Hands up who thought The Lego Movie would turn out good? I didn’t. I saw the charm in the initial trailer, but, kind of expected the film to end up being one of those kids films that end up being a series of dumb jokes wrapped around the most flimsy of stories. I mostly expected it to be a huge advert for Lego toys. Well, it is that. I’m pretty sure many people that have left the film have gone and purchased a Lego set shortly after. I probably would have if I had a spare few thousand pounds to buy what sets I could with that. So, like, one minifig and a small car, right? The Lego Movie represents everything that I should hate about films aimed at children. Its humour is puerile, its filled with nonsense, its a marketing ploy, it has that one catchy song that won’t fecking LEAVE MY HEAD!!!… It’s so frigging awesome. Click the link.

Been a lot of Green lantern activity during the short life of this here blog. I certainly featured the trailers for the movie enough times. Add to that the reviews of said movie and the First Flight animated film. If you read the title for this page and didn’t just randomly click on some link that led you here you’d see that I’m not done with everyone’s interstellar space cop just yet. Hell I could drag out my copy of Justice League New Frontier and get even more Green Lantern action but for now I think I’ll settle for a while with the review for Green Lantern Emerald Knights.
Well my most looked forward to comic book movie of the summer is here. The Green lantern movie is finally here. I’ve posted like a million… well closer to 3, trailers for this film. I themed a Trailer Park entry around it and also reviewed the animated movie the other day. Just got back from seeing Green Lantern and you know what, it wasn’t all bad. I guess I should go into more depth, which I will, after the jump.
So we’re 1 day away from the UK release of Green Lantern and as you may have guessed from this blogs content I’m quite looking forward to it. Shame that it seems to be a stinker then. Obviously my review is the final word on it though so don’t you go forgetting that! We have 3 green themed trailers for today’s Trailer Park. There’s a final Trailer for The Green Lantern, there’s a new parody trailer for The Muppets Movie and the last one, as usual, is a retro trailer surprise! So click the jump to see the trailers!
So first off, no, this isn’t a review for the new Green lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds. By some lucky stars in alignment sort of chance the animated Green Lantern movie First Flight came in the post this morning from Lovefilm. So I watched it and am now reviewing it kind of making this now an unofficial green Lantern Week hereon The Film Dump because on Friday i will be seeing the aforementioned Ryan Reynolds film and reviewing it on that night. So if you found this review because you were searching for Green Lantern movie reviews go forward a few pages and you should find it. So… on with the show.
The Green Lantern has managed to go from being possibly the worst of the summer blockbuster movies after it’s first trailer to being my most anticipated. Even more so than Captain America. Seeing the Wondercon footage really helped show that they are really going for large scale intergalactic space opera stuff here which is exactly what a Green Lantern movie should be. Anyway, here’s a new trailer with even more new footage. Click the link to view it!
