Watching "The Green Lantern" on HBO

Pat Robinson, who owns the Columbus Book Exchange, has been a friend of mine for a long, long time. He's also the go-to guy whenever I have questions about comic books because he's the local expert.

Last summer, with Hollywood makinh all the comic book heroes into movies, I asked with one was the best. He said it was "Thor." He was right. Well, that was the only movie I chose to see and it was a lot of fun.

"The Green Lantern" is on HBO and we're watching it now.

Do you think HBO chose it for tonight because it's St. Patrick's Day?

Ryan Reynolds, as the Green Lantern, is really, really cute. The effects are OK.

But I don't know how Blake Lively gets work. She's an awful actor and is only average in looks. I know that a lot of people think she's very talented and beautiful. I don't see it.

Pat said the movie was awful. I don't think it's awful, but "Thor" is a lot better.

I guess this summer, "The Avengers" will be the superhero movie. That one might be a lot of fun.

I guess we'll see.
