Is the extended version of Green Lantern better than the theatrical version?

Wait wait wait... i haven't seen Green Lantern and i don't plan to do so but... the big obnoxious Macho is the hero and the nerdy guy is the villain? I mean, that's pretty stupid but it's in a way also kinda original... usually it's the other way around.

Well, I was kindof hoping for The Three Musketeers, but was doubley dissappointed when I saw that he was basically going to rehash his original review. When he said ''I could spend another 5 eposides explaining everything that's wrong with Green Lantern'' I thought he was joking. Now, I'm starting to worry that he wasn't. Why a review he already did, when there are juicy new movies out there?

I am never interested in these films when they release a 'extended cut', unless that film is a beloved favourite. And certainly not when that film was a steaming turd...

That said, did anyone see Advent Children Complete? The final fight in that was awesome!

It's not original at all dude, the shits just coming full circle is all. Intelligence and cunning have always been mistrusted and devious elements of superenemies, clashing directly with the muscles and virtue of the American hero. Also, British Accents. Instant intelligence. Instant authority. Instant evil.

The ting that annoys me the most about the Green Lantern film is that the latest Green lantern comics (read: Geoff Johns taking over) have been fucking awesome. Like spine tingling, goosebump raising amazing.

Well Fuck me but that was redundant. Extended cut of sucky movie only adds more suck? Is the Green Lantern going to be this year's Expendables for you Bob?

Oh well, at least we've got Puss and Boots to look forward to next week!

okay so no paranormal activity 3, what about johnny english or the three musketeers... me and friends had a bet on what you were reveiwing and we all just lost... i actually wanna know about the 3 musketeers movie. i just got paid yesterday and i'm wondering should i save my monies and buy captain america and another movie next week or should i go see a movie and wait till the price drops a bit on cap...

EDIT; ah, checked his blog, neither the three musketeers nor paranormal activity 3 were shown to critics. I betting johnny english wasn't either so there ya go. He shoudla revenge reveiw of all the movies released this week just spite the lasck of press screenings. BTW not seeing anything this weekend buy cap on day 1.

Aaaaw, come on, it's not like there isn't anything else to review. How about The Three Musketeers? It was a B movie with interesting action scenes and a battle between steampunk airships, isn't it more interesting than reviewing a slightly different version of a movie that was already reviewed?

Sorry Bob, but I STILL have to disagree with you. I saw Green Lantern, and it was pretty damn good, for a comic book movie. It wasn't as good as Green Lantern: First Flight, but it was good for what it was.

Anyone who went in seeing this movie and expecting Citizen Kane, Ben-Hur, or It's a Wonderful Life either needs a lobotomy or electroshock therapy.

If you're wanting a review of Paranormal Activity 3, check out Spoony's website. Just be prepared for a long review. It's about an hour long.

Ok, ok, ok, we get it.

The Green Lantern film was shitty, but I feel that this still needs to be said...

So are the fucking comic books.

Well the original version was massively disapointing so I don't think I'll be forking out for the extended edition anytime soon.

On a side note I loved the extended cut of Kingdom of Heaven, it added probably over an hour of extended footage that was not only excitiing but also made every characters goals and motivations that little bit clearer and just goes to show how brutal the cutting room can be. All in all it takes an average film and makes it a true modern epic - everything I could hope for with an extended cut version.

I do own the Extended Lord of the Rings. Twice. Couldn't resist the BluRay edition.
That said, not surpriced it sucked in extended form too. You can't salvage everything. And yeah, Hammonds path to villany is questionable, he seems much more sympathetic than Hal untill he suddenly goes "yup, I'm evil now"

Are you seriously still bitching about people finding out your secret club of movie fandom, Bob? For god's sake man, move on! I thought you got all that immature garbage out during the Scream review.

Fucking seriously man. It's just depressing to see a grown man so traumatized by such insignificant things in his past.

Sucks that MovieBob wasn't shown Paranormal Activity 3 to review it. Granted, it might be worse than the last film, but I have a strong feeling it would be far better than watching Green Lantern - Extended cut or not extended. Either that, or the Three Musketeers. Probably would be a better worth to Bob's time and everyone elses.

Am I the only one who went into this review thinking "oh man, here we go."? I question the necessity of driving this point home multiple times.

Then again it reminds me of what i learned in a coaching class: reminders are extremely valuable. We need to remind ourselves not to let this happen again BEFORE it does.

Your oppinion on the comics may be what they are, personally I love me some GL, but this movie was not only bad in it's own right, it was also a disgrace to the comic.

You know I wasn't planning on seeing this movie ever but the way you keep hating on it makes me want to see it just to see how awful it is...

This is the problem. At this point, post-Spider-Man, post-X-Men: First Class, with the Avengers on the horizon, this phrase never should be tacked onto an opinion to justify the film being gelatinous crap. That's like saying Super Mario bros was good, for a videogame movie. If movie producers are going to use a property, they better have the talent and quality actors to churn out something worth seeing and not worthy of scorn.
