Advance word hasn't been good, but tonight I finally saw Green Lantern, one of the most anticipated superhero movies of the summer. A fair and balanced opinion, after the jump. Sort of.
Before I get into the film, apologies are in order. Last week, I posted a competition in which I asked you to illustrate your own Green Lantern character in exchange for some prizes I was offered. Well, it turns out, after much jumping through hoops, Warner Bros weren't prepared to let go of their cheap tat quite so easily after all. Luckily, with the help of lovely and gracious PR people, I still got a few prizes to give away.

Then, after watching Green Lantern, I realised I could kill two birds with one stone. Without further ado, here is both the winner of my unofficial 'Design a Green Lantern' competition AND my review of Green Lantern.

Congratulations to Ben Robins for introducing us to ASS-FACE ("He's often said to be full of shit"). Get in touch for a free t-shirt, Ben.
