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.
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.
This might be late but as they say “better late then never”, so I’m going to dive straight in. All around Black Widow was a top tier movie but when you compare it to the rest of of the MCU it was actually kind of a low tier movie in my opinion. Obviously it had great acting, filming, special effects(you know the works), which is to only to be expected from an MCU so that doesn’t really amaze me anymore. Besides the basics I felt like the movie was lacking that special something that makes most MCU movies so great.
But I think the biggest reason why Black Widow was a let down for me was my massive disappointment with how they did Taskmaster. Now I’m no super fan or expert on Taskmaster but I was really excited to see what they did with the character. I was looking forward to seeing a badass cold-hearted mercenary who only cared about making money. I especially wanted that cliche line… you know the one that goes like “It’s not personal, it’s just business”. But instead of that we got a lobotomized trauma victim, which when you compare Taskmaster to the other Widows in the movie it wasn’t anything different. So, they basically turned someone who could have been a really unique character into a prop.
Now you’re probably thinking all of this means I think you shouldn’t see the movie but you’d actually be wrong. Sure it’s not the greatest movie but it’s defiantly worth it to see in theaters. Especially when you look at it as supporting movie theaters and even Scarlett Johansson. So, all around I would give the movie a 6.5 out of 10.
I don’t think it needs to be said but obviously this show has great acting, plot, special effects etc. which is to be expected for anything in the MCU. Now that that is out of the way I can get into the deeper stuff. This show, so far, is strange, weird, and definitely unique and honestly I have no idea yet if I actually like it or not. But I know for a definite fact that I am all in! I need to know what’s going on! Obviously I went in knowing things were going to be confusing from the trailers but I didn’t really “know know”, you know? So, now I have a new show to wait for every week!
Since I’m a huge nerd as you might have guessed I have already come up with some theories that I just want to put out there. I going to start this by saying yes I’m a huge MCU fan and I know I can easily look up info on specifics to confirm stuff but I don’t want to spoil things for my self.
First thing that is obvious is that nothings real but my 2 theories on that is that it’s either in Wanda’s head or Vision’s. But because Vision was just a little dead last time we saw him I’m more inclined to say Wanda’s but if it is Vision’s I’m guessing it’s something like Altered Carbon(another show I love) where a copy of his mind was stored somewhere before the unfortunate Thanos incident.
Second thing is S.W.O.R.D. is a thing. Now this is where my knowledge is lacking because I haven’t read the comics but I don’t want to look it up to confirm things right now. What I do know from the internet and a book I have is that S.W.O.R.D. is a thing. I know that it’s connected to S.H.I.E.L.D. but I don’t know if it’s better or worse then S.H.I.E.L.D. that I will leave up to the show to tell me. But I do have two theories about S.W.O.R.D.. One is that they’re the good guys and are trying to wake Wanda up from some crazy coma some yet unknown bad guy put her in for some nefarious reason or they are said bad guy and someone yet unknown is trying to save her from S.W.O.R.D..
And so the only way to find out is to keep watching while I also wait for any more easter eggs or connections to the rest of the MCU. Specifically any mentions of Stark because I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed my Tony fix and I will never admit to my self that he is truly gone. But anyways back on topic I will definitely keep watching!
Being the huge nerd I am I have always wanted to get a LootCrate or any of the other loot box brands but the one reason I wanted to get was the same reason I was skeptical to get one. And that is the fact that because I’m a nerd I get a lot of nerd merch and thus I was always afraid that if get a loot box it’s just going to be a bunch of stuff I already have. But my fears were put to rest when my friend go a 3 month subscription for me for my birthday and Christmas. So now it’s show-n-tell time!
Now time for the scary part lets see whats in this box!
So the first thing I noticed was that everything is green themed, whether that was a coincidence or on purpose I don’t know. If it is on purpose I hope the next one is red themed so I can get something Iron Man themed! Anyways I was happy with this haul because I didn’t have any of these, and I even learned about a new Marvel character I didn’t know about. All in all I can’t wait for my next box!
