Seemingly made for Green Lantern enthusiasts


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Even if June 17’s big-screen “Green Lantern” disappoints the comic-book hero’s hardcore fans, at least they’ll have “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights” to hold in their hearts.

Captain America

Star-spangled s**t.


Action

Rod Lott
Not long after “Batman” changed Hollywood in the summer of 1989, every studio wanted to have the next comics-based blockbuster. I remember visiting Penn Square Mall’s multiplex (as I did often back then) and seeing a poster for “Captain America.” The one-sheet was comprised of little more than a close-up of Cap’s iconic shield and a promise to arrive next summer.

Thriller

Rod Lott
Can a bad ending ruin an otherwise OK movie? In the case of The Factory, I believe it can.

Bullet to the Head

Action's once more on the Sly.


Action

Rod Lott
Lines of cocaine, tubes of neon, Sylvester Stallone: Is this 1986 or 2013? In his first solo vehicle since his Expendables comeback, Sly shoots for a Bullet to the Head, but the action film only breaks the skin, so to speak.
