The Flop House Wiki


"He's America's top lantern-based superhero. Today on the show we discuss Green Lantern."

Movie Summary[]


Reckless test pilot Hal Jordan is granted an alien ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers that inducts him into an intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps.


By his own words, Stuart was "kinda off" for this episode. As it was recorded during the afternoon instead of the usually evening, we can probably blame this on a lack of proper inebriation.
Dan recorded this episode while sitting on an exercise ball, trying to improve his core. @01:05
This, combined with it being the afternoon, led to Dan being weirder than usual, offputting Elliott, who probably already has to deal with Afternoon Dan at work during the week. Also, instead of actually watching the movie, Dan took the chance to check his mail and play Sonic the Hedgehog on his iPad.
Elliott upset the Green Lantern Fanboys who populate most of the show's listening audience by slagging on the very concept and execution of the history of the "Green Lantern" comic. Possibly due to him being part of the House of Ideas, an author of Marvel Comics. Or he just doesn't think giant green fists are awesome.

Final Judgments[]

  • Bad-Bad Movie (Stuart) @36:35
  • Movie I Kinda Liked (Dan) @36:55
Possibly his favorite movie of all time.
  • Bad-Bad Movie (Elliott) @39:20
­If your life is seeking out things that you're gonna enjoy, and trying new things, and making the most of every moment, don't watch Green Lantern. But if you're just sitting around, waiting for death to save you from the endless monotony of time, go ahead–watch Green Lantern. That's the highest recommendation I can give it.
