In 30 Seconds: Green Lantern, Popper's Penguins, Super 8, Tree of Life!

Reel Faith

Now that “Reel Faith” is back in production, I have to face the sad truth that I no longer have the time to invest writing 30-second reviews in verse. We’re still doing 30-second reviews, but they’re more straightforward now. Here are the latest from both David and myself, including Green Lantern, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Super 8 and Tree of Life.

Incidentally, have you been watching “Reel Faith”? Episode 2 (featuring Super 8, The Tree of Life and The Hangover Part 2) is still up at the show’s website (and probably will be all weekend), and Episode 3 (featuring Green Lantern, Mr. Popper’s Penguins and Judy Moody) airs tonight at 8:30pm ET on NET (watch online).

Incidentally, as you can see from David’s 30-second review of Mr. Popper’s Penguins, we don’t always see completely eye to eye. Watch tonight’s show to see more!
