Let’s Mock Venom: Let There Be Carnage a Little Bit

Now is a good time to poke some fun at Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Remember that movie? Came out a little while ago? It came out long enough ago that the internet’s various movie mocksters have gone ahead and produced their YouTube videos. And they make for nice easy shares on this random Thursday.

For example, how about an Honest Trailer?

Always a treat. Leave it to those nice people to take a movie down a few notches.

And then we’ve got How Venom: Let There Be Carnage Should Have Ended.

It’s a good, enjoyable way to use the internet. And soon Venom: Let There Be Carnage will fade into forgotten media…until Venom shows up in Spider-Man: No Way Home next week.

At this point, anything is possible.

6 Thoughts on Venom: Let There Be Carnage

We are now living in a world where the Venom sequel might just top most of the major Marvel Studios movie releases this year. Venom: Let There Be Carnage exploded at the opening weekend box office, earning more than $90 million, beating the three day opening weekend totals of both Black Widow and Shang-Chi. Granted, these are pandemic numbers, but still! Venom 2 is apparently a popular movie!

Movie Rating: 6/10 – Pretty Good

I saw Venom: Let There Be Carnage opening night, because that’s how I roll with most superhero movies. I was a lukewarm fan of the first film, finding it to be a rather dumb affair, held aloft solely by the insane fun of Tom Hardy’s dual lead performances. The sequel brings all of that back, while also finally bringing Carnage into a live action movie. Fans have been waiting for Carnage for a very long time. Did he live up to the hype?

Join me after the jump for my thoughts and review of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie. And feel free to share your own thoughts on the film in the comments!

Carnage is Everywhere in New Venom Sequel Trailer

I did not know this was coming today, but here it is! A new, fuller trailer for Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage! And this thing is chockablock full of Carnage everywhere!

Man, oh man! Would you look at that! They’re going full Carnage, it seems. He’s got the look, he’s got the viciousness. This is apparently what moviegoers want to see! I’m cool with it too, though I’m still salty that they didn’t use Jenny Slate as Scream in the first Venom movie. That would have been so much better!

I liked the first Venom movie well enough. It was a crap movie, but the Venom/Eddie Brock stuff was fun, and that looks to continue for the sequel. So we’ll see.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is scheduled to come out on Sept. 24…but you’ll notice that neither the trailer nor the description have that date attached. Considering COVID is on the rise again, I wouldn’t be surprised if this film gets bumped back.

The New LEGO Daily Bugle is a Menace to My Wallet!

Be still my geeky heart, LEGO debuted a gigantic Daily Bugle set yesterday! This thing is a beast, with like a dozen mini-figures, multiple settings and just so much going on that the picture I’m posting does not do it justice!

Leap it in a single bound!

Go to the official LEGO site and zoom in on some of these pictures, people. This is a thing of beauty!

Of course, this massive LEGO set is also going to set a person back $300. Will I pay that much for this giant LEGO dreamscape? Maybe…I haven’t decided yet. It comes out on June 1, so I have time to mull it over. The biggest problem is that I don’t have anywhere to display it. I’ve already got LEGO models on the floor in my little apartment because I don’t have table or shelf space anymore.

But this is still beautiful! There’s a bunch of heroes, including Spider-Ham, Daredevil and Miles Morales, and a ton of villains, including most of the original Sinister Six, like Sandman, Doctor Octopus and the likes of both Venom and Carnage. They even through in some anti-heroes like Punisher, Blade and Black Cat! How neat! Plus civilians like J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson. There’s a Robbie Robertson LEGO!

Behold the fire escape!

A LEGO Marvel set this size opens up a lot of potential going forward. Marvel hasn’t done too great with LEGO in recently years…largely because Marvel doesn’t have a lot of vehicles, and they were staying away from the likes of the X-Men and Fantastic Four for a while for stupid reasons. But perhaps we’ll get a Baxter Building one of these days? I’m holding out for an X-Mansion for damn sure. There’s so much potential for good X-Men LEGO!

Here’s hoping my wallet can survive the experience!

Venom: Let There Be Carnage Has a Trailer!

It’s happening! Not only did Sony get their Venom movie off the ground a couple years ago, with very positive results. But we are now also getting a movie where Venom fights Carnage! Oh what a world!

It’s mind-boggling that this has become a reality. I was only lukewarm on the Venom movie. The only thing I liked about it was the Eddie Brock/Venom character combination. And Jenny Slate was criminally underused.

But here we are with a sequel! And they’re going full Carnage, like they clearly wanted to do from the beginning. But the origin story is out of the way and now we can just do Carnage! Why not? It’s not like the first movie ruined hard-to-see dark blob symbiotes smashing into each other for the big screen.

I’m excited to see how they pull this off.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage arrives in theaters on Sept. 24!
