GREEN LANTERN sends out crazy cool stuff to 100 folks nationwide... I was one of them...

Hey folks, Harry here - I was planning on taking a ton of photos today of the GREEN LANTERN loot that I was "chosen" to receive today. You see, Warner Brothers, in a rather cool (cool if you're a recipient, enraging if you're not) bit of promotion. Now, I'm not entirely sure who all got them, but I know Kevin Smith, Greg & HitFix, Frosty at Collider, Scarlett Johansson, Matt Damon, Kobe Bryant, Chris Pine, Jay-Z, Taylor 'Ab-Lad' Lautner, Taylor Swift and Ryan Reynolds... along with 89 others, including myself & apparently Jaime King - well we were chosen, allegedly by the Green Lantern Corps... which oddly enough I believe to be in close association with Warner Brothers' Marketing Department, to receive a really badass & limited - GREEN LANTERN RING from the movie, in a gorgeous presentation case. I got mine on Tuesday. I've been wearing it a bit too much. Seriously. I haven't geeked out on a promo item like this Green Lantern ring for a very long time. Brightly lit photos of it just do not do it justice. If you have the lights off, and you're typing on a computer screen... the way the faceted green jeweled top catches the light, arc-ing it through the ring as you type. SO COOL LOOKING. Then there's the center of the ring which seems to be designed to catch and reflect the light through a green stone, surrounded by a tiny golden ring - which I have to say feels incredibly wrong that anything yellow be within the ring... of course, it technically is GOLD, but it does give pause for a GREEN LANTERN geek... but it also aesthetically looks incredibly fetching. Now - about the photos. I fully intended to come home today from THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST (fucking amazing) - and begin taking a ton of photos before heading off to HARRY POTTER YULE BALL at the Alamo Drafthouse tonight, but I saw Frosty over at COLLIDER - really did a great job documenting visually the ring as well as the amazing FERRIS AIRCRAFT box... specifically - Hal Jordan's Box - which when you open the lid, you hear Ryan saying the Green Lantern Oath. Then in a secret compartment is a Hoodie, a Hat, a T-shirt and a bracelet all branded with the first DC Direct official movie merch... of which there will be tons more produced over the next year. I have to say, in terms of crazy cool promotions - this one is exceptionally cool. I mean. I have correspondence from the Green Lantern Corps choosing me. GEEK! Seriously cool. This isn't quite as cool as Sean Astin making me an official GOONIE in New Zealand... or the State of Kentucky making me a Colonel. But it is pretty goddamn cool!

    by Hint_of_Smegma

    Hoping it'll be a bit of fun, and while I hate the usual constant stream of negativity - this doesn't look great so far. I'll keep an open mind for the release but that trailer wasn't exactly too good....ah, I won't be happy until ROM: Spaceknight hits the screens.

    So, you post "first" when you aren't even first and then post again to mock Harry's physical dimensions. You must be the epitome of perfection. Saying "first" is more than old. Saying Harry is fat is a moot point. Isn't there some kind of MMA fight you must be missing? I mean at least you could appreciate their physiques! Thanks for coming by.

    by Royston Lodge

    Is the green light on your face being reflected off the ring, or is there a light source inside the ring, or is that light coming from a green lightbulb just outside the frame?<p> I'm genuinely curious.

I think in the 50's they called it "payola". Oh, on a completely different topic: looks like the weight loss is kicking in...good for you, man!

    You see, the idea is to get the swag, but keep quiet about it, give the glowing review so thoughtfully purchased by the marketing department with a few plastic shit-bits and odd & ends posted through your letter box - and no one is none the wiser, and you`re already tenuous credibility remains some semblance of impartiality.

    Jesus. "Trend-setters."

    by daggor

    So, lots of celebs and media folks get the ring, and they talk about the ring, wear the ring... hype the fucking movie. I am more than certain that the "goodie box" of sweatshirts and shit is not all that the "trend-setters" receive. Giving Jay-Z a ring and a big check is not going to make me see this movie. This film has officially been downgraded to "rent it from Redbox." Or, better yet, PAY ME to see that shit, DC!

