The first screening of Martin Campbell‘s Green Lantern happened on Sunday night in Hollywood, and the early response so far has been very positive. Of course none of this offers any insightful criticism for the movie, just a lot of fanboy gushing about how excited they were to actually see a Green Lantern film.
Read some tweets and quotes below.
Robert Meyer Burnett (director of Free Enterprise) on Twitter: GREEN LANTERN fucking ROCKED. The 3D was AWESOME. As a lifelong DC fan, the opening ten minutes made me squeal like schoolgirl. … Believe it. The first ten minutes will make you believe. The 3D is also outstanding. … GREEN LANTERN was terrific fun. The fact that it works at all is a miracle, but it really does cook. The first ten minutes sold me. … The 3D in the opening ten minutes is wonderful. But YOU MUST see it with polarized glasses. The color is great. … It’s not campy at all. The humor is earned. And Mark Strong as Sinestro was AWESOME. … I LOVED GREEN LANTERN. Don’t know why, but it kinda’ felt like THE LAST STARFIGHTER. I know…”Huh?!? What?!?” … it really did feel like an 80′s movie, circa ’84… Weird. … BTW…In LexG parlance…Blake Lively…LOOK AT HER. SMOOOOOKING hot.
Natasha Eloi (Space Channel) on Twitter: ”So-Frakking-Un-Believable!!! I’m still spinning w/ delight & utter fangirl satisfaction!! #GREENLANTERN IS GO!!!” … #GREENLANTERNCORP be sure to stay until the end of the 1st credit roll for the BIG PAYOFF!! U won’t be disappointed!! …. Torn between #MarkStrong as #Sinestro & #RyanReynolds as #GreenLantern on who rocked more! Hmm? Think we have a tie. Better be a sequel;)
David A. Arnold (comedian) on Twitter: Just saw Green Lantern…GOOD SHIT!
Ashley Williams (Good Day Sacramento) on Twitter: “Just saw Green Lantern…amaz!”
Renee Bargh (Australian EXTRA) on Twitter: “Just Saw my 3rd movie for the weekend ‘The Green Lantern.’ Blake Lively looked Smokin as a brunette and Ryan didn’t look too bad either ;)”
Every comic book movie this summer has gotten really positive “early praise” and then not lived up to it. I’m going to assume this movie is terrible just so it might for once exceed my expectations.
