Green Lantern

While on a business trip, I saw Green Lantern in 3D in order to hang out with colleagues for the evening.  You must know how much that pained me.

Evil 3D aside, I hadn't planned on seeing the movie since I know nothing of the Green Lantern and Ryan Reynolds has a habit of being a smarmasaur.  The movie was trite and featured poor writing, characters, and action.  The only noteworthy aspect was Peter Sarsgaard, who continues to be excellent in every role he plays.  I loved his creeper look, emotional scars, and crippled-body/super-intelligent motif.

Tonight, I decided to look up some history on Green Lantern on Wikipedia, but didn't see much that interested me.  I got a notion that there is some good lore and stories in the GL universe based on the tragedy that was the film, but the Wikipedia articles didn't back that up (in my opinion).  Holler at me if you're a Lantern fan.