    Keep the day job

    by film11

    Not being familiar with Gossip Girl, I decided to keep an open mind about the casting of Carol Ferris. But I have to agree that the line she delivers in the trailer was one of the worst I've ever heard. Yeah, it was out-of-context, but it was so terrible that I'm starting to dread seeing this. This movie should have been big-time, STAR WARS for a new generation, up yours AVATAR! seems like a Fantastic Four/Ghost Rider level disappointment. But gimme a ring and I'll change my mind.

    Ebert on Freebies

    by joelcrary

    "The critic should ideally never accept round-trip first-class air transportation, a luxury hotel room, a limo to a screening and a buffet of chilled shrimp and cute little hamburgers in preparation for viewing a movie. If you go, your employer should pay for the trip. I understand some critics work for places that won't even pick up the cost of a movie ticket, and are so underpaid they have never tasted a chilled shrimp. Others work for themselves, an employer who is always going out of business. Yet they are ordered to produce a piece about Michael Cera's new film. I cut them some slack. Let them take the junket. They need the food. Also, I admire Michael Cera. But if they work for a place that is filthy rich, they should turn down freebies."

    Harry's Review:

    by Righteous Brother

    I love the Green Lantern I really do. As I type this, I'm staring at a signed Alex Ross poster of the Green Lantern on my wall. I have the complete run of Gardner Fox Green Lantern's double bagged and boxed safely. But you know, for this film I was worried. Its not as easy a sell as Batman or Superman. He's known in geek circles but would the general public take to him? I got to the theatre early and sat in my favorite spot right next to my beautiful wife. She'd never heard of the green lantern until last week, so I took it upon myself to read to her every single GL comic I owned, I also showed her every episode of the Justice League - she's now a bigger GL fan than me! As the movie began, I started to giggle, big uncontrollable giggles. I feel Ryan Reynolds nailed Hal Jordan, sure there's been other GL's, but I always felt that Hal was MY GL. When Ryan recites the famous line 'In brightest day....' I admit my eyes welled up and huge tears started rolling down my cheeks and I started crying uncontrollably. I shall see this film at least another 8 times. Well done Warners I cannot wait to see GL2.

    Yeah. Ain't it...swag?<p> Harry, since you seem to have tapped the vein on all these goodies, I'm thinking you should share the wealth and do way more contests than you already do. Otherwise it seems like you're maybe just rubbing all your connections in our faces and showing off. Just my opinion of course.<p> But this sort of thing does remind me of this kid I once knew who had gotten that G.I.JOE Aircraft Carrier for Christmas and had it all laid out in his parents empty dining room. That little bastard would never let me play with the fucking thing, I could only stare into his front window and drool over it. His excuse had something to do with not getting the carpet dirty while his parents weren't home or some shit...whatthefuckever, that kid sucked. Don't be that kid Harold!

I'm sure all the "celebrity" reviewers do.<p>But few of them brag about it.<P>It's really unbecoming.

    The Phantom (1996) gave away rings too

    by AntiBeru

    Skull ring replicas made from some cheap metal... but not plastic. I forget where I got mine (local theatre?). The promotion didn't save the movie though.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 12:28 p.m. CST

    Shameful, Harry.

    by Batguy

    Using your website to brag about this smacks of you trying to make the rest of us feel bad. I've been defending you lately, but I can't see a justification for this "boast-post" outside of truly attempting to feel like King of the Geeks. I'm sick over this.

    Well said, sir. I agree completely.

    Hey, say what you will about Harry...

    by Ribbons

    ...but at least when he gets bought off, he tells everyone about it. Is that similar to journalistic integrity, in a multiplying-negative-numbers kind of way? I'd rather read reviews from someone I know I can trust, but in absence of that, I like to know when not to trust them. At least next summer when Harry is one of the few people in love with the incredibly mediocre Green Lantern, you'll be able to look back to this article and understand why.

    Give Harry some swag

    by Faust_8

    and he'll never say anything bad about the flick, just watch.

