Title: Venom
Post by: Perry on April 24, 2018, 05:57:18 PM
Love Tom Hardy. Other than Dunkirk, I can't think of a bad (overrated) movie he has been in. Not really.
However, I also can't recall a movie, set in modern times, that had sand buggys in them that turned out to be a good movie. 

Venom? Has both.
Oh boy which way will the pendulum swing?
 :D

I do not like the Carnage powers of the symbiote blasting out to bludgeon it's strike others. Then again, I haven't enjoyed Venom the character since the DeMatteis days, so maybe that power is current!

i'm not sure how i feel about this movie.  The storyline seems better than I initially thought it would be, but I'm a little leery of that CGI.  Not having Spidey in it also gives me a big pause.

Exactly how I feel. The scenes look top notch and well acted with Hardy's impactful presence and then you get the Venom action stuff and it just looks ... cheap. Like a low budget "B" movie. Not sure they could do better with it, just that it still looks off. Maybe it will show better later?

I agree the trailer looks a lot better than I had expected but I've never cared for Venom.  I doubt I'll be seeing this one.

After trailer 3... I just don't know what to think of this.

I know I will not step foot in a theater for this.
(Not that I was going to beforehand)

Same here.  And only a "maybe" for watching it on Netflix.

Probably gonna pass.  Just doesn't really interest me.

I can think of one.

Okay, alright, while this isn't a total change for me, I am a little, just a tad, more hopeful about this after seeing this final trailer.
Am I still nervous, oh yeah, but with this clip I can at least see the potential in the effects that I could not see before.

Maybe this won't be as bad as I feared?

I'll see it because I'll have to know.

Know what it's like. Know how bad it is. I'll have to know for myself. That way I can ask "why" when it's over.

The hospital I work for gives employees free movie passes for their birthday so I decided to use mine on Venom.  I'm glad I did.  Only because it meant I didn't pay real money to see this movie.  Once again, Sony shows why they shouldn't be allowed to make Marvel movies.
