Green Lantern

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

As test pilot Hal Jordan, who gets a magic ring, Ryan Reynolds displays enough charisma to carry a major action franchise. But the film itself is disappointingly routine. It’s a relationship picture, in which the man learns to be a better man en route to saving the planet from the fire-breathing, soul-sucking Parallax. Blake Lively provides a welcome distraction as Hal’s ex. With the help of his ring, Hal can turn anything he can think of into reality. I just wish he’d thought up a better movie.

Cake

By Michelle Franco

Alternative-rock sweethearts Cake schooled their audience on tree identification and rocking out during their June 11 tour stop at the Cosmopolitan’s pool. Perhaps it’s fitting that while promoting their latest studio album, Showroom of Compassion, they turned the venue into something akin to a showroom, a classroom.
