    "Green Lantern" Trailer: Concerns and Excitement From Around the Web

    When the "Green Lantern" trailer showed up online the other day, immediate reactions seemed so negative I thought we might have another "Avatar" on our hands. As in, here's a highly anticipated movie that's easily crapped on in initial ad form but which will end up making a lot of, well, green. Personally, I thought the movie looked like the worst comic book-based superhero movie since Roger Corman's "Fantastic Four," but that was a little harsh, even for me. In reality it's more like the 2005 "Fantastic Four," which still isn't great, but it's the best we can hope for with a movie that sends Ryan Reynolds back to "Van Wilder" territory and t...

    film review: HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART ONE

    In the old days of Saturday matinee serials, audiences faced with cliffhanger endings took comfort in knowing that the story would be resumed one week later. The same can’t be said for the latest Harry Potter picture, which offers much incident but no resolution: for that, we all have to wait until next year. If you’re a dedicated Potter fan, you’ll have to take what you can from this one—mainly, the pleasure of spending time with its leading characters and the young actors who play them. Following J.K. Rowling’s narrative, there are no scenes at Hogwarts’ Academy. This denies us the opportunity to revel...
