Grit (22min 36sec). Beautifully re-made by the Brothers Coen, what does the new version give us? Is it a Coen’s Western and if so, what kind of Western? Sadly we’ve been too lazy to watch the original John Wayne film (and in my case, any John Wayne film) and give you that comparison so you’ll have to make do with our thoughts on this one alone.

Finally we bring you our highs, lows and unknowns of the Oscars 2011 (42min 30sec). Gaze into our crystal ball as we steer you fundamentally in the wrong direction for who will win and who will lose. Make no mistake; if you use our guesses for gambling you’ll also be a loser on Oscar night.
