    Flop House or Jeans?

  2. Matt Wolf says:

    So did one of the Floppers have gas or was that round exercise ball that Dan was sitting on subtley make a low, rumbly, squeaky noise throughout the entire podcast? Am I the only one to notice this?

  3. Matt Wolf says:

    Also, I heard Stuart talking smack about MVC3 Magneto in the outro, so I am taking this as a challenge to 12 rounds of MVC3 over the internet. Bring it Stu! Choose your weapon PS3, Xbox 360 or sword canes at dawn.

  5. Gary Ancheta says:

    If you’re looking for a Green Lantern movie that actually takes all of your suggestions of what would make a better GL movie, check out the animated The New Frontier. It does everything you asked for a GL movie (even builds up Hal Jordan in a neat 1960s way) while also having a great performances of Brooke Shields as Carol Ferris and David Boreanez as Hal Jordan. Great Great animated movie.

  6. Matt Wolf says:

    Gary is right although I also like the Green Lantern: First Flight movie. The problem with the live action one is that it is just so boilerplate. Nothing is approached with any originality; it’s all so safe and predictable as to end up being bland. And too much goddamned CGI.