    Looking old, Harry

    Ebert got five rings, he's storing them in his jaw-sack.

    by Stuntcock Mike

    I guess Lantern will be getting good reviews round these parts.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 3:32 p.m. CST

    Way to go, Harry

    by PorkChopXpress

    Not that this swag would have made a cool contest prize for your readers, who are the reason you even get this shit sent to you in the first place. Then you skip a screening of Tron you could report on...why do you even run this site?

    Ah...the order of the Colonel's...

    by Chewbacca_Khan

    Okay, all those claiming to belong (including you, HeadGeek): Whose the governor on your certificate? Mine's Brereton C. Jones. <p><p> Anyone ever been to the Colonel's breakfast at the Derby? Being in the order doesn't really get you much, but I used to like waving my certificate around in a clenched fist and yelling, "I'm a Kentucky Colonel, goddammit!"....Then I went and had it framed. Sigh. <p><p> Also, Harry's lost weight. Nice of all you mean-spirited pederasts to notice and compliment someone on making a major change for the betterment of their health.

    What got wrong...

    by zinc_chameleon

    is that Carol Ferris becomes Star Sapphire, and makes her mission to kick Hal Jordan/Green Lantern's ass, which she does. Nearly kills the guy. Lois Lane, Mary Jane Watson and Rachel(the lawyer) were wimps in comparison.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 6:02 p.m. CST


    by Ribbons

    What you and all the Green Lantern fans on Cracked's website got wrong is that the article is only about the movie (and not even that, really). It's not about how derivative the character of Green Lantern is or what happens to some random character in a couple issues of the comic or whether he was invented before Iron Man.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 8:01 p.m. CST

    Two things:

    by Orbots Commander

    1. I'm wondering if we find any of these rings on ebay in a few weeks, because I'd get one, just to have. <p> 2. I'm not getting a good vibe from the movie. Warners is sending out tchotchkse to movie website guys already? Sounds like they're not too confident in their movie or the footage that they've seen so far.

  • Nov. 19, 2010, 9:33 p.m. CST

    Oh Harry... be better, because you can be!

    by Sporadico

    Harry, I've read this site for years and I still believe you are motivated chiefly by the prime, purest geek enthusiasm for new pop cultural artefacts on the horizon that appeal to you and like-minded people. But I encourage you to ask yourself - WHY post an article like this, boasting of your heady exclusivity in "The 100" - which must infer your NON-inclusivity as a common excited geek - the community who you purport to represent? I've read a lot of TBs, but surely far less than you - you MUST know that the response can only be jealousy, cynicism and rightful speculation that your opinion has been crudely prejudiced via the award of trinkets. No-one would confuse you with a serious critic - but I don't say that badly. You are a geek enthuso-critic, obsessed with news and scoop and detail. Great! That's actually pretty fabulous! But when you look down at that ring, can you really tell us, you don't desperately WANT Green Lantern to be good - a little MORE than you did before? I know us geeks set aside neutrality... but the difference is: I hope GL is great, but if they sent me that ring, that would never make me want it MORE. It would make me - and it should make you - want it LESS, out of pure, old-fashioned, healthy suspicion. In the best case scenario - and I'm willing to believe it - you're SUCH a geek that you've just been blinded by that ring and will give us a fair review. But I fear I'll never quite believe that review...

    Old Hat for Harry

    by cob666

    Who cares if Harry gets free gifts for movies and I don't believe for a second that his reviews could be influenced by something so trivial as a trinket. Harry hasn't written a decent review in YEARS. used to be that if Harry like a movie I knew it was pretty good but that has gradually migrated to if Harry likes a movie the odds are pretty good that it really sucks. I've never in my life seen anybody get so stoked over the lamest movies. And as somebody pointed out in another talkback, it's pretty disturbing that so many of Harry's reviews or posts are full of sexual references, like he's over-compensating for being a grossly overweight, homely geek who finally got married and needs to flaunt his sexual activity. If it wasn't for a handful of other reviewers that actually wrote intelligent and informative reviews this site would have tanked years ago.

    I think I've stumbled into the wrong website. I heard on the grapevine that this is the place for unbiased discussion on cool films that only a few out of the many had heard of. ...Thats not actually TRUE is it? Next thing you'll know there'll be A list celebs turning up trying to make an extra buck out of us.....HANG ON A MINUTE!
