The Green Lantern's 3 Degrees of Separation

Lanterns and the color green are buzzing on the silver screens now. We square off three flicks that are either have green or lanterns in them.








Green Lantern


Green Hornet


Raise The Red Lantern





Main Role



Green Lantern (Ryan Reynolds) is a conquering superhero.



Con man

Green Hornet (Seth Rogen) is a rich dude who pretends to be a hero.



Main gal (Gong Li) is Mistress No. 3 of a wealthy old coot.

Mask or no mask?







Unless you count Gong Li’s unmovable face as one.

Principal mode of transportation



Green Lantern’s real identity, Hal Jordan, is a US air force test pilot.



Green Hornet sits in a big black car driven by his chauffeur-sidekick Kato (Jay Chou).

Entire movie is set in China … duh

Got ring?



An alien power ring given to Green Lantern



No gay thing going on in this bromance


Are you crazy?No way, dude!

Which idiot would give his mistress a ring that his missus might find out about?


Got lantern?



The ring is charged by a special lantern like an iPhone.



Although Green Hornet looks like an intern next to Kato’s super gongfu.



 The concubine whom the master wants to *wink wink* bed for the night gets her lanterns lit.


Got clown?



Ryan Reynolds started out as a comedian.



Seth Rogen is still a comedian.


You kidding?Yes!

Man, have you seen director Zhang Yimou’s Curse Of The  Golden Flower (2006) with Gong Li’s heaving boobs and Jay Chou’s crap acting? Damn funny!
