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.

There’s more to the Deftones than White Pony. Sure, that 2000 album may have been the last mainstream blip on the radar of the commercial masses for the hard rock/metal band, but with a balanced combo of old favorites and new material, their June 11 show at The Joint proved they’ve still got it.
