Green Lantern: Animated Series

For once a show that really explored the Green Lantern Universe, and the animation grew on me, I’m not usually too keen on CGI but this combination they got it right. The characters really filled their place with the right type of drama. Only to be suddenly cut off and now no more GL when there is still so much to explore and so many enemies to face. The thing about the Green Lantern Universe is that they have so much material to work with that they can literally keep this show going for decades with an excellent story line, but it is yet another show that met it’s end prematurely.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

For Five Years I have been following this show and craving every episode, I just love the way it was developed and now, I have to wait until the movie next year or the new animated series which is called Star Wars Rebels. I don’t know where its going to pick up but I loved the characters in this show, especially the bad guys, they really put a lot of depth into the characters, it doesn’t feel like some kid show. I’m almost done with season five, I just hope they didn’t leave us hanging, now that Disney bought it out I just hope they don’t turn it into a kiddy show and keep the dignity that the Star Wars animated franchise has.

Young Justice

They built an amazing storyline, which had a hell of an ending, I was honestly expecting more for next season only to find out that it has been cancelled. They sort of picked up where the original Justice League left off and that was an amazing show too, now I don’t know what they have planned but for something as serious and as well done as these animated shows, they have some big shoes to fill.

Review: Green Lantern Emerald Knights

As the home planet of the Green Lantern Corps faces a battle with an ancient enemy, Hal Jordan prepares new recruit Arisia for the coming conflict by relating stories of the first Green Lantern and several of Hal’s comrades.

I still get chills when I hear the Green Lantern oath, there is something about that just prepares you for battle.

“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!“

This animated movie came out in the summer and I for one love all of them, and this is a little different then the usual Green Lantern story. You get introduced to Hal Jordan as a familiar character but not a story about him, its more about the Core and the Green Lanterns. What was entertaining is that you get introduced to a few different characters in the Green Lantern Core and see how it developed, and the story develops around their current threat that faces the Green Lanterns. The animation is simple reminds me of the animated show the Justice League and it isn’t as good as Green Lantern First Flight but still very fun to watch. Made me put my Green Lantern ring on and see if it works, doesn’t hurt to try.

The Green Lantern Models

I made this model purchase before the movie even came out, I was so excited to see the Green Lantern since GL is one of my favorite characters from DC Comics for a long time, by far one of the best. I just couldn’t wait for movie so I preordered the Hal Jordan statue using his ring, and the Green Lantern Lantern itself which came with the Green Lantern ring.

I was surprised how cool the Hal Jordan statue was, very detailed look and the green punch forming around him, I loved it. Then Lantern was amazing, it looked exactly like the one from the movi and the added bonus was that the ring fit perfectly, and if you bring the ring close to the Lantern it surprised me, the Lantern lights up which is insanely cool. This is displayed proudly with the rest of my comic and movie memorabilia. Can’t wait for the GL2 to come out, they said its supposed to be darker and edgier which is exactly what it needs to be and they have so much story to use from the Green Lantern comic books, I just can’t wait.

Review: Green Lantern

A test pilot is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe.

I have been waiting to see this movie for a very long time and I was not disappointed. Ryan Reynolds made Hal Jordan his own character and did a great job with it. For any comic fan they will know the story and they do stick to the original Green Lantern story and with some very nice special effects and graphics. I loved how they portrayed the Green Lantern and the Lantern Core, but I would have liked to meet a few more of the Green Lanterns and get used to their characters but they tried to keep it revolving around Hal Jordan. It was a bit slow at first since he is discovering the powers and what he can do but once the action picked up it was amazing. To those who follow the Green Lantern animated movies we do know what is next for the movie but I hope they do something very different since they already introduced the character and for Green Lantern they don’t need to stick to Earth or any one setting. Fun movie and loved the action, and especially the suit.

Green Lantarn @ ComicCon

GLPoster

For those who don’t know, Comic Con is the biggest Comic Fan convention in the world taking place in San Diego, and many big movies are previewed their with panels from all the actors, producers, directors, and writers. And luckily over the last few years comics are taken more seriously thanks to Batman & Iron Man, but now the movie blockbuster of next summer is Green Lantern. First thing first, I’m a huge Green Lantern fan, him being my favorite comic book character, a ring the has unlimited power, and its only limits is your will power and imagination. New of the movie got me excited but I wasn’t sure of Ryan Reynolds, since I’m used to him being a comedian, the funny guy, the guy that made us one of the best comedies period, Van Wilder, and I also loved him in Smokin Aces, but as the Green Lantern I wasn’t sure. Its a story you have known all your life, and now that it’s coming to the big screen, I just hope that no one screws the movie up, but after that Comic Con panel video below, I have to say that I think Ryan Reynolds will rock as Hal Jordan the Green Lantern, especially at the 1:32 mark.

Review: Green Lantern: First Flight

Its been a little while since I have seen an animated movie at this level, I’m a huge fan of the Green Lantern but the producers and directors of this movie have done an excellent job with this piece of art. The storyline was well planed out, it is the story of the Green Lanter, Hal Jordan becoming the first Green Lantern of Earth and the short story of the Lantern Core and the Guardians. You get most of it from the start with lots of entertainment as it develops, and you are pulled into the story but the animation is something else. They really put their time in to make sure they had quality animation and this was in fact amazing quality, and for any fan of comics or who relatively likes this, this is a top rate animated movie which shouldn’t be missed.
