I feel very conflicted with this movie, on one hand it was a perfect end to a Bond era but on the other hand it was kind of an average movie. Now don’t get me wrong there was nothing wrong with the movie and it was super fun to see in theaters, but if I didn’t have Regal Unlimited I probably wouldn’t see it a second time.
I just felt like it had everything that was required of it and that’s it. It had the nice cars, cool gadgets, and of course the bad ass fight scenes. But all of that is overshadowed by the ending. Not necessarily the end of the actually movie but more of the fact that this was the end of Daniel Craig’s Bond. Since this was the end of the only Bond I personally watched I guess I was expecting some type of huge crazy send off and so the ending I got was just satisfying but not amazing. So all together I would give it a 7 out of 10.
Comedy then carnage. Carnage then comedy. Which is exactly what you get with Venom’s sequel, and it is perfect. The whole time I went back and forth between laughing and gasping which was great. That’s what I think makes the first one and Let There Be Carnage so great. They’re movies that don’t take themselves too seriously, you’re basically given the opportunity to just enjoy some crazy destruction while laughing.
But honestly the destruction comes second place to the dysfunctional relationship between Venom and Eddie. I mean come on, I love those two together! Just seeing them trying to live together is hilarious. I can only imagine what trouble those two will get into in future sequels. Which brings me to the insane mid-credit scene! I’ve been seeing people describe it as a doozy and since I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone so all I have to say is that it is exactly that a doozy. Most mid and post credits are kind of vague but this one is anything but!
I only have one complaint with this movie and that is the same one for the first movie too (which a lot of people would agree with) and that is the fact that it should be an R rated movie. More explicit violence and carnage is the only thing that would make it better since that would make it fit to the characters more accurately.
All of this combines to making Venom: Let There Be Carnage not only a great sequel but a great movie on it’s own and I would give it an 8 out of 10.
I just saw Dear Evan Hansen and honestly I underestimated how much I would cry. I went in expecting to cry since movies dealing with mental illness/suicide always make me cry but I felt like I spent 70% of the movie with at least tears in my eyes. Which anyone who watches emotional movies knows, is a good thing.
I also finally learned why people were all about this when it was a Broadway musical. The music combined with the message made it a really good movie so I can only guess what it would have been like on stage. I just had one problem with the movie, which I think was also a problem other people had, and that’s Ben Platt playing the main character. Obviously I understand why he played Evan, it’s just every time there was a lull in the movie I kept thinking how it looks wrong them trying to make him look younger and it not really succeeding. Because no matter what they did he didn’t look anything like a high schooler unlike the rest of the actors and actress who can easily pass as teenagers. So, it didn’t necessarily ruin the movie but it definitely didn’t help so all together I’d have to give it a 6 out of 10.
When I first heard about this movie I got super excited because I never heard of this character before and I was really interested to see what it be like. And let’s just say I was not disappointed. I feel cliché and like I’m copying even single commercial when I say this but this movie is indeed breathtaking, magical, beautiful, awe-inspiring, and every other word they like to use for every commercial ever.
I honestly enjoyed this movie so much and it is definitely one of my top 5 MCU movies(I’m a diehard Iron Man fan so nothing can really top those ones). I’ve talked about this before in another review but this movie had that spark! You know, that something special that makes it stand out from the other MCU movies. Whether that’s the flawless fight choreography (I mean seriously that shit was top notch), the amazing duo of Simu and Awkwafina together (loved them!), or Shang-Chi’s amazing jacket that I may or may not be sexually attracted to…just kidding(or am I?). But serious time now, I had so much fun watching it. It was action packed, funny, and emotional at times. This movie was made even better for me knowing that Simu wanted to play Shang-Chi so bad. For me when I know how much an actor or actress loves a character I can feel that when watching it and it makes it that much more better. So, as you might have guessed I give this movie a defiant 10 out of 10.
Oh man did I miss cons!!!! This was my 3rd Awesome Con and even though I only did one day this time unlike the other 2 where I went all 3 days it was still just as fun. So I decided to show my favorite parts of the con. Especially the awesome art by Amourable Art and the fucking bombass vest from Volante Design!
This movie was perfect! 10 out of 10!!! I mean how can it not be… its got Ryan Reynolds. But seriously this movie made every nerd/gamer part of me happy. Every part of it was great. The action sequences… great. The acting… great. Special effects… great. Comedic lines… super great. The unexpected celebrity and Youtuber cameos and easter eggs… super super amazingly great. And of course the entire plot/concept… Perfect.
You might think I’m going over the top but honestly I loved this movie. It was extremely fun to watch (especially since I could feel superior to my family since I knew who all the Youtuber cameos were and they didn’t). I literally can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like about this movie. This movie is without a doubt the best movie in theaters right now and hopefully is just what theaters need to get people to come back to the movies. So, once again this movie was a 10 out of 10 and everyone needs to see it!!!
