This book about GL's transition to film can't possibly be accurate
Constructing Green Lantern: From Page to Screen by Ozzy Inguanzo (Universe, $35) has been sitting around for a while, but fills the same niche for superhero movies. Since his secret identity is a fighter-plane test pilot, there's a section on creating believable airplanes before the book shifts to the design of the crazy aliens of the Green Lantern Corps. The movie was based fairly reliably on the comic-book Green Lantern book, so fans of the monthly pamphlets may still enjoy this one.First, they don't mention how the movie was a disaster, and if they think anybody's going to be excited about a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, I think very few will care. Second, their claim the movie was based "fairly reliably" on the comics is superficial at best: more like it was based on the most recent iterations of GL that Geoff Johns foisted on everyone, and in the long term did not serve the Emerald Gladiator well at all. Biggest problem, surely, was the use of Parallax as the prime adversary in the movie, instead of Sinestro or even Lord Malvolio, a telling clue of just how cheapjack the filmmakers were being. Instead of relying on the really classic figures, they resorted to something very recent and all too obvious.
And this book was sitting around gathering dust on the shelves? Well, that figures. If it's about how it got made into a movie that nobody cared for, then no wonder the book did no better.
