Why Am I Getting Excited for ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’?

I have watched Venom more times than I care to admit…okay I’ve seen it four times, and every viewing has never been all that fun. The beginning of the movie is boring, the end of the movie is boring, the only part that is somewhat entertaining is the middle section and that part doesn’t last very long.

The best thing about Venom however was the relationship between Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock (I still think Brock is written for an actor younger than Hardy but Tom just had to make it work, same goes for Michelle Williams’ character) and Venom so I figured the sequel, with all of that origin story nonsense out of the way, had the potential to be kind of fun.

Then I saw Woody Harrelson’s character, a psychopath named Cletus Kasady who seems to have some sort of connection to Eddie Brock (Brock probably got him put in the asylum where he’s being confined) and he’s just laughable to look at. He already looks ridiculous and his hair looks even worse.

So, with that in mind, I didn’t feel the urge to see this Venom sequel but after watching G.I. Joe Origins: Snake Eyes this July my philosophy for the rest of the year has been, “Oh what the heck. It can’t be worse than Snake Eyes.”

So, in roughly two weeks time Venom: Let There Be Carnage will be coming out and I’m kind of excited to maybe see it. The first reactions for the film have been positive but they were from fans at a premiere fan-event for the movie. The main thing that sprung from the fans’ first viewing of the movie was the hype over the post-credit scene. Apparently, it’s big!

And judging from the leaked intel, well, it’s a massive game-changer and will undoubtedly lead to some HUGE implications for the future of Venom.

So yeah, I’m kind of intrigued to see this film. Will I ultimately see it? I’m still twiddling my thumbs over that but ultimately, I can’t wait to watch Spider-Man: No Way Home.

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

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.

Tobias Beckett, a Rascally Mentor

It’s eight days away until Solo: A Star Wars Story hyperspaces into theaters and as part of this week long countdown I’m going to talk about every major character that’s going to appear in this latest Star Wars film and my excitement for them. Enjoy!

Tobias Beckett

Before I even knew which actor was going to play the iconic Han Solo it was announced that Woody Harrelson was going to play the role of Han’s mentor, a man by the name of Tobias Beckett, and I couldn’t have been more excited. Woody Harrelson used to be mainly known as the cute, innocent faced Woody Boyd on Cheers but that is undoubtedly not his perception anymore in Hollywood as he has portrayed tons of just horrible individuals throughout his acting career. When I heard he was going to be in Star Wars I knew he was going to be a perfect fit for a movie focusing on the life of a young smuggler and after seeing him in the commercials and trailers my view of him has not dwindled in the slightest.

When I saw Tobias Beckett in the first trailer I was beyond excited. He emitted everything I would have wanted in a scoundrel mentor for Han Solo and he got me super pumped. I absolutely can’t wait to see what tips and ideals he’ll have that’ll rub off on Han Solo in a way that’ll makes us look at the young smuggler in a different light in the original trilogy. Like for example, will he be the one to make Han, when we first meet him in A New Hope, that cynical person who shoots first and acts like he’s the coolest person in the galaxy? Or will he just be that sort of father figure Han, as an orphan, has never had and will instill in him that “good heart” Han is so well known for having?

These are questions that I can’t wait to be answered in Solo: A Star Wars Story and I couldn’t be happier that it’s only a week until this brand new Star Wars film arrives. I’m so excited! 🙂

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