RIPD did far more damage to RR's career than GL. It tanked at the box office and got far worse reviews than GL. Since then, Reynolds has only had a couple of low profile films. Hopefully, Selfless and Deadpool can reinvigorate his career.

Well, Reynolds has Blake Lively and his new baby probably helped him with not care too much on how his career went down hill.

I was watching Just Friends over the weekend and that was a great film for Reynolds.

And actually if the trade off is making the "bomb" of your career but getting your family, that's not bad, right? I mean if someone told me I could make a movie that would be roundly criticized but I would marry my beautiful co-star and father her child, I think I'd make that choice.

ohfortheloveofgod you cannot blame what's going on in RR life on the GL movie, lots of actors have been in what some would call a bad movie and it's never ended their/there/they're career, also once again GL wasn't a bad movie, could it of been better yeah sure i'll give you that but it wasn't The Last Airbender bad so

The movie has it's fan, surprising enough. I was wearing a GL shirt the other day and someone was commenting to me about how much they liked that movie. I felt kind of felt like a jerk breaking it to him that I didn't like the movie but read the comics.

Who could have imagined that an Ant Man movie would do far better at the box office than a Green Lantern movie would? Not to mention being a vastly better movie!

Nobody cares about Ryan Reynolds... they just think they do.

My father who is very casual fan even told me he liked it. Its not a terrible movie but it has its flaws like most movies out there. It was easily better than Jonah Hex but it gets a higher profile because of a budget that went awry.

I enjoyed it. It was amazing in3D visually at least. It took some big chances,that I can see how they did not appeal to a lot of people. That being said though I don't know why it is the comic book movie whipping boy.

I just watched it agin last night and I still really enjoyed it. Of course it has it's flaws but unlike previous DC movies featuring their "Big Guns" (Batman and Robin, Superman Returns, Dark Knight Rises) I can re-watch GL any time and not feel disappointed.
I think the biggest mistake was that they made Parallax the Big Bad Villain of the movie.
when I finished watching last night I thought....How hard can Sinestro be to defeat just having a Fear based power Ring when Hal already defeated Hector Hammond and Parallax within the span of a few minutes.
I think Hector Hammond should have been the Movies sole Villain. he would still be infected Influenced and mutated by what killed Abin Sur but Abin Sur's killer and the "Influence" would be undefined. we'd still hear Clancy Brown's voice affecting Hammond (telling him to kill Hal etc.) but we wouldn't know it was Parallax. Of course Hector's Power level would have to be increased several times (particularly his telepathic powers) Make the final fight between Hal and Hector be a Mental Power vs Will Power struggle.
The Overcoming fear aspect of course would have a mention here and there but it would be a great deal more philosophical. Hal could quote, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself" and have Sinestro basically say "You only say that because you have never seen the TRUE face of Fear!" Parallax wouldn't be mentioned by name but the serious fans would get the reference, while the Casual fans would gain interest in seeing how the story unfolds.
Have Each movie build up the threats.
Hector
The Weaponers
The Manhunters
Sinestro (That Might be a two parter....Part One showing Sinestro's fall from grace and part II showing his return as The wearer of the Yellow Ring)
Parallax and Finally
The Anti-Monitor which would also have Clancy Brown's voice and would be revealed to be the orchestrator of everything that had been going on all along.
