YouTube has a new promotion for its new streaming service where you can watch recent movies for 99 cents — among them GREEN LANTERN. If you’ve been waiting for a budget-conscious way to watch Hal Jordan save the universe from an angry cloud, this is your chance.

You can also watch Harry Potter, Conan, and that movie where Ton Hanks lives out his biker fantasy by riding a scooter with Julia Roberts on the back.


  1. I’m reminded of the time I saw Ultraviolet with Mila Jojovinotgoingtobeworkinghereanymore.

    We had gone to see another film at a free screening and the copy was busted. So they gave us free passes. Then they said we could go see any other film playing that day. Ultraviolet was one none of us had seen and we were curious about.

    We walked out still feeling ripped off.

    I wish I had seen Green Lantern for that price, but even then I’d still feel ripped off. Maybe moreso than Ultraviolet.

    We knew GL was going to be bad, but not that… blah. Plus I swear there was barely a dozen people in the theater 7pm the opening Saturday.

    Both in the film and in its promotion, DC Warners really did nothing to make Hal stand out or be unique. It just came off as a generic forgettable superhero movie.

  2. I watched this at amazon.com (which also has it for 99c) and it is not as bad as the reviews made it out to be. It’s not great, but I enjoyed it more than Thor and Capt America.

  3. Haven’t seen Harry Potter, Conan, or Green Lantern yet, but I did see Larry Crowne, with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.

    I’m not a huge romcom fan, but that one was solid gold through and through. Definitely worth a buck to see it on the tiny screen.
