|With great power comes great steroids. Er, physique. Er, responsibility.|
Coming to theaters this weekend, two major releases. One which will probably fade into obscurity, and the other which will probably shoot to the top at the speed of light. Mr. Popper's Penguins and The Green Lantern, respectively. I'll be honest, I'm not expecting much out of either film. From The Green Lantern, I'm expecting a lot of one-liners, a lot of loud action, and a showcase for Ryan Reynold's abs. Of course, all that can be fun, but it doesn't make for a great movie. It makes for a forgettable two hours in a dark theater. From Mr. Popper's Penguins, I'm expecting a lot of Jim Carrey doing his rubber-faced routine, a lot of thinly veiled crude humor, and penguins doing things that penguins probably can't do. The wonders of CG-animation never cease. And they hardly cause wonder anymore. But, never mind.
