Whoo baby, what a movie! I’ll admit to being mostly lukewarm about Marvel’s superhero movies this year, despite liking all of them. But now we have Spider-Man: No Way Home and I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is such a powerhouse of a production company! I’m reminded by Marvel Studios is so damn smart when it comes to utilizing their properties and bringing the very best movies to bear on the big screen. Spider-Man: No Way Home is a superhero movie marvel.
Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!
I cannot heap enough praise on this film. I have been watching Spider-Man movies all of my adult life. The first Tobey Maguire Spidey movie came out after my freshman year of college, and I haven’t missed a Spider-Man movie in the theaters since. And I’ve enjoyed them all. I even liked the Amazing Spider-Man movies. And I especially loved Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With No Way Home, these filmmakers have done the seemingly impossible. They have taken all of our nostalgia, all of our expectations, all of our hopes and dreams, and have put together a truly spectacular movie, and a truly amazing Spider-Man movie on top of that.

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.
Our boy at Tell It Animated is back with Venom! Between all the man Spider-Man cartoons over the years, and those couple of movie appearances, we have all the looks of Venom!
Tell It Animated has now opened itself up to Spider-Man villains, based on the end of the video. That should be a fun one. Again, Spider-Man has had like a dozen different cartoons over the past decade at least. So there’s lots of options. Doctor Octopus definitely has a bunch of different looks, especially considering his reappearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home in a couple weeks. So he gets my vote.
And, as always, I recommend Robin! You’ve already got the Batman episode, and Joker, so definitely Robin. There are the original black and white serials, the 1960s show, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, then all the different animated versions of Robin. Plenty of options! Especially if you go for different Robins under the mask.
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?

The first full trailer for Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage graced our internet this week and I thought it looked pretty neat. I wasn’t too impressed with the first Venom film, but I liked it well enough. And me being a sucker for superhero stuff, I’m definitely going to see the sequel whenever it makes it to theaters.
As with most superhero movies, I do have a list of things I’m hoping to see in the film. Is it a reasonable list? Probably not. Are any of my demands going to come true? Maybe? It’s fun to speculate and hope nonetheless. Like, I hope this movie actually comes out on the scheduled release date at the end of September. I hope the resurgence of the coronavirus doesn’t close down movie theaters again. But mostly my hopes are nerdy comic book related, so let’s focus on those after the jump!Read the rest of this entry
