Why Does ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Look Exactly Like ‘Venom’?

Venom was the 2018 box-office success that I don’t think anyone expected it to be. It nearly made a billion dollars and ultimately revealed to Sony Entertainment that fans were enthusiastic on their take on Venom and his origin story.

I’ve watched the movie, maybe four times, and each time I have found it somewhat enjoyable but not that good. Tom Hardy gives an inspired performance as Eddie Brock/Venom but it’s clear the character wasn’t really written for an actor his age.

Still, he did his job and made Venom likable, the movie earned a sequel, and now we’re finally getting a chance to see the trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Here it is.

I saw this trailer and yeah, the beginning made me laugh, but then the trailer kind of devolved into crafting a storyline almost identical to the one for Venom.

Woody Harrelson looks ridiculous but at least his hair isn’t as wacky. The CGI for Venom and Carnage still looks kind of iffy and the story looks appropriately cheesy. I won’t be going to see this in the movie theater because I’m not that interested but I am interested to see it eventually at home.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

The Last Episodes of ‘The Clone Wars’ Are So Amazing!

So I decided to watch the last three episodes of The Clone Wars last night and I think I kind of forgot just how epic and fantastic the end of the seventh season truly is.

Revenge of the Sith is pretty much my favorite Star Wars movie because it is the darkest Star Wars movie. The tragedy of the Jedi and their instant fall as Emperor Palpatine has his diabolical plan realized is unlike any other event in Star Wars. It affects all Jedi and turns the story of Star Wars into something very serious and interesting, leading into the aftermath which sees the likes of Kanan, Ezra, Cal Kestis, Ahsoka, and Luke Skywalker having to navigate their way through a galaxy whose entire goal is to see them destroyed.

The Clone Wars is regarded as one of the best things to ever happen to Star Wars because it doesn’t take itself lightly. There is sadness weaved throughout the series and the last three episodes of The Clone Wars completely embrace the darkness of Revenge of the Sith in both tone and circumstance in a way that is astounding.

It’s a piece of the puzzle that I didn’t know I needed but now I can’t imagine not knowing about Ahsoka/Rex and how they both dealt with the events of Order 66.

It’s sad, it’s appropriately dark, and it actually makes Revenge of the Sith better.
